I was reading a bit about Nick Spencer and Captain America and there is a *lot* of commentary that begins with “I like Nick Spencer's work. He's not a bad author. But…”
I'm like… if I had to get paid to feel obligated to say what a good creator this person was, despite being work that causes harm / being a bigot / being a rapist/murderer…
I'd be very, very, very rich.
Like, I mean, is it that difficult to say, because this person has caused harm, I refuse to look at their work? I refuse to even put it into consideration?
What would be the consequences? Well, you'd not look at their work. And yeah, you've narrowed the field a bit.
But the field is so. Fucking. Broad. There are so. Many. Other. People.
You'll have to look harder to find worthy work, but… is that such a problem?
Like, and that's like LITERALLY cutting off, say, the majority. I'm not even proposing that. Just cut out the assholes. What's the harm?
