#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy


I mean…this is a really key issue, and one that absolutely needs to be addressed…But that’s not what this scene is about. These lines aren’t spoken at all. This scene is about the struggling father attempting to make ends meet and still treat his son on his birthday. The kid is quite clearly saying “I’m okay,” which makes the father sad that his son feels he isn’t allowed a treat because they’re too poor. It sets up a recurring theme in the entire series, Michael trying to make himself physically stronger through the Centipede Program and provide for his son, which puts these two as fairly integral characters to the show’s narrative.Why can’t we have discussions like this, which are absolutely vital to the progression of equal representation, without things being misrepresented? Make points by showing part of the abundant evidence that point out the lack of diversity in superhero movies. Conversations and scenes like this don’t need to be fabricated. Does that not detract from the very important points that need to be made?
