Charles Martinet wasn’t the only one who departed from voicing a Nintendo character, the voice actress of Daisy, Deanna Mustard, has also stepped down. The new voice of Daisy is Giselle Fernandez who identifies as non-binary and is part of SAG-AFTRA. This is something that really worries me; that Nintendo is hiring woke pronoun losers to voice our beloved Nintendo characters. It could mean that Nintendo is now woke. A they/them is voicing a female character, and now all the losers on X are calling Daisy NB because she’s voiced by an NB. I was worried that this day would come.
“shouldn’t we criticize people based on their performance, not their beliefs?”
You drone on and on about all the people you disagree with and how they are hateful and are this and that and so on and so forth. You and I went back and forth about the phrase “just leave little kids alone” and you called that hateful. That is very hypocritical for you to say.
“It’s the same rabid hunt when people got fired for 10 year old tweets or the Chris Pratt church thing”
So this I agree with. All the cancelling and persecution over silly things are just purity tests to force people into tribes. There are important things to consider, debate and hash out. But often these things are overlooked for insignificant points and the goal there is just to persecute.
“Is it wrong to support people having rights and not be treated like shit?”
Not at all. But that’s a 2 way street. I don’t want innocent Palestinians killed but I don’t want innocent Israelis killed either. Folks should be supporting people, human beings, not a particular country they have never been to and likely don’t have any idea what is really going on there. The confusion here is many saying pro Palestine things often means that they hate Israel and possibly Jewish folks. I am not saying that is always the case but it’s often enough so that it’s hard to pick apart any nuance.
Most people in the west who feel the need to always pick a “team” have no business shouting anything about Israel or Palestine. We don’t live there and we are not subject to the consequences of what is going on and I doubt many have enough knowledge to fully understand the paradigm. Most of what is being said and repeated are untruths, lies and often propaganda.
