Okay

I never got this so I would appreciate if someone would explain

Why is an actor - especially a voice actor - being the same race or ethnicity of their character such a big deal?

I understand whitewashing the characters in animated movies is a big problem, but I’m talking about accurately portrayed poc being played by white actors, or, hell, even white characters played by poc actors.  Isn’t it called acting for a reason?  If I can find a guy who can nail the accent and or mannerisms of the character I want him to play, should I turn him down because a poc who fits the bill racewise but is a mediocre actor also tried out?

Now, this is hypothetical, but would you really get mad at someone for doing that?

Sure, someone who is actually asian in descent might better understand what it’s like to play an asian, but if the character in the film is portrayed accurately as an asian, what’s wrong with a white person playing them?

Half of the women I spoke to said , would he admit that’s he’s bit of a sexist, misogynistic — he sees women only in sexual terms?  (x)

This is it, this is how I’m going to explain privilege to the next one.

THOSE LAST TWO GIF THOUGH. MALE FEMINISTS, PLEASE TAKE NOTE. I KNOW YOU DON’T WANNA BE SEXIST BUT PLEASE LISTEN TO WOMEN IF THEY TRY TO EXPLAIN HOW SOMETHING YOU SAID/DID IS PROBLEMATIC AND TAKE IT TO HEART, THANK YOU!

I agree with him. If you think I’m being sexist, let me know and I’ll work on it. I won’t get mad, promise.

honestly this mindset works for any kind of privilege - if someone from an oppressed group calls you out, don’t argue. Fix it.
