Just thought of a beautiful comparison between friendships in Anne with an e and wtfock
*quite long and rambly sorry*
1.In Anne with an e when bash faces racism from the doctor,Gilbert takes him to another doctor in charlottetown and persuaded him multiple times to leave the bog.
how he gave his house to bash and his family,while he was away,and was supporting Mary in her last days
2.How when Marilla went to the avonlea doctors with delphine, and when she got weird looks she responded with “she’s a child,for Gods sake”
3.When Anne found out about aunt Josephines relationship with Gertrude, her initial reaction was that it was beautiful. She was also extremely supportive of Cole too!
4.Anne was also really kind to kak’wet and the other natives(the fact that their was representation in the first place was amazing) and was not frightened of them and she and Matthew went to the residential school to try and get her back
5.Mary’s eulogy in the newspaper
Now let’s compare this to wtfock:
1. Amber, in contrast to Gilbert, has done absolutely nothing.She never defended yasmina against racism, even posting selfie’s with the racists and slapping yasmina when she explained that she exposed the racists
2.zoë’s ”be kind” mentality has absolutely disappeared. Her,along with the other members of the girl squad were defending blonde ambition, who they already know have done bad things in the past: slut-shaming,body-shaming,slapping sander etc. My biggest issue is that these girls claim to be feminists,but they are absolute hyprocrites. My comparison to marilla is that marilla did not know delphine or bash very well at the time, but she still accepted a black man and his daughter(not to mention this was set in the 1800’s!).
3.Ah, the boy squad. They casually throw around homophobic slurs around and are just obnoxious. They also made there only POC member a homophobic fuckboy.Also none of the characters in Anne with an e were sexualise, which we cannot say for sobbe
4.There is absolutely zero good representation on this show. It is set in Antwerp,a large city in a western European country, there’s bound to be loads of POC?? As someone who lives in a Western European country, I don’t live in a major city or anywhere where you instantly think of when you think of this country(England), but there is still much cultural diversity??
5. None of the friends in wtfock could remotely think of doing this grand gesture to their friends of colour
