i am the biggest dick lover of them all
not so fast
I try to be as fair and unbiased as possible when taking a look at controversial media (particularly media that is considered controversial for reasons related to sexism, sexual assault and rape) because it is an issue that is extremely close to me as both a victim of rape and, frankly, a person in general. When Kill la Kill was first subbed and introduced to English-speaking audiences it was received with mixed reviews. Some hailed it as a piece of revolutionary, feminist media and others criticized it for being sexist and damaging to people everywhere.
Under normal circumstances, I would wait until the entire show had aired before passing judgment but after watching some 16 episodes of Kill la Kill I have come to a conclusion, and unfortunately it is not a positive one.
to this point i hadn’t watched Kill La Kill mostly out of disinterest but after reading this i am so fucking glad i have never seen it. every single thing that i have seen about this show makes it sound absolutely awful and male gaze-y as opposed to this revolutionary vanguard of feminism that some people make it out to be.
and before anyone is like “oh well you can’t say anything about it because you haven’t seen it,” fuck you: i don’t have to watch something that I KNOW BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT is going to - 1) anger me and 2) trigger me on multiple accounts - just because you think my opinion is unfounded.
