One of the best examples of artistic integrity on a corporate scale.

I can’t be the only one who finds it interesting that “product of its time” is being used directly alongside “still wrong back then”. Most (privileged, white) people use “product of its time” to avoid admitting that something was wrong regardless of its era and to excuse their repeating it.

This is so important, you guys. Far too often people talk like “products of their time” should be buried or hidden and go unviewed.
I don’t think that’s true. I think it’s not only good but also important to look at things made in the past and consider them with knowledge of their context. Not to excuse their context or claim their context doesn’t matter, but because it’s only through knowing about it that we can truly understand not only history, but the past of the things we love.
Adding a disclaimer disavowing those old views (but accepting responsibility by acknowledging that they matter) is a really awesome way to acknowledge that.

  •  hey I just met you

  •  but I read all of your fanfiction in a single night and I cried over all of it and I finished the latest WIP at like four a.m. but it ended on a cliffhanger and I can't stand not knowing and I dreamed about it last night and I'm going to live in constant misery until it's resolved
  •  so update maybe

This will make a lot more sense to people who have seen the movie.

Hill: What does S.H.I.E.L.D. stand for Agent Ward?
Ward: Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.
Hill: And what does that mean to you?
Ward: That someone really wanted our initials to spell SHIELD.

I wonder if for the auditions for Teen Wolf they were asked to scream in pain convincingly.
