Daripada bengong, dan mondar mandir gak jelas di takor or kansas. Mending kita bahas soal Pilrek UI. Setuju?

Siapin kopi, bakal panjang nih pembahasan. Ehehe

#PilrekUI
Yang mau gua bahas bukan soal siapa calonnya. Tapi soal sistem pemilihan rektor yang agak gimana gitu. Kacrut sih menurut gua.

#PilrekUI
Oiya, kalo klean mau tau siapa aja calon rektor UI di Pilrek, gugling aja. Pasti langsung nemu. Dah banyak media yang beritain.

Here's the thing about people objecting to recastings of fairy tales with non-white, or disabled, or otherwise reimagined protagonists: they know little and care less about the long, cross-cultural and robust history of those tales.
(I'm leaving side the racism inherent in their reactions for the moment, because it's so screamingly obvious in every tweet they make, and other people have demolished their claims of "I'm not a racist but..." far more effectively than this white woman could. #morepowertothem )
Back to fairy/folk tales. It's not just white fragility on display here, although god knows... it's a fundamental ignorance & lack of damn respect for humanity's capacity for telling stories about the human condition that transcend johnny-come-lately artificial racial categories.
