On August 17, Netflix released a trailer for its upcoming Wednesday series, which features the eponymous character inflicting a devastating injury on a white student that a media outlet described as “castration.” Should people complain and cry about it, or react in a very different way?

The trailer begins with some shots from Wednesday at Nancy Reagan High School where all the preppy white kids are staring at her with her gothic look. What originality.
Somewhere around the 0:20 mark, she approaches what appears to be the high school water polo team that is in the middle of a practice. After a back and forth with a boy (Dalton), Wednesday drops two bags of piranhas into the pool and as they launch into a frenzied attack, his voiceover says, “I’ve done the world a service; people like Dalton should not be allowed to procreate.
The boys scramble to get out of the pool but Dalton fails to get out in time. As he is halfway out of the water, we hear biting noises, see a lot of blood dripping from his waist, hear him scream and watch Wednesday smile.
The AV Club summed up the incident with the headline: “In the first Wednesday teaser, the consequence for castration is boarding school.
Maybe the actual series will show that the injury isn’t as horrific as the trailer makes it look, but since the trailer really wants us to think it’s really that horrific, we’ll just go with that for the moment. And then we’ll ask: should people start complaining about how funny Hollywood thinks it is to portray a white college student suffering a devastating attack on his reproductive organs?
No. Instead, people should just write it down and now feel free to tell stories about catastrophic attacks on the reproductive systems of non-white women (school-aged or older).

Cue the screams – not just progs, but conservatives and libertarians. ” You can not do that ! ” they say.
“Yes we can. Hollywood has set a precedent.
“But that doesn’t mean we have to lower ourselves to their level!” We must take the high road!
“What is honorable in surrendering? I do not prefer.”
“Plus, the Addams Family has always been into dark stuff like this! You can’t argue with it!
“Great. Then no one will object to dark stuff going in an entirely different direction.

“Extremism on both sides is what tears us apart! And we can be sure progressives will call us ‘Racisssss!’ and cancel us – or do something even worse – if we go that route! »
“I’m stepping away from you now because this conversation is pretty boring.”
Seriously, it’s time to realize that Hollywood – and progressives as a whole – have nothing in common with us on a fundamental level. There is no point in complaining or arguing with them any longer.
In other words, they don’t like us and nobody can do anything to change that. Too long to recognize this utterly clear truth.
Just play by the rules they have set. And it is possible to do this without becoming hysterical.
In fact, if you haven’t read this article with a Ben Stein voice in your head, feel free to re-read it that way, because that’s the tone in which I write this. It’s just a jaded statement on the state of modern times.
In short, what I’m saying is that the focus should be on reciprocity and not on “Look what the progressives are doing!” After all, if people don’t understand reality in 2022. . . well, it’s on them.
So Netflix and Wednesday are going to do whatever they are going to do. In the meantime, we should do the same.
