I have to apologize for backing the racist/sexist/bigot media narrative from earlier. The media certainly does do that, but in reference to Star Wars, I think I am conflating specific interviews/interactions/comments, and building up an image in my mind of TLJ champions strawmanning the reasoning of TLJ detractors as frivolous, hypocritical, nonsensical and mean-spirited. Of course I hate when racist/sexist/bigot/homophobe is thrown around lightly, and yet here I am doing it myself!
"For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do." (Sorry Hassat, we have to cancel our short-lived social club).
 
I do remember reading an article very early on that specifically blamed the low fan rating of TLJ on RT as a "directed hate campaign" or "hacking the system", which attempted to erase any legitimate criticisms people have had. That may have been where this originated, but I should have known from the get go that even giving in to that would eat me up. I see Mutilator mentioned some of those above. 

 

I guess what I'm saying is, I regret and ask for forgiveness for any contributions I've made to aggravating this situation.

I just want to talk Star Wars, man! I don't mind disagreements, but I guess I'd rather try to find things we have in common rather than keep stoking the Disney Star Wars flames!

Some people act like there were no lead women or people of colour in the SW films before disney took over lol. They obviously forgot about Leia, Padme, Mace Windu, Lando.

 

 

This makes me curious. Can you give an example? I've been keeping up with Canon for the last 1,5 years now through YouTube (It's really hard to get comics where I live and I simply can't keep with reading the novels) and couldn't spot any major contradictions. The only thing I thought was wierd is how the whole "Poe is hothead and needs to learn" arc was already done in the Poe Dameron comic, but I guess that's because TLJ was already written before TFA came into cinemas and the comic was written. 

 

 

As someone who has most of the Disney released content, there are a lot of contradictions between themes and ideas that have been created in the Disney verse and the last Jedi. One example is that Poe Damions parents were rebel pilots which is why he's loyal to the resistance/rebellion, yet RJ completely disregards this when he makes Amilyn (who is portrayed quite differently to the other content she has appeared in) believe that Poe is a traitor even though she would have known his parents... like WOW...

I know. I was the one who pointed that out in the first place. However that's not was your defense was, your defence was that:

 

Which in itself implies a one way mistreatment because you are perceived of being too negative.

 

So I ask you, where are you a Pariah?

It's clearly not here. This site has an overwhelming negative bias against TLJ and New Star Wars

I've never heard of Star Wars Hub, I just went there for the first time and I can't find those pro-Disney posts you're talking about?

Just look at these posts
 

Unless there is some hidden pro-Disney page I can't find on that facebook, where is it?

The star wars reddit has healthy discussions with both critiques of the film and people who like it, so it can't be there.

 

4chan is heavily against everything that is non-Lucas Star Wars, so I can't imagine you guys would be a pariah there.

 

So where are you a "pariah of the fanbase"?

Most of disneys content has been good in my opinion. The movies and games have been the only dissapointments. 

 

My biggest gripe with tlj is that it ignores all of the establsihed sw canon this far amd sort of makes me wonder why i even kept up to date with the canon sw universe if parts are already been disregarded by newer content. And that has what tlj has done. Its shat on everything released by disney thus far

so disliking TLJ because it was a bad film with bad writing, unnecessary stories being told, bad jokes makes me toxic? Mmkay

 

That's such a childish point of view

This will sound harsh but since the tv show has passed the books. The quality of the writing has gone down hill. They arent bad writers but judging from the last two seasons of g.o.t. im not too sure they are the best candidates for the job. Im sure they will do much better than rj though
