does any one know the season and episode?
It’s their latest episode, the last one of.. 17? or 16? Idk it’s at southparkstudios.com the last one.
I liked this episode because it didn’t side entirely with anyone at all. It just sort of presented the absurdity without much alteration. Wendy in this episode, is your average radfem. She starts off with a great idea (that we don’t need to photoshop ourselves to have self-confidence, and we shouldn’t treat the airbrush like it’s reality), and an important life lesson. However, in the pursuit of righteousness and zealous demanding of adherence to her worldview, she ends up alienating all of her friends and gets into a lot of trouble, mkay. In fact, at the beginning of the episode Wendy was kind of being supportive of the girl everyone was giving shit to for being ‘ugly’, even if she was hilariously backhanded about it. She gets revenge against Wendy later on in the episode when Wendy’s crippled spirit inevitably leads to the collapse of Wendy’s own self-esteem. She was also responsible for kicking off the photoshop frenzy in town which only further infuriated her.
It’s important to want to do the right thing, but if you make a warpath that tramples all over the bystanders who would otherwise be your allies with more persuasion, you aren’t doing good activism. You can’t really expect the entire world to know what you know. Surely it would serve us to remember that we don’t even know the first thing about most others.
