I think you're misinterpreting the works as exploiting preexisting cultural artifacts for fun and profit as opposed to passion projects from personal experience. At least regarding the Duffer Brothers, I mildly-to-strongly disagree.

I don't think anyone is exploiting anything. I just think that a particular group of people is statistically predisposed to have experienced emotional arcs more similar to those of the characters on the show. I don't understand why everyone is so upset about it, or why I should pretend that that isn't the case.

Because it's an obvious fact that everybody intuitively understands, and pointing it out in the manner you did implied you might fly off the handle and go full SocJus, which made everybody nervous?

Hah. That's not my problem. Sounds like y'all are being triggered by some bad experiences.

Lol, I didn't expect this thread to erupt into all this nonsense. Anyway, I agree with nearly everything Bego said a few posts back. Bringing up race only ever does more harm than good. I watched Creed a few days ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it. But then I then discovered that other faggots on the Internet, had to make it about a load of racial ****, which only served to sour my feelings of the film. Just concentrate on critiquing the characters, and ignore the colour of their fucking skin.

I'm being triggered by the bad experience of reading this thread.

I supposed we should all stfu and listen to laifu. He's Asian, after all, which makes him the phenotypically most neutral in this discussion. We can't relate to his comments because statistically, we're predisposed to be overly defensive white trash. Also, it seems we're all American, experienced the 80s and experienced a whole bunch of things that happened in Stranger Things. I for one relate to the fat girl that gets killed early by an evil monster from a parallel universe and is never mentioned again. Story of my life :cry:
