I’d like to see a movie where the effeminate man of color is the hero and he takes down the hypermasculine white male villain
No, I’d say the show does a great job of representing the typical 18-34 male with Larry, with his constant need for validation, attention, and the world to revolve around him.
not to mention Bennet’s quest to prove that he’s a man, Pornstache’s overcompensation that disguises his vulnerability, Healy’s struggle to make positive change that is frustrated by his need to be loved by a woman, and Caputo’s exploration of his desire to control the world around him and whether or not he wants to do that.
men are quite accurately represented in the show, the only issue male viewers seem to have is that these men display the warped nature of man’s dominance, and the idea that their superiority is not perfect and noble is offensive.
men are always crying about something. wah.
Gee fellas, isn’t it infuriating to have your entire group reduced to basic token characters with stereotyped roles and personalities?
ISN’T IT ANNOYING?
Welcome to the issue that women, GSRM folk, and PoC have with pretty much the entire rest of the entertainment industry.
SERIOUSLY this show has amazingly written characters, that does not bar the men at all. The men in the show, like the women, display imperfection so flawlessly we forget they are characters. You notice no one in the show is exempt from having some event in the past that seems to justify their actions? That’s because people are dynamic. They aren’t a rigid character map rejecting every change that is written for them so that they are predictable and easy to fit into a situation. They experience their lives and the lives if the other characters naturally, that is, with mistakes that, as viewers, are almost idiotic to make. And still the characters’ actions make sense and are not random. They may not always be predictable, but they aren’t out of the blue either. That’s because they are damn well written characters.
The show is gold, the women are unimaginably great, and the men are perfectly representative. If men didn’t want to feel so hurt by the stereotypes portrayed in the show, we shouldn’t have made it so easy.

I came out to attack people and I’m honestly having such a good time right now
you sit down to watch the lion king with me. i point out that leafcutter ants do not live in africa within the first five minutes. you begin to realize that you have made a horrible mistake. i continue to point out every usage of a tiger’s roar in place of a lion’s. you are at the door, but it is locked.
