There are unlimited problems with the “Let People Enjoy Things” (henceforth abbreviated to LPET) approach to art and culture, first and foremost among them the fact that franchises in question (GoT and Marvel Comics) are multi-billion-dollar corporate entities engineered to entertain in the same way Doritos are made so that you can’t eat just one. These are some of the most profitable media empires in history, and they will plainly not be harmed by a Twitter user posting about why they personally don’t like them.Kate Wagner (of McMansion Hell fame) fires a salvo in the ongoing Twitter argument: Let people enjoy things, Y/N?
Bonus: the original comic, with full (and perhaps surprising) context
