Why My Favorite Show Is Horrible

1738 words - 7 pages

Let me preface this essay by saying that I love the show RWBY. It is actually my favorite show at the moment, but I'll be the first to admit that it does have some massive problems. From unimportant characters stealing the spotlight and inconsistent characterization to problematic behaviors and queerbaiting, RWBY is not exactly difficult to criticize.Let's start with Jaune. Here we have a background character who frequently takes over the show for no apparent reason. His plotline is not in any way relevant to the show and yet it keeps resurfacing. In the first volume, he had a complete arc full of development, while the four protagonists where still very flat and lacking. In the newer volume, not only were his scenes meaningless, but also often offensive, as you can see if you pay attention to his interactions with one of the main characters, Weiss. He spends an alarmingly large portion of volume two repeatedly asking her out and bothering her even after she has made it excessively clear that she wants absolutely nothing to do with him. Actions like this are actually a big problem in modern society, because men are always bothering women without end, thinking that their saying no actually means yes. Even worse, Weiss is actually chastised, and by another female character at that, for saying no, with the line "And that is why they call you the ice queen," (Rooster Teeth). To make it worse, the whole thing is played off for laughs. Many men nowadays seem to think they have a right to women and their bodies, and it's scenes like this that are the reason why. Jaune only stops bothering Weiss after he sees her with another guy, which only reflects further on his stupidity since there was nothing going on between them at all. Then, in what I think was supposed to be some twisted form of redemption, but was also a display of horribly inconsistent characterization, he goes on to criticize the guy he saw her with for not going out with her. As the conversation continues, it only goes to further treat Weiss like nothing more than an object to be attained. Honestly, the only good thing Jaune does in this show is keep his promise to Pyrrha and wear a dress to the school dance.Now, it's finally time to cover the wonderful topic of queerbaiting! Queerbaiting is a fairly new term, and thus is not currently contained within any more official dictionaries. According to Urban Dictionary, it is "When people in the media (usually television/movies) add homoerotic tension between two characters to attract more liberal and queer viewers with the indication of them not ever getting together for real in the show/book/movie." The writers of the show have stated that they added scenes into the second season that suggest characters are gay or lesbian (AfterBuzz TV, "After Show w/ Miles and Kerry"), only to later put them in scenes that declare them as strictly heterosexual. Many of these scenes are not difficult to spot, and include the scene during the food fight in...
