    I both agree and disagree with the article's take on Tolkein's racial perspective. He was definitely outwardly anti-racist, as evidenced by straightforward anti-racist Aesops in his writing. He also had a strong tendency toward blatantly using real-life ethnic markers and North-South/West-East oppositions to designate large groups of characters as genetically/nationally evil. Probably it didn't register to him that he was contradicting himself.

    Anyway, my reaction when I heard about this series was, "why do we need every piece of backstory in famous media properties expanded into an entire story now?" Then I remembered that's exactly how Tolkein operated, and his influence might even be responsible for the trend.

    i also understand about young elrond being annoying. But also Galadriel was annoying as well. but lets not forget elves have always seemed to have some sort of ego. I see that they'd be even more arrogant in their younger years.

    aye thats exactly how id expect an elf to behave

    i think having such long life spans is what gives them a feeling of superiority lol

    plus if they were perfect from the start there is no room for character development

    a great example is steve from stranger things, in the first couple of series he was a total douchcanoe but by the end had grown on you and was a fantastic leader and lovable etc etc

    @alianovna_94

    j.r.r. tolkien, a devout catholic, articulating a perfectly clear understanding of trans/non-binary existence in “the silmarillion.” this novel was first published in 1977. tolkien began writing it as early as 1917. killin’ it.





    RACISTS AND TERFS





    In 1938, Nazis demanded to know if ‘The Hobbit’ author was Jewish. He responded with a high-class burn.



    J.R.R. Tolkien hated Nazi “race doctrine” and no problem telling his German publishing house about it.
