This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

Yup.

So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.

Oh my god yes.

And can we just celebrate the fact that Lisa is reaching out and trying to build Meg back up? I love the girls-protecting-girls vibe I get from it

But then Peter chimes the fuck in and it’s just depressing because that ALL they do with Meg’s character.

But The simpsons is just SO different/better than Family Guy, for all of the above reasons. I hardly ever even care about FG anymore. But Simpsons will always be relevent and heartfelt for me.

this is the first time i have ever seen that people agree with me on how bad family guy is and for the same reasons. when i watch family guy i feel VIOLATED. something i get very odd looks for when i tell people as such.

I hate how much hate there is on this website on the one hand you have a lot of social justice activism and on the other ten you have major scale bullying every fucking where disguised as some kind of political statement it just goes to show people will always be people there is no hope

*squeezes your shoulder* Try to sail into better waters. It must be hard at times because it shows up almost everywhere on this website. If you took away forms of media, then no one would know anything as quickly. Then again, media of today puts everything right in front of your face and not all people want to see it or be involved with it, because maybe people are struggling already to handle things in their own lives that coming to online can be emotionally a struggle. Might add to it. I am really tired of it too, honestly. I just try to be active as I wish in my own way that I can handle. Even if you left out social justice activism in your words, the fact remains there is a hell of a lot of bullying on this website. Maybe here does not make a difference because it is literally everywhere. Maybe, try to focus more on things that make you happy that you feel comfortable doing. Things that you feel you have the strength and desire to do. I don’t know anymore either about pros and cons. This place here, sometimes it is like a war going around all around me.  So many wars, not just on the streets, but even on here too. There is war almost everywhere.

Therefore, it is important to find a place of peace in yourself or create a space that you only allow certain things or people to come into.
