I haven’t seen a post about this yet, so I’m starting one. Has anyone been watching the Rings of Power lately? I’ve been enjoying it a lot. It’s beautiful and it’s very “LOTR” and I think the vast majority of complaints about it are coming from super fans and racists.

For me it’s just nice to see a high fantasy show that isn’t chock full of nudity and rape and nonsense. I’m really having a good time watching this.

I know people are hating it very much, but for me it's a pleasant show. I don't like shows that make me stressed. This one doesn't, it takes its time to build up, and there's no "nudity and rape and nonsense" as you say which is a huge plus. All the female characters are wonderful, with the exception of Galadriel - she really is acting like an impulsive unsubtle teenager for a being that has lived for hundreds of years.

Some weird yet funny scenes like that one where Galadriel was riding a horse. Looked like some shampoo ad xD

I only winced when that human not-a-king (I'm bad with names, sorry) said something like "Ladies, gents, and anonies" and everyone cheered. I was very confused at first but then figured out that this must be the LOTR-equivalent of "guys, gals, and non-binary pals". I hope I am wrong but am afraid I'm not.

Oh no! I missed that bit about ladies gents and anonies, please no!

Perhaps it refers to rank as in ladies, gentlemen and peasantry or something along those lines. I am sure Tolkien would have been a TERF!

With you on enjoying a relaxing, beautiful, non demanding watch.

Tolkien was definitely a TERF. He specifically said the elves were equal in all things with the exception of the having of children.
