slash4femme: Jessica Jones from the tv series looks down, frowning. (Jessica Jones: blue scarf)
 After watching Jessica Jones I'm kind of glad I stepped away from fandom when I did. Obviously I'm writing about it here, but I've severally limited my fandom presence and I think that's over all a good thing. 

Jessica Jones is all about women and characters of color, in a way that is both unapologetic and also in your face. These are real people with real flaws, who struggle in real ways against real odds. 

White man appear in this story as villains or bit players and that's pretty much it. They have no power outside of being the villains, their actions don't matter again outside of them being the villains of the story. There is no apology made for this, it isn't softened. Let's be real both Killgrave and Sampson are not just villains they are villains who manipulate and eventually threaten the lives of the women and people of color around them.    

I know already that this is going to be hard for fandom. There is a high possibility that Jessica Jones is going to make fans face a lot of stuff about how they think about gender and race. That's possibly going to get pretty ugly. Already I've seen people are saying stuff about Jessica Jones they would never have said about Daredevil. Jessica Jones is a race and gender fail waiting to happen within fandom and people will probably learn from that, but I' don't want to be around when it happens.

 One of the great things about them all being in the same version of New York is that we will probably see crossover. It doesn't even have to be them fighting together (although that would be awesome) I just want like Luke and Matt hanging out. Foggy once referred to Luke as the only superhero friend Matt had. Or Jessica Jones working as Matt and Foggy's body guard, which she did in the comics when Nelson & Murdock was being targeted and Daredevil needed to keep a low profile. 

These things are now possible on screen and it makes me so happy.

 so I will be watching Jessica Jones on the 21-22. I'll probably live tweet it and then post those tweets here. I might also live post here, but I will definitely be posting a review after I've seen the season. I am totally stoked for this (with so much Luke/Jessica love in my heart,) I saw the kinkmeme is already officially up and squeed.
