: : : Judge not, lest you be judged.

BS. The above nonsense is very much a judgment. The idea that Charles and Snakebite have nothing to lose is part of your safe little fantasy. It creates an "us" (the real pros, the ones good enough to get a job, the ones who really understand what's going on) and a "them" (the unemployable malcontents who just want to upset the applecart). Oh, I know you never said that directly, but it's there. You're as judgmental as anyone. Which only means you're human. We all make judgments. But let's get this straight. Charles and Snakebite are part of the rather small and gossipy animation community of LA, and we all know that one's reputation is at least as important as one's talent and experience. When Charles and Snakebite speak up, they are taking the very real chance that someone down the road will not hire them because they're too political or controversial. You know it happens. So let's stop trying to invalidate everything they say with this little conceit that they have nothing to lose.
