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.

THIS! ^^^^^

This shit is why I do not watch Family Guy anymore, why I avoid everything with them in it. It’s disgusting that the writers thought it’d be funny to make Meg the butt of every joke - an abuse victim - just because they didn’t know how to write a teenage girl. I’m not shitting you, that’s the only reason why she’s treated like this. It’s not funny, it’s sick!

Fuck Family Guy, and fuck everyone involved with that fucking stupid show.

I admit I was curious of this crossover, but after reading that no Simpsons writers were in it - and therefore, no Simpsons landmarks in humor and the like, I lost interest. I might see it sometime later for the sake of snark, but by what I’ve read and my current state of mind, Family Guy doesn’t seem the kind of humor and show I’m interested in, honestly.

Excuse me, but I think dropping out of college to become a keyblade master is an awesome idea.
