To preface this, I am Jewish.
I was just looking at the Goblincore page, and I was a bit disappointed by the explanation of the controversy surrounding it. A lot of media depictions of goblins are antisemitic (especially in Harry Potter), and the aesthetic isn't exempt from this--goblincore's shinies and treasure hoarding feel a bit too similar to Jews being depicted as money-grubbing bankers. This would be okay if it were dragoncore or crowcore, but goblincore has that loaded history and it just doesn't sit right with me. One line in the Controversy section of the page mentioned that "There are Jewish people who are against Goblincore, but also those who are not." While I'm sure some are fine with it, I'm one of those who aren't. Just because one Jew says it's okay doesn't mean that every Jew agrees. One person doesn't speak for all of us.
What are your thoughts on goblincore?
