As does the human approach of "freakish monsters vs good ordinary folk", which Xavier has had to deal with a whole lot more of in his life than she has in hers. The fact it's lessened somewhat now than it was before, is thanks to him, not her.
Well, yes, and she doesn't even disagree with that.
Her basic point "We need to have humans and mutants seeing each other as just folks" is fine, but it's both hideously simplistic and naively expressed. -
Gonna have to flat-out disagree with you here. It's
a hideously simplistic point, any more than "I want to focus it on being a blessing and not a curse" is, and it's not exactly naive either, she has had some very hands-on experience in the area and a view based on what is-to-come.
Also to the point, while you're talking a lot about how the idea is presenting, who she's presenting it too, etc... in terms of the meat of the idea, it is still a rather relevant argument to make.
-She has no idea what Xavier has sacrificed and given up to get even THIS far.-
It's not like she doesn't know his history, but more to the point I think Xavier would be one of the first to say that he of all people should not be off-limits for people to tell their views on mutant-relations to because of what he's gone through.
Hope definitely could've been more diplomatic... but she is not wrong for presenting the point to him.
Which is why it's important that she's NOT saying it to them in an aggressive manner.-
What she actually said was a fair bit worse there to the subject in question, so I'd disagree with that.
What you say does matter, not just how one says it.
