Man, this is the advantage of our country. You are above the law. The laws over in your Canada are too strict. Here, you can do whatever you want.
“If you really believe that representation doesn’t matter, then why the fuck are you threatened by it? If not seeing yourself depicted in stories has no negative psychological impact - if the breakdown of who we see on screen has no bearing on wider social issues - then what would it matter if nine stories out of ten were suddenly all about queer brown women? No big, right? It wouldn’t change anything important; just a few superficial details. Because YOU can identify with ANYONE.
So I guess the problem is that you just don’t want to. Because deep down, you think it’ll make stories worse. And why is that? Oh, yeah: because it means they wouldn’t all be about YOU.”
While with family this Eid, remember those that are separated from their loved ones in Gaza, Syria, and Iraq. Remember those who have daily difficulty whilst trying to provide for their family. Whether they are spending their first or fiftieth Eid in a state of loss and mourning, keep them in your prayers.
