When you belong to a minority, there’s one common tactic you can use to put pressure on companies…
And that’s exactly what LGBTQ writers in Hollywood have just done.
But that’s not all they want.
They are also demanding Hollywood studios take action against states that have passed “anti-trans legislation” — which presumably refers to laws banning transgender drugs and surgery for minors, as well as laws prohibiting transgender women from competing in girls’ sports.Breitbart News
This is very typical of those on the Left.
They won’t do honest work to get to where they want to be.
They’ll simply whine about oppression or discrimination until a company feels guilty enough, or gets boycotted enough by other leftists, to hire them.
It’s a disruptive, simple, and very weak-minded strategy.
This is from letter the writers wrote.
The industry’s storied history is also one steeped in decades of codified bigotry against the LGBTQ+/queer community,” the committee said in the letter, which was timed to coincide with Pride Month. “The portrayals of Hollywood’s past — and present — are responsible for exacerbating harmful stereotypes and stigmas that have persisted through generations.”
The committee said 22 percent of its members reported having been the target of “overt discrimination or harassment” based on their identity, with the number jumping to 57 percent when factoring in microaggressions.Breitbart News
It’s no surprise this was timed for Pride Month.
There’s so much discrimination, they say…
But it can wait until the timing is perfect before they say anything.
Besides, ‘microaggressions’ is a nonsense concept dreamed up by woke academics, and doesn’t mean anything tangible.
All of this means this whining should be put aside and ignored.
Liberals derive their power almost exclusively from having their moaning listened to.
If companies stop doing that, their influence will shrink by a lot.
