I hate being fooled by media. I hate thinking that because shows like Orphan Black and Elementary and Orange is the New Black (etc.) exist we are moving in the right direction faster than we really are. Because every baby step we take forwards in representation and equality in media, we are dragged about seven or eight steps back by the same people who have had representation their whole lives and are not ready to give it up. And it angers me. It angers me that because there’s one person of colour on a show, I consider it diversified. It angers me that when one woman in a movie is not harassed for playing the cliche or for breaking the cliche that I somehow consider that a good move forward. Trans* characters are finally getting the respect and the exposure and the actual spotlight, but when these roles aren’t played by trans* actors, what are we really benefitting? I am tired of being complacent and I am angry that I am easily mollified by one or two bones when the over-stuffed gluttons who have been eating their whole lives get to eat the steak before they toss me the scraps.
