So glad that Leftists aren’t infecting the TV shows they work on with their ideology…
This of course is sarcasm.
Supergirl has Lesbians.

As Andrew Marr observed a decade ago: ‘The BBC is not impartial or neutral. It’s a publicly funded, urban organisation with an abnormally large number of young people, ethnic minorities, and gay people. It has a liberal bias, not so much a party-political bias. It is better expressed as a cultural liberal bias.’
Why, then, is the government intent on making the BBC even more gay? In one of the less-reported sections of this week’s white paper on the future of the corporation, John Whittingdale lays down a target that 10 per cent of senior leadership roles at the BBC be filled by LGBT staff by 2020.
Nearly a year after we launched our ambitious strategy to hardwire diversity into everything the BBC does, today we’re unveiling the results of our recent and most comprehensive staff census that shows the BBC has met its 2017 targets – and is well on the way to hitting our 2020 goals:
- 14.5% of our workforce are from black, Asian or minority ethnic background, including more than 10% of our leadership.
- Over 48% of our staff are women – approaching the 50% target set for 2020.
- Over 10% identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender.
- More than 10% of our staff have told us they have a disability – already ahead of the goal for 2020.
Good thing Quotas never discriminate and are always fair and equal! 🙂
The executive producer of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” says that part of the motivation for adding a Muslim superhero to the show was the “political climate” after the 2016 election. He made the comments Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills.
“You might have heard there was this election,” said Marc Guggenheim.
“Not to get political, but something that we all gravitated toward in the writers room was making this character Muslim,” he explained.
The new hero will be introduced in the upcoming third season of the show. She is named Zari Adrianna Tomaz, a Muslim computer hacker from the future. Ironically, and rather unfortunately, the superhero is based on a character already introduced in comic books – named “Isis.”
To be clear, the ‘Isis” character is named after the Egyptian goddess of the same name, and not the Muslim extremist terrorist group.
Zaria Adrianna Tomaz will be portrayed by Iranian actress Tala Ashe.
“Representation is a really powerful thing,” said Ashe.

“When I was growing up watching television,” she explained, “I didn’t see anyone who looked like me. When I think of the kid version of myself, I think it broadens your perspective. What I think is so lovely about this show is that the Legends are this tapestry that represent America today.”
In an interview about her character, Ashe says that the Muslim superhero reacts to the rise of populism in 2017 and challenges the other heroes to change history to avoid the future dystopia she comes from.
The Ministry of Truth is nearly complete. Trump and us “assholes” who refuse to be assimilated are all that’s left.
