Where are those woke white people at!?

The amount of notes this doesn’t have bothers me…

"Open Casting" does not exist


In my screenwriting class this week, my instructor explained that if you do not signify a race or ethnicity, your character will be assumed to be white. There will be no clarification, no one will ask you to explain, the director and casting agent will create a whites-only casting call for auditions.

This obviously isn’t news. We know that the default for Hollywood is white even though mathematically, according to the demographics of California and the entire world, this is laughably illogical. 

I asked him how you signify that you want open casting in your script for any race or ethnicity because you want the best actor for the character.

He didn’t understand and started talking about words like “eurasian” in the descriptive lines following your character’s introduction.

I explained that I wasn’t asking about how to denote racial ambiguity (which is another favorite of Hollywood), rather an actual open casting call that wasn’t limited to white and white passing people.

He said he had never come across this.

Never, in his entire decade+ career, had he ever come across an open casting call. 

So when people say shit like, “oh well maybe they just got the best actor for the role!”, they deserve to have their faces slammed into the nearest available surface.

Stop shaming girls who are comfortable with their body, just because you aren’t happy with yours it doesn’t mean you should be negative about those who are…


i love the term “partners”
are we dating?
are we robbing a bank?
do we run a legal firm?
are we the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies and are members of an elite squad known as the special victims unit?
who knows.

Family: *says something racist*
Family: *says something sexist*
Family: *says something homophobic*
Family: *makes fun of people with tattoos*
Family: *tells you why you’re bad at life*
Family: why don’t you wanna spend time with us?




Here’s the thing about being pro choice that people don’t get…
You don’t have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That’s why it’s not called pro abortion. It’s an understanding that you can’t make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It’s pro I’m not the boss of everyone else.

This is important.

my exact feelings on this subject.
