Apologies for the length of these pictures but I thought it was important to make sure that the timeline of the conversation was kept.
This? This right here is why we need to continue to have the conversation about the need for more diversity in Star Wars. This right here is why we should refuse to be silenced. This right here is a perfect example of one of the dudebros who refuses to grow up and share his sandbox with anyone else.
This is why I am going to continue to speak out about the need for more women in leading roles, more people of color in leading roles, and more aliens in this science-fiction universe. Because Star Wars deserves better than this and because Star Wars is a vast franchise with films, books, comics, and a TV show that SHOULD NOT BE LIMITED TO DEFAULTING TO A STRAIGHT WHITE MALE AS THE LEAD THE MAJORITY OF THE TIME.
We can do better. We deserve better. And I’m not going to let people shut me up about this with tweets like these.
EDIT: The conversation continued. It got worse. Also, my original article for Tosche Station about Diversity In Star Wars.
