i understand perfectly well that it makes far more sense to avoid controversial things when you're trying to appeal to a lot of people - it's still unpleasant to have your existence be something that's brushed over / something that's just an inconvenience for normal people

it takes a long time to make something socially acceptable - i see no reason to give up if the alternative is being viewed as a freak, regardless of any backlash or tolerance-exhaustion it provokes in people

movie people are easy to pick on, though - it's not like it's the only kind of workplace where people get harassed

either people care about actors more or journalists find it easier to write articles about them when it comes to discrimination
