If you’re not a feminist, you either don’t know what feminism is, or you’re a bag of dicks.
That is all.
and of course it varies depending on if you’re a WOC as well.

Casting appreciation gif.
This seriously pisses me off because TWO men of the “correct” ethnicity/race were asked to play the role of Khan. I don’t remember their names because this back when Into Darkness was in casting yo but they BOTH DECLINED.
So there’s a HUGE difference between “well, we asked the best in the business and they both said no, so we should go with another actor of the ‘incorrect’ race who is also very well suited for the role” and doing what the Hunger Games did which is literally only let white girls audition for Katniss.
When actors decline there is fuckall you can do. It’s shitty, no doubt, that Khan ended up being white, but BC did a great job in the role, while knowing he was third choice. I won’t begrudge him for taking it, and I won’t begrudge the casting crew for going with him after their best actors declined.
Wow. They asked two whole brown actors. Because, of course, there’s only two brown actors in the world capable of playing Khan. Abrams really did everything he could there, didn’t he?
Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t seen it yet, I’m sure Benedict did a great job. But I really, really doubt that other brown actors would not have jumped at the chance to play one of the most famous brown Hollywood villains of all time in a multi-million dollar film franchise.
They cast BC because he’s famous, and beloved. Yeah, he’s talented, no denying. BUT SO ARE PLENTY OF BROWN ACTORS. Abrams should have cast one of them instead. BC has fifty billion roles ready and waiting for him. How many really important, key roles such as this are there for brown actors?
