  1. very disheartening to see you guys posting and praising about something that would give JK Rowling money when she is transphobic.

    • I think it’s more complicated than that. I don’t agree with any of JK’s transphobic rhetoric and don’t want to support anyone who is anti-trans, but the article explains that it’s not clear if she would even be involved. The TV and movie companies already bought the rights from her — so to me at least, it’s unclear if she’d directly benefit at this stage.

      • Even if she isn’t involved, it’s her intellectual property and she therefore profits off of it. It’s really not that complicated. It’s actually fairly easy to look into how much she gets with the rights being sold. She profits off of any media as well as the theme parks.

        • That’s disappointing; if they can’t find a way to divorce her from this, I definitely won’t be tuning in. Related, now Twitter is saying there never was any series in development so we likely won’t get to that point.

  2. Your text is a bit misleading– Nia Dacosta will be the first Black woman to direct a Marvel movie, but not the first woman. Please don’t erase the strides women like Chloe Zhao, Cate Shortland, and Anna Boden have made 🙂

  3. Addison Rae is currently trying to steal from a smaller designer – who she’d previously worn merch from – for her beauty company so no one should be excited for it.

  4. Kamala Harris is Black AND South Asian-American. So there are TWO major firsts. Her mother is Indian, and her father is Jamaican.

  5. I love this week’s recommendations! I was nervous about the “ideal woman” one, but it was actually an uplifting read.
