Re the Disney #SnowWhite/dwarfs issue: People are trying to talk about this, at least, (video has discussion as goes on) but as with any action needed to right issues of inequality/discrimination/ableism, it's complicated BECAUSE OF THAT INEQUALITY. Thread.
Dinklage is spot on that Disney and society's representation of people with dwarfism is seriously problematic and overdue for change. While there are many Snow White variants that don't have dwarfs (as folkloric "magic creatures" or little people), removing this minority group...
...from any retelling of this now-iconic Disney version of the fairy tale is a form of erasure. People in this minority group are speaking out against Dinklage's statement as it has the potential to remove one of the few job sources available to them ("dream job" is the quote)).

Gal Gadot will play the Evil Queen in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of #SnowWhite. Image
Gadot will star opposite #WestSideStory star @rachelzegler, who was cast as the classic princess earlier this year. ImageImage
Since Gadot is primarily known for her heroic work in DC’s #WonderWoman franchise, her turn as the Evil Queen will give the actor a chance to show a more wicked side to her oeuvre. Image

I'm just fascinated with these huge right-wing outrage machines that can turn one paragraph in one opinion piece in one blog into a raging controversy. As I read the comments - which reinforce that "the Woke mob" is both ridiculous and dangerous - I wonder what the goal is 1/
The millions of articles building fake controversies out of nonexistent "cancellations" can't just be after clicks. This is coordinated, and used to drive a culture war wedge deeper. Distraction is a useful function, as are political wedges. But what's the end goal?
There's such a strong trend of catastrophizing tiny non-events into evidence of a "woke mob" that - what? Is dangerous to tradition? Is physically dangerous? Is (((Globalist)))? Needs to be stopped? Is the reason the reader will never vote Dem/Lib/etc? 3/

Remember this?

Among the dozens arrested were eleven senior princes, several current or former ministers, the owners of three major television stations, the head of the most important military branch, and one of the wealthiest men in the world,…
“It’s the equivalent of waking up to find Warren Buffett and the heads of ABC, CBS and NBC have been arrested,” a former U.S. official told me.
Both critics and supporters believe that the purge’s mastermind is Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who has had a meteoric rise since he was appointed by his father to be defense minister, at the age of twenty-nine, in 2015.
