“I’m seeing a lot of white women at the top reinforcing old ideas”
I’ve already pointed out that today’s Lucasfilm is known for hating the white male, but they’re now making brave and bold civil rights strides, by creating a more inclusive and diverse space for their hatred. They’re now including white women.
Today the news broke that Leslye Headland will be heading a new “female centric” Star Wars TV series. It’s amusing how all Star Wars needs to be diverse and equal unless it’s female-centric. Then diversity and equality can be thrown out the window.
But Leslye has some things to say to the white women that Disney might hope will watch this thing according to IndieWire:
‘Russian Doll’ Creator Leslye Headland: ‘White Women Need to Step Up Their Game’
“Russian Doll” creator Leslye Headland had some strong words for her fellow white women at this week’s Variety Inclusion Summit. During a panel discussion that also included “Vida” creator Tanya Saracho and “Queen Sugar” producer Carla Gardini, Headland stopped the proceedings to call out what she saw as the white (pun very much intended) elephant in the room.
“I think white women need to kind of step up their game, to be quite honest,” Headland said. “Sorry, but I’m calling you bitches out. You really do. ‘Cause like, I couldn’t agree more with everything these women are saying, but I’m also seeing the silent killer, which is a lot of white women at the top who are kind of reinforcing a lot of old ideas.”
Headland added that many white people lack the language to explicitly demand diversity in their writers’ rooms, casts, and production staffs. In addition to creating Netflix’s smash hit “Russian Doll,” Headland directed three episodes of “SMILF” and wrote and directed the 2015 movie “Sleeping with Other People.” She emphasized that she was speaking from her own personal experience when she continued.
Also fun fact @LeslyeHeadland wrote the episode of Terriers I directed yeeeeeaaaars ago. We were BABIES.

“I wasn’t sure how to be an ally. I got so caught up in what kind of terminology I was supposed to be using, and being politically correct. And as I started to rise in television I started to get more blunt and start saying like ‘I would like a black writer.’”
“Because if I said diverse, you get ‘well, white is diverse,’ which is something somebody said to me. … I reached out to the women that I respect who are not white writers and directors and I said ‘what should I say? What language should use?’ And I think it’s worth it if you’re in a position of hiring power or green-lighting power to reach out to people that are not like you and say, ‘what can I do to be an ally? And how can I support writers of color and LGBTQ and disabled writers?’”
Headland added that her experience as a queer woman made her more sensitive to portrayals of gay characters.
“I find it a lot as a gay woman, with gay characters, whether they be gay men or gay women, where I’m saying, ‘that’s not a gay person.’ You basically want me to cast someone that you find attractive, straight white man.”
So there you have it. Lucasfilm has hired yet another woke, identity, race-obsessed lunatic. You can listen to this airhead say these ridiculous things courtesy of Variety:

HeelVsBabyface commented this morning and added her credentials.
Dataracer also had this to add:
Disney+ is making a “female focused” Star Wars series.
Feminists have been bullying male fans for years saying: “Our feminist agenda has taken over Star Wars.”
7 of the first 10 Disney SW projects featured a female lead character. pic.twitter.com/Paz6YggUlv
