Alrighty, time to let some inner rage out on the interweb about some intergalactic craziness. 

Have I got you interested or intrigued? Ok. I’ll stop with the ‘In’s”

Recently what sparked this oh-so-glorious little rage-osity rant were a little compilation of numerous posts about the new Star Wars movie.

We first saw the whole new rise of the revealed black storm trooper. THEN we saw a female lead. You know what we also saw? Some hidden sexism and racism arising from the shit piles.

To me, growing up, I was taught to not see in colour, but to see people for people. I do not judge people for their ethnicity, sexuality, gender,etc. I saw this talented man and woman as fantastic actors that filled out the roles that were sought out for the script. To me, they are people. They are equal. 

It really doesn’t matter if you chose someone who had a penis or vagina for a certain role. If they are a great actor- they deserve it. It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white or purple with fucking green polka dots. You know what? You’re still a good actor. 

Instead of focusing on the primary and most important focal point of the new Star Wars movie, people are turning it into a heated subject over what genitalia someone has, and how we should completely balance the gender roles.

If you take a step and look at it like I have, coming from a neutral stand point and seeing people for people, you will realize that by people bringing up these touchy subjects, we are still promoting segregation, in a sense. 

IF we choose to strive towards full gender and race/ethnicity equality, we will stop seeing people for what their reproductive organs and flesh colour are. IF we truly want people to be equal…stop mentioning the differences. Only you are continuing to segregate one group from another.

We should all be able to live on this amazing Mother Earth as one. Blessed be and be kind to your fellow brothers and sisters this holiday season. 

Ps- Happy Belated Yule / Winter Solstice to my fellow witches. xox
