Rosario Dawson Responds To Transphobia Controversy

Probably not going anywhere.

In recent days we’ve not only seen drones at the bottom of the Collective gnash their teeth on Twitter with the silly #FireRosarioDawson hashtag.

But we’ve also seen Lucasfilm notables and their obedient legacy media lackeys also publicly complain about Rosario Dawson’s alleged transphobia, including Daniel Jose Older, E. K. Johnston, Jordan Maison, Rae Carson, Adam Lance Garcia, and the assistant producer for Looking for Leia, Catrina.

So it would appear that Lucasfilm is in desperate need of some good PR right now, and Anthony Breznican from Vanity Fair is up to the task of pretending to ask Dawson a spontaneous question so that she could respond with a carefully prepared response.

Breznican: Ahsoka does mean a great deal to people, and they’re deeply invested in who she is. So, Rosario, I want to ask you about something that’s outside of this story of The Mandalorian, and that’s the concern in the fandom about a lawsuit that was filed against you last year by a longtime family friend. The claim accused you and other family members of anti-trans bias, and you’ve called the lawsuit false and baseless. But what do you say to those Star Wars fans who hear this and believe the worst—that you are transphobic?

Dawson: Well, firstly, I just want to say I understand that, and why people were concerned, and are concerned. I would be too if I heard some of those claims. But I mean, as we’re seeing right now in these past months, and just recently, actually, the truth is coming out. Every single claim of discrimination has been dismissed by the person who made them, and as you’ve said, the fact that this is coming from someone I’ve known since I was a teenager, the better part of my life, and who my family was trying to help as we have many times in the past, it really just makes me sad. But I still have a great empathy for him.

Breznican: Court records show 18 of the 20 claims were withdrawn voluntarily without a settlement, and his lawyer left the case. Two counts remain alleging a physical altercation, and a judge will rule on whether that can move forward next month. There are people that would say, “Well, this is just another example of a wealthy, famous person overpowering the system.” So what would you say to those people who are unconvinced, both about this case and about what you actually believe about trans people?

Dawson: The reason that all of the discrimination claims were dropped is because they didn’t happen. I was raised in a very inclusive and loving way, and that’s how I’ve lived my entire life. I’ve always used my voice to fight for, lift up, and empower the LGBTQA community, and use my platform to channel trans voices, in fiction and nonfiction work that I’ve produced and directed. So I feel the record is really clear.

And all of that may very well be true. But unfortunately for Rosario, it won’t matter.

The Collective has decided to use Rosario as a target for their moronic virtue signaling. Rosario’s actual innocence is 100% irrelevant to them. All they care about is how railing against the bogus accusations make them feel, and look to their fellow idiot SJWs.

The highly “evolved” collective, collaborative, cooperative, community will never leave Rosario alone.

Remember what Josephina Vineyard told Vanity Fair:

Josefina Vineyard, who uses they/them pronouns, wrote to Vanity Fair. “But it is simply more realistic to assume that if one is accused of something so common as transphobia, that there is likely merit to that.”

All that matters to them is the accusation, not evidence. And they say it over and over again.

This is the Pandora’s Box that progressivism has opened. And you’ll never be able to close it.

George Lucas Discusses His Decision To Sell Star Wars In Detail

Consistently incorrect.

Ignorant moron Pete Fletzer from the Around The Galaxy Podcast once parroted a variation of this made up SJW narrative:

ATG5

George Lucas himself has now officially discredited that narrative in the recently released Star Wars Archives book. Pay particular note to how the fans don’t factor into his decision at all one way or the other.

Overtly stating that “they decided they wanted to do something else” also dispels the newly fabricated SJW narrative that the Disney Trilogy is what Lucas had intended to do all along, and helps explain why he would have felt betrayed as mentioned in Bob Iger’s book.

Ethan Van Sciver Dives Into The Hickel Hole

Not that hole.

ILM Animation Director for The Mandalorian Hal Hickel has a long and storied history here on this blog that readers can amuse themselves with. For those who aren’t familiar, Hal’s a combination of Chuck Wendig and Pablo Hidalgo on steroids, but far less intelligent than either. And now Comic Artist Pro extraordinaire Ethan Van Sciver has taken Hal to task on Twitter.

It’s always amusing when Hal attempts to paint himself as more intelligent than others. As we’ve seen on this blog over and over again, Hal barely understands the definitions of the words that come out of his own idiot mouth.

Yellow Flash also chimed in:

And now he’s treating fans in his usual manner.

Jordan Maison Calls Rosario Dawson “Problematic”

He’s missing a beard.

Official Star Wars Artist for TOPPS and contributor to starwars.com, Jordan Maison, wrote a review of the latest episode of The Mandalorian at cinelinx.com. Here’s what he had to say about Rosario Dawson:

Rosario Dawson’s casting as the character is somewhat problematic, however, and has been causing some fans issues since she was first rumored to take on the role. Last year, Dawson and her family became embroiled in a lawsuit in which it was alleged they harassed a trans-man, lobbying transphobic remarks, and even participated in an outright assault.

Dawson has gone on to say the claims were baseless and since then much of the person’s claims have been withdrawn. The problem, however, is that for a big portion of a community that are already made to feel on the outskirts, their concerns aren’t being heard. Hell, in a civil case where you’re up against a famous family’s money and attorneys, it’s not entirely crazy to feel the pressure to drop things (especially in a system that generally doesn’t work for minorities).

Here’s the thing, I don’t know what to tell you about it all. I DO know, however, there are a number of trans fans who are upset and wishing to be heard on the matter, rather than shouted down simply because a fan-favorite character is in play. So even if you already have an idea in your head about these allegations, perhaps take a moment to listen to others in the community, others who normally get shit on by others in fandom.

One of Jordan’s followers on Twitter called him out, and this was his response:
