Shonda Rhimes on seeing yourself reflected on TV

lisystvthoughts:

Interesting. Shonda Rhimes thinks everyone she should themselves reflected on TV.

I fully agree with her.

But it makes you wonder why her shows always do disability so offensively and where all the disabled actors are. Yes she has straight actors playing gay characters, but she’s also had gay actors playing straight characters so the real-life diversity has always been there.

As long as we are willing to sit by while one person is not free, none of us are free,’ says Shonda. Well and good, but…’nothing about us without us’ is a slogan too.
