Hollywood is employing new software feature that alerts scriptwriters if they are not being “inclusive” enough, sparking fierce backlash from some in show business.
“The deal is that this new feature allows you to check the inclusivity of your documents to check how many LGBTQIAZBBT people appear in your new work,” one Hollywood producer told Big League Politics on the condition of anonymity. “It is ridiculous. At the same time it’s really totalitarian, when you think about. If this is the case, next we’re gonna were check for words we don’t like, then we’re gonna check for context we don’t like.”
Conservatives in Hollywood do not often speak on record, as doing so would amount to career suicide.
The software is called Final Draft, which has been around for awhile, and is used by nearly every scriptwriter in Hollywood. It has recently been updated with the new “inclusivity” feature.
“Final Draft is the standard format software for scriptwriters,” the source said. “It’s specifically formatted for scriptwriters, but it’s basically a word processor.”
Another producer told Big League Politics that the software will make the quality of movies worse.
“The fact that they call it ‘inclusivity analysis’ is pandering to an idea that’s going to movies worse,” the source said. “They’re specifically trying to get people to write their script, and get people to look in the mirror and see how ‘inclusive’ it is , and if it’s not inclusive, you’re not woke. It’s stepping on your creative freedom.”
Both the sources described themselves as “in-the-closet conservative producers.”
One of the sources also called the software “small, incremental corporate fascism,” and remarked that “some assistant is going to hit the ‘woke’ button, and you’re gonna be dinged for your lack of wokeness.”
Another salient point made by both sources is that most actors want to be cast in certain roles based on their merit as actors, not based on skin color.
“The black actors that I know do not want more roles for black actors,” one the of the producers said. “They want to be considered for roles that everyone else is auditioning for. It’s patronizing to treat people as though they are the sum total of their attributes. They want to play the role of a lawyer because they can portray a good lawyer.”
The company released an ad for the new feature, and it’s exactly what one might expect from the progressive posse in Hollywood.
“Everyone in our industry needs a way to measure how diverse and inclusive our stories are,” the ad begins. “Women, people of color, the LGBTQIA community, and other marginalized groups are not equally represented on screen. Final Draft has created a tool that allows you to quickly assign and measure a script’s character’s traits. Gender, ethnicity, or any other trait you want to measure be expressed in this clear, visual chart.”
The ad boasts that writers and production teams can answer questions like “how much dialogue is spoken by women in lead roles?” or “how many scenes in the script feature two or more leading roles for women?”
“Like everything else in the world of software, you reach a saturation point. when you write a screenplay you really only need seven or eight things. one of those things is the inclusivity. it’s more marketing than anything else. it’s one thing to have a feature that allows you to sign and identify
“Final Draft is committed to helping shape a future for our industry that includes and reflects all of us,” the ad finishes.

HMM: Actress Rosario Dawson Comes Out as Lesbian Just One Month After She ‘Dated’ Cory Booker
Was she his beard?
Actress Rosario Dawson has officially come out as lesbian, just a month after “dating” Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) during his dismal presidential campaign.
“People kept saying that I [came out]… I didn’t do that,” she said during a recent interview with Bustle. “I mean, it’s not inaccurate, but I never did come out come out. I mean, I guess I am now.”
Dawson claims she has only been in relationships with men up until this point, so she didn’t feel comfortable coming out of the closet officially until now.
“I’ve never had a relationship in that space, so it’s never felt like an authentic calling to me,” she said.
She said that her time with Booker forced her to be introspective and discover the truth about her sexuality, which made her comfortable about coming out as a lesbian.
“It’s the first time I felt like I had to be responsible about my choice of love, which is a challenging thing to do,” Dawson said. “If you fall in love, you fall in love. But there’s another aspect I had to consider: what this meant in [putting] a microscope on my family and particularly on my daughter.”
Just last month, Dawson was still keeping up the facade with Booker after he announced that he suspended his presidential campaign.
“Cory, you continue to inspire me everyday,” Dawson tweeted at Booker after he announced his campaign was finished. “On this journey you and your remarkable team have represented the best in us and I know you will continue to. Thank you. I see you. I love you.”
Dawson and Booker began their relationship in early 2019 conveniently before presidential primary season was scheduled to begin, which fueled rumors that Dawson was Booker’s “beard,” a slang term for a woman who poses as a phony girlfriend or wife for a closeted homosexual. She kept awkwardly professing her love for Booker as “beard” rumors were persisting wildly over the internet and social media.
“I’m in love! I am absolutely in love, and it is so exciting,” Dawson said of Booker last year.
“Look, both of us, you know, we’ve had relationships,” Booker said of his lesbian Hollywood girlfriend, “but I’m not sure if I’ve ever fully given myself over to a relationship as much as I have with her and allowed myself to be as vulnerable.”
“I mean, gosh, that night we talked for hours and hours,” he added. “I had trouble asking for her phone number… I think I said something really stupid like, ‘Uh, how would I get in touch with you?’ And she mercifully said something like, ‘Oh, you want my phone number?’ And my insides were like, ‘Hell, yeah!'”
Twitter users were not convinced by the show that the supposed lovers were putting on.
How much money are they paying Rosario Dawson to be Corey Booker's beard? Any guesses?

Rosario Dawson is pretty much a professional beard. Enough said.
And this is not a putdown of Cory Booker, as I'm a gay man myself. I want him to come out. He shouldn't have to hide.

Rosario Dawson is taking one for the team. Pretending to be Cory Booker's girlfriend. In old Hollywood these women were called Beards.

Rosario Dawson and Cory Booker are one of the least convincing I’ve ever seen. I don’t get it, he could’ve at chosen a beard he has chemistry with
— Alex (@XandryNicole) October 10, 2019
Idk, getting Rosario Dawson to be his beard is pretty impressive..
— 9Circles (@9Circles9) October 16, 2019
Rosario Dawson with Cory Booker is a publicity thing nothing more. Dare I say she's his beard. When the election is over they'll mysteriously "part ways"

The fact that Dawson has come out as a lesbian, and presumably ended her reported relationship with Booker, shortly after the end of his presidential campaign will only add additional fuel to the rumors that have plagued Booker for decades.
