They just want to see a good movie.

Plus if try to get job directing a movie, now they can tell that I am a white male, but I would be very surprised if they would ask if me if I was cisgender or not cause you're not allowed to ask that question, and even if they could get away with asking it, I don't think they are going to want any one going around saying that they asked that question when hiring people.

So is it really that big of a thing to worry about as my professor was making it out to be, do you think?
And I had a professor call a sitting president at the time, Barack Obama, a terrorist, that he should be impeached. She also made other comments which were rather nasty.

Just because a professor says it doesn’t make it true.

Think about how many various checkbox agendas there are out there these days in hiring. I can promise you a straight white masculine male is at the very bottom. And for the most part, straight white males have let the crazy SJW agendas just run wild with little to no pushback.
Especially in NY and CA

Funny how the insanity is centralized eh?

A rare, honest, prof! GOOD FOR HIM!




After seeing 150k people wanting to see Trump, 30k waiting as much as 45 hours in the rain and heat.


I have never seen anything like this.

Okay thanks, I did a search but those directors are already established from before, and are over 40. Where as someone like is just starting out in a new era, compared to when they did, if that makes a huge difference.
