Well, in the case of Firefly, the show was already pushing it’s luck by having two prominent minority cast members (who actually had something to do other than being a minority) anyway. They also didn’t play the card of having a minority that was atypical of what mainstream audiences think of when they picture that minority ; . Keanu is “part- Asian”, so he can be a Meiji era samurai. It also had strong female characters, and more than one. Yeah, lack of any strong Asian presence, especially given the premise is noticeable, but one show can’t solve all ills, which we tend to want movies, books and art to do. It’s a problem all creative people deal with in a society like ours where there is such a startling omission in the representation of certain cultures in media. If the show were bad, basically no one would care, but if it’s halfway decent it will get slammed for not being progressive enough.

Growing up with a disability is hard enough when you want to be like everyone else. Embracing who you are is extremely vital in a disabled persons life and Hershey was a huge supporter of this and in the blog post Clare thanks Hershey for supporting that belief. Being disabled doesn’t mean you have less rights, everyone has equal rights and should be treated with respect and dignity. Being disabled can be very hard for some people and then fighting to be treated like you’re normal can be as hard. Thanks to Clare and Hershey they are spreading full awareness such that one should always be embracing who they are

We typically walk with a swagger and a glint in the eye that is born of exceptional confidence. This is a byproduct of years of training to perform at the highest levels possible in the tasks we are given and in the leadership training that is taught from the very lowest levels to the highest levels of organizational leadership. There is also, among a few, the confidence that one has every day after f acing death and coming out alive . The enthusiasm that comes from seeing every day as a gift that was very nearly taken from you and a desire to make every day count.

For many other reasons, I do think nutrition, health, exercise and “holistic” practices are beneficial. Again, I don’t have clinical data, but I can say that personally they have improved my life considerably. So it’s hard to imagine that treatment regimens that include those elements can be automatically presumed fatal. But I also respect the obligations of the medical profession and do not even purport to understand what that would entail. Perhaps if KB did not bill herself as a psych MD, and rebranded herself as a practitioner of nutrition, that may reduce the hostility over how she may not be meeting certain expected standards.
