Casting Call for Transgender Character to Join “Supergirl” in Season 4

ComicBook.com has learned that The CW’s “Supergirl” is looking to cast an actor to play a transgender character for Season 4 of the TV series.

Reportedly the casting notice is for a character named “Nia Nal”, who is described as a transgender woman in her early 20s of open ethnicity. Nia is described as a “young Cat Grant type” who is “a confident, wunderkind of a fashionista. Once a political speechwriter, Nia is the newest addition to the CatCo investigative reporting team. With her she brings sparlking wit and biting humor but under that banter-y, chic facade, lays a soulful young woman who has much to offer the world.”

With Kara having stepped away from her role at CatCo Media in Season 3, it appears as though she may return to journalism in the fourth season of the series, or at least CatCo Media will have a bigger role in the story next season.

Hate jumped the shark from the start.

Transgender folks are just as much a part of Earth as anyone else and it’s not inconceivable that a transgender person would work for CatCo or The Daily Planet.

It isn’t hateful to point out a clear agenda with this show. It’s obvious stunt casting. For quite some time, the series has been used as a social platform. This isn’t even about agreeing or disagreeing with the message. It’s just getting wearing to watch a show that’s supposed to be fun used for social justice purposes week after week. What’s worse, any negative critique of this poorly written show is met with “hate labeling” even when there isn’t any hate.

I stopped watching this show in its 2nd season. But from what I’ve been reading lately, its headed the same way as GLEE did. It seems its more about agenda than the characters.

And to be clear… This is not hate speech, its an observation!
