Captain America’s had quite the week! On our latest episode of Secrets of the Sire we welcomed Social Media expert Brian Bish to discuss the impact hashtag campaigns like #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend and #GiveElsaAGirlfriend are having on our movies.
Check out an excerpt from the podcast:
“Which brings us to the latest movement on full display for all the world to download. The #GiveElsaAGirlfriend. And the newest which only just materialized over the past 48 hours: #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend. And an article I posted on the Secrets of the Sire Facebook page: The Gay Star Wars relationship fans have been chatting up between Finn and Poe. You can go to facebook.com/secretsofthesire or SecretsoftheSire.com and click on the latest blog post to read it.
Bottom line? It’s a trend. Not the cause itself. The cause has something very important at its core – inclusion, acceptance, role models – and we’re going to welcome a terrific guest in the next segment who can personally speak to that fact. But thanks to social media its just more static thrown into cyberspace. It’s just more noise. It’s more political views being thrown at people who don’t have time to properly process it.”
