Supergirl TV series' casting for transgender performer is a political activist in real life

Warner Todd Huston reported on Breitbart that the performer chosen to play a specific role on the ultra-leftist Supergirl TV show is a transgender activist from the northeast:
The CW network’s Supergirl has announced the casting of transgender rights activist Nicole Maines to play a super-powered hero in the series upcoming fourth season.

Reports of the search for an actor to portray a transgender character broke in May, but now word has emerged that Maines has been cast as Nia Nal, a hero named “The Dreamer.” Nal will have the power to sense the future, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The casting is notable for the fact that Maines recently made news of another sort after suing to force the state of Maine to allow transgenders the use of any public bathroom they wish to use at any given time.

The activist’s case went all the way to the Maine Supreme Court in 2013 when the court ruled that transgenders can use the bathroom of their choice. Maines was also the subject of the book Becoming Nicole and appeared in the HBO documentary The Trans List. Maines’s previous acting credit was on the USA network series Royal Pains.
If that's their choice of actor, it's clear they're not very interested in women's rights to privacy and safety, which makes this atrocious show all the more unworthy of the source material it's based upon. A most truly awful disfavor was done to Otto Binder and Al Plastino, Kara Zor-El's original co-creators, by producers who totally disrespect the comics.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
