Myopia, or nearsightedness, has exploded in the West over the past 40 years. In Asia, the condition has reached truly epidemic proportions – within the span of a single generation, it’s gone from affecting a small percentage of the population to, in certain demographics, affecting damn near all of the population. … Why all the sudden squintiness? Well, to trace myopia back to its earliest roots, it seems the condition sprung from our human need to escape the slavering iniquities awaiting us in that place that must now only be mentioned in a hushed whisper (“outdoors”). You see, much like Superman, your eyeballs derive their superpower from sunlight (“superpower” in this case meaning “ability to focus on anything beyond arm’s length”). Studies have shown that spending too much of your youth indoors under weak, artificial lighting is all but guaranteed to doom you to a lifetime of haggling with LensCrafters cashiers.
It's interesting that if Creed, Black Panther, Fantastic Four or Suicide Squad are not successful it will used as an excuse on why not to include diversity in movies while Johnny Depp have been in critical and or financial failures but is still given opportunities. That same myopia must explain why most of the women making strides and getting lead roles in Hollywood are white and why a straight cisgender white man is likelier to get cast to play a queer person than an actual queer person.
