This isn't enough. I can understand the underlying message "oppressed folks can also be oppressors"-- that certainly needs to be discussed-- and I appreciate acknowledging Yahima's treatment was not well done. Yet this is neither an apology nor a promise to do better.

When Yahima appeared, I was excited to see someone that is barely, if ever, portrayed in popular media finally have a voice. Then, within moments of being introduced first their voice and then their life were forcibly taken. They were disposed of to bolster one man's story.

This was not utilized to highlight violence against indigenous, intersex, and/or trans folk; it was used as a plot device. Yahima was portrayed as disposable. The traumas they experienced were merely hinted at and ultimately diminished next to Montrose's demons.

I'm glad that Misha realizes there was a problem here, and I hope that this realization is shared by all the other writers and decision makers on this show. But I need you to do more than acknowledge it. How are you going to fix it on a future season?
