I might regret writing this post later, but something needs to be done about it.
But i tried message the episode management before about this issue and they didn’t care much… so here goes nothing.
I’m so proud of this app, I really am.
I’ve been here since the beginning and it changed so much for the better
And i think it’s lovely. I absolutely adore it. i adore this community so much…
I’m talking about the huge diversity of course. now most of the stories as much as i read - and i read a lot usually has diversity characters in it.
But i can’t relate to it.
My name is Shiran, i am a second generation to holocaust survivors.
and a proud jewish.
and i get no representation at all in the Episode app.
I really do love this app, but it’s hurt. it’s like nobody cares about you - your religion doesn’t exist.
I can’t recall seeing a jewish character (the only jewish character i saw was in my own story lol) and i’m sure there are some more but it’s really really rare.
We’re not asking for much. not a special “shelf” or whatever, you don’t have to put us in every story but it would be nice to see a jewish character from time to time.
The jewish community in episode might be small but we are willing for a change.
We support diversity. We hope others who don’t get any kind of representation fight for it as well. we all deserve to be recognized.
I love you all, you guys are amazing and I hope we make a change.
Love and peace to everyone
