Actress Hayley Atwell is filming "Agent Carter," a show based on her character from the "Captain America" movies.

She recently posted a picture from the set of their "badass female Camera Operator":

Isn't it great when women support other women in their industries?

But one person was not thrilled by her phrasing.


And, you know, fair point. He's not the only one who feels that way.

Her response, however, is one Agent Carter would be proud of.

In case you haven't heard, it's 2014 and women are still making only 78 cents for every dollar men make doing the same job.

And those stats only get worse for women of color.

The best part of this conversation though?

THEY BOTH MAKE GREAT POINTS.

We shouldn't have to call out a person's gender when they're doing a job that a person of any gender can do and do well...

...but at the same time, until women are just as likely to get a job in a (currently) predominantly male industry AND get paid equally for that job, it's important to show people that women can and do hold those jobs.

In summary:

For the first time in its 56-year history, Sports Illustrated will feature a transgender model on its glossy cover. 23-year-old Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio will appear in the July issue, which hits stands early next week. Sampaio wrote on Instagram that she was "excited and honored" to be part of such an iconic issue, adding: "The team at SI has created yet another groundbreaking issue by bringing together a diverse set of multitalented, beautiful women in a creative and dignified way."

A native of Fortaleza, a city in northeastern Brazil, Sampaio has been making history in the fashion world in recent years. She was already the first trans model to make the 2017 cover of Vogue Paris. Scouted while she was a young teen, she quickly made her way onto key runways in her home country. She managed to make an impression in a short time— launching her career at 18 years old—as L'Oréal Paris's first trans model. She hit another milestone last year, when she was the face of Victoria's Secret campaign, breaking barriers as the first trans woman working with the brand.
