GamingThread Why is there so much blowback from people when asking for more gender & ethnic diversity in games?
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissing Concerns of Representation and Inclusivity Over Multiple Posts
Some harmless advice: try to be less aggressive and condescending. I know the subject matter can feel more personal to you, but your response does more harm to your cause than good. Imo people from diverse backgrounds is not also a way change happens as you mention, it is way. Spike Lee's movies did more for the black community than 100.000 angry rants from people like you about diversity and representation. The key - and the difficulty - is to have more Spike Lee's in cinema, games, [enter your favourite art], and giving them a voice. Their work will do the rest. The She-Ra Netflix TV series is another perfect example of how this works. Did a vocal community play a part in its creation? Probably, and this is good! But don't go to Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman and demand that they turn one of the ninja turtles gay, so the community can feel happy about it. Fuck that shit, that's harassment. And yes, you should not interfere with a creator's voice just for diversity's sake. It's like going to Martin Scorcese and demanding that his next movie has a black star for a lead because he has been using white actors for too long a time. Shit sounds ridiculous even by reading it loud.
