One of the things which ruin fandoms today is the constant whining from kids and teenagers about the 'lack of representation' in films and TV shows, among other things. A woman not being the main character for instance, does not stop me from enjoying a film or show. If the film or TV show is good, it doesn't need fake representation to make it a success. What I do not like is when a writer feels that they must include a 'token' insert whatever minority here and end up writing a flat stereotype for the sake of inclusion in a story which in the end, is far more insulting to 'minorities' than not having them there at all. If you're going to write a 'minority' character, either for books, or film, then you've got to make the character the main one. Sidelining them reinforces the stereotypes as well. Stop complaining. Let people enjoy their fandom.
