I don't think you can win when it comes to SWJs and 'diversity' in films, books, franchises, etc. On one hand, they complain when cultures, races, LGBTQ and disabilities aren't included or featured, because they don't reflect 'diversity' but when they do, writers and directors are criticised for cultural appropriation, etc.

I can understand complaints when it's done in a way that is disrespectful or harmful, but how do you really define that, since people have different perspectives on it.

So basically in the end, writers and directors can only rehash the same old 'white male /possibly/ Christian' stereotypes in their work if they want to avoid criticism.

In the end, I'm more bothered about how much I enjoy something and how well something is made/written than all the political correctness rubbish. In the end, I think that's the only thing that really matters - that, and writers doing work that they love.
