No one should ever be over that hug. Ever.
there is no such thing as ~forced diversity~ because no matter how “”natural”” you introduce a character who just happens to NOT be white or straight or cis or able-bodied, people are still gonna demand a reason for it, as that’s where their suspension of disbelief ends. never mind that they don’t bat an eyelid that 90% of our media is cis straight white able-bodied characters nor question why it MUST be so.
or you know what, please shove diversity down my throat. work until it’s filled in media so much that the consumers feel like they’re DROWNING in it. we have a LOT to make up for.
