It's easier to shout racist or sexist at something with no evidence. So hopefully I find at least some with well reasoned opinion.
My view is this. I have 0 problems with minority's (including homosexuals) portrayed in media. I have 0 problems with them in general. I care for all races and sexuality. I don't support any violence or hate toward them. Keep that in mind those who want to scream racist.
The thing I want to discuss is wether media has been forcing in minoritys or gays or lesbians into media. Trying to be more "inclusive" and sometimes. To me at least sometimes doing more harm than good to the idea of equal representation.
It's like this. If there's a movie about normal people and society etc. I expect there will be whites. Blacks. Gays. Lesbians. Asian etc. Since we very mixed. But now say there's a movie set in medieval Europe. And there's equal amount of blacks and Asians and gays in a town. This bothers me. Of course those races still existed and sure there is a chance there might of been a small few in that town. But there becomes a point realism gets put to the side for inclusiveness. And this is a problem for me.
If movie set in African video. I expect to see little to not white people. Unless they part of story.. If movie set in China. I expect to see little to no black people unless part of story or tourist or something. If set in 70s or 60s in some towns or countries. I don't expect to see gays or lesbians walking around casually and being open about their sexuality. I guess my main point is. Im all for different races and types of people to be in film. But don't forgo realism (if meant to be realistic) just to be inclusive.
A recent example of where this is an issue is in game Kingdom Come Deliverance... Look it up. The complaints for inclusion completely ruin the purpose of game.
What are your opinions?

Anyone acting like diversity is inherently a political statement or "sjw bullshit" are so fucking stupid like… thats just how the world is. its almost like the real world is diverse and that its unnatural for media to not reflect this… like these people literally get mad about female protagonists, gay protagonists or protagonists of color bc its “political correctness gone too far” like I don't know how to explain to you that poc, lgbt people and women existing isn't political correctness its just life dude
