Angry girl who posted this needs to watch: Doctor Who, Torchwood, Being Human, and needs to read Tales From Earthsea, Magic’s Pawn,Saint Germain etc. There are plenty of women, gender queer, homosexuals, and non-white people represented as heroes if you look for it. Sure there could be more, and if you wish to balance the scales, WRITE A BOOK! :D
I’m getting so tired of historical/fantasy/sci-fi pieces that are basically (cis/straight/white) dude-centric without nod to anyone else and getting the justification back, “But it’s historically accurate that the women don’t do anything/that queer people are erased” or “in this society men still dominate for some strange and miraculous reason!!
