You’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel for critiques. I don’t have the time to go into everything you’re doing awfully, I’ll just suggest you come up with some positive representation rather than pointing to problematic views.
For example, positive LGBT characters: can’t be defined by their sexuality, can’t be a quick quip, can’t alienate them, can’t be sexualized, can’t be celibate… Unachievable for anything less than a main character.
Lol, I know. It must be so difficult to think that LGBT characters can be, I don’t know, characters. Why should they be full-fledged people instead of comic relief?
For the record, I DO like Jack’s characterisation. He was a flirt, but he flirted with everyone and he was mostly positive as an LGBT character (I’ve seen critiques about him, but I can’t recall them at the moment). He had a backstory, a rounded characterisation, and wasn’t defined solely by his sexuality. You want another example? Steve Jinks from Warehouse 13. He’s gay, but he mentions it when he’s being faced with heteronormative behaviour or when he really trusts someone. It’s something that’s mentioned several times, but he has yet to have a romantic plotline. It’s not used for jokes and he has a personality AND a character outside of his sexuality. Granted, both of these examples are white dudes, but I’m sure there’s some more out there. I saw a gifset going around with a WoC from White Collar who apparently was a positively portrayed lesbian character.
It’s NOT hard to make a character part of the LGBT without marginalising or making them into jokes. The problem with Moffat is that he thinks gay people are ‘quirky’ and ‘all in good fun’. He had a chance to do good with River, but her entire character was focused on the Doctor and solely the Doctor that she was never expanded on. Going ‘well, she’s bisexual’ AFTER the fact is not positive representation, especially if pretty much no one knows it. Again, in Warehouse 13, H.G. Wells made it clear she was bisexual by mentioning ‘many of her lovers were men’ and the fact that she has a near-canon relationship with Myka Bering (the writers, actors, etc all say that they’re in love, but it’s not 100% in the show yet). She wasn’t saying it to be mean to someone either, just as a fact.
Maybe next time, you SHOULD take the time to come up with examples of things we do poorly, because it looks like you’re the one taking scraps.
