I find it interesting that this crowd is apparently now in the business of enforcing stereotypes.  Iron Fist is under fire for having a martial artist who isn't Asian.  And now there's a big flap about, believe it or not, the fact that a character in a video game with a butch haircut isn't a lesbian.

I wish grown adults would stop talking about being "shamed".

It's become ridiculous. During a recent online discussion about a man being hit by a car at an intersection, some people started freaking out and accusing us of "blaming the victim" when the point was brought up about looking both ways before stepping into a roadway. Whatever happened to personal responsibility for your safety? It's so stupid that it's almost beyond belief that people think that way.
