I honestly don't get this "see themselves in media" thing. Unless they have a fucking identical twin who's an actor, or they're an actor themselves, then NO, they literally do not get to see themselves in media. A person of the same skin color/race/sexuality is NOT "seeing yourself in media".
It's from interviews with old gays and blacks who grew up during the 50s-70s being amazed when for the first time ever someone of their category doing something non-stereotypical was shown on mainstream television/movies (or a non-evil gay character was portrayed at all). Astroturfing half the cast with token minorities won't recapture this effect, because the affirmation of "I'm not some isolated lunatic" only happens the first time but SJWs think that people are goldfish or don't understand diminishing returns.

50's to 70's is too generous. Black people have been doing non-stereotypical roles since at least the 60's in Hollywood. That was Sidney Poitier's whole schtick. Women have been doing it since black and white films, possibly since silent films. There was never a time in the modern era when the arts were as steeped in conservative conformity as SJW's pretend they used to be. Even during eras like the red scare and the comic's code, creators pushed the restrictions to the limit and there was always a big underground scene. Filmmakers used to be pushing the envelope of the culture, until the culture became overwhelmingly liberal and then all the lefties in the industry immediately started trying to stamp out any real counter culture that wasn't Marxist. They've been a lot more effective at doing what they accuse conservatives of than the old-timey conservatives were.

The good news is that what they're doing is almost certainly unsustainable and even now a new underground is developing. The arts will always be full of counter-culture types who hate being restricted by the powers that be, and since the powers that be in entertainment are currently leftist, a lot of younger artists are going to be pushed further to the right than they have in previous eras.

Again, Dobson. You TRACED the image. You didn’t draw them, you TRACED.

And yes, this is actually a new post.
