Kinda makes me think of a cringy character in a roleplay I heard about. It was set in the present, this was a while ago so it was probably 2016. This character was a late teenager and he was gay and living in California. His parents were (of course) abusive as shit and smacked him around a lot and didn't accept his sexuality. So he ran off, but everywhere he went no one would accept him because he was gay (in 2016 California), so that's how he wound up in the RP's setting.LGBT media as a concept is quickly becoming irrelevant due to the increasing acceptance of LGBT people in modern society. I am no longer impressed by media that relies primarily upon sexuality or gender as the main fulcrum of the conflict or characterization.
John Waters was right in that we need to see more "gay villains" as he put it. No more perfect untouchable author self inserts who are 2queer4u.
The unanimous response to the character was "Okay, if this was set in 1916, maybe I could buy it. If he was from a really conservative country or part of the country, maybe I could buy it. If it was just his parents who rejected him, maybe I could buy it. But come on! It's Current Year (TM) in California!"
But the creator, who was probably either a gay guy himself creating a Gary Stu self-insert who was actually really privileged and accepted but was "I'm gay so I'm so oppressed you guys", or a straight white teenage SJW girl who was like "omigod gay people are like so oppressed I need to make all these cis scum check their privilege", wouldn't take any criticism and called out anyone who didn't instantly befriend this character and say in every post something to the tune of ", you're so brave for being openly gay" in every post as being homophobic. Apparently (I wasn't there, I just heard about this secondhand) the entire roleplay group kinda fell apart because so many people left because they couldn't stand this character and they couldn't say or do anything about it lest they be called a homophobe.
Let's hope the next generation of LGBT folks are less defensive about themselves. We need more LGBT creators like John Waters. He's a gay guy with a sense of humor about the subject.
