No you aren't. As long as it doesn't detriment the flow of the medium itself I don't really give a shit about leftist bullshit. I can't really give you an example that's /co/ related where that happened but there's plenty in vidya.
Seems like characters are developed firstly by 'ok we need a homosexual/transgeder/minority representative in the game' and then and only AFTER then they actually come up with ideas for their personality.
What happens is that the character's qualities get overshadowed by the need to pander to modern audiences and thus they pronounce their sexuality to the point where they have nothing else going for them BUT their sexuality AND/OR every other aspect of their pesronality are extremely dwarfed in comparison.
Honestly the show handled it well so far. As far as I'm concerned I could've gone with absolutely no romance plots, like say early 2000 cartoons; but I guess since this is somewhat of a coming-of-age story, Star needs to go through some form of catharsis and growth so...
