(1) I hate what non-black people have done to "woke," but I've just got to let that go. (2) Supergirl has a character who is a trans woman because being a trans woman or having a trans person in your life is normal life to folks.
"You're just doing this for brownie points." No, I'm doing this because this is my life, you monstrous idiot! I am including the people I care for that I interact with on a regular basis. THIS IS MY NORMAL!
And that is where this infuriating disconnect seems to pop up and the accusations of "forced diversity" (which is not even a real thing) pop up. People are just creating their normal.
"Why can't people just happen to be ______? Why can't diversity happen naturally?" Because it is fiction and NOTHING happens naturally because it is all made up. Every aspect of a fictional character is A CHOICE. There is no default.
You don't have to explain your presence or the creation of reflections of those you care for to anyone.
