Lgbt representation in Crash Bandicoot
#1
Hello what do you think of LGBT Representation in future Crash bandicoot games and what would be the best to have it executed right ? 

Crash bandicoot is very popular in countries where homophobia and transphobia are pretty acceptable over there. Thus bringing hateful behavior not knowing that it's unacceptable. I think LGBT representation for crash would help give LGBT people are voice in those parts of the world and reduce LGBT - phobia online

None

As if NST, NF and IaT aren't already ruining the franchise with all the inconsiderate garbage and absolute false info they're full of

So isn't turning any of pre-existent Crash-characters into faggots and exiling/scarying fans away from the franchise in process.

PS. I personally have nothing against transgenders in general.

Your language is not cool. Cut it out.

No. Please no.
Keep your goddamn politics outta my fun time. Not everything needs to be about sexuality.
I'm cool with the occasional adult joke and all, and even some spicy character design. But let the video games about cartoon animals just be video games about cartoon animals. Not a vessel for somebody's political agenda.

I don't care what's in your pants or who you consensually share it with, but it doesn't belong in Crash Bandicoot.

Advocating for LGBTQ+ rights around the world and making a fun platformer game are not mutually exclusive.

So go do it. It doesn't need to be forced upon an existing series.

To be clear: my concern is not about having LGBTQ+ representation, but that when writers go into writing a character specifically to represent a specific race, sex, or sexuality, the representation typically is shallow, one-note, bland, and the work as a whole suffers for it. Not to mention the fact that this type of writing tends to enforce stereotypes rather than break them down.

No, if you want true representation it has to come naturally and subtly, and anything sexual needs to take a backseat to the actual character(s) being written. That way the audience can actually come to know and accept the character for who they are, and not just the labels placed on them.
