another thing I didn’t like about the harry potter movies: in the photos, they made harry’s parents look so old, in their mid-30s or even early 40s, when in the books they were 21 goddamn years old when they died

they were kids, they had just gotten married, they were in their college years, they were so young and the movies didn’t show that and I think that’s sad.

For as long as I can remember, I just wanted to do what was right. I guess I’m not quite sure what that is any more. And I thought I could throw myself back in and follow orders. Serve. It’s just not the same.

The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.

 I highly recommend reading the entire article. 
from the infographic:
Among the top 100 domestic grossing films:
only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
0% of protagonists are women of color
0% of protagonists are LGBTQ
1% of protagonists are people with a disability

I don’t know if you’d call it ‘sad’.  Most films lose money so companies that produce films determine who their audience is and cast their films so as to attract the widest possible audience.  T’would be nice if they didn’t care about money and so could cast anyone of any race, color, creed, or gender, but the real world won’t let them do that and hope to turn a profit at the same time.

Added to my usual note that economics do not equal ethics, how in any way is it appealing to the “widest possible audience” to feature so prominently only straight white able-bodied men? Everyone else - the majority of any given population - can imagine themselves into these pale dudely hetero protags, but those dudes in the audience can’t imagine themselves into anyone else? In genres NOTED for the audience’s ability to suspend disbelief and accept the astonishing?
I don’t accept it. I do not believe that straight, white, able-bodied, neurotypical men are that limited.
But misandrist sci-fi and fantasy producers apparently do.
Right now, the straight white men who watch science fiction and fantasy are being talked down to and babied because the producers think they really are that incapable. What a terrible thing to do to that section of your audience! Why, if you kept up that insulting charade long enough, those poor gentlemen might be permanently damaged by a lack of empathy and be completely devoid of a sense of the interiority of others and start to think that they’re the only people who count as people.
Imagine that.
