Putting this in the characters subforum, since this usually applies to characters, but if you think it belongs somewhere else, please move it. So, the current decade has had a great influx of LGBT characters in films and cartoons, even ones aimed at kids, like ParaNorman. The thing is, sometimes people put in LGBT themes in their works for no reason other to be gimmicky or to pander to social justice warriors, and it ends up being just another form of tokenism. A good example, in my opinion, is the one that helped start it all: Korra and Asami getting together in the Legend of Korra finale. Keep in mind that I've only watched the first couple seasons of Korra, but I've heard a lot about this. Who doesn't? Anyways, in the first two seasons, I do not remember Korra being attracted to other girls. Only to guys. So it feels kinda last minute, as if the creators just wanted to throw in a lesbian couple for no reason other than to be progressive. So, what is, in your opinion, a good way to put in LGBT themes in your work (especially if they're not the main focus) without it feeling forced or gimmicky? In my opinion, a good way to do it is to not draw too much attention and to treat it as a natural, normal thing.
