Okay guys, this will be my last post to this thread, until the actual show is out. I´ll stay at the point that can be ways to exaggerate inclusion in the show, but I also don‘t want to put it to 0 (and never wanted it.) The message of a book or book series can be changed if there is changed too much for whatever reason. LGBTQ is the example in this thread, but this is actually the case for other changes, too. I just don‘t like movie or show adaptations that much which have not that much to do with the actual books, anymore. Probably we should just wait, until the show is out to get better arguments and see who is right. I see that this is a very emotional topic, for you, but also for me. A few semesters ago I‘ve been in a course for Gender Studies, actually to end some prejudices that I could have, unnoticing… It created more than it ended. In these few days in this thread I probably understood some things better than in this whole semester. Most of the time it was all about feminism and sometimes a bit racism but they don‘t differentiate LGBTQ from feminism, here anyway. In this course people were also quite proud on being politically radical. Although there are also some nice LGBTQ-people in Germany, at least the representatives from them and feminists, here and for example in Great Britain can be harsh and insulting, too, demanding their rights and what they think would be their rights. Very few people criticize them, except of right-wing extremists, which I am definitely not. This frustrates me. Because of these reasons I have to admit that I was a bit annoyed when I saw that there is a whole thread about how you can bring more LGBTQ in WoT which is one of my favorite book series. Although I really tried not to do it this may have resulted in also me crossing a few lines. I apologize for that.
