I honestly don't understand the policy being exercised on the new film forums. On the one hand, yes, I understand how representation is an important topic and can merit it's own separate discussion. But on the other, I don't see why the warning pops up in character specific threads, when those issues of representation are intrinsic to the discussion. I've been a member of these forums for over 10 years. In that time, I've seen many people celebrate Princess Leia as a feminist icon for her courage in her own rescue, and for killing Jabba the Hutt. Never once did I hear it remarked that such commentary was somehow not about the character of Leia or was distracting from discussion of her. Even with Rey, I've seen concerns about a possible Kylo Ren romance and its implications (positive and negative) for female fans pass without remark. But why do reactions about how Finn's portrayal make posters of color feel get chided as off topic or redirected to diversity threads? How is that actor's race less a part of his character and audience reception than is Carrie Fisher or Daisy Ridley's sex? I honestly don't understand where the line is being drawn on what to discuss where and why.
