Seriously, though, seeing Liam O’Brien and Mark Hamill and the McElroys all maintaining that “you, our audience, are an essential part of our art, your interpretations matter, if you see yourself in this character and want to make them yours’ in some way, that is totally valid” has just been so healing to me. 

It’s been such a nice change of pace from other male creators who will “well, actually” you if they think they’ve given you the slightest hint that their character might be queer or neurodivergent, or who fuss and wring their hands about ways to “””naturally””” make a character those things.

And it just gives us more evidence that those other creators can and should do better by us.
