What do you folks think? Is it time for the latest TMNT show to embrace the growing LGBTQ community? A gay Raphael, lesbian April, maybe a Splinter transitioning to female? Maybe a twist could be that Oroku Saki is actually a post-op... Karai?
And people think I'm a troll.

April will likely explore her gender, but not her sexuality, even though it's a healthy and important part of life. I'm sure it would raise a few eyebrows if Nick went that route.

Here's a page from Batgirl. Do you think we should get this kind of stuff with TMNT?

It's like there can be only one on the forums.
At least Andrew is fun. Which I can't say about you.

Also, part about exploring gender and not sexuality is such bull-dang.
It's vice-versa. Not in the current days of post-truth and insanity, but in general.

This is a toon for a younger audience, I don't know what people think they are getting beyond possible subtleties.

No, of course not. Characters who only exist to "represent" something rather than have an impact on the story, are nothing but a pointless distraction. Unless the stuff they "represent" is either part of the story, informs their actions or is a neutral aspect that is barely touched on upon (if at all), it's just going to come across as forced. By all means, have characters who belongs to one of these groups, just make sure it's an actual character and not some virtue signaling distraction.

Just for comparison imagine for a moment that you're watching a movie that's about anything other than, let's say, mining. Now somewhere in the middle of this movie, a miner shows up and starts talking about how dangerous it is to be a miner for five minutes. That would be pointless.

Now let's say the movie is about about mining and the hardships of mining is indeed shown to us rather than told to us, wouldn't that make more sense? Or if the movie still isn't about mining, if this character lost his leg in a mining accident and that drives his actions. Or if you really can't think of a reason for hiim to be a miner, just have him have a background in mining and never make a big deal about it, just have it be known what he does for a living.

Transwoman, biologically male. The weird thing about this page is that she went to a fertility clinic and is mad the doctor misgendered her, which I guess meant he told her biological males can't get pregnant, which is true and something she should know beforehand. This page depicts a pretty forced reason for her to be sad.

If you actually read the page, she said "we" as in her and her partner.

I understood it as the doctor called she a he and didn’t apologize for the mistake. Also she has a female partner that accompanied her to the doctor to see about options for having a baby. The female partner to get pregnant that is. How far off am I?

I wouldn't mind, but it should not be shoehorned in simply for the sake of representation.

It should feel like a part of the story as the series progresses. Like for example one of the turtles slowly realizing he has feelings for Casey instead of April or something. Or vice versa.

If Andrew is trying to give us a sneak preview about what to anticipate in his next book, I think I'll pass.

Well that would probably get the fans off crapping on the RotTMNT designs.

Living under or above a laundromat bar could work. Maybe.

I gotta say, a laundromat where I could get a drink while my clothes are in the washer or dryer would be so convenient

Well there's an interesting twist. lol

Then the next series after that has Tang Shen cheated on within that triangle and gets revenge on the guys... a little too hard. Flees to NYC and becomes the Turtles' sensei/mom.

That would be super annoying. A million washers and dryers running, competing with presumably loud music to drown it out? Count me out.
