Media bias on the right still suggests the only people who count are old white men as AOC pointed out.
My problem with Hollywood isn't that they want a female Doctor Who or female Ghostbusters or a female Captain Marvel - my problem is with bad writing! Plenty of crappy movies with a white male hero and a bad guy who was black or brown. If you write it well it doesn't matter!
Killing Eve is a series with an Asian Brit chasing a soulless evil female serial killing hitwoman. No problem here with a female cast with a female minority lead and why? Because it was written the same way if they were male characters - their race or sex had nothing to do with the story - not really.
Why Doctor Who sucks is not because they cast a female Doctor but because they hired non-sci-fi writers and they didn't do the character justice. The Doctor was always largely a sexless character - it was established in the 1970s that he could be a she. It's just bad writing - and yes some dumbass male bashing.
But I am also tired of reading about a bunch of snowflake white men constantly WHINING about feminism. All these dumbass Proud Boys who couldn't land an intelligent sexy woman to save their life. LOL.

RGA, thanks for the thoughtful point of view. I think you nailed it.
I'm an old white guy and at times it seems the media makes us out to be villains but its perception.
My wife will comment on the lack of strong Asian characters. We often see eye candy Asian ladies or a very minor player. Asian Americans are often invisible.
