    I have no problem with women leads or strong female characters. We had Leia, Ripley, Sarah Conners....... The problem I have is when they change genders, race,or sexual orientation of characters male or female just to make a statement.

    I think sometimes they change genders, etc. just to give the writers something new to write about. With everything having been remade six times, it’s nice to have some variety.

    @gmonkey76 Absolutely agree. The two latest SW films for example had main protagonists be females and that was perfectly fine. But making Ghostbusters with all female cast did feel a bit like they were making a statement, plus basically all films these days tend to have strong female protagonists or replace perfectly acceptable male characters with a female while the reviewers and online community still rant about that theres not enough female 'heroes' on screen.  I fear we will soon get a female Sherlock Holmes or Hercule Poirot (and not just a woman using deduction but has to be Holmes had a sex change or whatever and wear a deer stalker and Dr Watson would also have to be a woman).

    And with DW, PC just defeats itself since any return to a male doctor would be viewed as sexist which means that we can never have a 'black' doctor (which would have been pretty cool).

    And how about Fantastic Beasts?! Why does Dumbledore all of a sudden have to be homosexual? If it had been made obvious in his first screen appearances or if him being gay was mentioned in the books then fine, but changing it?

    Now to make this relevant to Lego, PC has infiltrated Lego too and thats terrible. I cant believe when people get so triggered because theres like one more male minifig in a City set then female. And theres always a push to 'break traditional gender roles' since apparently if little girls dont see lego firefighters with lipstick they are going to think they cant be firefighters... Its NOT discrimination if boys distinctly like being police and girls distinctly want to be nurses.

    I'm still waiting for a male nurse in Lego.... O and a non CMF male barista that doesnt have a 'female' torso... Speaking of which, these gender specific torsos dont help the issue. For those wishing simply to have eg a male barista it makes life difficult but has now also made lego torsos very specific so that one cannot just change the heads anymore and if anything locks characters into gender roles even more (such as all pilots so far have had normal 'body shapes' so technically that now means that we can't have female pilots when previously they all had one body shape and there was no problems created)

    We all know Women of NASA. I'll ask again why couldn't Hilltop Observatory been chosen (I know there would have been lots of over issues but well discuss this). Is it not better to celebrate men & women working together towards the exploration of space? Is that not 'educating' children more? Now I highly support those women mentioned in WoN getting recognition but I'm sure they would rather be mentioned in books on space and memorial plagues, that sort of thing, then one overpriced lego set that I highly doubt many kids bought away. (Btw I would be damn sure the average girl space fan would rather buy a interesting, playable set like a City space shuttle and have female astronauts then be concerned about the specific achievements of women or men of nasa in a set that was just a battlepack)

    The thing with PC, racism sexism etc. in Lego, my biggest issue is yes, there most certainly is discrimination in society but both the lego group and the rest of society should be fighting for peoples rights in the workplace not messing with childrens toys. How about a equal gender and race workforce at the Lego group with real people instead of pieces of plastic?
    If Lego starts releasing brown faced minifigures in its non licensed themes, is that really going to help 'non white' people? Is it going to stop the KKK? No. And lego can make every single STEM related set be all females, is that going to give those women struggling from discrimination any more rights? No. Is having OCD over an exact ratio of male-female minifigs in every set going to equalize the pay gap? No.

    Does political correctness do anything to help anyone except those wishing to gain publicity by wearing there 'anti-racist' 'anti-sexist' 'anti-everything white/European' badges? No.

    Its always sadly astonishing to me how many other entitled people of my gender and race can’t stand the idea of diversity. Disguise it by saying whatever you like, but there’s always a simple answer as to what it is at its core

    But in the context of Doctor Who it makes sense? Its a show about a time travelling alien who changes faces, is it really that shocking to end up as not a man one time?
    Because Drs. can only men.  Er.  Maybe... a time-traveling shape-shifting alien can only be a man?  Huh.  Minidolls won't sell.  Baaah.  Market Street isn't a modular... aaack!

    Frankly, I'd be more concerned about bad, uninspired writing.  Whether or not something is a 'statement' is irrelevant if it gets the show cancelled.  You can make 'statements' all day to an empty room...

    And we've hit argumentum ad absurdum.  Someone break out the Stormtroopers whacking a ex-horse with plastic baseball bats.

    Why the criticism of 'organic'?  That's an odd throw-away inclusion.  Personally, I hate the word 'proactive' because it literally is a redunant made-up work.  Organic has a few actual meanings.

    The new Ghostbusters was bad because of its writing. The gender of the main characters is hardly relevant. Also, I'm pretty sure there's already a female Holmes television show, although I might be mistaken. 

    Even in the absurd scenario where the Doctor can no longer be played by a male, there is no reason they cannot be black.

    J. K. Rowling is known to be of two minds when it comes to her work. She's also expressed regret at pairing Hermione with Ron and some of the ways she concluded the story. Dumbledore's sexuality is just one example of this U-turn, and it's not even a change.

    When has there been a significant backlash against a slight male majority in minifigure line-ups? I'd argue people sooner get their pants in a knot over a female majority. Either way, it's not a popular opinion at all and certainly not one many people listen to.

    You're concerned that your identity is being compromised, and that's fair enough. I'm not going to lazily label you a racist or sexist or whatever just because you feel everything you're familiar with is at risk of being permanently compromised. However, I think you're incorrect in your assumption that they will.
  • BrickchapBrickchap AustraliaMember Posts: 339

    This is not an absurd argument. These are realistic facts. Mass immigration and low birth rates of white Britons means that in the near future we could very likely see a Britain without any ethnic Britons. Or (another example) a Germany where the population majority does not speak German as a first language.

    I  criticize organic because as I said its overused so much that it has lost its meaning. You go in a supermarket and they sell organic vegetables and organic meat. Vegetables COME FROM THE EARTH they are 'organic' already. Now I understand theres GM foods and pesticides and all that but cmon they're vegetables!! Meat comes from animals who are natural living creatures. Labeling that as 'organic' is crazy. And then organic crisps (aka packet chips) WTH Ok so they got a 'organic' potato (that is natural anyway) and what, cooked it in a oven made of dirt?? It is the same with diversity which people will us e

    Political correctness is an excuse to take away free speech and democracy. People who support it are merely sheep who are greedy for power which in this case is the power to ridicule others and destroy their lives by finding them 'guilty' of made-up crimes.


    And tmgm528 How does this not concern you in any way? Do you think an England where the majority of the population is English is racist?  The thing is, diversity on its own is ok, but in the 21st century it means that the West must lose its own identity and culture and only refer to its history in a negative way in order to accommodate these warped utopian ideas of multiculturalism.
    Heres a thought, has Europe not always been diverse anyway? Or are the cultures of France and Poland for example the exact same thing since their both 'white' and 'European'?

    Ah you misread the sarcasm entirely. In my comment the serious issue of climate change and the resulting destruction of life is presented in contrast to the comments bothered about what color or gender human life is.

    TL:DR Human life is important, what shape or form that life takes is not.

    Ok, I’m going to try to get back on track by listing sets that I’d like.

    Daleks in Manhattan Showdown - top of Empire State construction with Dalekanium panels, Dalek Secc, Doctor, Martha and Laszlo minifigures.

    Blink playset - Wester Drumlins build with play features like moving panels to reveal messages under the wallpaper and trapdoors for figures who are caught by the angels. Sally Sparrow, Larry Nightingale and weeping angel minifigures.

    Rosa Parks Bus - Bus with Rosa Parks, Doctor, James Blake and Graham O’Brien minifigures.

    I would be very down for a creepy Wester Drumlins play set. It could look a lot like the Haunted Mansion. 

    Rather than the Daleks in Manhattan set I would replace it with a mid sized Battle of Canary Wharf set. With a spinning time vortex and a couple of daleks and cybermen. 

    The Ghost monument would be a good way to get the current Tardis team and be an alien location as well.

    I would love a CMF series or two but I do not think that they are likely.  With the most current season being complete anti-western European male garbage, I've lost interest and will no longer watch the show.
    Nonsensical anti-"political correctness" ranting driven by a ludicrous persecution complex? I wish I could say I was surprised to read this kind of stuff here on Brickset…

    I was speaking of the actual stories, if they can be called that, of the most recent season.  That and the fact that the one white guy on the cast is there to apologize for all of the "evil" things white men have done.  I couldn't care less what gender or skin hue the doctor is/has.

    The fact is that the ratings are in the toilet and people are moving on to other things.  There's no impetus for Lego to throw money at it right now when there are better and more profitable enterprises and licenses to capitalize on.

  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 13,453
    I would also note, that LEGO primarily sells to kids - thus the endless supply of Batman, Spider-Man, Star Wars, Friends and Ninjago.

    The 'risky' themes have been Angry Birds, and the upcoming Overwatch sets.  Also geared to kids.

    Unless it's an Ideas or Architecture set, I wouldn't expect any more Dr. Who.

    @SumoLego and as was established Dr Who is prohibited from being submitted again on ideas. 

    I wouldnt say that it is a risky line. Its popularity has remained pretty strong. The numbers of people watching Dr Who has gone up over the last couple of series. It has a bigger female audience as well. Sure it isnt as big as Star Wars (what is) but it is more popular than the simpsons or angry birds. Both were declining when made. 
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 13,453
    Ghostbusters started as an Ideas set, and by some magic, we got a substantial follow-up set. 

    But I doubt, given that Dr. Who does not enjoy the same popularity in the North American market as elsewhere, that there will be a similar follow-up set.  (One never knows when LEGO opts to sneak in an AFOL set.)
    Both were declining when made. 
    Considering there really is no objective way to discuss a product or franchise's universal popularity - I don't agree that Angry Birds, Simpsons or Dr. Who is necessarily more or less popular.  They appeal to different segments of the market.

    With regard to Dumbledore, him having been infatuated with Grindelwald was heavily hinted at in the final book, and Rowling confirmed after that book's release that she had intended him to be gay.
    That said, it's weird to uphold this as an example of a "political correctness"-driven retcon, considering that most of the more left-leaning folks I know felt like Rowling's post-hoc confirmation of Dumbledore's sexuality felt like a cheap excuse for failing to include more visible LGBT representation in the original books/movies.

    That's the kind of stupid question white supremacists tend to ask. The reality is that there's no such thing as "racial purity" and never has been. A person with one white British parent and one Pakistani parent is still just as ethnically British as they are ethnically Pakistani, and only racists and idiots think that there's something more "impure" about that than having one white British parent and one white German or French parent.
    Frankly (no pun intended), from a historical perspective it's absurd to treat "English" and "British" as meaning the same thing since the origins of the term are for the ethnically distinct ruling groups before and after the Anglo-Saxon conquest. Never mind subsequent events like the Norman conquest that introduced more genetic diversity and further reduced the number who could make any valid claim to be of "pure" British ancestry. Yet somehow you still have dimwits who think that the lightness of their skin makes them "more British" than people with one or more parents of Asian or African descent.

  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 19,314
    Please try to remain on topic everyone. If your comment isn't about LEGO Doctor Who then it probably doesn't belong on this thread!

    On that subject, I think a large scale Dalek, akin to #75871 BB-8 or #75974 Bastion, would be interesting. A thirteenth Doctor could be included too, given the imminent arrival of the Daleks in the New Year special!
    I imagine they would need to carefully balance the old and new. Personally I have no interest in the 13th Doctor or a modern dalek, but would buy a Tom Baker and 1970s dalek. Do they go current or for nostalgia or try to target both young and old?
  • tmgm528tmgm528 Member Posts: 457
    Back on the subject here - I think Doctor Who is really tricky to Lego-ize, despite my love for it. There are iconic characters, enemies, episodes - but relatively few iconic ships and the like. If I had to throw out some ideas...
