So you're saying that every producer should have a checklist that they have to follow? Every time you write a short story, should someone come behind and make sure that you've not left anyone out that they feel should be there and that there's a fifty-fifty gender balance. What about transgendered folks? What about the overweight? The blind? The left-handed? Nudists?

Why shouldn't everyone be represented in any given story?
I'm going to create an adaptation of 12 Angry Men, except this time it's going to be called 6 Angry Men, 6 Angry Women, 1 of Them Might Be Gay, a few aren't white.
