As for the ALIEN lifecycle it was simply a case of nature's "Ichneumonoidea wasps" which inspired the lifecycle, rather than feminism or "equality"
...let alone LGBT which was not featured in any sci-fi sans the prophetic "the forever war" novel by Joe Haldeman.
What has that got to do with anything I said?
It doesn't. And discussing or wanting female Predators has nothing to do with any "SJW agendas" or anything like that. I think that whinge was completely unwarranted. An interest in that has existed long long before SJW. And there's nothing wrong with being interested in seeing a female Predator either.
I'm not interested in humanising the Predator, not interested in how a Predator reproduces; not my ballpark.
But I would say that features we typically see as feminine or masculine need not necessarily apply to an E.T.
That's why I'm hesitant about including any female Predators. I think it's really interesting that Alec and Tom pushed for it in this, but I've still yet to see something that I love. I strongly dislike any idea of giving them a humanised feminine figure. I would especially hate to see breasts.
I was talking to Xenomorphine about it yesterday and we were saying that it's fun to think of the ones we've seen already as being the females.
If it is like humanoids then it would be a heterosexual male and female relationship and I mean Male and Female.
Gay couples cannot reproduce end of story. You need a female womb and a male sperm donor regardless of species.
Call me a throw-back Conservative nothing changes nature.
There are other ways of reproduction than the human male/female pairings. As Alec mentions in the podcast, nature has already given us a-sexual beings.
Thank you for Podcast,Love you guys !
And for the record, LGBT characters are necessary and I do believe for a long time they've been underrepresented
but like any character- they have to have depth, which a lot of token LGBT characters don't-
often they're unrealistically flawless under studio request (Because they fear offending anyone)
Or completely token because the writer has no real knowledge of LGBT life experience.
I completely agree with this. It wasn't until these last few years that I really comprehended just how important representation is. Whether that is sexual orientation or race or ethnicity.
