I agree with the idea that representation is overplayed these days. As I grew up in school, most of the books they had me read featured characters that didn't reflect me in gender or race. But I never really had a problem with it, because regular people who have actual empathy can connect with what is human in another character.
Right now there are people throwing fits that their exact race/gender/sexuality hasn't appeared as a character in Overwatch or other games. Meanwhile I have to wonder if they really just lack human empathy.
