Fan encyclopedias become further embarrassments

It's very sad how many of today's alleged encyclopedias online for pop culture have taken to wokeness, and according to Bounding Into Comics, the Star Wars site Wookiepedia's another one of those examples:
Amid the current scandal involving Star Wars fan encyclopedia Wookieepedia and their decision to include pronouns on their character pages, the website also labeled Luke Skywalker as an LGBTQ+ character based on a recent short story by activist writer Sam Maggs.

As part of the site’s LGBTQ+ Individuals character page Luke Skywalker is listed alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi, Wilhuff Tarkin, Rae Sloane, Vel Sartha, Chelli Lona Aphra, and others.

When questioned as to why Luke Skywalker was included on the category page, Wookieepedia first answered by writing on Twitter, “There is a story in which he felt romantic feelings towards a guy.”
And based on some brand new fanfiction alone, we're being lectured that Skywalker is homosexual, even though Mark Hamill exclaimed in the 1st movie released in 1977 that princess Leia Organa was beautiful after seeing the video recording of her SOS message stored in R2D2. It also reminds me that, even before this, there was a time when the Batman Wiki would claim Fredric Wertham was "right-wing", even though he was a leftist progressive himself, which just demonstrates how modern leftists are ostensibly embarrassed he turned out to be one of them. And now, similar to what modern leftist comics writers are doing, they're exploiting Wertham's past complaints about subtle homosexuality as an excuse for taking classic creations in that very direction. So because these characters may not have been depicted in romantic relations with the opposite sex in decades past, that automatically validates turning them homosexual, instead of creating new characters, as though it were truly an emergency. It definitely isn't novel today.

Maggs was one of the video game producers who oversaw censorship of Black Cat's cleavage in one of the Spider-Man games of the past decade, and it goes without saying she's an embarrassment for showbiz. Just like almost anybody running the major sites for reference of classic pop culture. People like her continue to dumb down entertainment products, and this is the latest example.
