    Unfortunately, it *would* be just trying to make a statement about how “women can do anything a man can do”, and proof of that lies in the following simple question:

    Would we be discussing a potential change of gender if this was a role that had been played by women for 49 years? No? Didn’t think so. Until we can assure ourselves that this change would be up for discussion entirely REGARDLESS of gender, then yes, it is just trying to shoehorn a woman into the role for no other valid reason than to prove to an hysterical minority that we’re not a bunch of nasty ol’ sexist pigs.

    • I don’t see why we wouldn’t be discussing it if they wanted to change from a woman to a man. It’d be just as big a change in a character. Are you suggesting it’d never be considered, or that there’d be no push back to it?
