 Lou Scheimer was born to a German Jewish
 family and believed that his cartoons had a
 responsibility to teach children kindness and
 respect for everybody
 Back then there were also MILITANT divides
 between "boy's" and "girl's" entertainment
 but when he found out He-Man had at least
 a small following of little girls he pitched the
 concept of He-Man's sister She-Ra and was
 insistent she be as tough a warrior as her
 brother. He saw that girls actually did like
 scary" sword and sorcery and had a WHOLE
 EW FUCKING SHOW made so they could
 fee
 l acknowledged and have a heroine to look
 up to with her very own series
 er he would help design a whole new sci-fi
 fantasy setting with the most creative control
 he ever had, Bravestarr, and was adamant that
 the hero be a Native American man, the first
 ever in a starring role on a kid's action show
 He also wanted Bravestarr to be a positive
 role model by being a patient, gentle, soft
 spoken man who abhors violence and avoids
 using guns at all costs
 These cartoons are remembered as schlocky
 toy commercials and they ARE entertaining
 that way but real love went into them by a guy
 who wanted kids to grow up more sensitive
 and caring. Some of these same geeks crying
 about THE SJW'S were raised by even more
 bluntly progressive media than we've almost
 ever had and they didn't even know it
