Sketched comic discussuion: Being terrible without being awful

This is something different today. There are a few graphic novels, specifically noir books, that I wanted to review, but I didn't know how to feel about them. One the one hand, I feel uncomfortable by the source material because there're some things in these that are misogynistic, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, racist and really just hateful. But on the other hand, a lot of noir is about terrible people doing and saying terrible things in a den of seedy grime.  I want to unequivocally like these noir stories. I love noir. But I don't feel right recommending them to people when they outright demean marginalized groups. I don't always want to have to call out when one more story is about a cis straight white male with daddy issues and herteronormative sex hang ups and all the things surrounding him are problematic. I don't want to have to keep calling it out on every single story. Should I?  Can we have great noir stories about filthy, reprehensible people without contributing to an overall narrative that seems to alienate anyone who isn't white, straight and male?
Instead of stuff from books, I'm just sketching more diverse nori characters.
And if you don't like it you can PUT IT IN THE SUCK IT BUCKET.
