My problem with FE13's handling of queerness
Ever since I started playing the game about two months ago I’ve had trouble putting my finger on exactly what I found wrong with the homoeroticism in FE13. I’m not talking about the lack of same-sex S supports, because that’s built into the mechanics of a second generation so it’s grudgingly understandable. Rather, so many of the support conversations (and I’ve not even gotten them all yet) have these uncomfortably handled queer moments - Avatar gets them the most since his/her C-A supports seem to be largely the same regardless of gender, but there are other instances - Sully’s gender nonconformity showing up in almost all of her supports, the infamous Virion/Libra, etc. They all have one thing in common, something that is practically nonexistent in every FE before: they acknowledge the prospect of homoeroticism only to immediately shut it down, usually by playing it off as a joke. I distinctly remember multiple instances of things like “That’s not what I mean” or “I’m not that kind of guy/girl” or just general freaking out over the possibility of a homoerotic situation.
FE homoeroticism is out of the closet, and the results are not pretty.

have fun bitching about me saying ‘i have no reason to feel like that’ and all the other bullshit excuses you come up with to make yourselves feel better about being dicks.
