Shipping Nico with girls is homophobic. There’s nothing more to it. It’s homophobic. The end.

LGBT+ Representation in the Camp Half-Blood Series
  • Percy Jackson and the Olympians: some possible gay subtext, but other than that pretty straight
  • The Heroes of Olympus: first canon LGBT+ characters, plus set up for future same-sex couple
  • The Trials of Apollo: YOU'RE GAY! I'M GAY! THAT GEYSER'S GAY! E V E R Y O N E I S G A Y

honestly disney has spent years coding villains as gay so i shouldn’t be surprised that their first gay character is a villain and that his sexuality is played as a joke but in an ideal world, their first gay character should have been a hero - a gay prince or a lesbian princess or a transgender hero or bisexual/pansexual hero, etc. that’s what lgbtq+ rep should look like in this day and age.

“Let me tell you one thing about these people you don’t what to be associated with, Isak. About the people who have put on tights and mascara and gone out to fight for the right to be themselves. These are people who have, throughout the years, chosen to withstand harassment and experienced hatred. Who have been assaulted and killed. And that is not because they are keen on being different, but because they would rather die than be someone they are not. That, Isak, takes courage on such a completely different level than what most people are able to understand. And I think that until you have fought those battles yourself, until you have had the guts to stand up for who you are, you should be really fucking careful about putting yourself above Gay Pride.”

america chavez is a lesbian. she identifies as a lesbian. the marvel wiki lists her as a lesbian. she’s disgusted by men hitting on her and unashamedly loves women. so the fact that people, from fans to actual media outlets refuse to call her a lesbian is at best concerning at worst extremely lesbophobic. she’s not ambiguously queer. she’s not maybe bisexual, she is a LESBIAN. it’s not a bad word so say it.
