I'm very confused. What happened with supergirl and once?? What am I missing
So for once Once Upon a Time did things right. They’ve announced that they will have a new season seven LGBT character, admitted their previous representation was “a special episode” and that this would be a character who is gay not a gay storyline. Also heavily implied a romance so … more likely two LGBT characters. They’ve also taken their show with one person of color in a 9 member cast and they now have a majority woman of color cast.
Supergirl’s cast decided to take the opportunity of their biggest publicity even of the year to sing a jokey rap that included screaming about how a fanon queer ship was never going to happen. Included in the interview train wreck from hell was the assertion that attending musical theater school meant you understood people making assumptions about sexuality and that was the same thing as gay people wanting fictional people to be non-straight. Talking over a costar who was trying to walk back the mess. Issuing an apology that talked about how hurt they were people were mad at them. Telling gay people they were attacking their allies. And threatening to sue a 19 year old girl who wrote a thoughtful letter about how the entire thing made her feel.
Isn’t it nice to be in OUAT fandom for once where we’re not the ones on fire in the dumpster on fire on the ship full of dumpsters on fire which is also on fire?
