I've always equated Willow with being bisexual, though very much so leaning more towards women. Please explain why this is such a bad thing??
Because Willow herself identifies as gay. We aren’t taking away or ignoring her love for Oz by her identifying that way, but she is no longer attracted to men, and if she chooses to identify that way, then that is up to her.
Sexuality changes. Take my housemate for example. She has spent most of her life identifying as a lesbian. Until about 8 months ago, when she started dating a man. She now identifies as bi. But does that mean she was always bi? No, because she had never been attracted to men before.
Willow was attracted to men (Oz, Xander, Giles) but isn’t anymore. Nor does she show any attraction to men– except in Him, which lets ignore because she wanted to turn him into a woman anyway– once she begins identifying as a lesbian.
It’s up to Willow to label herself, and if she believed she was bi, I would have no problem with it whatsoever (hello, I’m bi myself) but if Willow identifies as a lesbian, then that’s what she is.
So, I’m wondering, do the other cookie animals feel sorta ripped? Like, is the hippo going, “Hey, man, where are my pants? I have my hippo dignity!” And you know the monkey’s just, “I mock you with my monkey pants!” And there’s a big coup in the zoo.
