I remember getting a message like this before in the past and I decided to ignore it, but now I just want to give you the reason why I don’t care about the Joker’s sexuality. I’ve collected every Joker comic from 1940 to 2005 excluding cameos, which has come out to the grand total of 305 comics. Now, I can name one or two stories where the Joker is shown to be interested in a relationship with someone, but that’s the most that I can think of and they were one-offs anyways. They didn’t work at all.
Can you give me an example of a story going into the Joker’s asexuality? Oh no, you can’t, wanna know why? Because it would not make a good story, the Joker’s lack of interest in romantic relationships is not something people are waiting bated breath for. A story where the Joker creates his own fish products or bumps off his henchmen for revenge are great stories.
I’m acephobic now? I actually had to look up that word if I’m to be frank, but no, I don’t care what people do. You seem to though, I may disagree with them, but I wouldn’t ever stop them from saying what they want or doing what they want. I firmly believe in creative freedom, if they want to make something that they enjoy, go right ahead.
You accuse me of bigotry and display it yourself by trying to impose your opinion on me. If people want to explore Joker’s asexuality they can, but I’m not because it has not been some kind of defining trait of the Joker, and making sexuality out to be a super important thing about the character bothers me. I don’t give a shit if the character is straight, gay, or whatever, their personality and development is what attracts me and others.
God I’m just remembering that post from weeks back that was the “nobody knows your true Eros” clip from episode 3 and it had the caption “this is some next-level queer bating” like mate. We got it so wrong.
