Damn, back at it again not posting about nct like I'm supposed to be doing on this blog
Okay here it is yall. We dont know whats going on with f(x) yet but we are all worried about Amber and the fate of the group. HOWEVER!!!!! Just because there is the possibility of your faves disbanding (and i understand, theyre one of my faves too) that does NOT give you the right to post things like “take super junior and big bang instead” That is extremely disrespectful to the rest of us who are fans of those groups as well as to the groups themselves who have done NOTHING TO OUR GIRLS. I don’t care what you think about suju or BB but i will not stand by the disrespect being thrown about like nothing other this issue.
And yes, i am absolutely worried about Amber. She was my first female bias and f(x) was the first kpop girl group i really liked. I am devestated that they might be disbanding but i will never ever condone disrespect to other groups who have done nothing to contribute to this.
The censorship of Willow and Tara’s relationship in season 4 goes to show how sheltered Willow and girls of her time would have been to lesbian experiences or romance between women. This is still the case now for so many young lesbians including myself. (I accepted my sexuality around the same age as Willow. I had dated boys like Willow did. I had actually dated more boys than Willow did. You see where this is going?)
Saying Willow is bi rather than could have been (definitely not “should have been”) is a microaggression against lesbians. It is lesbophobic. Stop it.
Yes, there are issues with bierasure in it now (read: Buffy) but you can’t just point at a lesbian who went through compulsory heterosexuality in high school over 15 years ago and label her bisexual when she’s been out and proud for years.
I firmly believe the decision to not fully explain this on the show came from not wanting to turn their relationship into a gimmick. I believe it was done out of respect but also due to their limitations on what they could say. Willow herself says on countless occasions, however, that she is a lesbian and clearly has no interest in being with men ever again once she accepts her own orientation.
Respect this. Respect lesbians. Respect our experiences and our stories. Actively seeking to erase us is wrong.
