Do you think what they keep doing with Harley and Ivy particularly in the new 52 is queerbaiting? as a huge Harley fan I kinda see that as just harley being harley, I've always seen her as over the top friendly/flirty with everyone (like all the times growing up I watched her flirt with batman though I was sure it meant nothing) but at the same time as a queer person, and someone who for most of my life though of Harley and Ivy as a couple it seems like they're like here have it, but not really
”Queer baiting: When people in the media (usually television/movies) add homoerotic tension between two characters to attract more liberal and queer viewers with the indication of them not ever getting together for real in the show/book/movie.”
I do think so. I mean, in her annual, Poison Ivy lost her memory temporarily, the girl didn’t remember a thing, she didn’t remember who the hell was Harley Quinn, yet Harls kissed her, like okay. And Poison Ivy didn’t even freaked out, or pushed her, or something. She was like ‘’Oh, a stranger kissed me with no reason, I’m okay with that.’’
And in her newest issues, where they’re in the floor like ‘Heheheheh is dat your hand ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)‘, was that really necessary?
I quit reading her new solos after Harls and Power Girl fought a pizza alien, but I bet my cell phone and my two cats that they’re not in a relationship yet.
