having roadhog be a straight everday family man with a wife and kids before the omnic crisis then having him shipped with junkrat gives of unfortunate implications that I don’t like (and the creepy feeling is a billion times worse when junkrat is trans).
i mean, i’ve only seen him written as a part of the lgbt community pre-omnium explosion a couple of times?
and its usually never addressed? not even in the tags? if you headcanon him as bi/pan/was closeted gay, it be something to know?
i dunno, i mean if it was just a couple of fics i’d go huh he’s bi/pan or something, cool! but seeing this trope over and over again gives off the implication that his same gender attraction was a result of desperation from living in the irradiated outback, like the murder and violence. and that junkrat is a cheap replacement to the Pure Wholesome Cis Family and then i start to smell heterosexism in the air…
I’m not upset at anyone in particular, this is just a plea to be a little more self aware with the tropes you use?
