I was gonna make some big ol’ response post to someone about why I’m sick of people responding to upset over things like the Batwoman situation with “well they’re not homophobic, if you’re gonna be mad, be mad for the right reasons”
but you know what, fuck that
bottom line is if you think “they’re not homophobic” is a point in someone’s favor instead of bare fucking minimum for being a sentient human being
you can go eat shit
I don’t give a fuck how “not homophobic” you are if you don’t actively care about representing queer people like actual, developed human beings
Representation isn’t important as a commodity meant to make companies like DC seem ~politically correct~. It’s so people like me can read a fucking comic book and see someone we can actually, maybe, relate to, for once.
shit like this isn’t a fucking talking point, it’s not a matter of what was ~intended~. I fucking hate how straight people sling “homophobia” around like not suffering it means you shit diamonds. Homophobia is not even on the goddamn table here.
and don’t EVER tell any oppressed person what reason is appropriate for them to be angry about something they’re victim to.
Hello, hello! AAAH I couldn’t hold back so I finally went ahead and bought his gorgeous prince! Let’s just jump right in because I am so darn excited to talk about his route!
This review is for the absolutely gorgeous prince, Yakov Chernenkov’s Main Route! This route contains much fangirling and minimal spoilers, but I promise they won’t ruin the route! Thank you so so much for reading! ヽ(･ω･ゞ)
DAMN YOU VOLTAGE, when I think I found my one true love you just throw another one at me. I thought that my love for Wilfred and the other princes could never be pushed away by someone else, but oh my goodness, I love Yakov. I love him. I am actually IN LOVE WITH HIM.
I thought his grandkid Ivan’s route was fantastic, but nope, sorry Ivan, your grandpa beat you to the punch. I really thought that Yakov would have a similar personality to Ivan but they’re actually very different. And it is that exact difference that I just adored.
Ivan is a pretty cool and awesome guy. Just like his granddad he excels at war strategy and being a commander in leading forces and all that jazz. They both are passionate about their country and love their people. But Ivan literally puts his country ahead of himself and nothing else can come between that.
Yakov is a little more different in the way that despite him wanting the best for his country and being just as passionate, he knows that when he wants something, he can’t let go of it.
I JUST. OH GOD. It was so good. SO GOOD. ꉂ (ᵔ̴̶̤᷄ꇴ ॣᵔ̴̶̤᷅⌯)
