iconic doesnt even begin to cover how luke comes into the rebellion five years late with starbucks and his poncho/bucket hat combo while talking about womprats and saving their asses in the span of a few days
Assuming every Overwatch character is gay without any evidence of any of their sexual preferences (except maybe Anahardt cause those two flirt together in-game) then proceeding to attack STRAIGHT/BI people for liking STRAIGHT ships (cause you know, its not like they enjoy those ships because that is their sexual preference just like how some gay people prefer their ships to also be gay…) and finally accusing them of being homophobic is the most backwards tumblr logic I have ever seen.
Honestly just stop. I am sick of seeing all of the unwarranted hate.
Personally, I support both gay and straight ships but some people prefer to ship only straight or gay ships. Which is fine, but stop bringing other people down for preferring something else. Cause that is about as stupid as someone telling me that I am not allowed to prefer puppies over kittens because kittens are clearly “the better choice because it is not heteronormative”.
Stop being a little bitch over shipping fictional characters. You enjoy your ships and we enjoy ours.
Straight cis white women need to realise that a. they are not going to face the worst things that will come out of trump’s presidency and b. 66% of white women voted trump so we should maybe stop pretending being a white woman makes you exempt from racism
London and the Culture of Homosexuality -- Masterpost
I’ve finished the book London and the Culture of Homosexuality, 1885-1914 by Matt Cook. We’ve learned a lot along the way and now that it’s finished, I thought I’d compile everything into one post for easier access.
Saying we can’t use a character “looking gay” as evidence for their sexuality is Bad. Don’t say that.
Here’s the thing; I look gay. Two of my closest friends who identify as lesbian Look Gay. Of COURSE not all lesbians have short dyed hair, and not all gay guys dress well, but damn if that girl has short colorful hair and repeatedly rejects potential male love interests and plays softball (or quidditch), or that boy bites his lip while telling another guy he looks good and dresses better than I do, I’m gonna raise an eyebrow.
Honestly, assuming everyone is straight is extremely damaging to questioning LGBT youth. I grew up around a narrative that Everyone Is Straight. I didn’t even know what “gay” meant until I was twelve, and my reaction was essentially, “wait, that’s a thing?” The assumption that everyone is straight until proven queer is disgusting. No one has to prove they are straight to the rest of the world. If anything, I’m fighting to prove I’m gay. I cut my hair. Pretty soon I’m gonna dye it. I dress more androgynously. And yet, I’m still met with shock whenever I come out to people.
If I, a lesbian, relate to a character and wish to believe they are gay like me, I’m not hurting you. Stop telling LGBT people they’re “stereotyping” themselves and let us take the representation we can get.
