“Because we shouldn’t have to”:  The Straightwashing of Mystique and a Call to Arms for Femslash in the XMCU

Okay, so I want to open this post by saying that I’m gonna get critical.  On the eve of the US release of X-Men: Apocalypse, I feel that this needs to be said, so I am gonna say it. 

The X-movies need to stop straightwashing Mystique.  Additionally, the fandom needs to stop letting them.

While his is not particularly festive when it comes to this “topic”, Guzma is very well aware that he is not the only individual in his gang to be in a relationship with someone of their own gender– along with knowing that there are individuals that are LGBT in SKULL.

So, with that– Guzma is admittedly still shy when it comes to this. There’s a brief mumble:

[ ☠ ] — “Happy Pride Month… Issat how ya do it?”


ooc; I’d just like to repost something that a friend of mine posted on Facebook for this topic:

Happy Pride Month. I’d like to remind you that the first Pride was a riot, started by a transwoman of color. The second Pride was a celebration of the community finally standing up to years and years and years of discrimination and brutality. Our rights have been scraped and brawled for since the dawn of time, and our rights go so far beyond marriage equality.

Our rights as Queer people are once again being threatened, so this Pride Month STAND UP and do your queer ancestors proud. Reach out to an older member of the community and ask them to share their stories with you. Join a protest. Call your representatives. Be unequivocally you. Be safe.

And mostly, be proud of who you are. We’re family. 💕

Do all of you remember this post from Twitter of this guy and Jennifer Lee made one year and a half ago? I’m sure you do. Well, what I can say about it is that, now that Frozen 2 is officially confirmed, make more sense now. And it makes even more sense if you read this part from this interview made by MTV to Chris Buck: “We have two very strong female leads in ’Frozen,” Buck said. “We will keep that going in the next one. We will tackle other issues that, I think, are out there today that boys and girls, men and women, are dealing with.” “I think we’re very aware of what is happening in society,” he added. “I don’t think any of us take [them] lightly, even though they can be very funny and entertaining, the messages that our movies have and the influence they can have on young people. When the kids [watch] them, they watch them over and over again, and if we don’t have a decent message in there, I think we’ve missed an opportunity.” Is Chris Buck referring to LGBT community? Reading some comments of this interview, it could be possible. The issues that boys, girls, men and women are dealing with, are the issues because of their homosexuality? The awareness of what is happening in society, is the marriage equality that is happening step by step all over the world (marriage equality in USA happened almost two months ago)? I really hope this. Frozen 2 will probably come out in 2018, there are other 3 years to come and there will certainly be some changes in them. Maybe other same-sex marriages in other countries, maybe more acceptance in the world. Let’s pray for the first queer Disney princess/queen to happen.

  • Steven: GARNET! AMETHYST! PEARL! GREAT NEWS! EVERYONE CAN GET MARRIED NOW!
  • Pearl: Oh, humans finally sorted that out? That's nice
  • Amethyst: Neat!
  • Garnet: Your mother would have loved to see that.
  • Steven: We should have a wedding for Ruby and Sapphire!!
  • Pearl: Steven, a bond like theirs is about the gem equivalent of your marriage, we really don't need to--
  • Garnet: Steven, you are my ring bearer. Let's go.
Raise your hand if you're genuinely terrified of the homophobia and bigotry that the plebiscite will bring out in people

“Yeah, and I’m real happy for the folks who can finally marry whoever they wanna, but there’s no need for either of us to be that excited. I mean, Sam is straight, and you and I wouldn’t wanna marry anyway, so maybe both of you should just chill out already. You’ve been yapping about this since breakfast and it’s starting to get annoying.”

Castiel just hums low in his throat and places a kiss on Dean’s belly, to where he’s lifted his Zeppelin shirt to make room for his head and a lot of kisses. Here, Dean is especially warm and soft and lovely, and that is exactly why Castiel loves his tummy so: because it is true to Dean. It also growls often, but only ever when Dean is hungry. Whenever he hungers for something. Just like now, there’s a small noise rumbling just beneath Cas’ lips.

“So you have been saying all day,” Castiel easily confirms and placates Dean’s grumbling belly with another kiss. “But I wonder if all of that is as true as you make it out to be. Sam has already told me once about how he used to involve himself with other young men when he was at Stanford, and I have certainly never mentioned anything about disapproving of marriage. One between you and me specifically. And regardless of gender. So if neither of these facts – or assumptions – are true, I do wonder what it says about the third one. About your own disapproval of getting married.”

Cas can feel Dean’s heart rate pick up a beat or two through Dean’s soft skin and against his lips, can hear and kiss the blush that is rushing through Dean’s body and into his freckled cheeks. “What’s your point, Cas?” Dean asks, defiant, and the slight tremble to his voice and to his frame makes Castiel smile softly.

“My point is… if I were to ask you to take me as your husband,” his smile grows even more at the title, the sound of it so easy off his tongue, “would you say yes?”

Dean’s heart is furious in his chest, beating and beating under Castiel’s raspy cheek now resting against it, and he’s staring at Castiel with wide, round eyes. He seems to have understood that this is in no way a joke, or maybe he had secretly hoped for this to happen and was in some way prepared. Either way, Castiel is just glad that Dean’s not trying to downplay his proposal. Not turning a joke out of an offer of forever. Instead, Dean smacks his lips and swallows harshly and trembles just enough for Cas to pick up on it and for him to run a soothing hand over his side.

The hand on his bare flank seems to help Dean snap out of his shock, of the wonder in his eyes. He blinks in rapid succession, processing and understanding, then averts his gaze for the moment it takes him to visibly get a hold of himself again. He breathes in and out and only then does he look back to Castiel, into his face, which is open with a smile.

And opens Dean’s alike.

“I would.”

I seem to have a thing for drabbles. I don’t feel very confident about my language skills but writing 100 words exactly seems to be a good exercise. 

So, here you go, to celebrate marriage equality in Britain, have a drabble. Mystrade, 100 words, PG.

“You know that I don’t usually have Times delivered to my workplace, right?”

“I am aware. But you worked all night and did not collect your newspapers at home this morning.”

“I see. Am I looking for something specific?”

“Uhm… It had a long time coming…”

“What? What had a—ah. Oh.”

“I do require your answer, Gregory.”

“My answer?”

“How long has it been since you last slept? You do seem to be having some problems concentrating.”

“Mycroft.”

“I am waiting.”

“Gosh, Mycroft. Only you—are you actually proposing me with a new law?”

“Gregory.”

“Yes. Of course, yes.”
