Jemma Simmons spending her time researching important people of SHIELD.
She comes across Peggy Carter’s info and gets a file to take home and read through.
And when she gets to the part about Peggy’s relationship with Angie Martinelli that happened around when Peggy formed SHIELD, her little bi heart explodes in joy and she starts dancing around her apartment/house because HER FAVOURITE HISTORICAL WOMAN IS BI, JUST LIKE HER.

as a teenager in a PhD program, Jemma Simmons is not exactly surrounded by her peers, and while she’s got plenty of friendly acquaintances and lots of her classmates will ask her to join their groups at whichever social events that she can legally get into, she’s largely responsible for making her own fun. On one of her idle trips to the library, she picks up a book about her countrywomen’s contributions to war efforts and gets rather hung up on one Peggy Carter, known as the woman beside Captain America and the founder of S.H.I.E.L.D. Soon she’s devouring all of the information she can get her hands on about Peggy; she personally doesn’t think anything is off about her small Peggy Carter scrapbook or the fact that she goes through a phase of wearing “Peggy Carter red” lipstick, but when she hangs a poster-sized photograph of Peggy in her dorm room, her roommate kindly suggests she might have a crush; for Jemma, who has heretofore believed herself straight and just very picky, it’s something of a revelation, not just regarding her slight obsession but regarding a rather larger personal preference.
