i am totally lesbian for you

I’ve never seen anyone else make this post, so I GUESS THIS IS UP TO ME:

So waaaaaaaay back in season one of Steven Universe, we got our first ~new fashion~ opportunities for the gems in the episode “Beach Party” where the gems generate cute new beach outfits. Garnet: cute. Amethyst: ultra cute. But Pearl’s didn’t quite sit right with me.

A part of me thought: “Well I guess this shows that Pearl has no idea what a ‘beach party’ entails and is concerned with being proper, thus highlighted by this far-too-fancy dress.” And also “I guess the writers and artists know better than I.” But really at the time I couldn’t get over that it felt somehow too … feminine for Pearl.

Of course this is all pre-”Rose’s Scabbard”, pre-”Jail Break”, pre-lots of things.

Because come seasons three and four we got this:

And then this:

And let’s not forget this look:

And so far capped off with this:

So in conclusion: I am both happy that I always knew it my heart that Pearl is a total butch lesbian, and understand now that the SU crew had to maintain a certain plausible deniability (“oh look at Pearl in this ~nice dress~”) for a while before they could go “just kidding, everyone is super gay all the time.”

Things not to say to your gay friends

“Ew I hate gay guys, but like lesbians aren’t gross.”

“Gays are disgusting. Oh! No, not you, you’re the exception.”

“Yeah, I support gays! I just think they shouldn’t get married.”

“But you’re so pretty……………… For a lesbian:)”

“Oh yeah you’re a lesbian. But like, wouldn’t you hook up with this guy??? He’s so hot am I right?!”

“I’m sure it’s just a phase. I remember when you used to have a crush on this boy [blank] years ago.”

“You’re totally my best gay friend. But like not my best best friend. Get it? Out of all the gays you’re my fav.”

“If I were a lesbian I would toooootally do you.”

“Yeah being gay is totally okay as long as you don’t rub it in our faces.”

“You’re a feminist, of course you’re gay!”

“I don’t feel comfortable with you discussing anything that is related to the lgbt community.”

“But you can’t be Christian now.”

“Wait! You don’t happen to have a crush on me right?”

“Since you came out you’ve been acting more… gay.”

you can’t deny that a woman’s sexual history with men is considered first and foremost when discussing her lesbianism. Sally Ride? Can’t be a lesbian, she married a man. Eleanor Roosevelt? Can’t be a lesbian, she married a man. Every historical lesbian, all the way back to Sappho, has to have her lesbianism questioned, critiqued, and ultimately denied, all because they had, at one point, interacted sexually with men.

Personally, I consider this an especially cruel form of homophobia. Not only were these women denied the right to be lesbians while they lived, but they can’t even be recognized as lesbians in death.

And to top it all off, they are so often denied to be lesbians on the basis of ‘bi erasure.’ You can’t say Sally Ride was a lesbian because she was married to a man so that’s bi erasure. It’s a kind of homophobia that’s masked under the cover of LGBT activism and representation, when in reality it’s not just erasing lesbians, it’s replacing them with ‘better’ versions of themselves: lesbians attracted to men.

I’m not saying bi women don’t exist, or don’t get to take pride in the women who have represented them throughout history. But you don’t get liberal brownie points for coming after lesbians and co-opting history that doesn’t belong to you. Stop being homophobic to make yourselves feel better about being marginalized. It’s rude, it’s cruel, and it’s useless. Take pride in the women and history that is actually yours.

Bisexuals in the LGBTA community literally just get shit on constantly.

A bunch of lgbta people I know where throwing a pride party today, and I was literally not invited even though I’m close with a ton of them, and they know how active I am in the community.

When I asked if I could go with a few of them last week, they told me “It’s not really for people like you, it’s more, like us. If that makes sense.” And I flat out asked if it was because I was with a man.

And they all got really shifty eyed and said if I pretended I wasn’t with someone of the opposite sex, it would probably be okay. But that my partner definitely could not come.

It’s great because homophobes hate me.

Straight guys like the idea because it means that I totally consent to a threesome.

And lesbians just think I’m going to make out with them, because I’m “experimenting” (Like I totally haven’t been bisexual for over a decade).

Apparently bisexuals just tarnish the LGBTA’s reputation. Why not just make it the LGTA then?????


Like JFC. We’re queer, we’re here, and everyone wishes we weren’t.

All of The Weekenders were gay as hell!! You cant even deny it! Rewatch the show! None of those kids were straight!!

Carver? Gay as fuck!!! 10 year old me could spot that shit from space!!! try harder!!!

Tish????? Lesbian!!!!! She decided her crushes on boys pragmatically by who was the best traditional folk muscian you CANNOT-

Lor?? Gay AND trans as HECK don’t TEST me!!!!! Definitely came out as a trans man in highschool and grew the raddest sideburns anyones ever seen!!!! !!!!!!

Tino? TINO??? Tino Toni-fuckig-tini was the gayest ace ON PLANET EARTH!!!! I HAVE THE DATA, YOU CAN’T RUN FROM THE TRUTH!!!

ALL. THE. WEEKENDERS. WERE. TOTALLY. GAY.

Isn’t it funny how the villains were queer coded and had screen time. where the only person who wasn’t villain and was queer coded (Not just coded, totally a lesbian), didn’t even get a second of screen time. yeah i am talking about Harry Watson. Yeah Harry is a drinker, Harry left her wife. But Harry is a normal human being. And normal lgbtq people don’t deserve screen time. Only villains can be lgbtq (because you know these people are dangerous) . Main characters cannot be lgbtq. Got it.

I wear my pink triangle everywhere. I do not lower my voice in public when talking about lesbian love or sex. I always tell people I’m a lesbian. I don’t wait to be asked about my “boyfriend.” I don’t say it’s “no one’s business.” 

I don’t do this for straight people. Most of them don’t know what the pink triangle even means. Most of them couldn’t care less that my girlfriend and I are totally in love or having a fight on the street. Most of them don’t notice us no matter what we do. I do what I do to reach other lesbians. I do what I do because I don’t want lesbians to assume I’m a straight girl. I am out all the time, everywhere, because I WANT TO REACH YOU.

So my brother in a totally non malicious but teenage boy-y way keeps calling me gay and idk how to tell him that I am actually gay and i want him to stop because i don't want others to know yet.... idk it's a weird situation haha

Ugh, I know the feeling. I just had a similar conversation with my little brother. It was… interesting, to say the least…

Bro: *playing LoZ:BotW* The Great Fairy looks like a drag queen.
Me: It’s not nice to make fun of drag queens, you know.
Bro: Okay… The Great Fairy looks like a lesbian.
Me: *in a tone icier than Antarctica* “Lesbian” is not an insult. There is nothing wrong with being gay.
Bro: It’s weird, though.
Me: No, it’s not. I guarantee you know someone who’s gay, but doesn’t want to tell you because of stuff like that. I never want to hear you use “lesbian” as an insult again.

So, being the superdork I am, I was going through Katie ‘you can’t have a show without lesbianism’ McGrath’s filmography…

And I stumbled upon her role in Dracula as Lucy Westenra, the sexy, badass bisexual in love with her best friend, Mina Murray.

Obviously, I was totally ready for all the resulting gay angst, but what I wasn’t ready for was the headcanon that popped into my head when I recognized the actress who plays Mina.

It’s Jessica De Gouw.

CAN YOU IMAGINE

LENA LUTHOR MEETING HUNTRESS

THEY HAVE SO MUCH IN COMMON- SHITTY FAMILIES, SEEKING A WAY TO ESCAPE AFOREMENTIONED SHITTY FAMILIES, BRUNETTES WITH GREY MORALS BUT HEARTS OF GOLD

IT’S THE SHIP I NEVER KNEW I WANTED TO SHIP

ALSO THEY BOTH TOTALLY DESERVED BETTER

AAAAAHHHHH WHAT DO I EVEN CALL THEM

LUTHINELLI????

WHO KNOWS BUT I SHIP IT

Here’s an explanation to all those Karamel haters out there that call us homophobics as to why I, as a bisexual young girl, ship Karamel & Sanvers, and not Superc*rp (let me emphasize Sanvers, another lesbian couple, that I don’t post a lot about simply because I love Karamel more than Sanvers). 

When I heard that this season a character from Supergirl was gonna became homosexual, I was really excited. There hadn’t really been a good representation of LGBT couples in DC shows, except Nyssa&Sara (which I miss a lot), so it was amazing for me, because only last year I realized I might be attracted to not only boys but also girls, and it took me some time to get used to and accept that it’s totally normal (let me say that I’m born in a very homophobic society that even my very open-minded parents aren’t so warm to the idea of homosexuality). And when I saw Alex and Maggie, I knew they were the couple. Alex would be lesbian.

I absolutely enjoyed Sanvers storyline, especially Alex’s struggle with her feelings for Maggie and accepting that she might be lesbian after all, because it felt so close to how I felt. I understood her struggle, I understood her feelings, I understood why she couldn’t immediately tell her family and why she couldn’t immediately accept that she was lesbian, because I went through it all. I felt exactly like her last year, and it was my friends that helped me see that it was totally normal to be who I am. I found that in Alex’s character, and her relationship with Maggie will be an amazing role model for young girls out there who struggle with their feelings. It’s that struggle that made me appreciate Alex even more, because let me tell you, it isn’t an easy thing to accept for anyone. Only a minority of people are homosexual (I’m not saying it as a bad thing) and when you see straight people having relationship while there are no homosexual couples (at least in my country) it is really, really hard. Which is why it was easy for me to love Sanvers and empathize with Alex. 

However, I don’t see the same thing with Kara. Now it’s totally possible that Kara might be bisexual, that she might also be attracted to women, but the writers didn’t build her character like that. They wanted her to be straight, at least in my opinion. And one reason that I don’t want Kara to suddenly be bisexual is that, as I pointed out, there’s no build up to that, not like Alex. I’m bisexual, and someone that thought she was straight for 16 years, yet I didn’t suddenly become bisexual. It was a process. It started with seeing a girl and thinking I felt something different for her, something I shouldn’t be feeling. Even when I thought I was straight I had these feelings, and I struggled to repress them. I thought they were wrong. I don’t see any of that with Kara, which makes it really hard for me to emphatize with her. That is why I don’t want her to be bisexual, because it would be undermining the struggle I went through to get where I am, the process of realizing, trying to get rid of, and finally making peace with my feelings. It’s true that we need more representation of LGBT on TV, but making everyone LGBT out of nowhere undermines the real struggle people go through in real life. Just as shows build up straight relationships intricately, LGBT relationships need and deserve the same build up so that people can empathize with them. Kara doesn’t have that now, and maybe will never have that, and it’s okay as long as they don’t force her to become bisexual out of nowhere. Again, I can’t emphasize it enough: it doesn’t just happen out of nowhere

As to why I love Karamel: It’s because I can empathize with their relationship as well. Just as Sanvers/Alex showed me that it’s okay to be homosexual, Karamel showed me that it’s okay to struggle with your true feelings, it’s okay to try to push someone away to avoid getting hurt, and it’s okay to get hurt when you see someone you love with another person. I’ve been through a very similar thing (a guy I had a crush on had a girlfriend) Kara went through when she saw Eve and Mon-El in the last episode, and I felt what she felt. I know how it feels to love someone you think is wrong for you, and I felt that with Kara. I know how it feels like whenever you like someone, it backfires, because I’ve been through the same thing. And you know what, Kara experiencing all of that, being vulnerable and hurting, crying and struggling, it showed me that everything I’ve felt before was normal. It showed me that it’s okay to get hurt, it’s okay to be vulnerable, it’s okay to struggle with your feelings. That is why I also love Karamel, because I also see myself in their relationship, and I can empathize with them.

Just thought you should know.

1/2 Vasquez hc: she's been happily partnered this whole time and when Alex starts at the DEO she goes home and is like, 'good news there's another lesbian at work.' then she tries talking to Alex about gay stuff and realizes HOLY SHIT she's so un-self aware that she doesn't know she's gay. when Kara shows up she's like, 'don't know if this one's gay or not gonna find out' and as time goes on she watches Maggie change Alex's life and then Kara's like 'I looked in Lena' eyes she's innocent' and

2/2 Vasquez is in the background texting her partner like ‘good news Little Danvers is bi you called it babe’             

I am totally here for Vasquez back story!! especially happily in love Vasquez!! can you imagine all of the crazy stories she came home with in season 1? all of the times Alex was just so GAY and didn’t even realize! you know when she got back from all of those shit dates with Maxwell Lord she went and bitched to Vasquez and Vasquez was just like “Oh my god how does she still not realize?!” and when Alex finally DOES realize she comes gushing to Vasquez and of course Susan is just “oh yeah, I knew. I’m glad you finally came to terms with it! Hey our softball league needs a new short stop - do you happen to play?”

And that’s the story of how Alex gets an instant gay support system in Vasquez and how she works on getting through the whole ‘Maggie doesn’t like me like that’.

And then of course she introduces Kara to her new friends and they all hit it off, but Kara has to leave for something and Mrs Vasquez is just like ‘she’s totally bi and doesn’t know it yet.’ And everyone else is kinda like maybe?? I dunno.

BUT then one day Lena is at said gathering of lesbians (for obvious reasons) and Kara shows up and everyone is like ‘ohhhh I totally see it, definitely bi!’ and they encourage Lena to go for it and that’s how little baby gay CEO gets the courage to go after everyone’s favorite bi superhero!

tl;dr - Vasquez and her partner have excellent gaydar and they are top notch matchmakers. also they play on a softball team because can you imagine Alex Danvers in a baseball hat and playing short stop while Maggie cheers her on from the bleachers? Because I can and it’s adorable!
