i-genuinely-tried

A real question:

When was the last time Kate McKinnon publicly spoke about her sexuality? ‘Cuz I can’t figure it out and that makes me feel uneasy.

I was mostly joking about this when I posted about it earlier, but now I can’t stop thinking about it. She’s out, obviously. It was a big deal when she joined the cast of SNL as the first openly gay woman. She plays a significant number of gay/queer characters in her present comedy. She’s been very vocal about it. You can find lots of quotes from her about being gay and figuring out she was gay, but all these quotes, as far as I can tell, are from years ago. Nothing in the recent past seems to come to mind. Even the opening monologue from the Independent Spirit Awards this year had a joke about her being gay, but she didn’t make it herself. The last sort of kind of almost solid thing I can think of is Leslie tweeting “she gay dude stop it lol” to some random on twitter, but even then, Kate was in no way directly involved.

This started swirling around in my brain because I was watching The Hollywood Reporter Emmy’s Roundtable whatchamacallit from last year and was, for the most part, all in for their discourse. They all spoke about sexism in the business and the way they each have to handle and navigate that. Gina Rodriguez and Tracee Ross Ellis both spoke intelligently and passionately about the racism they encounter in addition to and in tandem with the sexism. They spoke on how they maneuver those waters and how the representation of women of color in television and in movies is important in moving the business forward and opening the minds of audiences and producers alike.

So here I am, a queer woman in comedy, obviously waiting for and sort of expecting Kate to speak up about the difficulties and struggles queer women face in terms of treatment in the workplace as well as general representation for them in TV and movies. Now, I’m not saying I want or think that Kate’s sexuality should or need be her central focus in interviews and PR stuff, but I would, I guess, like for it to be a focus—particularly during that roundtable. I think Kate had a completely individual point of view in that group of women and was so uniquely positioned to fold her queerness into the discussion and the fact that she didn’t feels shameful, like a small step backwards almost. I say this in such harsh terms only because she was once so open about it, like, she got her break on a show called The Big Gay Sketch Show. The Big Gay Sketch Show. She obviously cares a lot about her sexual identity because she plays with it so freely and so clearly in her comedy and her art. But it almost feels blatant how much she avoids it publicly now, making jokes that her cat is her family, her cat is her son, her cat is her marriage partner.

And I get that she’s a private person, that’s made very clear, but I’m not asking her to come out. She’s already out. She’s been out. Her work makes it seem like she very much so revels in her outness. I’m not asking her to share pics of her kissing a girlfriend or to disclose personal details about her relationships with women. I’m just asking her to say, now, at this time, when she’s in the spotlight and clearly making magnificent waves in Hollywood, to say to someone, somewhere, publicly: “Hey, just in case you forgot: I’m gay.”

Maybe I’m being selfish. Like I said, I’m a lesbian girl working in this business, making art, auditioning, writing comedy, trying to be funny and create, and I’d like a young queer woman in Hollywood comedy to stand up and use this platform to be as open and straightforward and funny about her queerness as she once was. Like, I’d like her, in this moment when Holtzmann is rattling the bones of queer girls everywhere, to speak up about herself in the community, regardless of whether or not Holtz is canonically gay (which is irrelevant in this moment) (not unimportant, obviously, but I can sort of understand why she’s unable to speak about that aspect of Holtz’s backstory) because she is “canonically” gay and, if nothing else, she can speak on that and the effect that has and is having and could have on young queer people everywhere. Now is a good time for this. Now is an important time for this.

But she hasn’t said anything.

And that makes me sort of sad.

Reasons I am sad

3) I said thank you in the wrong tone of voice and didn’t have the energy to explain myself so I just let my mum get grumpy with me because she thought I was being sarcastic.

There was a girl who was Fire Emblem-kin, she identified as transgender (f2m) ONLY over her Chrom-kin, even though she was also Camilla-kin at the same time- two VERY different characters. She had a Robin-kin girlfriend too, who I think pushed kinbullshit on her, and on top of that, she ended up removing 4 of her friends and myself when I genuinely tried to understand what otherkin was. She was a horrible person to her friends though and even tried to shit-talk me when she removed me via Twitter

ugh <____>

Like, it’s one thing to be called out for not criticizing a show properly. I genuinely have not tried to critique Mob Psycho beyond calling it boring and unfunny. 

But all the dumb messages I’m getting are accusing me of being mean and spamming the tag because they assume I have nothing better to do than terrorize them with negative opinions.

the WORST part is is that i’ve genuinely tried seeking out proper medication for my shit but no psychs will see me cos no one wants to take on a cluster b person w ptsd :^)

i just remembered the noodle game oh my god so when i was in first grade our school (which was about 150-200 students) played this game where we had string necklaces and when somebody was nice to you or you thought they were being nice to somebody else you could take an uncooked noodle from a jar on any teacher’s desk and give it to them to string on their necklace. we played this for a week and by the end of it some kids had so many noodles that they had to carry plastic bags filled with noodles around with them all day. i genuinely tried all week to be nice to everybody and in elementary school i was literally known as “the nice one” but somehow i only ended up with 2 noodles and both were given to me by the principal
