Reblog if you think plus sized actors should be able to play characters other than the token fat friend, the chubby kid/adult everyone makes fun of, or literally any role that is centered around their weight.
It’s so discouraging as a bigger girl who wants to become an actress that plus sized actors are never cast as important parts or as love interests or anything except comedic relief based on our looks. We need more representation and I hope y’all agree with me.
“It’s awesome to see a black gay woman who is just casually queer and no one cares. I’m super upset she’s not going to be in Season 11 though, because of course that’s what happens.”
4. Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) and Maggie Sawyer (Floriana Lima) in Supergirl
“These characters give me that sense of representation I have been looking for since I came out. Both women hold high-power and important jobs and respect and encourage each other through them. They are the only reason I religiously keep up with the show.”
8. Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) in Legends of Tommorrow
“Sara Lance is absolutely, without a doubt, my icon. She is one of the most badass characters on Arrow / Legends of Tomorrow and she’s had relationships with both men and women, making her the only bisexual hero out there (that I know of at least).”
11. Yorkie (Mackenzie Davis) and Kelly (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) in the “San Junipero” episode ofBlack Mirror
“Sometimes I feel I’ll never be able to date a girl because of my shyness towards my identity, but seeing Yorkie in a loving relationship really helped me out.”
13. Waverly Earp (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) and Nicole Haught (Katherine Barrell) in Wynonna Earp
“They’re a power couple in such an underrated show that needs to be more recognised. Their relationship is so beautiful and powerful, yet their adorableness doesn’t take away from the fact that they’re both badasses! This show is one of the very few shows that doesn’t queer-bait its audience either.”
16. Nomi Marks (Jamie Clayton) inSense8
“She is the first and only trans character I’ve seen whose plotline and character development had nothing to do with being transgender, instead focusing on her relationship with Amanita and her abilities as a hacker.”
25. And Buffy the Vampire Slayer’sWillow (Alyson Hannigan)
“It felt amazing for teenage me to see a lesbian on TV be characterised not by her orientation but by everything else about her: her nerdiness, her ridiculous fuzzy sweaters, her quirky way of speaking, her growth from a shy and timid wallflower to a confident and powerful witch. I loved that her relationships with her friends were emphasised just as much as her relationships with her girlfriend
I know people talk about Aries moons like they’re explosive and angry children, but honestly I think they’re one of the most vulnerable moon signs. I think they are truly just sensitive and have trouble dealing with that sensitivity. I think what Aries moons need is someone to protect them a little. They will absolutely NEVER accept protection if you’re obvious about it and coddle them, but I think they do need a helping hand when it comes to dealing with the rawness of their emotions.
