here’s some tasty discourse that no one else has mentioned but i think should be brought up:
next to the obvious problem of casting fl*riana l*ma as maggie sawyer, it’s not even brought into account that in the comics maggie is a butch. she’s got short hair and wears gay ass pant suits
(in bombshells they made her femme which is in and of itself Offensive bc prior to that publication she is always seen as butch. like as if there weren’t butches in the 40s ??? tf)
but i just feel like supergirl REALLY LET US DOWN not just bc they said maggie sawyer would be latina and she’s not, but bc maggie is one of the few butch lesbian characters in media and still we get some sweet long-haired lesbians played by straight women bc it’ll make the straighties who watch the show feel less threatened
and i mean even tho i think they’ve done great with alex and are stamping down homophobic stereotypes i still feel extremely underrepresented as a butch
when will i see a beautiful butch on screen ??? when will i get to see myself ???
