Hey everyone, so if you don’t know what’s going on: yesterday, footage from Marvel’s Black Panther was released showing the romantic f/f relationship between Okoye/Ayo, characters from the comics the movie will be using as inspiration for the story.
Of course, many fans were overjoyed to hear this, as we have been waiting for lgbt+ representation in MCU for a long time. However, Marvel has since retracted this, and released a statement saying that the relationship between these two women will not be depicted romantically:
This is more than disappointing to many, many people. We were teased with the possibility of representation, only to have it taken away from us. It’s long past the time for Marvel to step up and start telling more diverse stories, and we are tired of waiting.
What can you do to help? Please, please, spare a moment to reach out to Marvel, their producers, representatives, etc etc, on twitter, using the hashtag #LetAyoHaveAGirlfriend. Social media is such an amazing tool and we can use it to make our voices be heard, and maybe make a change. I think it’s really important for us to try.
Please take a moment to signal boost this post as well… the more awareness spread the better! It would mean the world to myself and so many Marvel fans if we were to have a canon, lgbt female character in the MCU.
I think it’s important to recognize that they first made Pietro and Wanda Nazis. In Age Of Ultron, they made Wanda and Pietro willingly work and subject themselves to experimentation by Nazis (Hydra). They are originally Jewish characters as well as Rromani, which is a HUGE IMPACTOR on their experiences growing up.
Then they erased Wanda’s Jewishness entirely by putting a cross in her room in CA:CW.
Yes it is important to recognize the wrongness of making Captain America a Nazi. And it’s way, WAY more important to recognize the absolutely TERRIBLE and UGLY way they’re making Magneto work with Nazis.
But it’s also important to realize that by doing what they did to Pietro and Wanda, that kicked off what’s happening.

It’s been 6 marvel movies and 10 years and there’s still people out there who thinks that Tony Stark is just a narcissist addicted to fun and partying with no sense of responsabilty or deep feelings and I’m still laughing
