no one else is like that

that post with people discussing queerbaiting - i rly wish faranda would take off but couples aside, it would just be really amazing if any character could show interest in the same sex ? without having to justify anything ? just like todd has been showing interest towards women ? like it would mean The World to me to see a queer character on this kind of show, and i really don't think it would impact whatever story max wants to tell in any way

I totally agree; while we definitely need more cannon relationships, writers also gotta start showing other orientations without it being a huge thing or plot point. AKA start actually normalizing them, not tokenizing. And honestly, it’s so easy. Have someone make an offhand comment that’s not made into a joke, or casually mention a past relationship without any other characters batting an eye. Literally all it takes is one or two lines, and it doesn’t have to have any story relevance whatsoever. Just mention it! And there’s representation! Ta da!

Anyway, I’m hoping Max will at least give us something. (Please, for the love of the Great Green Arkleseizure, Max, give us something.) 

Thanks for the ask, anon! Happy Towel Day! :)

Oh, ew.  It just occurred to me how deep this well of projection and control runs for these people.

Think about the way they bastardize characters to more closely resemble either themselves, or their ideals (male characters are often made hyper-feminine, and physically fit characters given huskier body types).  Mind you, this wouldn’t be a concern if it wasn’t so prevalent, consistently similar across multiple artists, and so eerily deliberate (as well as constantly in complete disregard for maintaining anything signalling the character’s identity).

What these people seem to truly want is someone that they can completely bend to their will.  That’s why cartoon characters are so appealing to them, and why they’re quick to disregard canon if it doesn’t coincide with their little fantasy world.  Shipping disturbs them because they feel that either they’re being shipped (due to projecting themselves onto characters), or that they’re being rejected by those characters.

This is becoming psychologically fascinating and disturbing all at the same time.  I wish I’d been able to continue pursuing forensic psychology…
