I don't think they're homophobic. It's just that it's not the way they want they're show to go. Like... they've spent time building this up since season 2. It's not like captain swan is random. They just don't want the hype For swan queen building up
… i’ve decided that instead of lashing out at you i’m gonna try to educate you, because i have a few cs friends that had no idea The Hug actually made the sq fandom feel even worse.
first of all, i never mentioned cs so? i don’t know where you’re trying to go with that. they might’ve been trying to build it up since s2 but swan queen has existed since s1 and we only got a HUG 5 seasons later. they cut a hug that both actresses thought was great for the moment, and instead they gave us a hug that was about a heterosexual ship. i’m literally not shitting on cs i’m just stating a fact.
second of all, how can they not be a little bit homophobic? are you even in the fandom or are you just general audience? we only got support from the actors/writers like 4 seasons in. they didn’t even want to UTTER the words swan queen before. the actors literally couldn’t even keep a straight face when a fan asked about swan queen. lana was one of the only people on that stage that was able to control herself.
you’re trying to tell me that the same people that wrote the ruby x dorothy romance aren’t homophobic? even when they said it would pass every test there was? are you actually serious? this show has NO queer ships. ZERO. and the only wlw romance we got is in no way tied to the plot - that’s why they were forgotten ONE EPISODE LATER. this is the same show that makes (inoffensive) gay jokes even when they don’t have any rep. how is this healthy? this is the same show that goes on and on about the bromance between 2 male characters and still??? NO REP. how is it not homophobic to tweet a fan about the swan queen hug and deleting that tweet when that promo comes out? do you even know that the writers purposefully deleted a much better thought out hug and decided to give us something that lasted less than 3 seconds? are you…. actually serious?
i know some fans are nasty as hell, trust me i know, but literally all some of us ask for is non romantic sq scenes. we just want emma and regina on the same frame. they don’t even have to speak to each other. all sq fans get are crumbs and that’s what we’ve been getting for a long time. ya’ll say we keep asking for stuff even when we get them but some people are preaching for more cs promotion even when ya’ll are getting a mf wedding lmao all we wanted was a FRIENDLY, sentimental hug - something that wasn’t about a het ship. that’s all we asked for. please let us have a tweet from adam supporting us. please let us have at least one actress supporting our ship. this is not pie!! you’re not losing a slice of anything. just bc we get support once in a blue moon, doesn’t mean the writers suddenly hate your ship and you’ll never get what you want.
lastly, we’re all grownups. we know sq is never going to happen and we don’t need people telling us that 24/7. we don’t need “protecting”. when did ya’ll ever truly care about whether or not we’re being led on? don’t think you’re trying to help because you’re literally not, you’re not telling us something that we’ve never heard before. i’ve heard anti sq people tell me that it was never gonna happen ever since i joined the fandom.
if they choose not to give sq screentime bc they think they’ll be leading us on, that’s nasty as hell. just flat out tell us sq is never gonna happen and we’ll never see ruby x dorothy again. we’ll leave. i PROMISE you that.
we’ve had actors from the cast say nasty stuff to us as well, like that the only reason why we’re angry at the fact that oq is canon is bc the actor gets to kiss lana and that upsets lesbians. yes, sean literally said this. we’ve had that ugly ass dwarf dude flat out tell us that the whole cast never liked us which resulted in jmo getting angry as hell. we’ve had ginny saying that emma and regina will never kiss bc this is not “once upon a time down my pants” when het ships literally dry hump each other on screen and no one ever says anything. this is going to sound sentimental as hell but we’re used to being treated like this since day one my dude.
we have every right to be angry. we never asked to be queerbaited (even with ruby x dorothy). we never asked to be bullied by the cast. if some of ya’ll like to say “not all csers” then say the same about sqers. never make an exception of yourself. don’t be mean…. all we wanted was a hug. that’s… literally all we wanted
