“Be ready for the change. When things feel too easy, when you’ve learned everything one situation can teach, be ready. The change is here. It’s right now. It’s going to wreck everything. and you will be so much better for it.”
jesus christ i was really stuck in mogai hell back in 2015 i just went through old posts and holy shit the level of compulsory heterosexuality i was fighting i can’t believe how far i’ve come and i’ll also never ever forgive the adults who encouraged me to use the split attraction model when i was clearly a minor who was dealing with internalised lesbophobia
So it’s 2016! And we all have equal rights and opportunities of course we do and so liberal, whatever, sure. What a time to be alive! But actually International Queer Heartthrob™ Kate McKinnon was just asked in a Ghostbusters interview about her character’s sexuality and someone off camera very quickly told her that she can’t answer that question. Not LEGALLY ALLOWED to even HINT that a FICTIONAL CHARACTER in a MOVIE… MIGHT NOT BE STRAIGHT. She had to sit there, at this new height of her success, her career breakthrough, and still be told that she’s less than. And that’s…well, heartbreaking. It makes me feel a bit sick. Sony have literally hired a lesbian and then contracted her to not talk lesbian. What kind of big bowl of fuck off is that.
So Sony? You may want to perpetually portray worlds on screen in which we do not exist, but in the real one? Oh, we exist. In fact, thousands of teenage girls across the world have just been Holtzmanned by your film whether you like it or not. FYI that’s a new euphemism for realising you fancy girls. Screw you.
