this is completely heterosexual

  • a gay person having fun: this female character who looks butch and has an undercut is gay
  • a heterosexual, completely uninvited: i'm so SICK of tumblr's bullshit. just because a woman has short hair doesn't make her gay. in fact, YOU are the homophobic one for saying so!!!

anonymous asked:

whether or not ace people belong in the lgbt community is situational and not determined on a mass basis

strongly disagree

asexuality is completely different than heterosexuality. it’s the complete lack of sexual attraction. the presumption that “no attraction” defaults to “straight attraction” is heteronormative. saying that a homo-romantic asexual belongs in the lgbt community but a hetero-romantic asexual does not is completely ignoring their asexuality to look at their romantic attraction instead, which just invalidates all asexuals. 

Why Kevin Price Is Not Straight™

ok so i think about this on like a daily basis??? so here are the completely valid reasons that Kevin Price Is Not A Heterosexual

-“nono i’m not having gay thoughts” “alright! it worked!”

-in the workshop you could basically feel the sexual tension between kev and connor during smhd?? there is no Heterosexual Explanation

-idk if it’s canon but there are people talking about the subtext of kevin being gay on the bom tour etc and things like him pretending to make out with connor/getting a boner during smhd give me life tbh

-mcpriceley is basically canon at this point so,,,

-so you know how kev’s hell dream is basically supposed to be a manifestation of everything he feels guilty about?? like there’s coffee, maple donuts, giant arbold heads,, and then there’s connor in a sexy red outfit and giant boa dancing around flirtatiously??? ((and then giving hitler a blowjob uhh)) does kevin feel guilty about having gay thoughts for connor?? yes

-during tomorrow is a latter day kevin and connor keep glancing, smiling, and waving at each other in a very non heterosexual way

-connor grabs only kevin’s hand when leading him and arnold to the room,,

-when kevin is singing about orlando, the stage’s lighting turns pink((another post covered the topic discussing how the color pink in bom represents homosexuality,, hence the pink vests/con’s suitcase etc etc))

-it may just be me looking too much into it but you know after they finish tap dancing for the first time and all the other elders walk off but kevin stands there still standing in a pose but he looks down and is suddenly kinda aware/shocked for some reason?? was it because he didn’t remember putting it on or was it an “oh shit im gay” moment?? ((probably the first one but shhh))

-when connor says “being gay is bad but lying is worse” he turns to kevin on the first one and arnold on the second uhh coincidence i think n o t

-this goes along with one of my earlier points but during the tap scene in turn it off, the lights go very very pink and that seems,, very familiar,,,, cough orlaaandooooo

-you know when kevin goes to sit down next to arnold while the other elders are still tap dancing and arnold puts a pillow in his lap?? yea h…..

-the elder that says “you’re like the smartest best most deserving elder the center’s ever seen” leans in really close to kevin’s face, and my boy kev just looks so unfazed by it???

-just.. the entire workshop tbh…..it’s not even subtext anymore

-during the entirety of joseph smith american moses kevin and connor are talking to each other and making these faces at each other,,, while standing rly close,,, this is Not Straight

in summary kevin price is a gay icon,, this has been a PSA

EDIT: i forgot the classic: when elder price sings “i’m sure you don’t think i’m a flake, because you’ve clearly made a mistake” and the other elders come in with “turn it off”,, what is that supposed to mean?? kevin is asking god why he made him gay uhh yea you can all fight me on this

the gay kiss in svtfoe is like 1 sec long i wish you guys would stop gaslighting people with this being good rep when the entire second season is given over to a completely unnecessary supposedly heterosexual love triangle, because they won't ever canonize marco as a girl. like seriously. pretending this is great rep has consequences, it alienates fans and it tells disney and other corporations they can throw us scraps and that they don't need to try to get our pink dollars. Stop.

Okay.

First of all, I can do whatever I want. Second of all, I can do whatever I want. And third, I can do whatever I want.

Okay? Glad we established that. With that out of the way, I’m gonna be very clear with people like you who keep telling me and other people like what we should want, need and demand. 

Star has done a lot in terms of destroying gender roles and other stereotypes and taboos for kids and young people out there. Its characters are not flat and they have their own personalities, their own lives and agency, which don’t conform to gender norms as they have been force-fed to us by society. Breaking this kind of stereotypes is gonna be so liberating for so many kids. For example:

  • You don’t have to be girly to be a girl (Janna is into a lot of creepy and icky stuff usually considered boyish, just to mention someone)
  • Being feminine doesn’t define your gender (Marco, and I’m gonna get back to you on this)
  • Having trouble managing your anger does not make you a bad person (Tom. who is working so hard to keep it under control and improve because he wants to be better)
  • You can have a bunch of mixed, apparently contradicting traits, and that doesn’t make you less worthy of the gender you identify with (Star is very girly and likes cute stuff but still kicks ass and loves every second of it)
  • Boys can be affectionate with other boys (if we assume, based on what we know at the moment, that Marco identifies as a boy, and again, I’ll get back to you on that), and that’s okay (Marco and Tom, even though I still think the whole Friendenemies episode was very homoerotic)

I’m really grateful for this new wave of cartoons (such as Star vs The Forces of Evil, Gravity Falls or Steven Universe). Different shows are exploring different themes from different angles, and that doesn’t mean that one is necessarily above the other. Star may not be exploring queerness in full (like Steven Universe does, for example), more like touching upon its surface, but it is still playing a role in its normalisation.

Never did I say that the infamous 1-second gay kiss was good rep. For me to call it rep, I would need it to feature at least characters whose names we know. But you know what? I’m okay with it being something in the background and I don’t consider it gaslighting, because as far as I know, the show did not make a big deal out of it, they did not announce “Hey! We are giving you guys gay rep! Look at all the diversity we’re including!”. I actually heard nothing from the show-runners. It was the media that blew up and made a huge deal out of it because of some stupid parents’ reaction. The whole thing was a nice detail that acknowledged the existence of gay people and made an effort to normalise queerness by showing them doing something as mundane as going to a concert with their partners. Period.

And on that note, I want to add that yes, more than this is desirable and it’s okay (it’s very important, actually!) to ask for proper representation. But we can’t close our eyes to the stuff that’s already come our way just because it’s not as much as we wanted it to be. Things take time. Society is still coming to terms with LGBT+ people, and rushing them is only gonna make them clam up and reject any notion of it. Hell, parents wanted to take Star out of Disney XD because they were outraged by a 1-sec cartoon gay kiss! Even though I’m tired of waiting, I see that Disney is treading on thin ice with its more conservative audience and has to carefully plan its every step. And they are still making progress. Slowly, but surely.

We got Beauty and the Beast with gay LeFou (even though I still think it should have been the clock and the candelabra), despite the foreseeable boicot from many people. I’m not saying “we’re good, we can stop demanding stuff from show-runners and movie directors”, I’m saying, “let’s appreciate the progress we’re making while aiming for more”. We’ve come a long way since Disney’s massive no-homo when High School Musical gave a girlfriend to Ryan, literally the gayest man alive in the Disney Universe.

And about the “unnecessary heterosexual love triangle”: I dunno, anon, I’m a storyteller and I saw it coming for a long time. The show built up to that point. It’s not like they pulled it out of their asses. Would I have wanted it to be a love square featuring Tom? Why yes, absolutely, but oh well. It still makes sense in the story they’re telling and it’s integrated in the plot. It would have been weird if Marco, who had been crushing on Jackie since Day 1, had just moved on from her without thinking twice.

Now, about Trans!Marco: I’m gonna be very honest with how I view it, and I’ll also let you know that I’m transgender myself (non-binary pal here, hey, how are ya), as well as a transgender rights activist and lecturer, so I know what I’m talking about. I have nothing against the Trans!Marco fannon, obviously. I think some seed has been planted in the show and as of now, people can make of it what they will. I’d be thrilled and on board if there were any confirmation from TPTB. But I’m not taking it as anymore than that for now, and I’ll entertain both Trans!Marco and Cis!Marco notions. Why?

Yes, Marco has been shown as Princess Marco several times already, pronouns have been changed to feminine and nobody has questioned Marco’s new status during those times. However, Marco hasn’t expressed a particular preference for being treated as a girl (true, no preference for masculine treatment has been expressed either, so we’re kind of in a neutral zone I guess?). I mean, you see Marco wearing dresses and a wig with no complain, as well as being treated as a girl, but after that episode is over, you don’t really see Marco displaying any signs of discomfort with gender identity or pronouns or disphoria or gender expression or anything like that. Actually, the character’s development continues as it was before that happened (anybody else remembers that episode where Marco lives on a different dimension for 16 years and embraces every masculinity trope under the sun?).

Now I’m not saying you have to meet a bunch of requirements to be trans (I’m no trans gatekeeper), but these are the kind of things that usually give it away when we’re talking about someone else’s experience, since we are not inside their head. 

Yes, Marco does possess some traits traditionally associated with femininity (like spending hours getting ready for the date with Jackie), but they’re vague enough that they could mean something or nothing at all (like I said, the show does a lot to destroy gender roles). I feel like I can’t really call it for sure based on that. With how indifferent Marco seems to be to different pronouns, I’d actually say that there’s higher chances this character falls somewhere in the non-binary spectrum, rather than identifying as a girl. This is, of course, my personal opinion, and I might be wrong. But it goes to show that the hinting done in the show has been so subtle for now that it could go either way, and so, I fail to see why we should get angry that Marco isn’t being treated as a girl at the moment.

Just my two cents.

I want shows with long, slow burning ships for two girls or two boys. I want to be able to ship these characters together without it being seen as a joke or a crackship. I want shows to see that two actors have amazing chemistry together and decide to put them together. I don’t want the token gay and lesbian and bi and pan characters anymore. I want to see more than just one transgender character and I want to actually see an asexual or an aromantic character. Just like there are a million different kinds of heterosexual characters there are a million different kinds of LGBTQ+ characters. If a show can make 10 heterosexual characters who are all completely different why can’t they do the same for us?

there’s never been a social link as good as the one you can have with Junpei when playing as FeMC in Persona 3 Portable, where not only does he function as your completely platonic - no shoehorned-in heterosexual romance - companion, but you also help him discover that his class clown/pervy guy/hypermasculine attitude is all a farce he developed as a defense mechanism from his trauma and abuse because he believes he is ultimately worthless on the inside and doesn’t have anything going for him except for fighting monsters. and I wish Persona would do right by their other abuse survivor characters (Ryuji) like they did with Junpei in that game.

Grahn (1984) points out that ‘The earliest poetry signed by an individual in any literature’ is by a lesbian, Enheduanna, who lived in present-day Iraq around 2300 BC. Enheduanna was a priestess and her hymn exalts the omnipotence of the goddess Inanna. Whether or not the poem bears evidence of a transition from ‘matriarchy’ to ‘patriarchy’, Grahn’s inference about its lesbian nature seems just:

Enheduanna’s lushly sensual descriptions of Inanna’s physical beauty, her unbridled love of her fierceness, the complete absence of heterosexual references, and her accounts of Inanna’s undertaking of ceremonial Gay rituals – all make it highly probable that Enheduanna was a Lesbian. That she describes herself a ‘spouse’ of the goddess makes it nearly certain that she was a Lesbian, and expressing a Lesbian office.

— Rictor Norton quoting Judy Grahn in Myth of the Modern Homosexual: Queer History and the Search for Cultural Unity

a rant, aka “why everyone should watch ohshc”

my favorite thing about ouran is the complete lack of heterosexuality in the main cast, like

  • the main character is literally an asexual (and possibly agender) crossdresser raised by a flirtatious transvestite dadmom and everybody just goes with it, like no one ever gives her a hard time about it (except for tamaki but we later found out that he only tries to remind her that she’s a girl because he’s genuinely worried about her) or tries to tell her she needs to change. 
  • and as for the host club members, most if not all of them seem to be pretty laid back and flexible when it comes to sexuality (tamaki definitely was into haruhi even when he thought she was a guy, the twins act gay af half the time, kyoya and tamaki have that weird “mommy and daddy” thing, ect.). 
  • there’s an entire school full of singing lesbians.
  •  gender roles apparently don’t apply either; haruhi is tough and mature and independent and never feels like a damsel in distress.
  • did i mention the transvestite dadmom who NOT ONLY works to support his/her daughter and rocks at being a single parent, but is respected and accepted by haruhi’s friends.
  • that one story arch where kasanoda had a crush on haruhi but thought she was a guy and he just accepted it like “ok i guess i like guys now that’s cool”
  • (in the anime at least) haruhi never has a *sexy* bra and panties shot (she gets walked in on while changing a couple of times but it’s never a fanservice type thing), and remains independent and uninterested despite being surrounded by hot guys 24/7. because, you know, it’s possible to be just friends with someone even if they’re physically attractive. 
  • haruhi and hikaru go on a date and share a couple of romantic moments, but things don’t really work out and they both accept it and stay friends without either of them being bitter or resentful.
  • and none of this is even treated like a big deal? it’s all just accepted as the way things are? 
  •  basically this show is the best. end of story.
