About the bi cap thing: I'm not even into the fandom, but sometimes I see posts like "yeah these comic characters are cool but WE NEED POPULAR ON-SCREEN HEROES BC THEY'RE BETTER REPRESENTATION". And, like, I get the whole point of rep is visibility, but... why not make petitions and hashtags and campaigns to see already-canon lgbt heroes (and their canon partners, ofc) in movies and tv series and things like that, then? Why not make fanworks and initiatives? Why not try to *make* them popular?
beats me, because it’s too complicated and requires effort and actually reading things that aren’t famous
I mean, I haven’t seen tumblr break in joy because rictor (ie half of my canon m/m marvel comics otp) was in the last wolverine movie when they should have because THERE’S A CANON GAY CHARACTER WHO MADE IT ON SCREEN, but are you even surprised? I’m not. this is all the worst kind of armchair activism and I already seen enough of that shit in asoiaf when everyone is like POPULAR CHARACTER X SHOULD BE GAY OR BE BC THERE’S NO CANON GAY POV CHARACTERS and I’m like okay I dreamed joncon once upon a time then -__-
