“Because it’s Disney” is still my least favorite excuse i hear as to why tomco can’t happen.
(( It’s right next to “I don’t want them to have a strong connection like “Star and Marco do”, because considering how important Marco is to Tom’s character and well-being, that feels a bit insulting to say he should never an extremely close relationship to the one person in his life that cares about his well-being and actually makes him feel validated.))
That is not an excuse anymore.
I know it’s one thing to make background gay characters kiss then to make main gay characters kiss.
But Disney has stepped into this LGBT pool, and it’s not backing out anytime soon.
If they want to do it, the crew will push for it to actually happen.
Using that line as a shield to say the crew couldn’t make it happen needs to be thrown out because at this point many different things could happen on this show.
This show has broken many tropes before, and it can continue to do so.
Canon LGBT couples are much more common on cartoons these days.
And if you tell me it can’t happen because all the other LGBT cartoon couples on tv aren’t between main characters: *Cough* Korra//sami *Cough* Bubb//line *Cough * Rup//phire
And besides, something cool bout disney? They got a gay kiss on the lips, that’s something i’ve never seen done on any of these other shows yet despite having LGBT couples.
That’s a pretty darn good step into going even further with future LGBT work.
We got 2 or more seasons with this show, you never know where they might be going with tom and marco.
After all, the crew is clearly aware of this ship being well-liked and popular.
If you ever try to argue tomco against me, you better have have a very good argument then simply saying “Because it’s Disney”.
Because that’s not an excuse.
And it needs to stop be treated as one at this point.
