So the Indian Supreme Court passed a judgement today which basically states that freedom of sexual orientation is now a fundamental right in the country. And any discrimination on basis of sexual orientation will now be taken as unconstitutional and against the law.
This from a country where homosexuality was illegal till date. Like, today I am literally shook™ but so, so proud of India.
Y'all realize you can dislike something/someone just cause it doesn’t vibe with you, right? Like doing 726382847282377 hours of research to make things look problematic and telling other people that they’re bad for liking it isn’t necessary at all
OH MY GOD HOW DARE EVAN PETERS PLAY A TRUMP SUPPORTER HE IS THE WORST OH MY GOD I HATE AMERICAN HORROR STORY SO MUCH
[When it came to Tate Langdon, a mass school shooter who also murdered several other people as a ghost, raped a woman, lit a man on fire, sodomized a gay man with a fireplace poker, and dropped several homophobia slurs against the gay ghosts in the house.] OH MY GOD HE'S SUCH A SWEET MISUNDERSTOOD ROMANTIC SOUL I WANT TO BE VIOLET SO MUUUUUCH EVAN PETERS IS MY BABYYYY
idk if this is one of my adhd or autism things or both but yall ever get a song stuck in ur head and it’s just one specific part looping and looping and looping and looping & u want to fucking BASH UR HEAD AGAINST THE WALL!!!! BCS MOOD!!!
dave strider realizing hes gay/bisexual and coming to terms with his abusive childhood makes him so much more of a character than he was as the token “main character’s best friend who is cagey, funny, and a dick”
fandom often headcanons or reads labels/experiences like these onto lots of mediocre, kinda funny, and assholish dude characters – but dave is the real deal. dave strider expressed softness and kindness and introspection in canon in a way that was not corny or forced, and most importantly did not come at the expense of women (i would argue he was 100% more of a stepping stone for terezi’s arc than vice versa) and for that i appreciate him a lot
despite all of andrew hussie’s flaws and questionable/problematic/bad writing, he did a good thing by bringing dave strider into text. he did even more good by allowing his character to have depth in a way that is uncommon for boy characters.
homestuck broke so many molds (at least from my fandom experience) by having a super likable male character who was funny, witty, and complex… AND a gay/bi self-admitted survivor of abuse.
Hyperfixating on one white male character because you’re thirsty and trying to shoehorn him into literally everything at the expense of the overall narrative and Characters of Color who are the ACTUAL MAIN CHARACTERS.
Also known as ‘The Bucky Barnes Blight’.
If a fandom you know has been afflicted with this illness, destroy it.
