Want to be part of my University project?

I know this is an unusual post for me to make on here but it’s sort of relevant to Star Wars so hear me out before you unfollow haha

I’m putting a fanzine and blog together for a Uni project. It’s all about women in fandom and female representation in movies, TV, games, comics etc.

So here’s where you (fellow fans!) come in…

A large part of the project is about shining the spotlight on our favourite female characters. So I’m asking for people to send in their fanart, meta, cosplay pics…maybe even fanfic? Anything that celebrates their fave, really! 

This is open to all fandoms, not just Star Wars and your work could get printed! (with proper credit, of course)

If you have something or just want to know more, message me on here or email me at:

starwarsvillains@outlook.com

I’d really appreciate it if anyone got in touch. Thanks!

P.S. Sorry for not being very active on here recently, it’s my final year and I’m super busy. I’ll be back to normal again by the summer. Thanks for sticking around xx

If you seriously feel threatened or upset when lesbians (and wlw in general) headcanon a female character whose sexuality has not been confirmed in canon as sapphic, then I hate to break it to you, but you’re kind of disgusting.

First of all, sapphic women are not bad people for wanting some representation in media, be it tv shows, movies or video games. We’re starved for good and positive represantion, since most sapphic characters end up dead nowadays.

When wlw have headcanons about their favourite characters being like them, they do not dictate to other people. They do not say “my way or the highway”. More often than not, it’s other people who do that. 

People are so repulsed by the idea of a character being sapphic and especially a lesbian. And that is because if a character is a lesbian, they are not available to men. 

They make excuses saying “But she could be bi/pan!” Yes, she could. But why, why is it so important to you that some part of that character is available to men? 

Let’s not get confused. These people do not give a rat’s ass about representation. They just want to seem superior by saying “Oh, no one thinks about bi/pan people but I do!” 

This desire to one-up lesbian fans who specifically headcanon a character as lesbian stems from wanting to ship that character with a man. That’s the essence of it.

Let’s not kid ourselves here. Even if those people say they want a female character to be bi/pan, they do it so they can ship them with a man without getting any backlash, because calling them out would make you biphobic/panphobic. 

Biphobia/panphobia stems from homophobia. What I mean is, we know m/f are widely accepted, because we live in a heteronormative world, etc. These people are not willing to accept or embrace the same gender attraction bi/pan people experience.

And I’ve seen some people say it’s unfair that those “evil lesbians” try to make everything a political statement. That implies you believe a sapphic person’s very existence is a political statement, which is outrageous. 

We exist. Most don’t like it. Some tolerate it. Few accept it. And let there be no confusion. Tolerance and acceptance are by no means synonymous.

“But you’re taking away representation from, oh, I don’t know, aro/ace people!” you say.

And I could say you sound like a MOGAI, which is by no means a compliment, but we are trying to have a civilized discussion here. I think.

As a lesbian, I’m going to talk about lesbians. Aro/ace people exist, yes, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be lesbians as well. This may make no sense to you, but there’s a reason why it doesn’t.

Lesbians are hypervisible, highly sexualized and fetishized. Hell, our sexuality is a porn category that almost exclusively caters to the male gaze. Therefore, in a lot of people’s minds, lesbians cannot exist outside of a bedroom, outside the act of sex. 

Asexuals, on the other hand, can. Asexuality is a spectrum, of course, I know that. But, let’s keep things simple for the sake of this argument.

As I said, for a lot of people it works a little like this:

Lesbians = sex

Asexuals = no sex

This is overly simplistic and does not take into account the existence of asexual lesbians. They do exist. People have a hard time realising that because they can’t separate lesbians from the concept of sex. They think lesbians to be sexual “by nature” (yikes) and cannot be “pure” like asexuals (yikes again).

Demonizing lesbians and sapphic people in general, purely based on the fact they experience same gender attraction is… well, it’s not news and it comes as no surprise. But it hurts people. Sapphic headcanons harm no one. Your homophobic/lesbophobic arguments are tired, trite and void of any real meaning. 

You will not silence us.
