If you really believe that representation doesn’t matter, then why the fuck are you threatened by it? If not seeing yourself depicted in stories has no negative psychological impact - if the breakdown of who we see on screen has no bearing on wider social issues - then what would it matter if nine stories out of ten were suddenly all about queer brown women? No big, right? It wouldn’t change anything important; just a few superficial details. Because YOU can identify with ANYONE.

So I guess the problem is that you just don’t want to. Because deep down, you think it’ll make stories worse. And why is that? Oh, yeah: because it means they wouldn’t all be about YOU.



I just really want more bisexual representation

I wish spn would stop queer baiting and just make dean canonically bisexual already

I wish oitnb would stop saying that piper was straight but now she’s gay and instead openly acknowledge the fact that she’s bisexual

I wish Steve Rogers would be written in the next movies as bisexual like the fandom has clearly adapted

I wish bisexuality could stop being erased

I want more representation

am i the only one who thinks dany/ drogo being romanticized of is really really gross? before i read the books & watched season one i thought they were going to be an epic amazing love story (lol) and i know pretty much every relationship on game of thrones is problematic as hell but... something about it makes me super uncomfortable? on the show drogo rapes dany on their wedding night (i mean i’d argue no 13 year can contest to sex and dany is being ‘traded’ to drogo) idk i just don’t like it??

in the books dany is raped by drogo as well, both on her wedding night and multiple times after that. i’m sick of people acting like he didn’t. yes, on their wedding night he does wait for her to say yes before initiating it, but don’t forget that a.) she was 13 b.) she had been sold to him c.)  she had no way of saying no

so yes i definitely agree with you. i’m sick of people romanticising their relationship and acting like it’s an epic love story just because of the ‘my sun and stars/moon of my life’ nicknames

  • male character being a little shit: can't you see the complexity of his psyche? can't you just UNDERSTAND how much of a flawlessly flawed human being he is? or even, can't you see all the trauma and pressure he's been exposed to? every rose has their thorns, and those thorns can be incredibly beautiful
  • female character being a little shit: OMG THAT USELESS FUCKING BITCH DARED HURTING MY CUTIE PIE???? she must die lol such a flat character with no serious motives other than being a fucking bitch and breathing the oxygen of my lovelies
