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
"ship whatever you want! don’t hate on people for their ships! of you hate a ship keep it to yourself!" nah fuck that there are some ships i cant stand and i WILL hate you for shipping them
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
when you’re playing a game and you have the option to flirt with/date any gender and it doesn’t force heterosexuality on you ❤❤❤
Hello, my name is Strong Female Character, and my secret power is reaffirming the heterosexuality of the disproportionately male cast.
"Except when I’m black, and then you must keep me 5000000000 feet away from any man. No matter his race. Because I’m a strong independent [black] woman that doesn’t need a man… or some shit."
By far the stupidest criticism of the new Thor is ‘no where in Norse mythology is Thor a woman, stop messing with mythology.’
Right, because Norse mythology is just fucking filled with stories about Thor hanging out with Iron Man and Captain America at the Avengers Tower.
you’re forcing your own identity onto a fictional character!
