I’d like to take back my last Cecil/Earl dot day comic in place of this one that has a better ending for everyone.
They both are children in this. Just making it clear because I tend to always make Earl look underage
The Women of Series 3
Oh hey look another white actor. Because Sherlock BBC sure was lacking those.
Everybody is all like “Surprise, bitch!” but I’m still like “SURPRISE, MOTHERFUCKER”
NOT ALL AUSTRALIANS:

- Can magically surf
- Say G’Day Mate

WELCOME TO DERSE/PROSPIT *derse dreamers/prospit dreamers playing in the background*
because night vale = derse and desert bluffs = prospit, obviously.
this has probably been made, but hurrr whatever. so here you go. a homestuck/wtnv crossover.
And suddenly I’m terrified of Prospit. (Yet it prompts so many cool theories).
Not having a single LGBTQIAP+ character of any kind is a FLAW. It is unrealistic and harmful in our heteronormative culture.
although how can you tell if a piece of media is flawed? they may not be focusing on the LGBT part of the character.
take for instance dumbledore. gay, but it was not his main trait, he was a wise old man first and foremost with his sexuality practically nonexistant in the books because harry did not need to know that.
or said charicter may not understand they are gay just yet
so dont judge a story based on a silly little thing like that.
if the story is good and the charicters fit well in it then guess what.
like RL their sexuality does not matter if you are not the one they are fucking.
they are still human, they have desires outside of getting laid.
You make me want to flip a table.
First of all: Dumbledore is HORRIFICALLY BAD “representation.” His storyline is deeply problematic and the way that his “outing” was handled was cheap and borderline insulting.
Minority representation MATTERS. Visibility in media MATTERS. Having LGBTQIAP+ characters in media MATTERS.
A narrative portraying a world in which there are no LGBTQIAP+ characters, where none are visible at all, is inherently problematic and flawed.
Buckle your seat belts, kids. Emeline is going on a rant.
"so dont judge a story based on a silly little thing like that."
Don’t judge a story based on a silly thing like that.
Based on a silly thing like that.
A SILLY THING LIKE THAT
Did you just? Did you just say that someone’s sexuality or gender identity is a “silly thing?” Like it’s something trivial, like— oh, I really enjoy cheese doodles, and also I’m *whichever queer identity*, NOT THAT IT MATTERS.
Yes, yes, yes, one day it shouldn’t matter.But news flash. It is not that day.
In the meantime,REPRESENTATION OF QUEER PEOPLE MATTERS. The only people who say “a character’s sexuality/gender identity isn’t important and we don’t need to even mention it in the slightest” are THE PEOPLE WHOSE SEXUALITY AND/OR GENDER IDENTITY IS NEVER ERASED, MARGINALIZED, OR MOCKED BY THE MEDIA.
Since you used Dumbledore as an example, I’m going to throw out a few of my own.
Harry Potter. He’s the boy who lived. He’s the chosen one. He’s a brave young boy who has to defeat Voldemort. He’s those things first and foremost. Being straight is not his main trait.
And yet we know that. We get to hear all about his crushes on Cho and Ginny and we get to see him going on dates and going to the Yule Ball.
Hermione Granger. Brightest witch of her age. Being straight is not her main trait. But it’s there in abundance and we get to see it a plenty.
Same with Ron. Same with, oh, I don’t know, nearly every character in the books.
Let’s talk about more minor characters. Viktor Krum. Cedric Diggory. Lavender Brown. Hannah Abbott. Angelina Johnson. Romilda Vane. Penelope Clearwater. Roger Davies. Michael Corner.
Michael Corner, right? I know jack shit about Michael Corner— except that he’s a Ravenclaw and he dated Ginny and BECAUSE WE LIVE IN A HETERONORMATIVE, CISNORMATIVE SOCIETY, that means that without EXPLICIT EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY, Michael Corner will be read as a heterosexual, cisgender man.
Nearly every single character— from the biggest, down to the lovely people in the middle (Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape, ALL OF THE HETEROSEXUAL MARRIED PEOPLE, and so forth), down to the students whose names we only know in passing— have mentions made to their various heterosexual storylines. Is being straight one of their main characteristics? No. But we still get to know that information.
All I’m saying is that it is some ultra-bullshit to say that we shouldn’t know anything about a queer character’s identity unless it is absolutely, 1000000% necessary to the narrative. Because we get to know about the heterosexuality of basically everybody, and that’s seldom necessary.
I had to think about this for a hard moment (which I found a bit scary in reterospect) but I’m going to agree with OP here.
It doesn’t need to be the main character (but that would be effing nice for once) but when you write a piece of media you include an entire WORLD of people. If not a single one of those people is queer then [i]something has gone wrong[/i].
TW: Bigotry re: queer folks
Reblogging because i am getting really tired of trying to keep up with all the fucking letters there… LGBTQIAP+…. There is a damn plus sign there. Can we just start typing out the whole alphabet and coming up with weird words to describe people who absolutely insist to be identified as individual groups, different from the rest of society, and at the same time demand to be equal to the rest of society. Well as much as I want you all to have true equality, i am not going to follow these retarded titles you give yourselves. Get off your high horse and be gay or straight or lesbian or quasi-whatever. Just please stop the hypocrisy.
You refusing to respect and accept people’s identities only reflects poorly on you. People are under no obligation to try to fit their existence into the arbitrary boxes that you feel comfortable with.
Also, nice ableist slur there. Classy, asshole.
GSM = Gender and Sexuality Minority.
QUILTBAG = Queer/Questioning, Undecided, Intersex, Lesbian, Transgender/Transsexual, Bisexual, Allied/Asexual, Gay/Genderqueer
Also a simple ‘queer’ works wonders, I find.
Lets all take a minute and realize the lack of creativity in the name “fire place”.
my friend left her window open in her bedroom and came back to find this
look at his self-satisfied little face, the cheeky shit
if there was a post to describe australia, this is it
you mean to tell me this isn’t even a pet bird?
that in australia, you have wild birds that just fly from house to house with the express purpose of fucking shit up?
fucking HELL australia, what is wrong with you?
wake up australia
That’s what birds do
They fly around and fuck shit up
Do you have some kind of mysterious nice birds in your weird foreign country
Do birds in America and England fly into your house and make the bed and tidy up the living room a little bit
It’s cold here, so they just bounce off the windows and lie there and twitch spasmodically while you look for the shovel.
Basically hurling themselves at windows is the worst thing birds do
yeah man a kookaburra literally flew into a classroom at my high school and just sat his smug ass down on top of the desk for a good 20 minutes
why has nobody mentioned the fact that in australia there are 3-4 months a year where everybody just accepts that they’re going to get attacked by magpies. It is literally called “swooping season” and these birds will fly down to peck your fucking face, and people get their eyes ripped out and shit, it’s fucking brutal.
My teacher had to go to hospital and have surgery because of swooping season. It was in the parking lot of school and all the kids would do a mad dash towards the car as the magpies tried to kill us.
no but when you’re 12 years old and riding your bike like mad on the way home from school with an icecream bucket on your head with like branches and shit sticking out if it to scare them off and none of this is considered strange
what the actual fuck australia
in class i’m used to sitting in the back and making all these smartass comments under my breath
now i’m in the front though so when our attractive instructor drops something and says ‘ah, fuck me!’ and i say ‘maybe later’ he hEARS ME AND LAUGHS GODFUCKING FUCK
the saga continues today in physics when our instructor asks ‘and how fast does light travel?’ and i whisper ‘hella’ and the kid next to me fucking loses it
THE BEST COOKIE RECIPES :D
