an ancient and terrible curse.
I do find it funny that lesbians are perceived as man-hating but gay men are not perceived as woman-hating, and in fact are often illogically shielded from accusations of misogyny simply by being gay
weird it’s like male privilege works even when queerness is involved who knew
ja ja ja ja ja
a spanish person laughing or a german person during sex???
Finnish person struggling to remember what they were about to say next
polish person trying to get themself noticed

I don’t share your faith in these people being nice really when you get to know them.

alright listen up ya ding dongs cause im gonna lay it down
the reason queer people project onto characters, making them trans or queer themselves in their interpretations??? It’s because
we are not
And when we are, 95% of the time it’s a horrible stereotype or as a written off one liner, which might as well not be there for all the good it does.
Us projecting onto these characters and making them relateable to ourselves has nothing to do with anything except making feel more comfortable or accepted within the small spaces we create for ourselves in fandom.
You have the canon, because chances are that character WAS written as straight or cis. So like, writing a huge essay to explain WHY A CHARACTER CAN’T POSSIBLY BE TRANS OR QUEER IN ANYWAY is just you enforcing what we already know and what we already are told every day of our lives. That we don’t exist, that we have to prove what and who we are.
You’re not telling us anything new. SO us??? deciding to say a character is queer, ESPECIALLY if that character has a narrative related to queerness but has been cishet-ified by cishet writers, literally has no harm on anyone. at all. You don’t need to have everything, so let us have this.
Jensen really enjoyed the purgatory storyline and I’m laughing cause like that entire storyline was just Dean trying to find his angel…
