Trans activists in Mexico City, protesting violence against the LGBTQ community.
stand up for girls and women who don’t like to read. stand up for girls and women who can’t read. stand up for girls and women with low IQs. stand up for girls and women who can’t write. stand up for girls and women whose access to education has been prevented. for those with learning disorders. for those who mix up “your” and “you’re” because it’s not that big a fucking deal tumblr. stand up for women who are called ableist slurs for these things and stop implying that the only way to be a feminist icon is by being an intellectual.

I find myself cringing when his onscreen conquests say things like “he did this thing to my ass that made my eyes water.”
What, did he stick an onion up there or something?
I know many people love the series and I’m probably going to get a lot of pushback on this. I’m not trying to say my gut reaction is the right one. The purpose of this post is just to be honest about it, maybe work out what’s causing my “eww” reaction– and also ask if any of our readers are having a similar response.
Well glad to see you recognize you own internalized homophobia, for me it all sounds as a cry to be accepted, down play gay characters and de sexualize them so they are loved and accepted and our community doesn’t get criticized because this two characters. That’s at least what I got from this piece, that TBH could have been published in a personal blog, not as an article for this one, in my opinion.
But in a show like HTGAWM that not only is starting and establishing characters, traits and personalities, but also has shown us enough of the them to see that EVERYONE screws up, can be unlikeable, cheat, get things by any mean, kill and be as inhumane as one can be, that a gay sex scene treated as ANY other sex scene from every recent series is just laughable, for me at least.
When people think that showing a guy having sex because he has an agenda is worse than showing 4 people burning a body so they get rid of their DNA and protecting a murderer (that’s what it appears to be) then we know that the road ahead is still a long one.
And on another note, were you as uncomfortable when they showed Michaela riding her boyfriend and then having an orgasm on screen? Or when she threatened to destroy him and his life if he ever made her look bad if he was caught or came out as Gay after they were married? No? Well….
I’m tired of shying away from sex between guys like it’s something to be ashamed of, I am tired of Gay characters that are barely there or used in only some kind of release, comic or dramatic. I am tired of hiding we LGBTQA have sexualities, varied as they are, that we are just there to complement lives and story lines.
A new Show always introduces a very raw material for their characters, because a Show intends to grow the character in front of the Viewer so they sympathize, so they can get a connection with it and identify with their arc and I have no doubts that this is the way they’re doing it in HTGAWM. Even more, the apparent format of the show is to showcase a Character with each episode in different ways.
Seeing as The Backlot has praised shows with barely there LGBTQA characters and stories that only work for to advance and grow the Heterosexual ones this is a nice breath of fresh air and I feel like this kind of articles makes it harder to see the true representation that we are getting, as minimal as only this show (HTGAWM) doing it.
What the heck, thebacklot? No, seriously.
God bless drag queens.
