"It’s like this… All your life you’re yellow. Then one day you brush up against something blue, the barest touch, and voila, the rest of your life you’re green." - Tess Callahan

coming out to your parents

If you try for one second to tell me the X-Men isn’t an allegory for the gay rights movement, I will smack you. They weren’t even remotely subtle about this.

The mutants have always been an allegory for anyone that didn’t fit in to society. The folks who drew the comics made a point of that early on.

Here’s what you do,

Step 1: Take your allegories. 
Step 2: Shove them so far up your ass that they actually hit your heart and you die. 

Stop championing shows and films and comics and literature that take the struggles of minorities and present them with straight white people in fictional universes so that its easier for the masses to digest.

Bertolt Brecht was a Marxist playwright and poet that championed this movement of presenting society with its ills through fictional narratives but the key ingredient in his theater was the estrangement effect; He would use harsh stage lighting and have characters change tense in order to break the fourth wall to make the audience uncomfortable, so that the moral message wouldn’t be contained within the play. Instead the audience would see the moral, and they would see that within the play just as within society it is a fiction that can be changed. His use of this method meant that in his life he criticized and was forced to flee the Nazis, and he criticized and was forced to stand trial before the McCarthy era communist witch hunt style courts. And now we get these bullshit, neat, clean, happy ending all neat with a bow works of fiction that just take the ills of society and use them as window dressing as a cheap way to add emotional weight to their stories? Fuck that. And people laud these fictions as if they have that Brechtian quality of confronting the audience with truth? Double fuck that.

If the hegemonic powers that caused the oppression that you’re referencing allegorically in your fiction can view your fiction and enjoy it without being forced to reflect on their actions then you have simply co-opted a struggle with no artistic merit. Fuck anyone that says otherwise. 


I had a thought, dear
However scary
About that night
The bugs and the dirt
Why were you digging?
What did you bury
Before those hands pulled me
From the earth?

I will not ask you where you came from
I will not ask you and neither should you

Honey just put your sweet lips on my lips
We could just kiss like real people do

I will defend the right for people to read characters as queer and to write m/m fanfic all day, every day.

But if you (seem to) need to justify erasing or dismissing female characters while doing so, or imply that m/m is the only way that fans can imagine a relationship of…

Probably been said already but there are few fandoms that have even one credible female character, never mind two to ship (afaik, please point me to any that do).

Others have ably risen to the call of providing oh-so-many examples of fandoms with a hefty roster of awesome female characters, which is great! But honestly, I have no time for or interest in proving that any female character or group thereof is credible. Who cares? This is FANDOM. We can write ANY STORY about ANY CHARACTER. Do you know how many characters I’ve read shipped with the Giant Squid? So many. SO. MANY.

I will go into fandoms and raid their fridges for ladies. I will raid their closets for ladies. I will raid their bars, their pep rallies, and their crime scenes for ladies. Maybe that’s not your MO. But please don’t try to claim your disinterest, laziness, or internalized misogyny means the internet has the burden of proof for convincing you that yes, there are fandoms with “credible” female characters out there. You don’t like stories about women? Fine. That’s not about fandom. That’s about you.


You remember and dwell on all the things you’ve lost and ignore all the things you haven’t. Because your scars are like stars. Yet the night stays perfectly black.
