"if you feminists want equality does that mean you think it’s cool if men hit women?" how about 1 in 3 women experience domestic violence you giant dookie. how about men already do hit women. how about domestic violence is the no.1 cause of injury to women between ages 15 & 44. how about i switch your apple juice with piss. how about that.
on the one hand: ugh queer villains. characters who fit into their creators’ reductive ideas of what queer people can be and get villainized for trying to survive in a world that wants to deny their existence.
on the other hand: QUEER VILLAINS. queer characters who don’t give a shit! queer characters who will do anything to survive! queer characters who challenge the social order!
On the third hand: Queer villains written by queer writers \o/ Queer villains who are a foil to the hero, not to ‘prove’ how totes straight the hero is, but to suggest that the hero might themselves be at least a little queer and not at all ashamed of it \o/ Queer villains whose “mommy issues” turn out to be so completely and utterly justified \o/ Queer villains whose “mommy issues” derive from an episode of abandonment (something that IRL queers face everyday), and not the harmful, stereotypical “overbearing mother(-figure) ‘made’ him queer” trope \o/ Queer villains who are fallen heroes \o/ Queer villains whose queerness is totally incidental to the plot, and has no bearing on anything else in the story \o/ Queer villains who are awesome because villains drive the plot so we get a queer character driving the plot \o/ QUEER VILLAINS WHO SUBVERT QUEER VILLAIN TROPES \o/
Queer villains who just need a hug ;_;
(Queer villains who show you who the covert queerphobes are in fandom as they criticize the villain for not performing their sexuality in a way they deem “acceptable” (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻ )
(Queer villains who show you who the queer fetishists are in fandom as they ignore said queer character because they’re “ugly” (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻ )
