ITS SO UNFAIR WHEN YOU LOVE SINGING BUT YOU WERENT BORN WITH A GOOD VOICE
25+ year old “anti-sjw” people are the fucking creepiest they’re like “teenagers trying to be kinder and less oppressive towards each other??? not on MY watch, i’m going to harass someone much younger than me because i’m an adult and this is the REAL WORLD”
i know no one tagged me but like still
Drawing on People part two!
Can you hear my Sonic Lesbian Fangirl Scream? (It’s my superpower.)
So I want to talk about this a little bit, because there are SO MANY LEVELS on which I love this.
Here we have a character who is confirming her queer identity without “coming out” because to her it isn’t odd or different. To her, kissing boys is odd and different. Kissing boys is a “phase” and having kissed a boy now makes her a stereotype.
America isn’t coming out to her friends, she’s having a chat about how she experimented once and it wasn’t for her. That’s it. This isn’t a coming out, although it is a confirmation of her sexual identity.
And it flips the common trope/stereotype of “I kissed a girl” on its head, quite literally. Which is funny and valuable in it’s own right, but you know why I really love it? Because this is a story that frequently happens to lesbians. We hear constantly about how straight girls kiss girls as experimentation, but we never hear that lesbian girls often do the same. I did. I had a “boyfriend” in middle school who I kissed once (we then promptly broke up. Guess who’s got a lovely husband now?) and when I was a freshman in high school I hooked up with a very sweet senior for a couple months. And yes, we kissed. I was so unbelievably not into it. And I didn’t even figure out I was gay for another 6 years. But this shit happens to lesbians. We try boys, because everyone says we should, but we don’t TALK ABOUT IT because our sexuality is constantly under attack. Lesbianism is always accused of being a phase, nevermind that for some lesbians the exact opposite is the case.
And that is why I love this single panel. And it’s why you should all still be able to hear my Sonic Lesbian Fangirl Scream, regardless of where you live.
Jules is pleased.
i encourage everyone to read young avengers and read anything with america chaavez and her relationship with kate bishop in particular is awesome. also, lesbian moms.
