Was she going to slap you because you never in any way made him gay in the actual books, taking zero risks/doing absolutely nothing for gay characters in literature, and only announcing your “authorial intent” afterwards for a cheap shot at looking like an ~ally~
Gay people are just normal people. We are not told about any of the Hogwarts professors love lives, other than Snape, and it would be completely out of character for Dumbledore to walk around telling everyone about his sexuality.
Did you want her to make him dress in glittery platform boots, a crop top, and decorate his office in rainbow flags to make it more obvious for you? Would that be enough of a stereotype to appease you people? Or what? Please tell me. I’d like to know how you think a gay character is supposed to be portrayed.
And did you miss the Grindelwald chapters in the ‘actual books’? Or was that also not obvious enough for you? Did Dumbledore need to whisper “always” wistfully in order for you to connect that he had romantic feelings for Grindelwald? Maybe you are American and need them to gaze longingly into each others eyes with awkward close ups of their fingers almost grazing each other that Hollywood thinks means ‘true love’.
It didn’t fit into his relationship to Harry to ever say “I’m gay”, and so it was not stated explicitly (you might have noticed the book was told from Harry Potter’s perspective).
The point is though, that he is a homosexual, well respected, powerful, and very loved wizard- and his sexuality doesn’t matter because no one else thinks it matters. a.k.a. no one care that he loves men, and that is wonderful.
where’s that list of burn centers in the us when you need it
How can you make the two greatest assassins in the universe completely useless and boring?
I loved GotG, but this is fantastic and true.
1. Doesn’t Thanos have a line calling Gamora his favorite daughter right in front of Nebula? Kate Beaton did a comic about it. They even cut to Nebula getting a pissy look and then saying “Thanks, dad” in a sarcastic voice. For a website that can write a thesis about Loki based on him blinking, that makes things pretty obvious. What more do you want?
Nebula: By the way, I resent Nebula because my father loves her more than me.
Ronan: Yeah, I got that.
Nebula: Just checking to see if you were paying attention. I also hate Thanos, which we can attribute both to him liking Gamora and him turning me into a cybernetic killing machine, but I’m obliged to serve him because he’s a nigh-unstoppable space god. However, I would jump ship if someone were to suddenly gain phenomenal cosmic power and come gunning for him. But then if it looked like the new guy was in danger of flaming out, I would probably peace out and see who won. I’m basically a pragmatic opportunist who hates everyone owing to an abusive family and home life. Everyone got that?
2. Gamora shuts down the shield generator protecting Ronan in the climax. Complaining about that is like complaining that in Return of the Jedi, Leia doesn’t physically explode the Death Star, she and Han ‘just’ destroy the (wadayaknow) shield generator protecting it so Lando can hit the power core while Luke kills the Emperor to keep him from escaping and continuing the war. It’s a team effort. What, does a female character not count unless she literally saves the universe all by herself?

We worked really hard on this amazing new music video for Heavy Metal and Reflective by Azealia Banks. I’d love it if you gave it a watch. She looks fierce as fuck and the track is hot. Much love to the tA crew for the hard work on this!
i can’t resist period dramas about silly topics.
i’ve watched shows about early (spying) flight attendants, a department store, lady codebreakers solving crime, ladies packing bombs for the war effort, midwifes, and i just want more (also what even were men doing).
make more period dramas, bbc. more i say.
