I listened to about half of Fun Home and now I'm watching Luca with a friend and holy fuck Luca is very queer. Not even queercoded, really, just straight up queer. Like, this is the thinnest possible gauzy veiling. It's about as veiled as Animal Farm. On the one hand, Disney seriously needs to have … Continue reading Review: Luca (2021)
The two flattering exchanges between Caduceus and Caleb caught my ear as much as anyone. There's clearly some stronger, closer relationship forming there. Maybe it will come to something else one day, but on review, I'm not reading it as romantic overtures so much as two socially awkward people trying to communicate kindness.
Good question! They/them is the polite pronoun set to use when you don’t know. In that context, think of it like “that person in the red shirt.” Maybe you are a person who always wears a red shirt and that is what you want to be know for (or is your only defining feature as … Continue reading i always thought that “they/them” was gender neutral and therefore could be used for any gender though? like she/they he/they or just they? it doesn’t necessarily mean that person ONLY goes by they/them? like I’ll use it when I’m not sure what gender someone is, as kind of an umbrella pronoun. was that wrong of me?
I’d like to address a question in my comments so it gets more viability, and I can elaborate on power dynamics a bit better. It’s a good question that gets to the heart of why this is an issue I am so firm on and persistent about. Question: Just curious, how do you feel about … Continue reading QA: Power dynamics of queer headcanons
I’m so tired of being angry about this, but here we still are, apparently still needing remedial pronoun lessons for nonbinary people like Molly. So here it is AGAIN. (The answer to “When will you shut up about this?” is “When I stop seeing people get it wrong.”) People get to choose their own pronouns … Continue reading Use Molly’s correct pronouns, part 3
In reply to the article “Analysis Caduceus Clay Ace/Aro – CR C2 Ep 028-032 ”I spent 6/14 paragraphs describing how body language was a bigger tell than specific text, so narrowly focusing on one example out of context with the whole feels disingenuous.As for figurative language and jokes, my observation was that he does get … Continue reading There’s a big difference between being isolated from civilization and not understanding dick jokes or being able to relate to sexual euphemism and being ace… like Cad doesn’t get most figurative language or jokes…
In the words of Taliesin Jaffe, “I’m not a big believer in hope. Hope is a sin.”  I have closely watched every minute of CR C2 Ep 028-032 with the intent of seeing something to prove this theory wrong, because I don’t trust hope. But the harder I’ve looked, the more solid the theory … Continue reading Analysis: Caduceus Clay Ace/Aro – CR C2 Ep 028-032
I wrote an article about ace representation in Critical Role Campaign 1 that was published in The Asexual journal. “Epic as the story is, the characters are very complex, conflicted, and often contradictory. Characters can be kind and also assholes, brave and also scared, confident and insecure. It contains some of the best portrayals of … Continue reading From The Asexual – Thanks, Keyleth: Ace Representation in Critical Role
peacepenguine: death-by-vicious-mockery: otdderamin: I haven’t yet alienated all of Tumblr, so let me elaborate on why it’s bothering me so much that people are misusing Molly’s pronouns in fics. It’s not a couple people here and there that are exploring Molly using they/them pronouns. It’s nearly every single nonbinary Molly fic in 5 months. There’s … Continue reading Use Molly’s correct pronouns, part 2
