I’m going to address something that I’m sure a number of people might say I’m not qualified to say, because I’m not a part of LGBT, but I’m of the belief that allies have a voice, perhaps not as loud of a voice, but a voice nevertheless.
I have recently noticed a common trend among the ouat fandom, of claiming that bisexuality is not as important as those that are just strictly homosexual, and in some cases deem bi-ships to be unimportant. I have actually had several conversations over the past year or so with friends on this sight who identify as bisexual and they have expressed a concern that their sexuality is generally faced with erasure or complete disregard.
This is not okay. At least not in my eyes.
Now I know Sleeping Warrior hasn’t had much screentime, but in the screentime they were allotted - even before the big reveal that Mulan had some serious feels for Aurora, it was quite evident that there was something going on there. Something that even casual viewers, like my mother and several other mothers or siblings or friends of people on this site said was pointed out to them.
I honestly don’t understand why this ship has such a small following or, better yet, why people screaming for representation hide behind a ship that is never going to happen. (I’m sorry, it’s true. Everyone has politely shut it down, explaining why and being as nice as possible recently.) Care about Sleeping Warrior, contribute content, meta, hopeful wishes, and let that voice be known in a positive way. Tell the writers, politely, that you loved to see that representation on your screen. That it mattered to you. It might not get much screentime in the future, as both actresses are busy with other projects, but at least let it be known.
If representation is really the issue here, why not support something that is healthy? Something that actually furthers the cause. A ship that actually might happen in real life. In fact, on an anecdotal note, I have a friend at school who was happily with a guy for about four years, they were on the verge of buying a place together when she met this really incredible girl at school, they became instant friends and before long she broke up with her boyfriend and is now dating said girl. Hell, if you don’t want to believe my anecdotal note, just look at Lauren Morelli for instance who’s been making headlines.
Sleeping Warrior is truly something to get behind, even if its only a very small part of the show. Because it is something people identify with and also a very huge deal in terms of making Mulan in love with Princess Aurora. It’s progress, small, but steady nonetheless.
I’m anti-feminist for many of the same reasons I’m an atheist.
So you don’t believe women exist?
Its okay. I’m an atheist because I don’t believe in something I can’t see or touch. I suppose women are much like that for you.
Somebody get him some ice.
okay, but a dude has to do it, cause he’s gonna freak the fuck out if he sees some floating ice coming over to him.
I never wanted any of this. I never wanted to be in the games. I just wanted to save my sister and keep Peeta alive.
Mrs. Everdeen, it’s the things we love most that destroy us.
Remember sometimes getting the song you were actually looking for and sometimes getting an mp3 of bill clinton saying that he didn’t have sexual relations with that woman instead
