TIME 100 is about people who are influential in their industry not people who have appeared in the most films
Laverne is a TWoC making an impact in a world against people like her. She is an amazing person and one of my absolute biggest inspirations.
Benedict Cumberbatch is just some alien looking motherfucker who plays Sherlock. Who gives a fuck
not to mention that isn’t even all laverne does??? she tours around college campuses and gives speeches about trans rights (trans woc, specifically), and she attends so many other events and is currently working on a documentary about cece mcdonald, and actively fights for trans women in general. like oh my god just check her twitter she is always doing something i swear
but no u just think its because she was on a tv show…. like ooooooookay. (even then, she’s a trans woman of color PLAYING A TRANS WOMAN OF COLOR so that’s pretty awesome)
i dont ever reblog spiders but i do tag #menstruation and nsfw and all that so no need to worry ^^
why i view a character as queer: i connected one of their habits to something i used to do to cover up being queer. their interactions with a same-gender character remind me of romantic tropes. they’re a childhood hero and i’ve collected every possible trait that might be an indication of queerness over seven years of time to form a complete extensive collection of these traits so they can be like me. I took the queerbaiting in one of the episodes involving them seriously because it’s the closest i’m going to get. They have a way of dealing with issues that’s similar to how i dealt with issues when i was repressing queer feelings. Their powers/narrative is a direct parallel to the standard queer narrative and may even be considered an intentional metaphor for it but i don’t want fucking metaphors i want actual representation so i’ll make this shit both, don’t go stealing my shit. Thousands upon thousands of reasons.
why straight people apparently think i view a character as queer: to push the “Gay agenda”
I don’t care if you like Benedict Cumberbatch or not, but I need EVERYONE READING THIS to click on this link, scroll down to laverne cox (or just ctrl+f her name) and click YES on her voting!!!!! it’ll make you sign in with either facebook or twitter, but it is instant one-click signing in, and they don’t post anything on your profile. it’s just for verification purposes so 4chan doesn’t fix the voting again like they did a few years ago.
Don’t make an excuse. It’ll take like thirty seconds. Just do it.
also take the time to vote no for jared leto and rupaul
um so lemme get this straight…tiana starts her own business in a time where black women had next to no rights….mulan pretty much saves china and becomes a top ranking military official….but the annoying sister in frozen makes a throwaway line about being gassy and gets lauded as the the first feminist princess??
