You didn’t think this one through very well, did you?
Here’s the deal: people seem to constantly feel the need to make this argument about playing same sex romances, about identifying as a feminist, about supporting marriage equality. This argument that they back into when challenged, that “supporting [LGBT-relevant cause] doesn’t make you LGBT!!!!” Like that doesn’t covertly lash back into the faces of the people you’re claiming alliance with.
And it’s honestly laughable that you felt that exclamation to be more appropriate than something like “SAME SEX ROMANCES SHOULD BE REPRESENTED IN GAMES BECAUSE QUEER PEOPLE PLAY GAMES AND THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING QUEER SO THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH PLAYING QUEER CHARACTERS.”
We sure as shit do “have a long way to go,” partially due to the fact that allies like you keep backing up like you’ve touched something hot.
Did you read the confession at all? No, really, did you?
Or did you fabricate some commentary to respond angrily to and accidentally use this pic with it?
I’m genuinely curious.
Did you read the response at all? No, really, did you?
Or are you a fan of the whole”I’m an LGBT ally but whoaahhh back up I’m not gay nope no homo here” thing and simply failing to understand why someone else wouldn’t be?
Do you have an actual problem with that, or were you just lurking this blog and waiting for a reason to be angry and condescending so that you can join the high-five circle with your group of buddies who hate us?
Do you want to bring up the first person plural thing now, or would you prefer to save it for when you can get a whole circle jerk going about it?
