Never ever forget that





-Steve Rogers was raised by an Irish-catholic single mom in New York in the Depression era -Steve Rogers grew up with a ton of disabilities -Steve Rogers had an apartment in an incredibly gay section of New York -Steve Rogers was a fine arts student -Steve Rogers completely missed the Red Scare, McCarthyism, the Cold War, Vietnam, Korea, etc. -Steve Rogers was written by two Jewish guys -Steve Rogers had a gay best friend and did not consider his love to be any less valid or less real -Steve Rogers worked with Japanese-American and black soldiers in, again, the Second World War -Steve Rogers was just in a movie about how utterly fucked up the military-industrial complex is Basically if your Steve Rogers is a conservative commie-hating uberChristian who would be at home in a racist southern church, you’re doing something wrong.

this is why Mark Millar is trash and his interpretation of Steve should never be considered canon ever :)

I just need to reblog this one more time and drown in it.

the issue with making an all-bi cast a mix of gay/bi/straight has a few prongs to it, none of them being that gay characters are included which is imo a great thing and what I was rooting for b4 this news

  • there is no need to introduce straight characters just bc you introduced gay ones. there is nothing to balance out, this is not a zero sum game, there is nothing to gain by limiting romance options further just bc gays got to & it’s spiteful
  • both gay and bi/pan/poly players who play same-gender romances now actually have fewer options and less representation bc one section of the romance pool is exclusive and unavailable to them. despite more ‘diversity’, the number of sg romances & lgb+ chars in existence has declined from ~9 to ~6
  • it absolutely panders to straight players who couldn’t stand the thought of their LI being a total flamer in someone else’s game
  • it absolutely panders to the idea that straight people must be included regardless of impact or necessity in order for something to be realistic, and that realism is in and of itself a thing that should be aimed for
  • there is no way to make a char straight rather than a previously considered other option w/out there being unfortunate implications about what constitutes an lgb+ person. this is a problem inherent in transforming a population from all lgb+ to no longer so
  • possibly the biggest issue is that in practice there will not be an ‘even’ split in the romance quality. having everyone be available to players of any gender was a safeguard that prevented straight characters from eating up all of the content but now that it’s removed you can guess from experience and demographic awareness what the results will be
    - the content differences in da:o and me3 romances were notorious. as has been pointed out, in da:o the straight characters were both clearly the most game-essential companions and had the most involved romances. in me3, the gay characters were introduced in the last game of a trilogy and weren’t even squad members, interaction with them was lacking and as much as I loved them they honestly felt like optional add-ons. 
    - when we split the system as a way of catering to all groups, the most Important group will inevitably get the best pick: the most major characters, the most interaction, the most fulfilment. the next pick is involving characters that whilst unsettling to them can also be available to this demographic (bi/pan/poly choices), and the final and least cared about is involving characters that exclude them (gay choices). no intense attention is going to go into characters whose content will not be played by the majority of gamers, this is the nature of a system that caters to ‘diversity’ and ‘realism’ rather than compassion

so I’ve seen other gay ppl celebrate this and yeah I’m with you friends, I for one am looking forward to getting the characters and romances that weren’t good enough for the straight demographic, I love scraps and not being able to access content, really gets me going

Filed under i want to frame that last point on my wall that is exactly what makes me so concerned about this i mean i loved samantha traynor a lot but she was noticeably a 'lesser' romance compared to the het options (and liara was 'not really gay because aliens' if you're gonna pull that bullshit on me then you can accept me not counting it for representation) and as much as i love leliana - which is a lot - she still is perfectly easy to never recruit and not have your game suffer at all plot-wise in fact i almost missed her on my first playthrough by accident dragon age
