Yes! I’m so phone-phobic sometimes, I’m glad this is an option!
lately i’ve been seeing posts about people asking for more queer representation and yeah yeah hell yeah i’m all about that but some of them have been offhandedly referencing paranorman by going “one joke/reveal at the end does NOT count as representation”
and i TOTALLY AGREE but that doesn’t mean you can dismiss what laika is trying to do here. sudden proper and well-informed inclusion won’t happen overnight. this isn’t some on and off switch. this is about trying to get your foot in the door and budging the door as much as possible
you all forget just how much BACKLASH paranorman got for just ONE line and you all forget how poorly the film did in contrast with the other animated films that year. thankfully the film’s fanbase managed to spread word and DVD release finally made the film a success but i digress
it may not be proper representation but it’s a start. again, this is laika’s SECOND film. you have companies who have been around for almost a century who can barely manage to include a woman of color.
yes, this is just the start and albeit it’s a small start but damn it if it doesn’t make it super important when you think about OTHER children’s films that have done it (damn near none.)
oh, and by the way, you also forgot laika’s boxtroll commercial which featured same-sex couples so yeah laika deserves mad props
I actually really liked how the “gay character” mention in Paranorman was handled?
The character in question is a high school jock who’s the older brother of one of Norman’s friends. After he gets wrapped into helping Norman, Norman’s older sister becomes immediately attracted to him. She hits on this guy a number of times throughout the movie and he just casually shrugs it off. It isn’t until the end of the movie that we figure out why, and it’s only in a passing remark.
There’s no point in the story where he acts like a stereotypical gay guy. He was just some thick-headed jock. He probably never would have mentioned having a boyfriend if the subject hadn’t been brought up.
And that’s the way it should be. At least, how I wish it were.
Because it’s really NOT a big deal. It’s a trait, but it’s not really important unless you want to deal with something that affects this trait. Stopping a rampant haunting and helping your brother’s weird friends has nothing to do with being gay.
The titular Norman never said what sort of people he’s attracted to, but that’s because he never had to. What do you assume he is? Who cares?
I know it’s important to have representation in the LGBTQ community, but it’s also important to show that they actually aren’t that special. They’re just normal people with different preferences.
All of the orgasms in fic are so violent. His orgasm came like a punch to the gut. It hit him like a mack truck. It knifed him in a fucking alley. What these orgasms need is a good education.
the orgasm tapped him on the shoulder politely because it wasn’t raised in a goddamn barn
By the time he came back to himself, the orgasm had washed the dishes, vacuumed the living room, and retrieved his lost house key from under the chaise lounge.
Back to the violence:
It wasn’t until after he had braved the harshest of weathers to reach the top of Mt. Orgasm that he realized his last oxygen system had sprung a leak.
i keep seeing Jontron posts and its just getting embarrassing. for everyone. including the tumblr peanut gallery.
Right? I remember when The Colbert Report twitter made some dumb out of context asian stereotype joke. People on tumblr were promoting the #cancelcolbert thing the next day.
Not saying that Jontron didn’t go about this the wrong way, but at least he eventually realized his error and cut it out.
The power of the twittered word.
Jontron said some douchey things, but tumblr is portraying him as the next antichrist.
Anita Sarkeesian pulled some bullshit stunts, but there is some truth to what she says… And she does NOT deserve the death threat vitriol she has gotten.
Zoe Quinn cheated on her boyfriend, raped him, asked for forgiveness, then cheated on him again. Those actions are horrid. Her game and the people who like it are not.
I haven’t even been paying attention to Phil Fish.
And that’s all I have to say about that.
Before seeing Guardians of the Galaxy:
Friend: I just thought it was really sexist and stupid how Gamora became all enamored and breathless over Starlord so quickly.
Me: Damn. Well, I wanted to see it for Rocket and Groot anyway.
After seeing Guardians of the Galaxy:
Me: Well, dang, if some guy whose ass I kicked earlier had just nearly killed himself saving me from suffocating to death in outer space, I’d be enamored and (literally) breathless over him too.
You watch one video and then suddenly every other youtube suggestion for the next two weeks is about kangaroos giving birth.
So, it has been confirmed that Marceline and Princess Bubblegum officially dated in the same way that Dumbledore is confirmed to be gay: Is it canon? Yes. Will we ever see this in the source material? Probably nah.
One day… one day…
