Queer subtext in media is nice and all, but have you considered:
- Including actual queer characters instead of vague metaphors for queer characters.
do you think jimin yells “OHHH YEEEHH PARK JIMIIIINNN” when he lifts weights then crushes empty protein shake cans on his head
he still looks the same
Some things I’ve learned in the CBT clinics I’ve been going to regarding anxiety that I thought might be helpful to some.
for real though. i have tried so hard to explain these things to people. jfc.
Listen up, Snowflakes.
fun little thing to tack on: triggers ARE NOT things that make you uncomfortable or uneasy, they are material that lead to visceral reactions/flash backs/panic attacks due to previous traumas
they aren’t even phobias
they are related to ptsd, not general discomfort or fear
bilingual my ass. you’re either heterolingual or homolingual
Doctor Who is no longer my fave TV show and you have no idea how sad that makes me

When characters we love die, we mourn them. Yes, we are pained by the death of the character, but we equally pained by the departure of the actor/actress. Naturally, most of us didn’t feel sad about Joffrey dieing, in fact, most were quite glad about it. Long story short, I don’t feel like Jack Gleeson is getting a well-deserved good-bye, and let’s not forget his wonderful work.
So here’s to the death of Joffrey, good-bye you little piece of shit!
And here’s to the marvelous portrayal of such a horridly despicable character by our darling, Jack Gleeson!
