legit ships that never sail with a couple that have like a *kayak
bracing for hate
"you love me, and you’re gay" from last week
you love me: fact
you’re gay:…………………………………ehermmmmmmmmmmm *side eye to that*
we got plenty of evidence that Ian is gay no exceptions
he doesn’t even like lady mouth parts, which, to be fair are pretty much the same as guy mouth parts
i think the only thing we can say for sure about mickey is that he’s a slut
i’m not saying it’s some
i just mean
there’s been nothing even implied that he sleeps with various women solely for the purpose of keeping up appearances
usually that is made quite clear in a story
it hasn’t even come up, like at all
Ian all hurt: you sleeping with her?
Mickey: *confused* everybody fucks her……………….. *still confused*
we know mickey has got serious hang up’s because of his seriously fucked up father
having being fucked up the ass listed as one of your favorite pass times doesn’t shove you on the 6 end of the kinsey scale
we got evidence for homoflexible at best
in love with ian
ugh, they are the reason i watch this show
ep 1. They have a gay character \o/ ……… whose entire character seems to revolve around him being gay :/
………..Hold the phone, that’s a lady….is this supposed to be a shit depiction of the widely peddled slow coming out story in which every guy must round bi to get to gay third base? Not sure if i’m angry about bi-erasure and unhappy that any male character who sleeps with men is cast as gay……or excited for diversity??
Political animals ends perfectly in this regard as TJ expresses annoyance in the “gay” identification
TJ: When you get your gay card nobody tells you boobs are off limits..Boobs are AWESOME.
*swoon* political animals wins all the awards *whine* why are they cancelled
despite the name being excruciatingly, nails-on-the-chalk-board spot on
the show is not terribly offensive
and it could get better
the overly racist gran with the (lol) callista gingrich hair cut only aids to the perception that only horrible people contribute to oppression and not systems or governments or nice people who simply don’t want to challenge the status quo or so on
Ne Ne character is pretty much a standard angry black woman
despite the shows claims of alternative family styles what may be progressive for tv is of course hardly for those of us who live in cities like the bay area on the west coast (yee!)
so i add to my list of complaints that the family remains homonormative
with a football watching beer drinking alpha male that brings home the bacon and and effeminate husband who nags and appears generally superficial concerned mostly with fashion
-oh and the little girl seems very interesting
all and all i will continue to watch the show for personal reasons
delivers a full service lesson on intolerance with a costantly overlooked message
speaking up and speaking out
Bryan insists that it is his fault for ignoring the bullies
that it’s the non-ignorant people’s responsibility to keep the assholes in line
couldn’t agree more normal
Warehouse 13 manages to put
into one show congrats you guys
major thumbs up
who wrote this episode?
Beaver had June and Ward. Ricky had Ozzie and Harriet. Mom and Dad, same-sex couples or blended families, California law is clear: No more than two legal parents per child. When adults fight over parenthood, a judge must decide which two have that right and responsibility – but that could end soon. State Sen. Mark Leno is pushing legislation to allow a child to have multiple parents. “The bill brings California into the 21st century, recognizing that there are more than Ozzie and Harriet families today,” the San Francisco Democrat said. Surrogate births, same-sex parenthood and assisted reproduction are changing society by creating new possibilities for nontraditional households and relationships. Benjamin Lopez, legislative analyst for the Traditional Values Coalition, blasted Leno’s bill as a new attempt to “revamp, redefine and muddy the waters” of family structure by a leader in the drive to legalize gay marriage. “It comes as no surprise that he would try to say that a child has more than two parents – that’s absurd,” said Lopez, whose group calls itself a leading voice for Bible-based values. Under Leno’s bill, if three or more people who acted as parents could not agree on custody, visitation and child support, a judge could split those things up among them. SB 1476 is not meant to expand the definition of who can qualify as a parent, only to eliminate the limit of two per child. Under current law, a parent can be a man who signs a voluntary declaration of paternity, for example. It also can be a man who was married and living with a child’s mother, or who took a baby into his home and represented the infant as his own. Leno’s bill, which has passed the Senate and is now in the Assembly, would apply equally to men or women, and to straight or gay couples.
In which TYT makes fun of a 14 yr old but seriously it’s adorable how horrible this kid is and how much of a carbon copy for the right wing hosts he is. Ben makes the point that I would. No way I would have said that shit at 12 and nobody I knew would have and I knew a whole bunch of religious kids who believed it was a sin. “Sickening” is 5much and that kid needs to have a fucking seat. Ben is right kids are kills themselves 14 is way to goddam old to act this damn nasty.
look at you media corrupting our babies
So I’ve been flying threw the
showtime starz (lol thanks) series Spartacus for obvious reasons.
Sex & Violence (don’t worry i won’t sing the song). That’s about all there is. Far less political intrigue and maneuvering than that of HBO’s Rome. Nevertheless it’s entertaining. Because it’s mostly loose plot of i kill you, you fuck me. I feel it necessary to comment on one of the four main relationship’s currently playing out in Spartacus: Vengeance.
Guess who hasn’t fucked yet?
That would be Agron & Nasir
I’m crude and to the point because as i said the show is comprised of blood and fuckery with a dash political maneuvering. So when two main characters aren’t fucking something is very wrong. especially when it’s those two *fans self*.
So the previous series Spartacus: Blood & Sand had another gay relationship who did fuck, quite often /Barca & Pietros /which SPOILER, they got killed. More than their deaths, which is what pretty much happens to everybody on the show sooner or later. The relationship was very much a gladiator-takes-a-boy type thing, which although it was lovey-dovey and the severity of their relationship was articulated quite awesomely in this exchange
Crixus: What is Barca if not a gladiator?
Oenomaus: A man, free to roam outside these walls
Crixus: What? tending goats, picking vegetables with Pietros?
Oenomaus: He left the boy
Crixus: He’d sooner part with his own cock
Spartacus: Blood and Sand
The previous relationship of Barca & Pietros was on far less equal footing than that of it’s heterosexual counterparts. Conversely Agron & Nasir were shown to find each other as the other hetero relationships had formed. To be fair and to give praise. The entire idea of homosexuality in true Roman fashion is not one of debate. There is very little hierarchy of relationships in the existing system socially. Politically there is hetero marriage but consistent with time period and place nobody gives a two fucks about homo or hetero.
So can they get it on please? It is at this point, bordering on suspicious when the one legit [see: non-rapey] homosexual couple is not being shown screwing. Especially when at least one of the couple is a main character. You’re on tumblr, and if you haven’t seen the show Tumblr fans would have you believe Nasir occupy’s the “boy’ role in the gladiator-take-boy dynamic mentioned above. Sorry to say, they are lying to you. This is an unfortunate reflection of Tumblr’s pathological need to create a hetero-normative butch/fem (see: male/female) dynamic for any relationship.
This is what makes the couple all the more important. That dynamic does not really exist. Not to say there would not be a clear winner in a fight between them, but to squeeze them into such a dynamic would be a misnomer. It’s best represented in the gif above, a sort of back and forth. Please pay no attention to those people telling you Nasir is cat with claws. Nasir occupy’s the same position as did the other gladiators when they first started out; small, inexperienced, angry, violent and untrained. Especially when juxtaposed with Pietros, who pretty much occupied this position, the entire time.
So Spartacus only seems comfortable showing homosexual relationships and or fuckery when there is a clear hetero-normative dynamic of a “male” and a “female”. Since Agron & Nasir do not fit into that box, we are left without Agron/Nasir sexy time while all of the above pairs have done it at least a half a dozen times each.
Hey starz if you guys are confused at all and you’re not sure or you don’t know who is going to top or bottom, we’d all be perfectly fine with extended fuckery and they can both switch. It’ll be fucking awesome. You can break the mold of societies irrational hatred of people who can occupy two spaces or dual roles at the same time. There isn’t always a dom/sub dynamic for every freakin thing. Some people just go back and forth their whole lives. I know it sounds exhausting, but trust me guys, there are some people out there that make it work. What better time to break the mold than for the finale?
also i will do short post on lesbianism in Spartacus a bit later
