Marvel if you don’t announce a fuckin Black Panther movie to open in 2017 I fucking swear…
I’m annoyed with this trope where a straight person finds out his/her significant other had an ex of the same sex and they freak out about it. Like in How to Get Away With Murder, it’s two of the law students, and the guy didn’t even really have a relationship with a man; more of a one nightstand. Of course it’s Larry in Orange is the New Black as well, and he views Piper’s ex, Alex as evil and so forth but she’s not. And now in Gotham, the woman who I assume will be Barbara Gordon Sr. just told Jim she had a one year relationship with a woman and now he feels betrayed?
Maybe I just have a little too much faith in humanity, but I’d like to think people don’t react that horribly to bisexuality. The worst version was the way the girl in How to Get Away with Murder treated her fiancé when she found out about it. She was really narrow-minded about it.
"WERE THEIR ANY OTHER BOYS?!? MY DRESS IS VERA WANG AND REALLY EXPENSIVE AND IFF I HAVETO RETURN IT I’M DOING IT NOW. IF WE GET MARRIED I’M NOT GETTING A DIVORCE NO MATTER WHAT SO IFYOURE ’ GAY JUST TELL ME NOW."
Can this type of thing just be a fact of life and not this shocking secret that’s difficult to interpret?
I’m one episode behind on Gotham. Hearing this makes me really sad. That subplot on HtGAwM annoyed the hell out of me. But man, I love what they’re doing with Barbara on Gotham. So much disappointment right now.
So, I was loving How to Get Away with Murder.
And then a character has her fiance show up and it’s revealed her male classmate and him went to boarding school together and it’s not so subtly implied they had romantic history. They’re a bit annoyed with him bringing it up but here I am interested in the idea that this girl and her bisexual boyfriend are in this typical situation of “oh how awkward, you work with my ex”.
It’s later revealed that the girl thought her classmate was originally lying and now she is furious at the idea that her fiance has been with another man. It starts off as a “you didn’t tell me” sort of offense but very quickly progresses to “I don’t think I can marry a man who’s been with other men.”
She’s completely inconsolable on the subject and I’m thinking that something’s gotta be explained to her here, the right words will be spoken, this will be handled correctly, I love this show too much so far…
But by the end of the episode she’s told him straight up “You should have told me before you even asked me out” as if liking someone of the same sex is comparable to having a criminal record. She asks him if he’s gay and he swears he isn’t, that they were kids and it was nothing and he’s never done anything like that since. Because of all his apologizing and the way the conflict wraps up it heavily implies that this character was in the right for being so ashamed at the idea that her future husband liked a guy once. As if liking more than one gender doesn’t even exist in this show’s universe.
I was so let down by this subplot. And now in previews of the next episode it looks like the fiance and the classmate might have an affair and I it’s just going to further demonize the main token gay character and probably continue to deny bisexuality and I just really wish this subplot would go die.
You know you’re on your period when reruns of America’s Next Top Model make you sob uncontrollably
Wow, I sure am on my period a lot……
I’m at a loss. I’m torn. Part of me is resisting writing a review at all because it’s been two hours since I finished watching Tusk and I just want a mental moment of peace again… Unfortunately I fear there is not life after Tusk. Surely like Justin Long for the rest of his career… I can’t escape it. My life is now forever living-with-Tusk.
