I like girls. Deal with it.

Since most people are already aware that I’m not straight, I have decided to take this Coming Out Day to come out of a conclave that has lasted for years. Because, despite knowing I wasn’t straight, I was never quite sure which part of the great bit LGBT+ spectrum I occupied until recently.

I’m gay. I like girls. Deal with it.

Killing Stalking and BDSM misconceptions

Earlier today it was brought to my attention that “the blood and violence in Killing Stalking is because of a thing that’s called BDSM” in a comment in the yaoi Amino and I just… I can’t, okay? I can’t let these misconceptions be a thing anymore. I’ve done this for each Fifty Shades movie that has come out up until now, so I’m gonna do it again for Killing Stalking. Now get into your seats and quiet down, because class is in session.

Sometimes, the meaning of life is gay pop culture blogging.

For the final post I would have to make for my college mandated blogging assignment, I planned a big post about the discovery of my own identity. I mentioned in my about text that I would like to finally put to easy, clear words who I am. That post is now a disjointed draft that’s trying to make 6 different points at the same time while also not really going anywhere. That post will have to remain in my drafts for a while longer.

I’m not leaving, though! I haven’t run out of ideas for this blog yet, and without the limitations my college imposes on me I might even be able to go all-out even further once summer vacation starts. For this “final” post, I’d just like to talk about what running this blog has meant for me so far.

Yuri, femslash and how they’re different from their male counterparts

I learned about the existence of yuri at about the same time I got into yaoi. However, I didnt get into it until fairly recently. Of course I’d given reading the odd Harley/Ivy femslash fan fic a shot, but the writing never really grabbed me in the same way the writing for most m/m relationships in fan fiction did. Then, years later, a friend of mine recommended Saburouta’s Citrus to me, and it changed the way I looked at lesbians in pop culture and fandom.

What is Pink Kryptonite?!

We probably all know this by now. Superman is absolutely overpowered and there’s nothing he can’t do. However, he has one weakness. Something that could generally be considered his Kryptonite. You know, Kryptonite.

Kryptonite is usually a green, glowing piece of rock that keeps Superman from doing anything that makes him special. No flight, no super strength, no heat vision; just regular ol’ Clark Kent. What you maybe didn’t know is that Kryptonite comes in many different kinds and colors that have different effects him. Put simply, Green Kryptonite makes Superman weak, Red Kryptonite makes Superman angry and Pink Kryptonite makes Superman gay.

Ace representation and Riverdale: Why Jughead should NEVER have kissed Betty

A few months ago, I first heard my classmates talk about Riverdale.  When I asked, most of the girls didn’t even know that Riverdale was based on the long running series of Archie comics. Not entirely surprising, since the Archie comics never really were a thing in the Netherlands. I do think that’s a shame, because the comics and the characters have so much fascinating history and now that extra layer is gone.

I’ll be honest here and say I’ve never read a complete issue of Archie comics in my life, but I’ve been watching from afar, keeping up with how the comics were changing for the better and developing its characters; including the asexuality of Jughead Jones.

History 101: Gay code of the 1970’s

Over the last few years, we’ve seen fashion from the 70’s and 80’s slowly becoming hip again. Large fashion labels are now reviving relics from the past like long sundresses and mom jeans.

Last Wednesday, Levi’s released a tweet upon the world in which they showed a handkerchief, inspired by the AIDS memorial quilt, to promote their upcoming Pride Collection.

100% of the proceeds from the Levi’s Pride Collection go to LGBT+ charities, which is something to be optimistic about in my opinion, but something else may be completely going wrong here.

In the photo, you can see a navy handkerchief hanging  from the model’s left back pocket. I’m not sure Levi’s knows what that means, but I do.

Just a quick heads up that this post is going to be a lot more explicit than my previous ones. Links to additional information are provided, but clicking them in public is not advised.

5 ways Yuri!!! On Ice made anime history

Yuri!!! On Ice was easily the most popular anime of the fall 2016 season. Even before the BL undertones were switched out for overtones the show managed to set itself apart from many others among its peers as both a sports anime and a BL anime. Just how does Yuri!!! On Ice differentiate itself from the competition, and how could these tropes be used to change anime up into something new?
