I can only dream of having the kind of writing output that Chuck Tingle has.

I mean, sure: you could make the quantity vs quality argument… but that title is just [chefs kiss]

It’s almost as long as an Isekai title.

I like the added touch of the cover art showing the bisexual T. Rex character as a triceratops

I saw something on Fox about how “the left” were “sexualizing” superheroes because of bi Superman. As if decades of explicitly (sometimes very explicitly) heterosexual superheroes (never mind the pin-up heroines) weren’t “sexualizing” them. (Also: “the left”? Really?)

Right win media think that the left are constantly in a state of change, either we are sexual anarchists or we are puritans. Sometimes that change happens mid sentence, because they don’t understand the meaning of consent.

We really are Schrodinger’s sexuality, you don’t know what we will be until you look.

Is The Borderer a puritan yet?
No.
Then shove her back in the closet and look again in an hour!

In this particular case, these people have probably already attacked “the left” as puritans for criticizing hyper-sexualized (and sexist) representations in comic books, yet now act as if sexuality were a new phenomenon introduced by “the left” (because, apparently, all non-heterosexual people are on “the left,” or only “the left” even acknowledges that non-heterosexual people exist?), conflating non-hetero sexuality with “sexualizing,” while also suddenly ignoring [gestures to all of comics]…

So you’re saying we need bigots to spur on our creativity?

Yeah, culturally, being a white cis het male is still treated as the “default,” where one only has race, gender or sexual orientation by being… not that. But it’s super weird to see that attitude so explicitly stated with such a total lack of awareness, while also expressing the idea that the mere existence of a bi character “sexualizes” comics, but the entire history of hyper- sexualized representations doesn’t. It’s the combination of stupidity, lack of self-awareness and the “compartimentalization” of Fox arguments, where a small detail is used as a point of attack (but only by ignoring the context, their own previous positions and well, everything else).
