Gail and Holly giving each other the “stop the bullshit and tell me” look.


it’s very frustrating being a girl and trying to flirt with other girls like. you tell them, ur cute. ‘Aw thank you’ no. no i’m being gay with you. homo intended. damn it


I am perpetually a half year behind when it comes to reading my comics. They languish in stacks as I get them, waiting until that one or two days a month where I have free time and remember how behind I am. Then I binge read for a bit and the cycle renews.

Which is to say, while this storyline was printed last Summer, I didn’t discover that they’d outed everyone’s favorite purple-haired psychic ninja as bisexual: Psylocke of the X-Men family of Marvel Comics, as depicted in Uncanny X-Force issues 7-9.

The fact that this happened and I hadn’t read about it in some news outlet by now astounded me. Northstar, arguably a much lesser known character (though I’ve always loved him. So dreamy. Such a bad boy. I digress.), marries his boyfriend and it’s national news. Loki’s new writer announces the character’s bisexuality and I can’t go anywhere on the internet without tripping over somebody’s opinion on the matter. 

So why is it that the most overly-fetishized, overly-sexualized X-Man of all causes nary a ripple with her love affair with Cluster? At the very least I would have expected something from the more juvenile contingent of the internet making some sort of fuss. Nada. Well, almost nada. We do have this post on Tumblr which has had a mere 11 note response in six months.  And then there is this thread on Comic Book Resources (aka CBR).  

I really don’t encourage anyone to go to that latter link unless you really want to read twenty odd internet forum pages of one angry Psylocke fan declaring she can’t be bisexual until she’s shown dating someone who matters, until she’s shown dating as many women as she’s dated men, and until she’s shown as bisexual by any other writer than the one who outed her because this fan does not like that writer’s work. There are also a lot of people trying to set this guy straight (no pun intended) about bisexuality and any number of his other deluded ideas. But really, like most any fan-ran internet discussion, it’s a lot of frustrating trolling.

But that is pretty much all. And the fact that no one at Marvel has made mention of it one way or the other when they do so with other characters troubles me. But regardless, I’m going to celebrate Psylocke as she’s been shown, as one of us, and hope this isn’t something that just gets swept under the rug in order to appease the trolls who need their wank fodder less Sapphic.

Coooome ooon! Skye literally skips into Jemma’s hug, her hands are already on Skye when she jumps- look at it, she’s just so happy and free to skip from joy when she sees it’s Jemma. With May it was a contained nod and smile, with Fitz a short hug, that whole conversation with Ward, but with Jemma she’s as giddy as possible and feels free to show how happy she is, because Jemma’s her person.

Whatever they turn out to be, I need the writers to acknowledge how much they care for each other, because the emotion is obviously there and very relevant.

Kissing Katrina Law who plays Nyssa was easier than kissing Stephen.

“And that’s what happens when a lesbian directs a lesbian kiss. And then there were never any more lazy, stereotypical lesbian characters in American film ever again. Okay, not really, but every time you see a movie where a lesbian doesn’t kill anyone, doesn’t kill herself or doesn’t use a passport, it’s a victory. Go lesbians!” — Film critic (and favorite film gay) Alonso Duralde (X)

Here is a little information post. Nothing fancy. It is far from complete, but lets face it, a lot of lesbian cinema makes me want to throw my television, computer and most electronics out the window because they are so bad (Go Fish, Claire of the Moon, etc). These films range from stellar to alright, but I’m sure there are still a few decent ones I missed. For the TV section, I’ve only linked shows that have (or had) a lesbian as a main character/series regular. No stunt “suddenly lesbian for sweeps” shows here!

Unfortunately, no downloads here (Tumblr police are watching, y’all). The links direct you to the project’s IMDB pages. I hope you discover something new to enjoy.
