I like that a tumblr is like a snapshot of your consciousness. It's a record of the things you like, the things you find beautiful or hilarious and there is no real pressure for it be anything more than a snapshot of your thoughts.Ask me anything
Dissecting a character to fit a heteronormative box is sloppy and irresponsible. Bisexuals deserve to be represented in media too — not erased or straight-washed. If NBC can’t handle portraying a bisexual male character, then perhaps the network shouldn’t take on John Constantine.
Sexuality is always a part of a character — however minimal — but some sort of romantic or sexual relationship is usually a significant plot point in superhero stories. A bisexual male superhero would disrupt the hetero male template of, “hero saves damsel in distress” that we see consistently in iconic stories like Superman, Spiderman, and Captain America. But it’s 2014, and sometimes men need saving too.
There’s something particularly elusive about bisexual male characters. There is a deeply ingrained misconception that a man can’t be romantically involved with another man and still be interested in women as well. It’s centered on the idea that masculinity requires a wanting, and “getting” of women, and not men. But the depiction of Constantine in Hellblazer proves that is a false assumption.

Anonymous said: I'm at a gas station in Arizona and they're selling Confederate flags. The fuck does Arizona have to do with the Civil War? This is some stupid bullshit.
Probably the main thing it has in common is that it’s full of racists, just like the Confederacy.
I saw a pick up truck with a confederate flag painted across the hood this weekend.
