On Closeted Characters, and the Books That Love Them

@avidbiologist I do realize that my sad feelings are really, really petty in the overall context of our culture and how it treats LGBT people/characters*. I think @SmartCookie articulated my view better than I am able to. Making non-traditionally masculine boys/feminine girls gay - it's reinforcing traditional gender roles and I find it irksome.

*I have a moderately-loud voice in my head going "you are a straight, white, middle-class American seriously just shut up no 1 curr."

... and now I'm sad. Not because I think you're wrong about Katniss, but it's another one off the list of unfeminine straight girls of fiction.

I suspect I am going to be good for absolutely nothing between now and tomorrow when I watch Thor: Viking Abs: And Angry Space Elves or Whatever.

I am sort of ashamed of this, but not as much as I should be.
