RP blog for Rief Miasson of Golden Sun. Also a fandom blog for whatever I feel like fangirling this week. Tracking the 'littlemercury' tag.
They’re all queer. Minako may come off as straight in the anime, but in the manga she is queer as fuck. Here’s how I see them.
Usagi- bi (I was gonna say pan, but actually I do think she finds different things attractive in men, women and inbetween) and potentially eventually polyamorous
Rei- open homoromantic asexual in the manga and PGSM and probably Crystal, closeted (but will eventually come out) lesbian in the 90s anime
Ami- biromantic ace (or maybe just bi- hard to say without more evidence)
Mako- bi- tends to favor boys, but when she crushes on a girl, she crushes hard (see: Ami and Haruka)
Haruka and Michiru- lesbian space princesses
Setsuna- bi- equal level crush on Serenity and Endymion
Chibiusa- bi like mama
Why do you think that they are ALL queer…?
How is Usagi bi? She isn’t in love with Haruka or Seiya (and even doesn’t know that Seiya is a girl until pretty late in the 90’s anime).
Rei has something close to a relationship with a man in the old anime (not saying anything about the other stuff…).
How do you get Ami’s vibes…? From where…? And how is she romnatically connected to Makoto?
Also I don’t think that admiring a woman (what you count as a “crush”) determines one sexuality (Makoto’s admiration for Haruka).
Why is Minako pansexual? (In the manga she has something for Rei, in the old anime she’s into boys - or do you consider her crush on Yaten as evidence?)
Setsuna has a crush on Endymion - that one’s true. But she just respects her queen… That doesn’t count as a crush.
Why is Hotaru a lesbian? Because she is close to Chibiusa…? Is that also the reason why you count Chibiusa as bisexual? Being close to a person also doesn’t determine your sexuality…
I don’t think that making people more queer than they are is better than making queer people heterosexual…
the better question is, why the fuck do you care about my headcanons? Do not follow my blog if you’re going to bother me with your heteronormative bullshit.
and you’re right, Usagi is so completely straight, there is no evidence she’s bi.
She completely platonically gets off on lingerie clad friends groping her breast
Minako is doing some really heteorsexual boob groping in her most heterosexual outfit too.
True, Usagi is known for going on buses specifically to check out hot girls, then getting hearts in her eyes and following them off the bus bc in her words “she’s so pretty”
How on earth could anyone read that as queer?
Note the official translation had her saying “I’ll forgive anything if it’s a pretty girl” or “I’ll do anything a pretty girl tells me to” something that people would be JUST SILLY to think is a sign Usagi is attracted to pretty girls.
And there was totally never the slightest sign she was attracted to Haruka
how heterosexually her heart pounds and she swoons slightly as she prepares for haruka to kiss her, offering no resistance.
Usagi completely heterosexually had a dream about Haruka kissing her after it happened and woke up flushed and feeling like she’d cheated on Mamoru, which I’m not sure why she’d think that. considering how straight she is.
In the anime, she was stalked Haruka for an entire episode and asked if she had a girlfriend in a heterosexual way, was head over heels about the idea of dancing with her in a heterosexual way, and the other girls swooned and were jealous of usagi for dancing with her in a heterosexual way.
And you’re right! Rei had a guy who has a crush on her in the anime! It’s true that she said outright she didn’t have any feelings for him and simply admired his devotion to her in her R episode with Koan, but we all know women aren’t allowed to decide whether they want to be in a relationship with a guy who likes him. If a guy likes them, they are OBLIGATED to return their feelings! And Rei definitely wasn’t know to have really gay moments with Usagi.
and it’s not like Usagi ever teased her about possibly being gay, or that she tried to hide an interest in attractive women.
I’m such a silly, where do I get this stuff.
And she comes off as so hetero in the manga. Definitely nothing ever implied there.
nooooope. Nothing implied with Minako either (ps i did say Minako might come off as straight in the anime- however, since her anime character wasn’t as developed, i tend to fill in gaps with her manga and pgsm characterization.)
definitely they weren’t super queer in PGSM or anything either.
(don’t think being “they type who doesn’t like boys” means Rei isn’t straight. It’s a new type of straightness we haven’t identified but we’re working hard)
And yeah, that Makoto and her platonic fascination with Ami’s butt, that she doesn’t take her eyes off for a full minute
And how could I read Chibiusa and Hotaru’s friendship as anything but platonic? I mean, Hotaru totally platonically fondling Chibiusa’s naked chest.
totally platonically gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes. while naked. Foreheads touching.
this completely platonic scene
Hotaru may have never shown any interest in boys, but you’re right, i should read her as straight regardless.
how could anyone think that was gay, with that phrasing. Especially since Mamoru watches on and describes it as “giving his daughter away as a bride”. Platonically.
I’m so sorry that I, a silly, stupid queer woman, dared try to read any of these characters as queer. Everyone is straight until proven otherwise, you’re right. You’ve shown me the way with your hetero wisdom.
(guess what? Even if this wasn’t all true? It wouldn’t fucking matter. I can read characters however I want, and no one needs “evidence” they are not straight. Straight should not be the fucking default, and queer people can look for representation and read relationships as romantic or platonic. You can bet if they were het, none of these relationships would be read as platonic. And there is a much evidence for a crush on Serenity for Pluto as there is for Endymion- neither are outright confirmed in the text of the manga, just “admiration”. Naoko says Setsuna has “adulterous” feelings which could refer to BOTH OF THEM (I doubt that’s what she MEANT, but she didn’t say anything concrete, so guess what? I can interpret it as I want). So get the hell out of here with your assumptions).
(Also I read Haruka as genderqueer in the manga. I hope that makes you REALLY upset).
I want to wear this post as a cloak, the Sailor Senshi are all hella queer and I will throw down if you say otherwise
Sailor Moon is queer as hell
I’ve gotten so many people in my inbox trying to defend the first anon’s “opinion” (as they like to put it) it honestly disgusts me. It was not an innocent opinion about food (like you guys like to compare sexuality to) or fashion or anything like that. They were asking me to tag all prompts about asexuality with something so they could blacklist it and get rid of any mention of it from their dash because they “do not agree with it.” They’re the definition of the word bigot, but people are saying that’s not true. Replace the word ‘asexuality’ with another (more supported on Tumblr) sexuality or a race, though, and everyone would be singing another tune.
I’m sick of the erasure of my sexuality, the A being made to stand for allies instead of aro/aces, the crimes committed against people with my sexuality, the thought that we’re broken, the thought that we’re wrong, the thought that we’re emotionless, the thought that we just want special treatment or status.
I’m sick of people being ignorant about my sexuality, choosing to continue being that way, and ridicule, belittle, or hate asexuals instead of educating themselves about it.
I’m sick of people being neutral or not supporting it (“It’s not wrong, I just don’t…”) because you are part of the problem. You are no better than those who dislike our very existence since you choose to turn a blind eye to it all.
And apparently all this makes me a horrible person. It makes me a horrible person to stand up for my sexuality. That is what Tumblr has taught me.
I, for one, find your defending asexuality admirable, as another ace who has a very negative opinion of the LGBT community because of it’s lack of interest in defending aces.
You’re doing nothing wrong, and this is your blog and you’re entitled to deal with anon hate however you damn well please, haters can go fuck themselves.
otpprompts, you are an absolute champion badass and fuck anyone who says otherwise.
I’m gonna tell a story now that I’ve never told anyone. (Funny, I’ve done this a few times this week, I wonder if there’s some kind of honesty chemical in the air or something.)
There was a period of about six years in my life where I thought I was completely broken because I didn’t have any interest in sex or romance whatsoever. Everyone around me was talking about sex and how awesome it was and who they were getting it from and I just felt nothing but a vague sense of annoyance that they wouldn’t keep it down so I could read.
And when people worked this out, well shit. The amount of crap I had to put up with for the last few years of school and my brief stint at the local university was absolutely hellish. I got the lot: rape threats, jokes about needing ‘a good cock in her’, a couple of times people even tried to beat me up. All of this shit went on in front of teachers and not a goddamn thing was done.
It did eventually turn out that the anti-depressants I was taking at the time were too damn strong and discovered that I’m actually bisexual (or pan, I’m still trying to work out exactly what’s going on in here), but I will never forget the shit I went through there.
If you refuse to believe the A stands for anything but ‘allies’, I hate you. If you think Asexual people need to be ‘fixed’, I hate you. And if you’re so offended by the very concept of asexuality that you harass someone for refusing to give someone the ability to pretend it doesn’t exist because it hurts their ~delicate sensibilities~ then you are shit and I hate you especially hard.
