how long must we wait for a lesbian disney princess
or what about a prince who throughout the entire movie you think he’s going to be the love interest but in the end it turns out he’s gay
or how about a lesbian princess
Everytime someone asks for lesbian representation someone will try to turn it to something else, a gay guy or a girl with no love interests etc. Every fucking time. As soon as you say “lesbian” someone is already gearing up to derail the conversation and change the focus to something else. Why is this considered so much to ask, why every other person has something else to propose as an alternative?
As for the people who say how about both a gay prince and a lesbian princess at the same time and other people think they’re together but they’re not and we find that at the end. How about no?
How about not making a story about a lesbian princess revolve around whether a guy wants her or not and whether others think they should be together? How about not revealing the lesbian princess’s sexuality at the end as a surprise? How about making the story about the lesbian character and what she wants and what she’s after and maybe the love interest she’s trying to win over and not take attention from her to give it to a male character and his perspective. Male characters have a bad habit of taking over female characters’ story arcs. It’s like writers can’t help themselves. How about a storyline for a lesbian character that doesn’t involve romantically a male character at all, not even as a beard or to show that she’s really a lesbian? Can’t we really imagine a story for a lesbian character that doesn’t include a guy in a protagonistic role challenging or reinforcing her sexuality and taking over her screen time? Does a lesbian character need a male character to prove her sexuality by not being attracted to him? How about a lesbian princess saying she looks for the girl of her dreams and we just believe her and the story is about her and her adventures?
How about a lesbian princess?

Retail Robin is my new favorite meme you guys. I’ve sadly experienced ALL of these working retail. What about you guys? I HATE RETAIL.
YESSSS THIS IS SO ACCURATE IT HURTSHilariously enough a lot of these apply to the theater as well
you can hear the sound of my slamming my head against the wall right now
Things Quinn Fabray Had to Lose:
- Any kind of pride at all in her “tremulous alto”. The great Rachel Berry herself said they needed it and Sue quickly disabuses her of that. (That little resigned smile where she laughs at herself for expecting anything different or believing Rachel to begin with.)
- Noah Puckerman’s affection. “Yes, especially now” was a long time ago.
- The knowledge that at least one adult cared about what happened to her and had her back. (At this point, she’s not even bothering to fight back.)
- Beth. For a second time. After all the other things she didn’t have to lose, she finally cries at this. (How carefully she took the phone and cradles it in her hands.)
And then it’s a mystery why she has to pretend to be special.
