When I heard that Constantine wasn’t going to be bisexual on the new NBC show, it stung deeply. He doesn’t have to be a big flirt or shag guys on screen to be bisexual. He can even prefer women. I’m not sure if the actual intent was “no; this character is straight on our show” or “we’re not going to show that side of his orientation.” If they are all out making him straight, that is really upsetting. Part of the reason I like Constantine is because I related to that aspect of him. I didn’t need or want it shoved in my face every time I read it, but knowing it was there helped me connect to him. I’ve wanted to do this cosplay for years and now some of the joy has been let out of the balloon. When I read the articles about the announcement I thought, ‘wow, what I am is so distasteful that it has to be fully removed from this character for him to be acceptable.’ That hurts. I hope that it’s not a blatant straight-wash. Even if he never got with a guy on screen, I could still say, “hey, he’s bi and that’s important to me.” But if they go out of there way to say and show that he isn’t, then I lose something here that endeared me to the character so long ago. More than that, it says what I am is less, wrong, unwanted, unpalatable, and unimportant. That doesn’t sit right with me. So I put my two cents out there with humor and love for this character and I hope that I’ve fully explained my thoughts and feelings on the matter.

Very useful to know, pass and share please.
I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this.
I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head.
Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away.
So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out.
I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot
Wow, I like, seriously miss Clint suddenly. Whatever. I’m avenging shit in California and the cat and dog are fed.
So this is what trust looks like.
Funny, my first thought was “So this is what the patriarchy looks like.”
I actually screamed a bit when I saw this. This is what true horror looks like for me.
This is what unsafe archery looks like.
