The Harry Potter fandom right now
the rest of the world
sirius black is so easy to love when you first meet him when you’re just seeing the joyous bright brilliant boy with his mischief and his pranks and his marauding, he’s all charm and smooth wit and he loves so much and so deeply and once he loves you he will do anything for you, he would without hesitation die for anything and anyone he loves. he loves hard and fierce and he doesn’t know how to stop himself. he thrives on attention and laughter and he’s very good at coaxing both of those things out of people so sirius is very easy to like at first glance.
but the ugly side to sirius is that he hates just as intensely as he loves and there’s nothing beautiful about it. he can be merciless and sharp and needlessly cruel, and he doesn’t always need a good reason. he’s easily bored and not particularly bothered by tormenting people for his own amusement. he thrives on attention. he gets swallowed by darkness and restlessness and he doesn’t know how to hide it, doesn’t know or try to avoid making everyone else feel the same way. he’s reckless, and immature, and he can’t — doesn’t want to — control himself.
sirius can be awful and it takes a while to understand that, the duality of intense affection and intense cruelty within him, but once you do he’s hard to love. it’s hard to love somebody like that. but his great redeeming quality is the flipside to the worst parts of him: as consumed as he can be by hatred, he’s affected equally by love. he’s brave and determined and he will do anything for people he loves.
sirius doesn’t know how to exist in shades of grey so maybe he’s hard to love but ultimately loving him is worth it because as awful as he can be, he can be just as good. and i think, more often than not, he wants to be good.

When I first started college I wore my LGBTQ button
on my book bag with conviction
but now I wear it with shame
because a bisexual college girl has become a cliche.
My closet has many rooms.
I am tired of being questioned by professors
if I am gay because most of my protagonists are.
I am tired of my boyfriend suggesting we have a threesome
because we would both enjoy it.
I am tired of being the exception to monogamy.
I am tired of being a phase
when phase is just another word for slut in my case
I am tired of being painted as a drunk straight girl
my feelings for my best friend in high school
cannot be compared to a hangover
I am tired of feeling guilty
for having a boyfriend all through high school
because even though I didn’t love him
he helped me survive in a small town
where too many LGBTQ buttons
were met with violence.
When I first came out to my mother
she slammed the closet door in my face.
She said bisexuality did not exist
that you are either straight or gay
and being gay is fine
but since I was her daughter she knew
that I was doing this for attention.
She knew that I was doing this for attention.
I am tired of being a private spectacle.
I am tired of being a conversation
you save until the fifth date
I have opened the closet door but I have not stepped out
because I am tired of being a trope
but if i’m going to be a stereotype
at least make me a permanent one.
I am tired of being seen as temporary.
To my boyfriend, I am tired of proving my commitment to you.
To my gay friends, I am sorry I didn’t fight the same battle as you.
To my fellow bisexual college girls, be proud.
To my mother,
do I have your attention now?
The Soska sisters, a pair of female directors were announced to be helming a brand-new “Painkiller Jane” movie, based on the comic book about a bisexual superpowered cop with healing abilities.
This is so exciting and the fact that’s it’s going to be directed by women is hopefully going to help us to avoid sexist stereotypes and male gaze camera angles.
Forget Marvel and DC, this is where i’m putting my money.
(Prayer circle that the main character will actually be portrayed as bisexual)
you guys do realise that marvel is planning the making of a movie about the black widow. who, by the way, as many like to forget and erase from her, is a bisexual woman.
We haven’t heard confirmation of a Black Widow movie yet so we’re sorry if we got that wrong (I googled it and I still can’t find confirmation but if you have a link we’d love to share it with everyone thanks) however it still stands that we don’t get many women superhero movies at all and even less with a sexuality other than heterosexual.
We aren’t erasing Black Widow’s bisexuality by getting excited about another movie with a bisexual female character (as a bisexual woman myself I can promise you we do everything we can to avoid erasure) there should be loads more bisexual protagonists in films especially superhero films and i’m planning on getting excited about all of them when they come, I won’t just limit that to a potential BW movie.
