did you know that fuckboy was a slur against niggas who aint shit
satire is “I’m going to take this concept to an extreme or absurd level in order to demonstrate how bizarre/nonsensical/illogical it is” and not “I said something bigoted but just kidding I didn’t really mean it hahaha”

fuckboy was a slur used against gay and trans men but we’ve turned it around to mean shitty cishet white boys who are also coincidentally the enemy in the skeleton war and i think that’s fucking great
FUCKBOY IS NOT NOR HAS IT EVER BEEN A SLUR
FUCKBOY IS A TERM USED IN AAVE (AFRICAN AMERICAN VERNACULAR ENGLISH) TO REFER TO DUDES WHO WERE ASSHOLES
I DON’T WHEN/WHERE/WHY SOME CLUELESS WHITE PERSON DECIDED TO MAKE UP THIS STORY BUT IT IS FUCKING FALSE

This is a reminder that the Montgomery Bus Boycott lasted 13 months and the Civil Rights Movement took over 10 years, so next time you want to tell us to “get over Ferguson”, “its been long enough” “You’re not making any difference” remember that.
I’m not going to say everyone who doesn’t ship Ichabod and Abbie to date is racist. I might disagree with them, and I might be concerned about their viewing comprehension, but it’s entirely possible for you to not see them together and not be racist.

"Wow," fifteen-year-old me thought to myself. "Santana has dated guys, but she likes Brittany now. A bisexual character on my television screen! She’s just like me!"
Think again, you sweet, naïve, beautiful bisexual baby.
Soon Santana was applying the label “gay” to herself. Now, don’t get me wrong! I’m all for people claiming their identities, and I’m fully aware that people’s sexualities can change, and that a girl can date guys, then realize later that she’s only attracted to women. But oh my god! Can I have one fictional character identify as bisexual???
I thought there was hope with Brittany, who staunchly insisted that she did love Artie, as well as Santana… She went with “fluid.” Again, a perfectly valid label for some, but it seems like showrunners will bend over backwards to avoid saying the word “bisexual.” In fact, the only time I remember hearing that word on Glee was when Blaine briefly thought he might be bisexual. He was shut down by Kurt, who said, “Bisexual is a term gay guys use in high school when they want to hold hands with girls and feel normal for a change.” This doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Glee was a show immensely popular with teens, especially queer teens. How many bisexual young boys saw that and felt invalidated and hated?
Santana and Blaine joined a tradition of bisexual erasure — the concept of turning all potentially bisexual characters into either straight or gay characters — that, in my media consumption, began with Willow in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Once again, I want to stress that if Willow were a real person, I would 100% defend her identifying as gay even after having dated men. It’s the writer’s choices I’m criticizing. In Orange is the New Black, Piper has serious relationships with both a man and a woman. And yet it’s always, “I’m not a lesbian anymore,” “I guess she’s gay now”; they never suggest that she could possibly, ever, even a little bit, be bisexual. Apparently, that word is taboo. And I’m tired of it.
"But Freddy-May," you ask. "Is there a trend you hate even more than bisexual erasure? What are some things that happen when bisexuals are portrayed in the media?” I’m glad you asked. Here’s a storyline I just can’t stand. Two people are dating. Maybe they’re of the same sex, maybe not. Either way, one of them finds out that the other one was once with someone of a different sex than the person they’re with now! This is of course an egregious betrayal, and now that person must apologize for once loving someone else and prove once and for all that they’re 100% gay or straight.
Recently Tumblr has been in an uproar over an instance of this storyline in How to Get Away with Murder, but it’s also occurred in many other shows. I see it most with female/female relationships. For example, in Pretty Little Liars, Maya and Emily get back together after being on a break, and Maya mentions offhand a guy she dated in the interim. Emily starts to get upset, not that she was with someone else (as Emily was too), but that it was a guy. It’s true that biphobia in the lesbian community is pretty rampant, but I don’t always want to see it on my TV. It doesn’t need to be a conflict that every single female/female couple goes through. Does it really set a good example? Or how about the infamous “It was a phase” line from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World? (There, at least, we bisexual fans get a proxy in the angry ex who’s extremely pissed at being reduced to a “phase.”)
Another storyline I hate is the over-sexualization of a woman’s past relationships with women. This usually occurs when she’s currently in a relationship with a man. I’ve seen this at least twice, in Bones and Happy Endings. A woman’s old ex is coming to town for a visit, and she doesn’t mention to her boyfriend that it’s a woman. The ex-girlfriend shows up, and suddenly the man is falling all over himself with sexual arousal and asking them to talk about their sex life together. It’s creepy and disrespectful of an actual romantic relationship that is now over.
Is it so much for me to ask for a few canonically bisexual characters in my TV shows? I’ll concede a few, of course: Angela in Bones (despite aforementioned storyline, is mostly treated well), Cosima in Orphan Black, and Frank Underwood in House of Cards. I’m sure there are more, and I haven’t seen or read about every TV show, but there clearly aren’t enough, and there are far too many examples of bisexuality being ridiculed, invalidated, sexualized, and demonized at every turn.
