Shattered Glass

I am sick and tired of LGBT storylines where the characters are defined by their struggle with liking the same sex. I am sick of the gay panic and the drama that is defined purely by this one tiny aspect of who they are.

I want a storyline where it’s about a person having problems, like saving the world, or being chased by the mob… but they HAPPEN to be gay.

#i mean jesus christ our gay panic is not all that we are #it’s not who we are #personally i was more freaked out when i realised that harry potter will have to end #rather than when i realised i like girls in a sexual way

If I may be honest:

It IS pretty weird to see characters of minorities in fiction, whether books, tv shows or movies where the only (defining) aspect of the character/personality is that s/he is part of a minority. Which leads to some odd things and unfortunate implications:

What’re her hobbies? She’s black.

What’s his job? He’s gay.

What do her parents do? She’s jewish.

And so on.

In light of this, I think we’re all really thankful for Dumbledore.
