They’re all queer. Minako may come off as straight in the anime, but in the manga she is queer as fuck. Here’s how I see them.
Usagi- bi (I was gonna say pan, but actually I do think she finds different things attractive in men, women and inbetween) and potentially eventually polyamorous
Rei- open homoromantic asexual in the manga and PGSM and probably Crystal, closeted (but will eventually come out) lesbian in the 90s anime
Ami- biromantic ace (or maybe just bi- hard to say without more evidence)
Mako- bi- tends to favor boys, but when she crushes on a girl, she crushes hard (see: Ami and Haruka)
Haruka and Michiru- lesbian space princesses
Setsuna- bi- equal level crush on Serenity and Endymion
Chibiusa- bi like mama
Why do you think that they are ALL queer…?
How is Usagi bi? She isn’t in love with Haruka or Seiya (and even doesn’t know that Seiya is a girl until pretty late in the 90’s anime).
Rei has something close to a relationship with a man in the old anime (not saying anything about the other stuff…).
How do you get Ami’s vibes…? From where…? And how is she romnatically connected to Makoto?
Also I don’t think that admiring a woman (what you count as a “crush”) determines one sexuality (Makoto’s admiration for Haruka).
Why is Minako pansexual? (In the manga she has something for Rei, in the old anime she’s into boys - or do you consider her crush on Yaten as evidence?)
Setsuna has a crush on Endymion - that one’s true. But she just respects her queen… That doesn’t count as a crush.
Why is Hotaru a lesbian? Because she is close to Chibiusa…? Is that also the reason why you count Chibiusa as bisexual? Being close to a person also doesn’t determine your sexuality…
I don’t think that making people more queer than they are is better than making queer people heterosexual…
the better question is, why the fuck do you care about my headcanons? Do not follow my blog if you’re going to bother me with your heteronormative bullshit.
and you’re right, Usagi is so completely straight, there is no evidence she’s bi.
She completely platonically gets off on lingerie clad friends groping her breast
Minako is doing some really heteorsexual boob groping in her most heterosexual outfit too.
True, Usagi is known for going on buses specifically to check out hot girls, then getting hearts in her eyes and following them off the bus bc in her words “she’s so pretty”
How on earth could anyone read that as queer?
Note the official translation had her saying “I’ll forgive anything if it’s a pretty girl” or “I’ll do anything a pretty girl tells me to” something that people would be JUST SILLY to think is a sign Usagi is attracted to pretty girls.
And there was totally never the slightest sign she was attracted to Haruka
how heterosexually her heart pounds and she swoons slightly as she prepares for haruka to kiss her, offering no resistance.
Usagi completely heterosexually had a dream about Haruka kissing her after it happened and woke up flushed and feeling like she’d cheated on Mamoru, which I’m not sure why she’d think that. considering how straight she is.
In the anime, she was stalked Haruka for an entire episode and asked if she had a girlfriend in a heterosexual way, was head over heels about the idea of dancing with her in a heterosexual way, and the other girls swooned and were jealous of usagi for dancing with her in a heterosexual way.
And you’re right! Rei had a guy who has a crush on her in the anime! It’s true that she said outright she didn’t have any feelings for him and simply admired his devotion to her in her R episode with Koan, but we all know women aren’t allowed to decide whether they want to be in a relationship with a guy who likes him. If a guy likes them, they are OBLIGATED to return their feelings! And Rei definitely wasn’t know to have really gay moments with Usagi.
and it’s not like Usagi ever teased her about possibly being gay, or that she tried to hide an interest in attractive women.
I’m such a silly, where do I get this stuff.
And she comes off as so hetero in the manga. Definitely nothing ever implied there.
nooooope. Nothing implied with Minako either (ps i did say Minako might come off as straight in the anime- however, since her anime character wasn’t as developed, i tend to fill in gaps with her manga and pgsm characterization.)
definitely they weren’t super queer in PGSM or anything either.
(don’t think being “they type who doesn’t like boys” means Rei isn’t straight. It’s a new type of straightness we haven’t identified but we’re working hard)
And yeah, that Makoto and her platonic fascination with Ami’s butt, that she doesn’t take her eyes off for a full minute
And how could I read Chibiusa and Hotaru’s friendship as anything but platonic? I mean, Hotaru totally platonically fondling Chibiusa’s naked chest.
totally platonically gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes. while naked. Foreheads touching.
this completely platonic scene
Hotaru may have never shown any interest in boys, but you’re right, i should read her as straight regardless.
how could anyone think that was gay, with that phrasing. Especially since Mamoru watches on and describes it as “giving his daughter away as a bride”. Platonically.
I’m so sorry that I, a silly, stupid queer woman, dared try to read any of these characters as queer. Everyone is straight until proven otherwise, you’re right. You’ve shown me the way with your hetero wisdom.
(guess what? Even if this wasn’t all true? It wouldn’t fucking matter. I can read characters however I want, and no one needs “evidence” they are not straight. Straight should not be the fucking default, and queer people can look for representation and read relationships as romantic or platonic. You can bet if they were het, none of these relationships would be read as platonic. And there is a much evidence for a crush on Serenity for Pluto as there is for Endymion- neither are outright confirmed in the text of the manga, just “admiration”. Naoko says Setsuna has “adulterous” feelings which could refer to BOTH OF THEM (I doubt that’s what she MEANT, but she didn’t say anything concrete, so guess what? I can interpret it as I want). So get the hell out of here with your assumptions).
(Also I read Haruka as genderqueer in the manga. I hope that makes you REALLY upset).
someone please be awake and laugh about this with me
daja falls for a girl who turns out to be straight and briar’s having a douche day and laughs at her and so she just decks him and gives him a black eye and rosethorn visits the next day and is like ‘HOW DID YOU GET HURT TELL ME AND I’LL SKIN THEM UNLESS IT WAS YOUR FAULT’ and he tells her and she just laughs at him for 25 minutes without stopping and gives daja the emelan equivalent of a fistbump when she walks in and blatantly refuses to give him any of her bruise cream which he wasn’t even going to ask for because he can make his own, thank you, but jeez, rosethorn, thanks for letting me know how much you care when i’m in pain, and she just stops laughing at him never
daja meets a lady friend because she’s one of briar’s ~*~midnight paramours~*~ and she gets to know daja the morning after over a strong cup of trader tea (the girl’s done business with them before and loves its flavor so they bond) and is like, sorry briar, i met someone, and he’s like, WHO, and she’s like, your roommate, and he’s like DAJA THAT’S NOT FAIR YOU NEED TO STOP BEING SO HOT and she’s like, all’s fair in love and war buddy, and takes the girl by the elbow to have a lovely stroll through the market and talk about magic and their lives and make out adorably
and rosethorn finds out because briar is sulking in the garden and making the plants upset and she laughs even harder this time because she’s probably been at least one of the female components of this equation before and so she knows how it works and of course she tells lark who thinks it’s the greatest story she’s ever heard and they both give daja the emelan equivalent of a fistbump the next time they see her
the other day this guy was hitting on me and he complimented the curliness of my hair so i was like “thanks you know when i was younger it used to be really straight but then i hit puberty and it changed completely haha” then i paused a few seconds and continued “you know it’s not the only thing that stopped being straight once i hit puberty” but i guess he didn’t get the message because he kept hitting on me smh
get this to 1k notes please it’s the best story i’ve ever told in my life
my boyfriend sent me this without a word
IT’S THE ACTUAL VIDEO
u go girl
I BELIEVE I wrote this joke. Not 100% sure, but I think I did!
He is here.
Looking again at this gifset, there really is no real reason why Thorin should be looking to the side and away from the door when it’s opened save to present his magnificent side profile against the moonlit sky.
Um he’s obviously admiring Bilbo’s flowerboxes, okay?
pretty flowers. must be elvish. ew
