No, but the author, subby and whoever greenlit this thinks so.

Knock yourself out.

Because it's oh so healthy to tell young girls that if they don't follow rigidly defined gender stereotypes, even down to letting their parents organize a contest for their hand in marriage like you're some trophy, they must be a giant dyke. Thanks a lot media for reinforcing gender stereotypes and putting pressure on young girls to conform.

No we don't, but idiots want us to.

From the original EW article: "she hates the prospect of marriage - at least, to any of the three oafish clansmen that compete for her hand"

Well, yeah -- but she seem fine with reconsidering the whole arranged marriage idea for the few seconds she thought the young Dingwall heir was the strong, silent dude.

So, sure, she's gay, if your plan is to confirm the "real lesbians don't exist" stereotype. She's the redheaded cartoon Amber Heard, secretly longing for her Johnny Depp to cure her of gayness and archery. How progressive.

So, asks Adam Markovitz in a controversial article entitled "How to generate page clicks via controversy" at Entertainment Weekly, "Is Merida gay?"

Is Wall-E a lesbian? I mean he's an oafish, weak, effeminate robot. He has no cock. He arguably has a huge vagina whose only purpose is to destroy that around him. He wears makeup. He likes chick flicks. He likes to sunbathe. And yet we assume he is a man, because he goes after a much more powerful robot that happens to look cleaner and have a lighter voice and occasionally giggles.

But actually is a big vibrating egg.

I guess treads would be sensible shoes to a robot.

You forgot loves showtunes. If there's a gayer group of showtunes than that of the score of Hello, Dolly! I don't know what it is.

I'm pretty sure she's till a fictional cartoon to until or unless she actually has sex with someone, she is neither homo nor hetero sexual.

It's like shcrodeger's cat. We have to assume she is both (or in this case Neither).

CLEARLY THE TITLE BRAVE IS A REFERENCE TO THE BRAVE ONE A MOVIE STARRING JODIE FOSTER WHO IS A LESBIAN

This. Wouldn't want to teach our daughters that they can rely on themselves, now would we?
 
2012-06-27 06:00:53 PM
Of course she's not gay. The word is "lesbian"

We're all being trolled here people.

Well.. maybe not specifically *us*, but look at the target demographics. It's just too easy.

I guarantee you she's bi.

Did you ever think Bugs Bunny was sexy when he dressed up like a girl?
 
2012-06-27 06:37:38 PM
Jesus farking Christ, no.

Someone can want for themselves a life that is not defined by the rigid roles imposed upon them by family or society without necessarily being GLBT. Fark me running, whoever even asked that question must be either mentally thick or hopelessly sheltered.

No, but if you're a dude and you went to see it, you probably are.

Does she eat Oreos in the movie or something?
 
2012-06-27 06:40:16 PM
This is relevant to my interests.

Boudica was one tough mama-jama. Was she gay? She had daughters but that's not necessarily proof of heterosexuality or bi-sexuality. Who cares what her or any other brave woman's sexuality is. Besides, bravery expresses itself in dark places where the media and the hangers-on don't go.

So she fought the good fight. That's all that's necessary to know.

It never ceases to amaze me how often people go looking for messages that aren't in any way being conveyed.

These.

Chariset: Of course she's not gay. The word is "lesbian"


I personally prefer "Gay." Most people, especially on the Internet, who hear "Lesbian" automatically think "Oh, she's just an ugly attention whore who needs to be farked really hard." Alright, so "Think" might be giving them way too much credit, but still.

She's a skilled archer, she fights, she detests girly clothes, rejects all her male suitors, and explicitly expresses that she does not want to get married.

I bet Braves heroine loves rainbow oreos too, shes going to hell SO hard!

The weird thing about the article is that it essentially has the discussion while saying, "There's no need to have the discussion."

Bodica was queen because her husband was king. When the Romans killed him, she formed a huge army to avenge his death.

In the "Historical figure least likely to be homosexual", she's in the running.
 
2012-06-27 06:47:17 PM
She will be in a bunch of pics on the internet soon, just like every other Disney princess.
 
2012-06-27 06:48:15 PM
She's just another typical LUR. L.esbian U.ntil R.escued.

Usually use gay women myself. Accept for my neighbors who insist on dyke.

If everything you experience in life is viewed through the "oppression by the hegemonic kyriarchy" lens, then I truly have pity for you.
It must really, really suck to judge every movie, every TV show, every book, every comment made by others, every significant life event by how much they they conform to your belief of a world "rigidly defined by gender stereotypes and the oppressive patriarchy".

No matter how much of an activist you are, you've already lost.
