Fuck you, Marvel.
- •On May 24th, #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend started trending on Twitter.I was overjoyed: this would mean Cap is bisexual!
- •And there were some great arguments in favor.
- •AND THEN
- •AND THEN THE VERY NEXT DAY, Marvel reveals that Cap was actually working for Hydra—a terrorist organization closely linked with the Nazis—all along.
- •Marvel is telling us that it's better to be a Nazi than be gay.
- •I'm so fucking done. Tired of the homophobia and biphobia that Marvel has made clear they're not working to fix.
- •There's one upside to this: the Internet community. Getting #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend trending was huge, and so many people have stood up to Marvel in their own small—but absolutely vital—way.
- •So fuck you, Marvel, for ruining one of my favorite superheroes and stepping all over my sexuality and the identities of millions of people who are sick of having almost no representation in the media. And thank you, progressive internet people, for trying to stand up to Marvel and get our message across.
