it’s funny but until i watched that video of the adventure time writer saying that marceline and pb couldn’t explicitly date in the show or the comics because “that sort of thing is illegal in some countries,” i hadn’t consciously realized that this is why queer representation is so piecemeal in mainstream media. because if dumbledore had been out and proud in harry potter, the publishers literally wouldn’t have been legally allowed to sell their books in some countries and they would have lost millions of dollars. and that’s to say nothing of any potential north american boycotts - like, j.k. rowling literally would not have been legally permitted to publish her books.
and it’s kind of an obvious realization but, like. there it is. the single biggest thing keeping queer representation from at-risk queer children is the fear that some multi-national publishing company or movie studio might lose money.
funny how every company is super willing to hand out branded rainbow flags at pride for a chance to make a quick buck off the queer community but when the possibility of forfeiting some profit in the name of protecting and encouraging that community comes up they’re suddenly not so interested.

Those who claim that sex is determined by chromosomes must not realize that sex is assigned at birth not by chromosomes, not even by gonads, but by genitals. In fact, the vast majority of us never learn what our sex chromosomes are. Sex isn’t something we’re actually born with, it’s something that doctors or our parents assign us at birth. So if sex is determined by genitals, they must be clearly binary and unchangeable, right? Wrong. Genitals can be ambiguous at birth and many trans people get gender confirmation surgery to change them. Neither chromosomes nor genitals are binary in the way that “biological sex” defenders claim they are, and the vast majority of measures by which we judge sex are very much changeable.
While it is true that gender and sex are different things, and that gender is indeed a social construct, sex isn’t the Ultimate Biological Reality that transphobes make it out to be. There’s nothing intrinsically male about XY chromosomes, testosterone, body hair, muscle mass or penises. If an alien civilization found earth, they wouldn’t look at a person with a penis and say “Oh, that must be a male, sex based on genitalia is the One Universal Constant.” Sex, like gender, is indeed socially constructed and can be changed.- It’s Time For People to Stop Using the Social Construct of “Biological Sex” to Defend Their Transmisogyny | Mey Rude for Autostraddle (via gaywrites)
