Shopping for clothes when you have big boobs is normally really annoying esp when you like drapey things or want something that cinches at the waist cause you always get stuff like this
when the hell did this get over a thousand notes
Christ this speaks to me on an emotional level
All right Sciles tag, let’s have a talk.
This is one of my favorite places, you know? But the Sciles fandom isn’t perfect. And one of the problems I have with it is this aggravating little trend I have the misfortune of seeing over and over again in fics.The one where, for some reason, Scott is not allowed to be queer.
Stiles is allowed to be queer. Stiles is always the one who’s written as actively attracted to other boys, or who has male exes, and guys who hit on him, etc. But Scott is more often than not explicitly Stiles-sexual, and time and again the fic will go out of its way to add that he’s “”not gay”“, not interested in guys at all, nope, he just wants Stiles.
Far be it from me to tell you how to interpret queerness, but some things just don’t work like that. It’s sad enough have nothing but radio silence in place of Scott’s sexuality when Stiles’ gets to be loud and clear, but it’s the biphobia that really gets to me.
I mean, of course he’s not gay. Because the real word you’re looking for is bisexual. And that applies to both Scott and Stiles- hell to any character who has canonically been shown to be attracted to a different sex. You don’t have to warp their character by making them gay, you just have to expand on it with a completely legitimate orientation that doesn’t invalidate their canon attraction to girls! Wow, bisexuality is amazing!
It’s different if you’re writing from the character’s POV and you personally believe they’d struggle with internalized biphobia- that’s perfectly fine, and completely realistic for someone going through a queer awakening, but as the writer it’s also your responsibility to call that out in the narrative. By not correcting it, you’re tacitly endorsing the bi-erasure that runs rampant in media, its fandoms, and the LGBTQA community as well.
So enough of this single-target sexuality nonsense. If you don’t want to write about Scott being with anyone else, fine, but don’t make him be the heterosexual poster child in your little slash world with Stiles as his exception to the rule.
Sincerely, a sad bisexual Skittles shipper.
