ok so like, all headcanon is valid headcanon and all that crap, ok fine, but if you think dave doesnt like nicki minaj youre just wrong, ok
we can argue about what his favorite song is (its superbass, though) or how many times he has gravely informed rose that he macks them dudes up, backs coupes up and chucks the deuce up (“too many”), but the central argument here is non negotiable sorry
also i’m almost sorry for how crappy this is but not quite

good username good reblog commentary
everything about this post is perfect
randomly dropping in to post this
i needed more human kanaya for rp purposes so i drew one
i’m shit with backgrounds could you tell
ok so while everyone’s been theorizing about UU being sufferer it just occurred to me that
This does make a fair bit of sense! And, I mean… it’s not like growing up in Scratch’s tender care would have encouraged her to use her trollgiven sign or whatever, even if she does apparently know what it is, given her collar thing.
THE SMILIES WERE WHAT GAVE IT AWAY
I’m kinda hoping UU is a new character (has Huss said otherwise?) but this is good too.
oh i’ve been figuring on the caduceus being the symbol for the hero of life and it being the condesce given she’s supposed to be both the batterwitch and le’s agent in the kid’s universe, but i suppose this works too :o

I agreed with you until I got to the heteronormativity part. That’s you misconstruing things to make a problem that isn’t there. Without doubt, making a joke out of sexuality apart from “the norm” is certainly as bad as jokes about alcoholism…
I know what heteronormativity means (although I bothered to read the tags and get a better understanding). I’m just trying to see how heteronormativity was there at all and assumed OP thought it was being a joke somehow. I mean, the trolls are pretty much a big step away from heteronormativity (aren’t they?) in Homestuck. Perhaps OP seems them as a joke now? I don’t really know.
There is also just the fact that I’m pretty damn wrong here.
Yeah, there is definitely that fact.
The trolls, much as I love them, are still largely auxiliary to the story, and while they might be considered some kind of step, it’d hardly be a big one. A tiptoe, really. They create a potential for a break in heteronormativity, but in practice it’s been incredibly lacking! I mean, when you look at the large number of romantic advances, they’ve heavily favored m/f pairings, m/m being basically painted as a joke, f/f being generally unrequited, Hussie making incredibly gross meta on the subject.
And then you get the new kids tossed into the mix, each one introducing us in the boldest terms possible how incredibly het they are? Man, Homestuck is hella heteronormative. It’s given little more than tiny scraps to indicate otherwise.

Without doubt, making a joke out of sexuality apart from “the norm” is certainly as bad as jokes about alcoholism and abuse, but at least alcoholism and abuse are present in the story to hate.
tbh i can’t help wondering if maybe you don’t really understand what the word “heteronormativity” means? because nothing in the context of how you’re using it in your reblog here seems to indicate that you do
reports of my return are somewhat exaggerated. i’m still really bad at managing multiple social networking platforms, but i do try to poke my head in on occasion? o:
