Some notable ambiguously queer characters include Hange Zoe from Attack on Titan, Meg from Family Guy, Shinji from Neon Genesis Evangelion, Master Cyclonis and Piper from Storm Hawks, and Sunset Shimmer from Equestria Girls. (2/2)

Show thread

For we're celebrating :flagProgress: and this week, it's characters.

The last of our types is the ambiguously queer character. They can range from borderline-coded to completely fan-interpreted. Sometimes they are intentional, other times it is coincidental. Tangentially, an ambiguous gender identity often serves as a vehicle for ambiguity. (1/2)

Why repost yesterday's toots? I published them as unlisted :mastodon_oops:

Other coded characters include: Marceline and Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time (later confirmed); Bugs Bunny; Ursula from The Little Mermaid; Korra and Asami (HEAVILY implied during the series' run); Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy (for a loooong time); and SpongeBob Squarepants. (3/3)

Show thread

Waylan Smithers from the Simpsons is one of the best known with his infatuation with his boss, Mr. Burns, the source of recurring jokes in earlier seasons. Smithers also exemplifies the progress made since the show's debut 30 years ago as in later seasons, he is out and living with a partner. (2/3)

Show thread

For we're celebrating :flagProgress: and this week, it's characters.

A category that is rapidly disappearing is the coded LGBTQ character; i.e. one who is hinted, alleged, and implied as queer but is never explicitly revealed as such during the series' run.

Some characters have later been revealed as queer either by the creator, as part of a reboot, or simply through changing definitions. (1/3)

Other characters that are unambiguously LGBTQ include: Utena & Anthy; Haruka Tenoh & Michiru Kaiou from Sailor Moon; numerous characters in She-Ra; the aforementioned John from 'Homer's Phobia'; Alucard from Castlevania; and Luz and Amity from The Owl House.
