Over-representation of lesbians might be happening in this era of cartoons, but it's hardly a force.
Steven universe lesbians is integral to the alien nature of gems and gem society, its a classic move that was used by the old pulp science fiction writers -"It's a matriarchy planet!"
Adventure time lesbians was just a happy accident of a writer realizing that the only two sane thousand year old characters in a setting would have some history.
Lesbians are frequent because either
1. Creators want to shill homosexuality and lesbians cause way less outrage than gay men will (Rebecca Sugar, Alex Hirsch almost)
2. Creators want to act like they are shilling homosexuality for progressive points but dislike gay men and find lesbians sexy. (Bryke, probably Dobson if he ever actually made anything relevant)
I'd guess that Hirsch was the second type but he's biscum so I don't think he dislikes faggots.
>Dude creates a cartoon, decides to put a lesbian couple in it
>Other dude creates a cartoon and decides to put a lesbian couple in it
>These two dudes and cartoons evolved seperately and are completely unrelated to each other
>People whine on the internet that there's too much lesbian representation anyway
It's only too much representation when it's all contained within one series. One of those webcomics with a dozen characters that are all coincidentally gay for example.
>claims over representation
>only cites two shows
Rebecca Sugar is either a huge lesbo or a bi who's basically a lesbo and this is her Utena fanfic. It's lesbo because she likes dykes and lesbo porn.
Hrisch, you mean that one old couple that might have been in the background? That barely counts and he's done manhomo jokes. Plus lots of the male characters seem gay as fuck so.
Most other creators are dudes who think girl on girl is hot so more their private fap fantasies than a progressive agenda I think.
I don't remember the exact line but Soos and Stan were in the car alone together and Stan says 'this is getting weird" and there was some weird tension.

how can one person be so wrong
Tbf that's not entirely true though, life was incredibly shitty for everyone back then and lots of women did work alongside the husband and little kids slaving away in the fields or whatever, life sucked for everyone basically. Work work work
>two or three shows out of thousands
Yes, things have changed.
People don't die from simple infections anymore and children are not roped into field work.
How active women are depends entirely on the era and culture.
Japan used to be more open to female workers, for example. They would work in a mine with the entire family, covered in nothing but mud, but they were not shooed out of their jobs at 30.
Generally, women working has been an expression of dire necessity.
What is more representative of how much status women hold is ownership of land and housing.
Although in developed states this can be obscured by super-rich outliers on the male side. As well as taxation laws, although those preclude the general ability and acceptability of women to have ownership over things.
Of course, only in such countries as are not stuck in a past age.
And I am not counting people who die from infections despite adequate treatment just because they are too old and frail.
Lesbians aren't overrepresented in general, they're just overrepresented in comparison to gays.
I'll never understand the trend of cucks obsessing over lesbians à la /u/. I guess it has something to do with being so incredibly pathetic that you can't even self-insert in your own damn fantasies and would prefer standing in the proverbial cuckshed.
If Bryke really wanted to be progressive they would've included Zukaang, if not in the cartoon then at least in the comics.
They hinted at it so heavily, if you haven't noticed, you might want to have your eyes checked for boulders.
2 chicks > 1 chick, 1 bloke.
It's not hard to get, conceptually.
The first few episodes make it obvious that the wimpy "get em" guy (the one that becomes mayor later) lusts after Wendy's lumberjack dad. Then the joke turned into just saying "get _____" to everyone for some reason.
Recently it's happening with men too
>"Is Disney trying to set up Poe Dameron as the first queer SW character?"
Makes me wonder what would've happened if the LotR trilogy was released only now
It's great. Basically the theory is that Poe is queer because JJ Abrams is only capable of rehashing the OT and they need a love triangle between Rey, Finn, and Poe except that instead of Rey being the focal point it will be Finn so JJ can score progressive points.
This, probably if not for all the kinds of limitations put on them: demographics, producers, reaction from homoesexuals themselves lots of these shows would turn into huge 2D lesbian orgies. I mean, the internet finds these characters hot, so I doubt the creators don't. Rebecca Sugar admitted she ships her characters and draws fan art of these ships (if you can call them fan art at all).
I mean just look at japanese mangaka. Lots of them start out by drawing doujinshi and a lot of it yaoi/yuri. Female creators especially tend to draw gay doujins. Probably when we get more female creators and directors in the industry we might start seeing more gay characters.
If they're pandering to anything it's not to tumblr or feminists like /pol/spiracy theorists would like to believe, it's to their own sexual fantasies.
Post more cool Marcie pics like that, all I've got is lewd ones and semi-lewd ones.
