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.

Thoughts?

need more manhomos

im being "trolled" huh

I think you need a bit more than two examples if you want to talk about over-representation.
>>
>>78822174
Korra as well obviously
>>
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.

>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.

OK hoss
>>
>>78822305

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.
>>
>>78822386
>he's done manhomo jokes.
Since when?
>>
>>78822386
Yeah but you get fags like Dobson who has an obvious lesbian fetish but he tries to pass it off as being progressive. He only started watching Korra and SU because of the dykes.
>>
>>78822399

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.
>>
>>78822337
>>These two dudes and cartoons evolved seperately and are completely unrelated to each other
>Adventure Time and Steven Universe evolved separately
>It's only too much representation when it's all contained within one series
how can one person be so wrong
>>
I don't really think it's a problem.
It's shitty writing (like Korra and Asami suddenly turning bi with no reason) that matters, not the fact that they did... If that makes sense.
>>
>>78822425
There's a picture of Hirsch in his wild college days sitting on the lap of a dude who looks like Soos and kissing him.
>>
>over-representation
Nah

>>78820605
Im more curious as to why /sug/ is banned outside of bomb weeks
>>
>>78822460
Show.

like someone said, it's writing that matters, not the homo. Steven Universe makes sense. AT kind of makes sense, as exes. Korrasami makes none.
>>
>>78822487
It's not anymore, actually.
>>
>>78820605
lesbians are easier to get acceptance than gay males
because males love looking at lesbians but gays disgust them
>>
>>78822643
it's literally because only mansex is expressly forbidden by the bible; nobody back then thought females could lust for each other.
>>
>>78822678
because back then women didn't work and what was most important to them was finding a good provider
>>
>>78822708
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

so nothing has changed?
>>
>>78820683
I agree>>78822460
picture PLEASE.
>>
>>78823093
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.

maybe not in your country
>>
>>78823261
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.

was it ever confirm that Marcy and PB use to be a couple? I was picking up that these two might have been more than friends but it never been admitted that they were
>>
>>78823317
It's word of god but they're never going to get back together, at least not on the show.
>>
>>78822487
letting threads and generals run rampant is basically what created /vg/ and /mlp/ not to mention Frozen. limiting threads helps prevent fanbases from getting too cancerous.

Lesbians aren't overrepresented in general, they're just overrepresented in comparison to gays.
>>
I'll never understand the trend of c᠎ucks 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 c᠎uckshed.
>>
>>78823338
>It's word of god but they're never going to get back together,
wait when did i miss this? when did they admit it or this fan shipping?
>>
>>78823371
If Bryke really wanted to be progressive they would've included Zukaang, if not in the cartoon then at least in the comics.
>>
>>78823379
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.

In which show are 2 female BBFs, that aren't lesbians?
>>
>>78823525
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

>>78823575

>Queer
Wait what?
>>
>>78823584
He was so happy to see Finn alive, it must mean he wants the bbc!
>>
I'm just hoping the total over-saturation comes soon so nobody will want to make any more lesbian characters because it's a shitty cliché that marks you as a bad writer.
>>
>>78822487
look what happened to Homestuck between updates. /sug/ is already well on its way there.
>>
>>78823047
And yet it's all /co/ ever fucking talks about. Lesbians this, lesbians that. I'm sick of lesbian shit.
>>
>>78823634
>>>/y/
>>
>>78823584
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.
>>
>>78822386
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.
