jennifer fucking lawrence doesn’t think that bisexual women can have sex with men or have kids, and then referred to bisexuality as a “lesbian phase”
but she said that she likes food! shes so quirky and relatable you cant criticize her! she makes funny faces sometimes! did i mention she likes food!
WOW THAT MEANS WE CAN’T LIKE SOMEONE FOR HAVING A FUCKING OPINION. FUCK YOU SHUT THE FUCK UPHAHA BECAUSE PERPETUATIG IGNORANT, HARMFUL IDEAS ABOUT MY SEXUALITY IS JUST AN OPINION HAHA IT’S NOT LIKE IT’S BIGOTRY THAT HAS MADE MY LIFE HELL OH WAIT IT IS
always good to source things! the article in question is in the internet archives it was an interview done for malibu magazine about her role as mystique
I suggest that in the original comics Mystique was written as a lesbian, to which Lawrence counters, “No! That’s the first time I’ve heard that. She has kids, she has night crawlers, and she sleeps with Magneto!” And then she jokes, “Unless I’m completely wrong, I mean, she is 100 years old, she definitely had time for a lesbian phase.”
that’s right friends
Jim Carrey thinks that violent films and video games encourage violent behavior. That’s my hobbies and life basically being generalised via a harmful stereotype by one of my favourite comedians, same as this supposedly does.
But fixed that does not come by throwing vitriol at them. It comes by developing your opposing viewpoint and educating people. Plenty of your favourite people in the world have attitudes and viewpoints that you disagree with, I can assure you.
And if I may have a personal disagreement with the attitude here, are you representing the viewpoint that people, characters, ANYONE, cannot have a “phase” in their life as they discover themselves, as you claim Lawrence represents an idea that people cannot? That’s one of the most basic things about people as they grow up. Sure, discounting a popular character in comics existence as a kind of bisexual icon as a phase isn’t okay. But this is her interpretation of a character she’s playing in her own form. Mystique’s entire existence in X-Men First Class at least was about a character discovering her identity. “Mutant and Proud”. It’s her being proud of herself for who she is, but she needs to know who she is first. Mystique in the films is very different from her self in the comics, so if that is how her version of the character ends up panning out? Then okay. It’s not ideal, but okay. The X-Men are more or less the greatest LGBTQ representation in superheros at the moment. This will hopefully expand as time passes, but for now, we place stock in what we have.
No, Lawrence’s comments on the comics self is not great, but that’s a result of her ignorance of the comics lore and more modern, pragmatic mindset. And how do we solve ignorance, people? Education. I am mostly playing devils advocate here, but I do object to bringing down the fire on ignorance when the intent is obviously not bigotry as it stands.
