Came home from watching Sharknado (both of them, one after the other, it was quite an experience) and found the stray cat we’ve been feeding sitting on our driveway, meowing. He came up to me and I ended up sitting and petting him for like twenty minutes. Then my mom and sister (confused from hearing the garage door go up but then not seeing or hearing me come in) came out and lured him inside where he walked around, meowed, rubbed his head on a catnip sachet, and went back outside where he meowed some more. Mom realized he was hungry and gave him a tin of cat food which he promptly inhaled, after which he scooted out into the garage to sit under the car.
All this between 1am and now. I think we have a new cat.
There’s something particularly elusive about bisexual male characters. There is a deeply ingrained misconception that a man can’t be romantically involved with another man and still be interested in women as well. It’s centered on the idea that masculinity requires a wanting, and “getting” of women, and not men. But the depiction of Constantine in Hellblazer proves that is a false assumption.
Despite what the producers of the show appear to think about the importance of the character’s sexuality, in the comics it gives Constantine’s character depth, develops his story line, and frankly, makes him more than just another non-descript straight, white male. Media representation of minority groups is incredibly important. Fiction or not, media portrayals of minority groups help the general public acknowledge, relate to, and humanize a group they might not interact with in their day-to-day lives. It helps young bi youth see themselves on television; it helps people understand that us bi guys are really not that different, and sometimes, even if just in comic books, it helps us see that you don’t have to be straight to kick (demon) ass. —
