But Ross tosses out the information casually, like any other fact about himself, suggesting to the audience that this knowledge isn’t a great revelation—not because Ross is the most dapper man in the Hamptons, but because bisexuality is not a big deal.

That kind of message is especially necessary right now, because despite some improvements in quantity and quality of bisexual male characters on TV, it still seems far more shocking for a man to be bisexual than for a man to be gay.

Why? In 2013, a straight male audience is more likely to understand that gay men don’t choose to be gay, but still can’t seem to grapple with why a bisexual man would choose to sleep with another man rather than a woman.

The Atlantic: Bisexuality on TV

Additionally, as Eidelson theorized, some male viewers may be more threatened by the concept of bisexual men than homosexual men because it essentially defies heteronormativity in a different way than homosexuality does.

Yes, yes, yes! Thank you

Challenges a lot of heteronormative assertions about sexual attraction being essential, too. (via thecarapherneliacrisis)

BLOGGING THIS AGAIN

NOLAN ROSS 4LIFE

But Nolan is not dapper didn’t we decide that his outfits were a joke?

(via flirtingwithparadox)

Yes, we did. He’s totally mocking the rich Hamptonites with his style choices. Precious snarky genderfucky openly bisexual bb! (squish)

I <3 Nolan. 

(via monanotlisa)

I still want Nolan and Emily to be together in the end, but I hear he just got with that blond guy who was the Arrow on Smallville and Wade’s brother in Hart of Dixie. (Yes, I watch too much telly.)

(He’s definitely mocking everyone with that outfit. But he can also work it, evidently.)

… I should catch up on Revenge.

Hey there, good-lookin’. And shirtless Nolan ain’t bad either.

Super excited for Revenge to come back. Super excited for them to keep looking at each other like that and doin’ crime.

ofsevenseas asked:

Is this related to the Teen Wolf creators/cast tweeting finale spoilers? (Sorry this happened to you, btw, spoilers can suck.)

No, ‘tisn’t. Like I said, I like spoilers. I am the Spoiler Queen. I think ‘this stuff will happen!’ is exciting so I am always pleased to be told.

I was linked to a Teen Wolf interview where a certain lady and a certain dude I liked together were declared to be chemistryless and I was sad, especially as the exact same thing happened with Revenge. 

'Stuff *won't* happen' isn't exciting, I think is my conclusion. Tell me stuff that *will* happen all the livelong.

And so by this logic I can remain the Spoiler Queen! And rule forever over my kingdom Spoilandia.

Creators Need To Quit Telling Me Stuff!

Oh, how darkly ironic this post is. I am the Spoiler Queen: I never care when a plot development or a death or anything is spoiled for me, and I am always spoiling them for others.

But I don’t want people to tell me whether characters will or won’t get together. I wouldn’t dream of telling anyone that about my books.

I like to sit around wanting people to be together! I went to the X-Files movie SEVERAL TIMES hoping that damn bee wouldn’t sting her and they would kiss. (It’s possible my grasp on how movies work is not, you know, as firm as it could be.) I like to HOPE and WONDER and watch the developments with interest. It’s possible I won’t even care about the destination (I sure didn’t with the X-Files, I wandered right off eventually) but I enjoy the journey. 

It’s about the journey: I read a ton of romance novels not because I don’t basically know who’ll get together, but because I wish for the journey. And to be able to KEEP HOPE ALIVE. Telling people ‘you are not going to get the thing you want’ seems counterproductive to me.

Which is a long way of saying: Quit it, Revenge and Teen Wolf. Quit it! Stop telling me: you only sadden me by so doing.

… yes I suppose I could avoid all creator commentary but I think creator commentary is interestin’ (obviously since I… make it all the time…) and anyway I have no impulse control.
