… soooooooooo where could I find this fic?
The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.
YO ANON WHO SAID THAT IT WAS REASONABLE TO SAY FOUR BISEXUALS IN A FANTASY SERIES ARE TOTALLY UNREALISTIC, THIS ONE IS FOR YOU.
IT SHOULDN’T BE UNREALISTIC.
WE NEED BETTER REPRESENTATION. NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT TO START.
"1. Dragons ... 12. horned people." All of these things are parts of the premise. It is established through the basic understanding of Sci-Fi / Fantasy. Everybody I meet being coincidentally bi is strange because it's not to be normally expected and the setting gives no indication for it. So yes, in a way, dragons are more "realistic" than just running into all the bi people in town. Because they are to be expected from the get go. (b4 you cry bi-phobia, I am pan myself)
Clearly you need to read better fantasy with better representation in them, I’m just saying. ( /hugs Swordspoint tightly to my chest and never lets it go.)
Also, I’m gonna have to reiterate. Not everyone in the whole game is bi.
Four people. Four people out of literally every person you meet is confirmed as bisexual.
Yes all those four happened to be love interests, but that doesn’t change that again it’s just four people. Well, okay, five people. That elf in the brothel hits on you and offers you a freebie no matter what. And Aveline, Varric, Bethany AND Carver could all theoretically be bisexual as well! Nothing states that they aren’t, and let’s not make the mistake of assuming that Unstated Sexuality = Heterosexual. Sebastian is straight but he’s also Sebastian and I don’t think anyone wants to count him in their corner, we won’t hold it against the heterosexuals.
Additionally, fantasy as a whole genre I think rests to hard on the laurels set down by Tolkien. We need more innovation in a world that could theoretically be whatever we want, and yet we have people going “Blu blu blu it’s so unrealistic to have this one minor thing that happens in real life break the mold my precious baby mind can’t hand it waaaaa waaaaa waaaa”
Clearly loopy o’clock wasn’t the right time to answer asks but i’ll forget about it if I put it aside. In closing: I don’t actually know four STRAIGHT PEOPLE so that’s an unrealistic number of heterosexuals in a story for me. Also, five. Five. Four if you only count significant lines. Let’s say four and a half.
