Outside shows where everyone is gay, such characters are almost never the protagonist, and Kieren, more rarely still, is canonically bisexual. Beside an ambiguous connection with undead bon vivant Amy, both his romantic interests have been men to date, but Mitchell – understanding perhaps that same-sex pairings are for some of us the default – doesn’t bend over backwards to shoehorn a straight encounter in. His lead’s bisexuality doesn’t need to be proven, and is superbly handled, neither fetishised nor sensational. Kieren isn’t another gender-blind sex fiend like Jack Harkness, Oberyn Martell or Sherlock‘s Irene Adler, nor a depraved Bad Bisexual like Tony Stonem, Faith or John Hart. In fact, his quietness makes him one of television’s first bi characters to have the texture of a real person.

Every time I post something about Norman Reedus and it gets reblogged you fangirls just gotta swoon and add your own cutesy caption. Nothing against fangirls but here’s a challenge. Swoon over this! Good luck.

moniquill:

OP, it is clear that you have a fundamental misunderstanding of one or more of the following:

‘fangirls’

‘swooning’

‘challenge’

I mean we could probably use this as a really interesting launching point for the fundamental disconnect between ‘what people actually find hot’ and ‘what society/patriarchy presumes is hot’ and how the assignations of gender roles and sexuality fuck with that. Like the presumption that the female gaze doesn’t even exist, or if it does that women-intersted-in-men find the same things about men sexy that men-interested-in-women presume they do/should.

I mean, how many ‘porn for straight women’ magazines have tried to launch and asked a bunch of straight women what they wanted in porn -and gotten answers of ‘smiling dudes’ ‘dudes giving bedroom eyes’ and ‘cock’ - only to then said ‘yeah no, we’re giving you tough,aloof-looking shirtless guys with power muscles and weapons instead (because regardless of what any of you say you want we know that the majority of you want tough looking guys with power muscles and weapons because that’s what masculinity is because sexiness is feminine-coded. I mean obviously the only reason a man would display in a sexually-inviting way (as opposed to an aggressive way or a disinterested way) is if he’s trying to attract a man! Ergo anything in which a man is display in a sexually inviting or (gasp) submissive way is gay gay gay gay gay and thus the anti-masculine and no woman would ever want it. We know better than you what you like and want and find sexy) and then failed and blamed the failure on the totally legit and well known phenomenon that women just don’t get off on visual stimuli they’d rather read erotica.

But I’m too busy getting off on images like the above.

REBLOGGING THIS AGAIN BECAUSE NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE APPRECIATED THE AMAZING IDEA OF ASEXUAL MULDER.

  • Jessica:

    is asexual Mulder a thing because it should be

  • Carrie:

    oh MAN

  • Carrie:

    he just watches all the porn because he Doesn’t Get It

  • Jessica:

    yeah like, it interests him

  • Carrie:

    he routinely falls asleep to it because it doesn’t do anything for him, so it’s just good ambient noise.

  • Jessica:

    and hilarious. i mean, porn scripts seem right up his alley

  • Carrie:

    ahahahaha yes

  • Carrie:

    he legitimately doesn’t understand why he should attempt a romantic relationship when the truth is out there.

  • Carrie:

    Like, priorities, people.

  • Jessica:

    like, he’s already got this bond with scully why would he need anything else

  • Jessica:

    which is why in that bodswap ep scully figures out whats up when “mulder” starts romancing her

  • Carrie:

    and hitting on Skinner’s secretary

  • Jessica:

    yeah

  • Carrie:

    ”the REAL Mulder would not invite a woman who isn’t me to his apartment”

  • Jessica:

    new favorite headcanon

  • Carrie:

    I am ALL ABOUT this

abaddonshark:

It is truly a strange thing when a steam pipe bursts under an abandoned building in the dead of winter, but that’s exactly what happened under the Clinic Building at Greystone Park State Hospital in 2007, a month before the building was unceremoniously knocked down.  The steam congregated near the ceiling of the abandoned asylum infirmary, condensing on the pipes and dripping down in regular patterns - and creating these ice stalagmites.  An hour after taking this photograph, demolition workers came into the building and chased us through the tunnels; we had to hide in an attic in 0 degree weather for hours while cops searched for us.  The next time I drove out there, there was no trace that a building had ever stood in this spot.
