Quiz: Which Queer Cartoon “Villain” Are You?

One of my favorite things about being gay is how we often relate to cartoon villains more than cartoon heroes. Something about the binary of wholesome/deviant or something like that. Whatever the reason, I’m guessing you feel the same, so I made us a little quiz. I, um, took some liberties with some of the Disney villains, but if they’re gonna queer code all their baddies, that means we get to do what we want with them! As always, I would love to know your results!

  1. Choosing just one was SO hard for a lot of these questions, harder than usual. Why can’t I have both Nebula and Evil Willow as my sidekicks?

    I got Hades and I do feel pretty seen by this description:

    It’s the incompetency of “heroes” that really compels you to do things your own way.

  2. Poison Ivy!

    Also Miranda Priestly is not a villain NATE is the villain of The Devil Wears Prada. The crushing weight of your college boyfriend wanting to trap you around what he needs is the horror that can haunt us all.

  3. Ursula!

    “Yeah, that’s right, you’re the president of the Bad Girls Coven and you are not going to apologize for it.”

    Hell yeah. Happy to be a drag queen inspired villain trying to circumvent women from giving up their lives for milquetoast men.

  4. Lefou. I’d rather be Ursula, because she’s aquatic. But I guess she’s too commanding and ambitious to fit my personality.

    So it’s OK for queer people to love and relate to queer-coded fictional villains. (What about explicitly queer villains?) But is it OK for a disabled person to love and relate to a disabled fictional villain? I’ve been feeling ashamed of doing so, of condoning a portrayal that perpetuates harmful stereotypes, the sort that are condemned by other disabled people. Yet it seems queerness is different?
