Hi, pals! Are you watching Batwoman? You don’t have to be, of course. But I watched the first couple of episodes the other night and like have you SEEN how gay she is? Kate Kane is the kind of butch person that makes me yelp a little yelp, out loud, when I see them clomp across my television screen in their Docs. And Kate Kane in leather and flannel rescuing her ex-girlfriend? IT’S A LOT.
Sometimes I wonder – how would things have been different, if I’d seen a superhero like that on a teen show in the year 2000, when I was in high school? Who would I have become? What would my life have been?
I asked this, out loud, on Twitter, and, well, someone answered. (Shared with permission!)
I’m fifteen. We’ll see. Assuming it’s gonna rule.💖
