[aziz ansari voice] :D
you know what makes me happy
seeing people headcanoning their fictional characters to have traits that make them feel better represented (in terms of race, gender, sexuality, self expression, ect)
you know what would make me happier?
if fans didn’t need to do that so much because they were actually getting widespread representation with fun and interesting characters
REMEMBER THAT PART IN THE ODYSSEY WHEN ODYSEUS TOLD POLYTHEMUS THE CYCLOPS HIS NAME WAS NOBODY AND THEN HE STABBED HIM IN THE EYE WITH A GIANT STICK AND HE STARTED SCREAMING AND THE OTHER CYCLOPS YELLED FROM THEIR CAVES AND ASKED WHAT WAS GOING ON AND POLYTHEMUS SAID THAT NOBODY HAS HURT HIM AND THEY WERE LIKE WELL THEN SHUT THE FUCK UP
But for real.
i hope when im like 80 pokemon will still be a thing so that i can battle and victoriously wreck my grandchildren reminding them who the ultimate trainer truly is
