Queer subtext in media is nice and all, but have you considered:
- Including actual queer characters instead of vague metaphors for queer characters.

↳ Artemisia Gentileschi (1593–1656)
A baroque painter and follower of Caravaggio, Gentileschi is widely held to be the most important and accomplished woman artist before the modern period and one of the great artists of the Italian Baroque.
While the few woman painters of the time were largely restricted to domestic scenes and still lifes, Artemisia began, from a young age, to paint large-scale paintings of historical and religious subjects. Her most appreciated works nowadays display Caravaggesque use of chiaroscuro and high drama.
Some of her most famous paintings reflect her interest in depicting mythic-heroic women. These works have been described as proto-feministic in their depictions of their female subjects and in their subversion of the representations of these women typically found in male contemporaries’ works.
Originally tutored by her father, Orazio Gentileschi, Artemisia was raped as a young woman by a friend of her father’s, who had taken over her tutelage. During a high-profile trial in which Artemisia testified against her rapist, she was subjected to humiliation and torture in order to ‘prove’ her claims. Critics have often tied these events in her own life into Gentileschi’s work as an artist, seeing her images of female vengeance, violence and strength as a cathartic and therapeutic representation of Artemisia’s anger and trauma.
Peter takes a job as a Junior High Science teacher. The pay isn’t great and the hours are long but he enjoys his job, students and the school immensely the only problem is that Tony feels his son is squandering his potential as a teacher when he could be working alongside his father at Stark Industries

Yup, not everyone can do it. You shouldn’t make fun of people who can’t do it, because many of us (myself included) can’t do it because of a disability.
Remember, not all disabilities are visible. You don’t need to ask “are you disabled?” before you throw something to someone to catch, but doing the gesture where you’re about to throw something and then saying “catch!!!” and immediately throwing it is definitely not enough. Pause for a moment and make sure they seem comfortable with that idea and are holding their hands out like they want to play catch.
I say this because I am really frustrated by people throwing something at me and it ends up hitting me. It’s really not nice. Then there’s those lovely incidents when people throw me a piece of food they want me to try. I won’t go off topic by saying how rude it is to throw food at someone even if they CAN catch it, but I definitely can’t catch it. If someone wants to throw a piece of food at me, they might as well throw it directly on the ground… or in the trash.
In fact, that’s actually a good general rule. If you don’t want something to hit the ground, don’t toss it to someone.
This isn’t nursery school, so it shouldn’t be necessary for me to tell everyone to avoid throwing food and objects at people, but it’s something I deal with constantly. Even if you’re three feet away from me when you toss me your keys or whatever, I can’t catch them and they’re just going to stab me, and it’s not nice!!!
Anyway, thanks. This has been a PSA. I just would really appreciate it if it wasn’t the norm for people to toss shit to people and then berate them when they don’t catch it. Not everyone CAN.
