Id Dicere Debeo

"Id Dicere Debeo"
"I Need to Say It"

Seriously, shouting "homophobia" to suggestions that Rainbow Dash isn't necessarily "obviously a lesbian" is itself homophobic.

The charge is problematic because it equates sexual orientation with a certain set of behaviors associated with gay stereotypes that are not exactly flattering.

Rainbow Dash's sexual orientation is going to be what it is despite her "obviousness gayness."

And given the strong characterization of the characters in the show (including Rainbow Dash's), I would hate to make judgments like that based on harmful stereotypes.

But! When it comes to Steven Magnet, well, he is just fabulous!

Well said.

Too often, I come across commenters on LGBT-centric sites (particularly Joe. My. God.) who declare that this or that person are obviously gay because of this or that physical or behavioral characteristic (especially concerning Michele Bachmann’s husband). This is just astounding to me. You would think LGBT folks, of all people, would know better than to stoop to such stupid stereotyping.

For crying out loud, people.
