why was the little boy upset
it was just sort of the first tag that popped into my mind?? i thought it deserved a warning, because whether it was intentional or not, they did mislabel lucy (and erase her sexuality in a sense???). if u want me to retag it with something more appropriate i can!!
[…] do not make the people out who enjoyed the movie to be bad people. just because it’s a “racist” movie, or “sexist” or what have you.
dont go into the frozen tag

so someone literally said lucy is a “canon bisexual character”.
no. just, no.
katie mcgrath specifically said in an interview that lucy is a lesbian. cole haddon, who created the show, said that lucy is a lesbian. literally everyone involved with the show has said that lucy is a lesbian.
i seriously cannot.
lucy westenra is not a canonically bisexual character in nbc’s dracula.
ok it seems I caused drama (again) this time by calling Lucy bisexual, excuse me for not reading every interview and being up-to-date with all the actors, I didn’t know Katie said Lucy was a lesbian, from only watching the show it’s not 100% clear if Lucy is a lesbian or bisexual
dr-cormier, do you have any sources on this? Lucy has expressed attraction to both men and women on this show, and as such I’m going to consider her bi until I get a source on that. My cursory Googling has turned up nothing.
Also, goddamn. The one even potentially bi character I’ve seen on any show I’ve been interested in recently and now you want to take her away from us? No. I will headcanon her as bisexual and nothing else.
[to be clear, i wasn’t expressively talking about fuckyesdracula, but rather the anon in that ask who specifically said that lucy was canonically bisexual.]
also, lol, you need sources? okay:
and i know cole haddon has tweeted more, but this is all i have favorited on twitter and i don’t think i need to post a dozen more of his tweets to make my point clear: she’s a lesbian. she is not bisexual.
lucy’s never actually expressed any sort of actual attraction to men. flirting with men =/= romantic or sexual interest in men. clearly she would need to flirt with men or make comments about men to keep up appearances — no different than lord laurent being all pointedly “LOOK I AM HOLDING MY WIFE’S — A WOMAN’S — HAND!!!”
but it doesn’t really matter because tptb have explicitly stated that lucy is a lesbian and that’s really all that matters …
… no different from say, cosima on orphan black. we’ve never seen her show any specific interest in men, sexually or romantically, but the actress and the writers/creators have said multiple times that cosima is bisexual. so people who call cosima a lesbian are wrong, just like people who call lucy bisexual are wrong. because that is not what they are.
feel free to headcanon lucy as whatever the fuck you want though, i can’t stop you from doing that. but saying lucy is “canonically bisexual” is just fucking incorrect and damn right i will call out anyone who says otherwise (just like i would for cosima’s sexuality).
also props to captainwestenra for this awesome response:
"Do people honestly think that if Lucy was attracted to men, we wouldn’t have seen her try to reconcile this, or see her relationship with Alistair explored? It’s not explored because it’s not part of her character. She is gay."
and ps, big shout out to alainaxhuffman, who responded to my post with "WHO THE FUCK CARES?" thanks for the insight.
Thank you for providing sources. I am that anon, as I later told in a response to fuckyesdracula. I read (past tense and present tense) Lucy as bisexual.
I’m disappointed that tptb have made her monosexual, to be honest. Here I was thinking that we might actually get a non-monosexual character.
Oh, and to those people that say things like “who cares?” I care. Goddamnit, I want people like me on a major American network TV show for a change. I operate in a fundamentally different way from monosexuals, and I want that represented.
you are welcome.
tbh, it looks as though jayne might actually be pan- or bisexual, so if it’s confirmed by tptb then there you go. unless you don’t like jayne, but i do, so i think it would be awesome for her to be bi.
