but guys, you realize Morgan Freeman had to read those lines
LOOK AT THE GUY HOLDING THE MICROPHONE
I think this is interesting because despite people making a big flappy scene about home taping killing record industry profits, the record industry is still making enormous profits - and they’re making a big flappy scene about torrenting. Same old, same old.
smoo told me to draw zutara week stuff so instead i drew some modern au gaang. sorry for my shitty handwriting.
Sam in the army being forced to keep quiet about his sexuality for fear of being dishonorably discharged.
His job is incredibly important to him, he feels so strongly about saving lives, and he’s proud of the excellence and the teamwork it takes, and he’s proud that, in the face of all the set-backs he’s faced, that he’s respected as one of the best.
But it hurts to hide who he is: Sam came out to Riley when he realized it was safe to trust him: (Riley mentioned his brother was trans and challenged a guy who was making anti-gay jokes)
But he doesn’t feel able to call people out the way Riley can: he has too much at stake. He doesn’t have the privilege of being an “ally,” he has to make sure he’s not outed, make sure the other guys don’t have a reason to hate him; to sabotage him or mess things up for him out of spite.
The fact that he loves women- that he has a girlfriend- doesn’t lessen the hurt he feels one bit; he’s not hiding half of himself, he’s hiding his whole identity.
So he hears people using slurs; making homophobic remarks, and he looks the other way. People talking about DADT-
“Why do they have to flaunt their sexuality anyway? This isn’t the place for that. What do they want? To be able to walk around a military base in a dress and heels? Tchhhh.”
And Riley argues passionately about it- bringing up his brother, civil rights, talking about a gay friend back home…
And Sam stays quiet, or else he makes one of his famous jokes that gets everyone laughing and changes the subject; crisis averted.
He’s good at that. Humor.
When he gets out of the army, that’s what he loves the most: the freedom. Yeah, no one is giving him orders, but also no one is making him hide who he is. He’s not looking over his shoulder, no wondering if someone is gonna suspect-
He’s bisexual. Flaunt it? You bet he does. Sometimes he feels like if he could shake the hand of every person he met and say “Hi my name is Sam Wilson, and I’m an openly bisexual man, pleased to meet you-” he would.
He’s even started a group specifically for lgbtq+ veterans and he doesn’t specifically bring it up to Steve (doesn’t wanna assume; god knows he may be projecting) but the flyers are visible at the VA, with his name listed clearly as the contact.
Proudly bisexual Sam Wilson.
