Yeah all of that is gay both in and out of Japan. Why are people always trying to say “oh no that’s not gay you just don’t understand the different culture, nothing in Japan is ever gay, it’s just platonic in a way you wouldn’t understand”? That ain’t true. A lot of anime has pretty gay undertones in a way that isn’t realistically accepted otherwise in Japan’s culture, kind of like how characters speak in outrageous ways or behave in outrageous manners. In this way it can show or endorse certain behaviours that Japanese society does not always otherwise support.
A more accurate representation of Japan’s reaction to this kind of stuff is not “It’s not gay, it’s totally straight-o”, but “Oh yeah it’s pretty gay BUT IT’S NOT LIKE IT COUNTS THEY’RE GONNA GROW OUT OF THAT”. Weird how people try to talk about cultural differences but then analyse it using their own culture’s understanding of sexuality. Japan has its own kind of heteronormativity; it’s not like our “NO HOMO” but more like “sure, homo, but only as a hobby, not a profession”. They understand that it’s pretty gay but have a normative expectation that these characters will eventually grow out of said behaviour or that their interest in women is otherwise temporary. Saying “it’s not gay in Japan, you just don’t understand” is inaccurate.
But that’s based on manga/anime in general; more specifically, other shows have characters thinking that other girls are pretty, etc. but not to the degree that Sailor Moon does.
Sailor Moon is an INCREDIBLY gay series and you’d better believe that Naoko knew what she was doing.
I think you’re misunderstanding the point of that post, though (which also was not my post, I just reblogged it). It wasn’t so much to say “Usagi is 100% gay as proved by these actions here” but that “this behaviour and narrative is very queer-friendly and that’s cool”. Nobody’s saying that Usagi is gay just because she thinks Rei is hot. It’s not a black-and-white thing. It’s an open discussion of non-binary sexuality.
Something isn’t straight just because it’s considered “normal” in that culture. It’s pretty gay to be able to express attraction to a member of the same sex, and that’s cool.
Come on now.
