Tom Hiddleston MAY BE cast for two episodes of DOCTOR WHO.
OH. MY. GOSH
I am freaking out.
We have been saying this should happen! AND NOW IT FINALLY IS!
Oh. My. Gosh!! ALSKFJALSKDFHLSJHLAJSDF
Yeah…I’m a bit excited.
So if you were in a class would you pick a random black guy and start openly discussing his heterosexual life style? That's what I think of when people bring up Loki's sexuality. They do it because he's "safe" and there are no repercussions (much like cosplay creep). I also love how no one considers that a confused gay kid reads these books and sees how the fans perceive homosexuality as a gay incest fetish.
What does analyzing a comic book character have to do with a “random black guy” in a hypothetical class…?
Or cosplay creeps?
Or confused gay children?
P.S. At no point in my article or video did I “fetishize” homosexuality. Or imply incest. Seriously, I’m so confused right now.
Loki is Bisexual?!
Is Loki really batting for both teams in February 2014? Wasn’t he married? Did he really turn into a chick onc— twi— a bunch of times? These answers and more in this brief history lesson/discussion about our favorite god of mischief!
Can’t take full credit for this one. Big thanks to the following users for helping me expand my thoughts on this topic in a constructive way:

Excellent dissection of both the comics and mythological roots of this characterization.
I think it can at least be definitively stated that Loki does what he wants, regardless of motive.
I’m totally okay with this, because just like with real people’s sexuality it doesn’t matter what the sexuality of a character is. I mean, I’m never gonna meet Loki and I’m never gonna sleep with him so…you know, why does the team he bats for matter to me?
But my rant, my rant is the idea this article brings up and reminds me of:
"Is Loki really batting for both teams in February 2014? Wasn’t he married?"
The whole weird thing people have about Bisexuality and marriage. My brother is bi and married to a man. But he is BI, however, people hear that he is married to a man and they assume that he is gay. I express that he is Bi, and they respond, “but he’s married to a man.”
My two friends just got married, they are both bi but they are a het couple. Are they now straight? No, they’re still bi, but then I hear, “but they’re a straight couple, they’re not bi.”
My cousin’s fiance is a bi female, but my cousin is straight male. She won’t magically stop finding women and men sexually attractive after their marriage, just as he won’t stop finding other women sexually attractive, because that’d be weird.
So what gives, why can’t people grasp the concept that when you’re bi you can fall in love with and commit to anyone and are not bound by attraction to only one gender/sex? And that that ability to find attraction in others does not end with commitment; in essence you aren’t “cured” of your bisexuality by “committing” to het or homosexual relationship, you’re still you.
No negative critique on this article at all, just some thoughts
Hey, thanks for reading my piece! <3 I completely agree with everything you said. I apologize if I worded things weird in that summary above— I didn’t actually mean to connect bisexuality with his marriage. I was just summarizing interesting points I brought up in the video, since it was a recap of his general history (“turning into chicks,” for example, which also has nothing to do with bisexuality).
I’ve always wanted to find a buddy and do the Tallest from Invader Zim. I’d want to do them right, though, so even though their costumes consist of simple shapes, it’d be a challenge… The facial prosthetics, especially, since I’d want to translate them into something more realistic and alien, instead of just boxy green heads. We’d need some wicked corsets and stilts, too, so the getups wouldn’t be comfortable.
But they would be awesome.

This is like the male version of those super sexy Kotobukiya statues. I approve.
