When I first started college I wore my LGBTQ button on my book bag with conviction but now I wear it with shame because a bisexual college girl has become a cliche.
My closet has many rooms.
I am tired of being questioned by professors if I am gay because most of my protagonists are. I am tired of my boyfriend suggesting we have a threesome because we would both enjoy it.

To my boyfriend, I am tired of proving my commitment to you. To my gay friends, I am sorry I didn’t fight the same battle as you. To my fellow bisexual college girls, be proud. To my mother,

No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?
“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute - she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”
