‘enjolras was presumably straight’
don’t u try it
he is only presumably straight because les mis was written in the 19th century and if hugo had written a gay character he probably would have ended up like oscar wilde or some shit.
so basically hugo would have had to make it as subtle but glaringly obvious as possible
and i’m sorry but are all the likenings to gay ancient greeks not good enough to you?
is his not knowing a thing such as woman not good enough for you?
come on what more proof do you expect from a book written in a time period where homosexuality was really really really extremely frowned upon.
Let me count the ways in which this is wrong:
Here is your “yes, please, click that read more” of the morning with a side of “gee, I love how everyone is always arguing two points of sexuality and mostly only use ace as a fall-back when they feel like their personal ship defenses are weakening.” Which is not a statement of attack on the read more by any means. It’s just my way of say that its too early in the goddamned morning for me to properly express my appreciation for some proper historical argument and also someone who understands that literary references can in fact just be literary references without actually being meant to aid or assist your sexual labeling.
This has been your grumpy ace dude for the morning.
