Shameless Challenge: Favorite Gallagher

can we just talk about queer representation in always sunny because this is really important to me

  • main gay character who isn’t stereotypical
  • main asexual character who isn’t aromantic and who also isn’t some emotionless blub
  • main bisexual character (only confirmed in interviews but you don’t need to pay much attention to see dennis is queer as shit)
  • did you catch that? i repeat, 3/5, a majority of the leads, are queer, dang
  • recurring transsexual character who, despite being the butt of some jokes, is consistently shown to have a successful happy life (and whose treatment improves with each appearance, showing that the writers strive to avoid being transphobic despite writing characters who very much are transphobic)
  • the recurring trans character and her husband (did i mention they were an interracial couple? that’s rad too) become parents and there are no jokes/comments about how they’re unfit to raise a kid
  • there are a number of one-off queer characters who are rarely if ever made to be the joke; the jokes always swing back to calling out the protagonists on their poor treatment of said characters
  • tl;dr: it’s always sunny in philadelphia has a hella queer set of respectfully-written characters and utilizes these characters to comment on homophobic/transphobic culture rather than on “lol the gays”


you know when you have such a burning dislike for a certain character like the level of dislike you have for them is so high and seeing them makes you feel annoyed and you try to ignore it and move on because they are just a fictional character and how strongly you dislike them feels ridiculous because you know they aren’t real but then you see their face or hear about them again and it’s just like


there you are
