Star Crossed Lovers - Sailor Moon by Mostflogged Star Crossed Lovers - Sailor Moon by Mostflogged

I really can't even begin to express how important Uranus and Neptune are to me - growing up, they were the first time I saw a lesbian couple in a media that was accessible to me as a kid. not only that but they were FUCKING COOL, it wasn't dirty or shameful or gross the way you would usually here someone say "oh she's a lesbian" like it was this unfortunate disease, michiru and haruka were bad ass and all the other girls loved them. Their relationship was passionate and insanely romantic, it wasn't there for men's entertainment, it wasn't this unknown background noise that took the creator years after the show ended to admit, it was OBVIOUS. even as a kid I knew they were a couple (tbh I thought it was weird cousins were dating each other lmao), it was a shining beacon of hope that are relationships between women could be just as intense and meaningful and GOOD as a relationship between a man and a woman. it was the first time I saw this was even an option - if you're not a woman you might not fully understand HOW MUCH you get beaten over the head from the second you're born with GET MARRIED HAVE KIDS FIND A MAN - which, is bad even for non-gay women, deriving self worth from our ability to get a husband/have kids is a terrible thing to instill in girls, but that's what's done in this culture - but for gay girls it just seems like this hopeless inevitability because as a kid you aren't SHOWN that there are other options - so when sailor moon season 3 started airing in the 90's and had this BEAUTIFUL, COOL, STRONG lesbian couple who absolutely loved each other it was totally unforgettable. I still cry when i think about it, because even now I'm hard pressed to think of lesbian couples that don't end in tragedy. Haruka and Michiru were the ultimate cheeseball, Till Death Do Us Part Complete Each Other romance, which for straight couples are everywhere, but for lesbians and gay men doesn't really exist. I'm very very grateful to sailor moon for showing a generation SO many types of women and female relationships, including a romantic one.

thank you so much Bunny for doing this shoot with me even though it was cold and wet, thank you Lionel for making our BEAUTIFUL props, and thank you so much adam and Nicole for shooting us!!! 🙏🏼💗💕💕

This is so magnificent! And you are incredibly right. As I have gotten older I feel lots of respect for gay/lesbian couples and I love Michiru and Haruka very much. They are a wondrous form of romance. Very gorgeous!

I always liked this couple, good cosplay of them. They were not 'cousins' as the edited American version of this anime would try to have you believe. Haha who did they think they were fooling?!

I shouldn't have phrased it like that, I meant no offense! I just think that it was a missed opportunity to show that two strong women can love each other instead of a guy. Kind of a cool concept. But, the American world of anime wasn't quite ready yet. :) Either way, only girls can be Sailor Senshi, so if that's not a shout out to girl power I don't know what is!

Do you remember the Italian dub where the Starlights called on their sisters rather than transforming into women?

I'm serious, growing up with the English dub got me confused. As soon as I rewatched it in Japanese, everything just clicked and made sense. It seemed so natural and actually really freaking awesome.

I used to be and still am a huge fan of Gargoyles, and I remember the same sort of thing happening there too. It wasn't until after the show ended that the creator revealed that Lexington was gay. Disney censored out that aspect of him from the story. I guess in a serious show full of dark mature themes where people were hurt and killed two boys kissing was too much. Damn censors are stupid.

I think its absurd how few same-sex romances there are in kid-friendly shows. Like its somehow not good for children or something. Well, that's a bunch of nonsense right there.

Gay people need rolemodels too, especially when they're growing up. I just hope that things change for the better in the future regarding this subject.

When I was a kid, I saw that show in french and they dubbed Uranus with a guy to censor the fact that they was lesbian :( It was very weird to watch that :c

I love that shot very much :heart:

So they'd rather have Uranus as a crossdressig guy rather than a gay person who loves someone? That's censorship for you...
