Character: Elphaba Thropp
Appears in: Wicked (both book and musical)
Commonly Interpreted as: Straight/Lesbian
But Really: She’s bi. Despite having a regular monthly affair with an old school mate Fiyero, Elphaba also has an implied relationship with Glinda. Elphaba and Glinda share a bed on the trip towards the Emerald City. The memory of it is so strong that even years afterwards Glinda still remembers it quite clearly, while forgetting everything else about the trip. Elphaba is often referred to by Glinda by the affectionate nickname “Elphie” and they share two separate goodbye kisses.
The musical chooses to focus more on Elphaba’s love of Fiyero (Glinda’s fiance) giving the illusion that Elphaba is straight. But it also also includes multiple moments of a subtextual relationship between both women, which has caused many of the fandom to see her as straight or a lesbian.
However her bisexuality is both partially confirmed by the author and supported by various actresses who have played Glinda and Elphaba’s roles.
Thank you, askkakuro for this submission.
As most of you probably know, someone somewhere dumped a deluge of purported nude photographs of a number of female celebrities online yesterday. The victims include the likes of Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Kirsten Dunst, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Krysten Ritter, Yvonne Strahovski, and Teresa Palmer. But the focal point for this story has been Hunger Games/American Hustle actress Jennifer Lawrence, since the Oscar winning actress is perhaps the most famous actress on the planet right now. Without going into sordid details ( Justice and Grande have claimed their respective photos are fake, others have confirmed they are real), I’d like to make two very specific points. Ms. Lawrence and the other victims have absolutely nothing to apologize for in terms of the contents of the photos or the nature in which they were leaked. The story itself should not be addressed as if it were a scandal, but rather what it is: A sex crime involving theft of personal property and the exploitation of the female body.
Outlets as mainstream as People and CNN are referring to the photo leak as a “scandal.” All due respect, it’s not a scandal. The actresses and musicians involved did nothing immoral or legally wrong by choosing to take nude pictures of themselves and put them on their personal cell phones. You may argue, without any intended malice, that it may be unwise in this day-and-age to put nude pictures of yourself on a cell phone which can be act and/or stolen. But without discounting that statement, the issue is that these women have the absolute right and privilege to put whatever they want on their cell phones with the expectation that said contents will remain private or exclusive to whomever is permitted to see them just like their male peers. The burden of moral guilt is on the people who stole said property and on those who chose to consume said stolen property for titillation and/or sexual gratification.

I like the plant! :D It looks something like a Kalanchoe
I have no idea what it is, but I’m pretty sure it begins with a C because all of our plants did and we gave them names that begin with C. It’s also in our dining room now and dying slightly :(
Re: your "rule about naked people" -- How about people who take nude photos of themselves not be stupid and use storage devices that can be hacked, like cloud storage (or take any risks close to that)? Just HOW much personal responsibility does your generation need to shed before you get it through your thick skulls that it only costs $20 for a decent external hard drive these days? :|
