    Default Queer Kitty Pryde

    I didn't want to put this in the Kitty/Colossus thread, since I thought it was interesting enough for its own discussion. I came across this piece on SyFy called "Why The Erasure of Kitty Pryde Matters."

    Some people in the comments seem to take offense to a queer Kitty, but I think it's pretty clear that Claremont had always written her with at least some same-sex leanings (as he's done with many of the X-Women). While never really explicit, you can tell she's had feelings for other girls like Illyana, Rachel, and Courtney Ross. I think the last time was with Shan in Mechanix. The author states that Claremont said in a podcast he had at one point intended for Rachel to be the love of Kitty's life. That's the first time I've heard of that, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's true.

    Iceman came out of the closet when his hints were nowhere near as blatant as Kitty's. Was it just hormonal teen confusion that she's grown out of or is there something more? Do you believe Kitty is or should be a queer/bi/lesbian character?

    I had come to think that it Claremont has stayed in the title, all the characters might have been revealed to be bisexual .

    As for Kitty, i never saw much queerness on her in the last few years, but i had seen some of her interactions with Illyana, that made me think that she is at least bi-curious.

    I stand corrected then .

    But honestly, i think that half of the Claremont X-Men team were at least bisexual.

    All Claremazons were at least bi if not absolute lesbians. He drove me nuts with dropping hints all the time.

    This. Is there a heroic female character he wrote for any length of time who wasn't teased as bi? It comes across more like a fetish than inclusiveness.

    Really gotta wonder why everyone's got to be grasping at every little straw that x character is bi or gay. Sometimes a character is just straight and the "signs" people are looking for are just the innate flamboyant nature of superhero comics.

    Word of the creator is hardly grasping at straws.

    Word of the creator applies to Kitty, but not so much for all the other characters people like to bring up.
