The creators have already made it. It exists, intentionally. (Check out this instagram post by the story boarder of Sky Witch. ) They simply have to be subtle about it because, like you said, they do have to cater to the bigoted portion of their viewership.
Adventure time will probably end before executives will feel comfortable having a female lead in a “kids’ show” be ultra overtly openly gay. Our society has the unfortunate misconception that kids can’t handle knowing about people being gay.
Why is this? Because the adults making these decisions can only think about gay people in a sexual context. They can think about straight people without thinking about sex, but the thought of a gay person immediately makes them think of that person’s private time, and they cannot separate their thoughts from what they think their kids will think. It is an unacknowledged and widely accepted double-standard.
Despite my sexy fanart, I think the ladies should not be depicted sexually in the show, but they should be depicted as having a crush, or being girlfriends. Kids can handle PG romance just fine, no matter what the orientation. With adventure time, we are allllmost there, and I’m hoping that the fandom’s support will be good step towards normalizing gay characters in cartoons.
The best we can hope for is a continuation of the beautiful, subtle writing of the ladies and maybe, MAYBE, a word-of-god admission from one of the creators/writers that, ‘Yes, they were gay,” after the whole show is over.
Also, it would be nice if Ryan North would cut it out. That’s a rant for another day, though.
Two Brooklyn cops sideswiped a parked SUV, then arrested a man sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle, accusing him of damaging their car, a suit charges.
And the officers would have gotten away with their lie — had the whole bizarre drama not been caught by a security camera.
Robert Jackson, 31, told The Post his nightmare began when a police car heading the wrong way on one-way Watkins Street in Brownsville scraped against a parked Ford Explorer, which belongs to his girlfriend.
Jackson, a maintenance worker, said he was sitting in the legally parked car outside of his apartment when the accident happened. He got out of the vehicle and walked up to the officers.
“I was smiling, like, ‘How’d you run into me?’ ” he recalled. “Then the cop said, ‘Dude, you ran into me.’ ”
“I just wanted them to fix the damage and apologize, but it didn’t turn out that way,” Jackson said. “They were trying to cover it up.”
At that point, things got even more surreal.
The two cops checked the block for surveillance cameras before arresting him for destruction of city property, according to the lawsuit filed by Jackson in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
“When they thought no cameras were on. I saw their gloves go on, and that’s when I was arrested,” Jackson said.
But fortunately for Jackson, the officers, Christopher Oliver and Shazad Shigri, missed one camera on the home of one of his neighbors, Jackson said.
In case you were ever wondering just how flagrant the NYPD is
The app store gives you a description of the app right under the “purchase/install” button. He knew what he was doing. He knew.

THIS WAS BY FAR THE BEST BEYONCE IMPERSONATION I’VE SEEN.
Do you think bubbline will eventually become accepted enough for the creators to allow it's existence rather than cater to bigot viewers?
As close as you will ever be to a nuclear explosion
No thank you.

I knew I saved this photo for a reason
quimmiq is the inuktituk word for the canadian eskimo dog (canis familiaris borealis), which after four thousand years in canada’s arctic faces imminent extinction, in large part due to a policy of eradication by the royal canadian mounted police meant to force the inuit into government settlement. brian ladoon, whose dogs we see here near churchill, manitoba, has been breeding quimmiq for over forty years and is largely responsible for maintaining the species.
so it was with much trepidation that brian noticed a group of polar bears, who eat quimmiq, approaching his dogs one day in 1992. though most of his dogs became quite defensive, one of them playfully ventured up to a polar bear and the two got on like old firends. every year since, the polar bears will stop by ladoon’s place to play with the dogs on their way to the newly iced over hudson bay.
these photos were taken by famed arctic photographer norbert rosing, who just happened to be with brian on that day in 1992. the canadian eskimo dog is still on the verge of extinction, with estimates of three hundred or less left. "the last dogs of winter" is a 2011 documentary on brian ladoon’s efforts

No really. Watch this.

It even makes the coin noises.

The problem with that, beyond the inherent sexism of it, is that there’s no real legal way to make women justify themselves, besides maybe making them sign a piece of paper that says, “I’m sorry I was a naughty girl who had sex. Can I please have my abortion now?” Roe v Wade sets things like time limits and Planned Parenthood v Casey says that there can be no “undue burden” to access, but the court decisions that shape abortion law don’t speak to “good” vs. “bad” reasons to have abortions, and for good reason. Abortion is medical treatment. It goes against basic medical ethics to require a patient to argue their moral worth before they are permitted access to health care they require.
