I use pronounced and I haven't had my nap today, so I like a little like. You know, we'll see how it goes. I just know I was thinking like boss baby with a baby's like a boss and an adult. You just have like that. I haven't had my nap today. How am I supposed to find the status quo of the quota if I have had my nap yet? You actually want to fucking have those reports? I haven't even had my nap yet and then you took it with my fucking binky. Like, what do you want for me? How do I remoresend company? Literally just in a company. I'm literally in a good hi, my name is Jackson and I'm making the mistake of going through so many years of schooling. Hey, swag only make one's tragic, but I'll make it. I'll make two hundred k a year. Good for you, bessie worth. Put at what cost my mental health? Yeah, exactly, that's what you're going to pay in like you're fucking FARC bill. They just make you liked blining. Well, my students, my mental health goes down to this dame degree, Jesus Ah Hi, I'm summoned. I use all pronouns and I'm working on my crest pants. He left forgot my I think none of us had a phone, is, except for someone I know, Jesse overy said though them. Yeah, Jackson Uses Hee them for nuns. I use all pronouns. Um, I'm ripping my cress pants right now. I think you huh, what go on? Suck my Dick. I'm working on my cross pants as we speak. I never said there was any issue with that. I just mom and Daut of fighting again. You just saying he's my grandfather.

...got. You always assume the worth in me, when really most of the time it's bad, but sometimes I'm good. That is exactly how I feel, like yeah, where, where the fuck? You fucking right. No, I didn't know that. Yeah, right, like couldn't tell my personality drinks. So I have a ton of stickers in my laptop, as you do. Most of them are like gay, but there's one and it's a little alien, and then he's like working and thing on the bottom. This is let's get weird. It's my favorite one. I love so much. So I had to take my meter to the apple store on Saturday to get a new battery because my battery stopped working, and the poor guy that was like checking out my dew Peter. He was looking at me with the face of what the fuck am I looking at? And did you look back at him like fuck you. Well, I'm like, I know I'm being judged right now and it's completely fair, but at the same time, like, are you judge in the alien as you judging the Gay Stingers? Like, probably, probably, both. Probably, both. Probably. We all know that if you're homophobic, you also hate aliens. So where can the aliens find us? On social media, because they're not homophobic. Oh my God, Um, that's a sentence I didn't think I'd today. Yo, y'all can find us on Instagram at House of cards underscore podcast, on twitter at lgbt underscore deck and on Tick Tock as house of cards podcast. We're good, really good at transition. Oh, yeah, just let you should have heard my you in here last time, right. Yes, no, you should have. You had my transition. I did amazing and everyone else so bad. It was so good. They're always good. What bad? Like comically bad? No, no, it was about so dogs are men, right, just men are dogs, flower browns are gay. If you put a flower crown on a dog, you get a gay man. I mean eights. comically bad, because we're talking about the eighth kept at epidemic, and exactly that's why it's bad. No, but the dogs in flower crown one makes sense. No, no, but flower crowns and dogs. That...

...makes sense. Yeah, that makes sense. But how did you wiggle in fucking eight? Gay Men always have eight. That's just the not just literally last episode. We disagree with that. No, it was because we mostly talked about the homosexual side of the issue. Because, no, it wasn't a baby. It might have been. Yeah, it was the baby. Now it what? Wait, I need to check my text with my exboyfriend. That why did yeah, it was it was a baby. It was a baby. Yeah, you're the baby. He was a soundcloud rapper. He was like really into that whole thing. He agreed with the baby as well. That's why I broke up with him, hadn't you? You never told me that part. Oh yeah, there are so many reasons why I broke up with him. anyways, you just told me you were bad. I'll that too. I mean honestly good, like he's like a bad guy like that was not okay. And speaking of bad guys, really elish. We're here to talk about Jesus Christ, I'll Lord and Savior, Amen. So thin out. Jest is better transitions than Jackson. Anyways, Yo, this I'm kicking Jo, I'm kicking. Just just get out, just get up, just just get out. All right, I was making a different joke, but okay, oh my God, it's a multi level joke. Yeah, it's like anym just still get out. I was about to say, like, I have all the power here. I he was here. Here's the thing. I have all the power here. I leave in the at end. The episodes don't go out. I mean yeah, because, because, because none of you have asked for the past word to get into the the thing, to post the episodes. That just could easily have edited it and posted as well. But yeah, none of you have been like hey, the password. I don't even know. They're saying. Do you guys want the Password? Um, no, you know, Jackson, like right now. YEA, No, no, I'm actually about to announce me leaving the pot. Well, that's no, Jesus Christ. Let's not get into that then. Just go ahead. What we talked about drama, which is also a villain thing. But, you know, go on with the vibe on today, and of course, is always the very gay vibe that have going on. That's why we're here. That what we do today. This was by suggestion for doming. Today we're going to be talking about queer coating, specifically queer coating with villains. So what exactly is queer coating?...

We're coding is defined as subtextual coading of a character. India, as Queer, oftentimes is character such bad sexuality is never explicitly conferred, which leaves room for speculation. We're coding has been around since one thousand nine hundred and thirty, with the Hayes Code was established. This code restrictive trails, restricted portrayals of homosexuality, Unida media, which forced hidden inclusivity with a character. Audit were. Coding is usually harmless. However, back in precoding it just began. It was often the villains which were created with homosexual subjects. Common traits include hyper masculinity or femininity, hypersexuality, proper stomic snobbish personality traits and, of course, wearing or produce painting and items which typically belonged to the opposite sex. Yes, in quotations we don't get there, quote we don't. So yeah, today we've all chosen pretty famously queer coding dawns to talk about, to give you a better idea of how easily career coded is implemented. So let's find out which Americ child had villains were secretly queer and said shed some light on this micro homophobia, just like a micro penis. And well, Fustie, I'm the one with the MICROPEDAS here. Hollo ha ha. Anyway, Popal lamelady say, I've never seen this movie. Really all right and bruising groove either of I know you're talking about the we're doing a watch party right now. Right now. How do you pronounce her name? He'sa Ye's my Yisma, who is described as another kras medic. Can't be fucking what the fuck of an a caricature, fucking procure prep cappy character of an aging diva. You Zee, yes, he's asthma, he's not. Yeah, I thought you. Those often compared to having the same kind of what the fuckus Boisterous Puss personalitia and as moved forward to as a not unlikely to sorry, my hus been referred to as not unlikely to imagine, as reflecting a drake Qing, and its accredited to am masculine care actor. Also, she seems like someone that would kiss a woman as hell. She's homophobic. No, hear me out, she's she's gay, but she's probably biphobia. Oh yeah, yeah, she's like Homophobius, but only two words, like...

...men exactly. Anyway, the MC youth that I have, I have, I have other things, but the mcuth annos has been accredited to loving no one and nothing, and it's interpreted as ace Arrow because of his inability to love, as well as one frankly hilarious twitter complicate complaint, compilation, compulation, I don't know, I'm not really plain fling a completely hilarious wouldn't complaint that. Thanos is a single man with a bunch of adopted children and therefore is gave freeing, traditionally feminine in Racing. I feel and the world. If what is Sano's in an aprond with mitting gloves, with a bunch of children, call you all over him. Oh my God, I raising your kids is gay? Raising your kids is that's what I'm gonna do. Also, I have this idea that like, he's not incapable of love, he just chooses not to. or it's like he, you know, he's Arrowace, he just does not have those feelings, which is valid as far he's like you know. But also the other one. We talked about this, but we boycotted it because, you know, the random author who none of us know, who wrote Harry Potter. Yeah, Voldi, voldemort, the vault, the what the one who may not be named, is like? I was also thinking our race, because I know, obviously no a sexual no, no, a section, no sexual or romantic attraction. But then like avery and light to me being like yeah, no, that was like I'm Papa's and I'm like, fucking strikes again. But also I I've come to the conclusion that all arrowace people are just going to take over the world. That's just yeah, when you don't have romantic or sexual attraction. You have the time to take over the world. That's all. I yeah, Avery's like. Listen, I don't know, worried about the gay attender. You're worried about the wrong LGDT. It was that like. Well, all of you are honey as fuck. I'm out here killing won't leavers, finding the Nucleo code and his right to bomb every single world leader, because we here invading countries because we were too honty to do and thing. I would be so powerful anyway, powerful with romantic and sexual attraction. After Stephen King's Pennywise, who is my Lord and Savior, Daddy, Amen. Well, Kim would let him eat me out, not Stephen King pennywise anyway. ANYWAYS, not Stephen King, you know, just completely face gone move it to...

...look at. Stephen King has the habit of including Mike aggressions into his novels that come across as provoting gay men, Oh Gay APPs, which is disgusting. Not all of us up over, its just my neighbor. Why anyone, aside from being shipped with but Donka, Dog Baba Doc. They're both gay. I don't know how the Internet it's I actually know the story behind that? I don't think. Yeah, it was like, Um, the BABBADOCK got put into the LGBT section for no reason. On that. Yeah, anyway, pennywise is a queer coded as a shape shifter, which is interpreted as someone who is transgender or Lgbtq plus affiliated, as many of the shape shifters in media such pop culture have been aimed to represent. Cough, cough, the random atha of Harry Potter, Aka the the Satanist, or self, not bit, not be named, bitch, you should not be naked because, basically, I don't know how common knowledge of this is, but she came out on twitter and link anthrope was a metaphor for AIDS salute. Yeah, it's like, yeah, this super like traditional, like a old things existence for billions of years. You're baking transphobia out of it. Out, guys, guys. So, guys. It just confronts that loopin is gay and was in love a serious he also came wolf. They just had eight together, true, literally, literally. Um, I also want to say I was rooting for pennywise during the movie. I'm like, okay, I can't doing well, and then he killed my favorite little gay boy. Wait, who's the little gay boy he killed. The second movie, the random a Porson. Oh Yo, weak man, dude, that was a whole. So the gas he killed the other gay one actually based off real events. That scene really that's a you know, be morrify, like they met the story. I thought you meant like Hey, oh my God, which one of you did? I see it too, with clouds. Even Gay. Yeah, me and a Resong, yesn't eire, yes and Eli were there too. I think, Oh, yeah, yeah, so I lost the dude. I was crying it. I would I picked the wrong day to see that movie. What's his face? died at the end.

Spoilers. When the anyway? Oh Yeah, boilers. Yeah, dude, that killed me. Yeah, that was like okay, so this is how we're starting on here. Know, the one that Ritchie was in love with. Eddie said it three times. I lost my shit. We left the theater and I was sobbing. I was like fucking mess. Wait, wait, guys, can we talk about I didn't even realize this, but like so stanley like killed, you know, himself. Yeah, because because, like you thought, like his fears would put them all in danger. HMM. He overcame his fear and doing that. What his fear was diet. So so he were able to kill because he over came a spear of dying by dying for his friends. So if you don't, probably wouldn't. Would they probably would have failed. Yeah, that is so morbid. What the fuck? They could have given him a different character arc. HMM. Yeah, this is a horror story. anyways, own some Moan with the name I am about to say is a goddess, George Washington. Oh wait, no, when the pad the coin, who is canonically bisexual in DC comics, was not only stripped of her bisexuality and suicide squad much of her bisexuality as well, as I'm not saying that word in suicide squad, is used as a way not only to sexualize her but also reinforced queerness as evil and Villainists, which is the point of all queried, coded villains, whether intentional or not. anyways. Yeah, so like Harley Quinn is not portrayed as fruity in any movies, and it's like it's so bad, and then they just make her into like the like man Pixie Dream Girl thing, which is grosser. It's pray. They actually they did very well with her character. Oh that is so true, or praise so good, like that is for praying, like the subtle peer of queerness. Like they weren't like in your face like get, but it was very obvious. Birds of praise, the female case, anyways, like Ga Zeddi. anyways. Okay, Captain Hook, Captain Hook. What cannot be said about Captain Hook? He is extremely reliant on Schmidt, who is straight up fruity, like I think it's confirmed. Oh yeah, phonemically, anyways, canonically, no, said, friendy thing is confirmed phnonically. Yeah, name I've ever heard? Yeah,...

Shem is literally like the equivalent of Moss. That's the same thing. Um, okay, and he's extremely flamboyant and Sassy, and his hooks have been interpreted, interpreted, to symbolize fell like power, which which basically means that Captain Hook is a top. That's that's horrible. Okay, Oh shit, gross. I love some one, some one you such kind of like a reading the next pot and knock even away. What his best okay, I hate this, anyways, stuff. This is so much worse. His preoccupation with Peter Pan can be interpreted to suggest that Captain Hook is not only gay but also a pedophile, which kind of like showcases the fact that most queer coding is to villainize Queer people, which, listen, we do crimes and what not. Villains, yeah, unless you're avery. Then you'll plinded to take over the world like, you know, be gay, do crime. But like we're not all fucking villains, like hope. Some of us are normal, some of us just want to come in ARCS. And you know, I would last so hard if we all were like contacted by like authorities. WE'RE gonna get I hope so, only for lucky. You know how funny that would be, like calling my mom being like hey, mom, I've been arresting me for my podcast. Oh your mom, that shit. Anyway, I'll be like you were taking pictures of me in a jail cell and frame it. You wouldn't mel out my mug shot for Christmas cards. Oh my God, that's amazing. All Right, okay, the last character are going to talk about is maleficent, which isn't, you know, extremely obvious, unless you look at her, unless you look at her, look a look at her. She's one of the original like Queer coded villains that O G Lesbian. She just like she's represented as unfeminine and like kind of a fucking like that bitch and sharp features, in a masculine build and like a bad bitch personality, which apparently equates to being fruity, I mean in dude, and her horns, power, and her horns, which are unfortunately also associated with Salik power, which basically means she's a top. Excellently done, some great job. You did amazing. Yeah, me too. That's...

...exactly what they meant by the Balik power. Yeah, you cannot change my mind. Oh, definitely didn't really curse a baby because they didn't invite her to like a party. Like, yeah, dude, that's gay as hell. I'm back. No, you're just petty. I'm yeah, that's gay, the pettiest ever ever. Have like beef with me or something, prepared to like have me never let it go. Okay, okay, they all be like, well, that's not why this happened. Like, Bro, we were all over this. I perfect bower. Anyways, moving on, actually, things on. Scar in the Lion King, you like down, like we all new. We all yeah, we all knew. Yeah, so, scar and the liking, he's SASS. See, he is. Quote. Unquote draggy. He is hip swaying, noticeably slimmer than move fought on Simba, where the line symbols of masculinity. Scar is much more dramatic and has more defining facial features like eyebrows cheek bones, which are features more prominently featured on female characters. Not only is he a quote unquote, bitchy old queen, literally got SLAMP wrist. If you look like at any frame of him in that movie, there is no like constraint to those his his his hand is bent over and it is bent over with parpoise. Yeah, it is Um. And then Haiti's my personal favorite. He is one of the most obviously queer coded Disney villains. His whole character is a is Sassy Bitch, dramatized fatial expressions and mannerisms. He's literally like Disney took the stereotype of the gay best friend, and that is haities. Oh, you especially like with his little like clippled with Megra, yes, when she's like Herculeas, he's a good guy. And then Hayes. It was like yeah, but he's a guy exactly like that. Give up literally fucking. I would not. I swear Jackson has literally said like they same thing. Oh, what the fuck did you guys say that? You are said they will suck. Same thing to me. Your Hey, you're seven, like, I hate men. They suck. What do you expect from me? Exactly, point more, I'm going. You know what I'm fuck, hello, where he go? Flee, I said, fuck you go on. Oh,...

...you cut out. Yeah, we heard fuck. Yeah, I honestly I thought that you like left the color something. I was like, that's Fuckin power. Move Yeah, because you're recording it too. So moving on. One of the literal worst weer folded villains in cinematic history, in any history, just the worst cinematic choice in the fucking world across the multiverse, was Laura Wilson from Ace Ventura at detective. Y'All fucking knew I had to bring this up. What Laura Wilson, throughout the movie, is so pased as some sort of like sexual goddess, like she is very flirtatious, she's constantly flirting with the men around her. And then at the end of the movie, when it's revealed that she's the villain, Ace Bentura like pants her and reals that she is transgender. What? Yeah, so like they literally made it into a punch line, because then so like many men that like have been attracted to her or that she's had like relationships with, they like they throw up. It is literally like it. It is so fucked up, like it is blatantly transphobic, and it's also like it literally it is. It's a kids movie. She's like it turns her into like this some sort of Predator and disgusting and turns her into a punch line. Then again reinforces that queerness is evil. Yeah, yeah, it fucking sucks. So she, we made it, gets assaulted because she gets fucking pass by a chil old, gets out it and then like then she's called a villain, like what, what the fuck? Yeah, like, so much hate. Oh much hate that, so much me too, um. But yeah, I mean, like, honestly, a lot of these examples are like pretty harmless ones. That fucking sucks like that. Yeah, but it just shows you like how easy it is for those things to slip in. That's so common that it's like yeah, of course, like this would make sense. You would pay attention to it, unless you were like lgbt yourself and like you were actively leaving for it. Yeah, but one of the most famously queer CODED VILLAINS IS THE POWERFUL SEA Queen Self Ursula, who's yours. All you...

...work directly inspired by a real life drag been named divine. So Ursula is a real like person and it's a drag Quean that. I love that for her. Oh, I love that. As well as making hersel look weird, her obsession of being useful and beautiful makes her quite cruel and sharp tongue. So she's she a Babish. She Ain't here to play. Also, What's interesting is she presents interested men, which would be like, okay, so they're presenting her straight, but they're presenting her as a drag queen. So they're presenting her as a gay man, a basically turning himself into a woman to trick a straight man into dating them. That's the whole thing, because she like wants to like be like have legs and beat sexy and stuff. Oh, I hate that, which is first of all, you don't need likes to be sexy. True, that was a weird as I just said, but I stand by my point by seconds. The bad guy is Jaffar from the Laddin, one of my personal favorites. Jafar, spurt makeup and sharp gestures are all clear indications of feminization. Every other male character wears pants, even the fucking genie, who doesn't even have legs. However, Jafar seems to have treated slacks, but this tree seems have treated the slacks for skirt, which honestly suits him better anyways. And he has eyeliner and lipstick on the whole movie he was forcibly feminized, but he looked good doing as true he did. He did his eyeliner point and we that's just something that we have to accept. Wait, I never noticed he was wearing eyeliner. The phone, not like. Look at pictures of him and his eyelighter is baropling this. It's just so natural. I guess. Another skirt wearing villain is James, half of the duo Doo Jesse James, the latter from the long running, wellknown animate pokmon. This is also funny because my name is Gussie and my best friend his name is James. He wouldn't go as Jesse James for Halloween. This be but I just thought that was fun. Oh my God has winged eyeliner. Brohood James is seen countless times dressed in short skirts, tight dresses and braw lets. Furthermore, in his back story, James Ran away from his plan, had to reset your wedding and live the rest of his life's and outcast, before meeting jess, your brother, of course. Yeah, that's never intended to have their villains be so iconic, but honestly, I relate to James and more than a few ways, and I love it he got to have the team released a little bit of representation, even if it was beliness, facts, hardcore facts, so like the essay that avery is probably writing right now. Sorry, I just put you a blaster being in I just hit you pretty English major getting puberty for...

...the fifteen time anyway. In conclusion, when you're homophobic and you try to make a villain gay, but, I said, you make a hot, lovable and Kinnabal character by so many people in this FEC vca, this video call voice cob whatever the fuck it's called. Holly Quinn, can shut up, but they these character what I'm the villain. Yeah, yeah, that's a in short, nope, Shit missed a line. These forgotten and even though they are micro homophobia, except for that, like what's that? Laura wheel, send one. So I've never that's straight up track. That's just phobia. That's TRANSPHOBIC, helphobic, Alphobic, at Racaphobia too. But in short, be gay, do crimes just like the rest of these characters, and remember everyone is a bad as fuck, unless you killed people. Then you're just valid. Yeah, no, I actually had I actually had something else to at. So while I was like doing some googling and stuff for this, I came across a two hundred thirty five page dissertation on Queerness and Villainy and animated Disney films. Can you send it to me? I add it is called unmasking the Quillan, spelt q you illl aim, weirdness and villainy and animated Disney films, and it is a thesis that was submitted for the award of the degree doctor in philosophy. Someone won't wrote a two hundred thirty five page on applying queer theory to Disney founds, for they're like doctorate in philosophy and I adore that. That's so funny. You can one hundred percent fucking bet I will be reading this for fun. Yeah, I hope so. That stuff I want to do when I go into ploy like this is exactly what I'm talked about when I say, like yes, philosophy. Am I going to change my major again? Oh my God, do it. Do it. Wait, what do you need, like grade wise to get philosophy? O, F I. O. I can Google that right now. Right now I'm sitting out of fifty percent average. Oh my God,...

...you need more than that. Well, I'm literally taking the bare minimum, like the bare minimum for classes, and then art and foods. Okay, give me, and then pull of thirty level for wars or whatever. Yeah, extra math or anything. You do need English one, though. I am taking curty thirty one. I think it's your pried for like every almost everything. You need high S, English, thirty in languages, Language Act One, three approved courses, which could be social, bio, can physic. Yeah, I could definitely do that, you know, like if I wanted to and appraise my great yeah, I could totally do that if too. Yeah, that's my plan was and I'm going to do a minor in psychology, valid, so I'm going to be an EMT. Oh my God, I wanted to do that so bad, but then I realize that you have to be like fit dude, okay, you have to be able to lift a hundred and fifty pounds, and I'm like, okay, shit, I need to figure this out. Thank you so much for coming to today's episode. I really hope you enjoyed it and I hope that we could see you next week, but if not, have good rest your life. Take a bath, kill a Porson, do whatever you feel like. Any do not kill a person. It's anything else we need to add valid as fuck. I'm embroidering tiny frog cool, so foking, cute. It's so gay is thank you, STA.
