As someone who "dares" to call Lexa a bottom, I just gotta say, it's pretty annoying that whether Lexa is a top or not is a point of contention among Clexas. That goes for both sides, no one gets to dictate how someone else perceives a character to be. Thankfully, I dont see people fighting over this very often but when I do it really irks me. Sorry to rant, I have a feeling you didn't mean what you said in the same way that I took it but this has bothered me for awhile now.
The point I was trying to make to that anon was that we all see things differently. We all will view a character and in our mind perceive them in whatever way fits our preferences, desires, etc. That however anyone else feels, we shouldn’t let that dictate our own feelings and narrative. That no one, including myself, is out here trying to intentionally hurt another with our views.
I mentioned the bit about how I see Lexa in order to show that anon that I was in the same corner as they were as far as her character. That I get those same feelings and discomforts that they do whenever someone, as I said before, dares to call Lexa a bottom. I get that anxiety. I get that little tick of disdain just like they do. I confessed that as a way of showing them that their feelings were valid. That no one has the right to dictate that for them or make them feel lesser for it.
Just like how I get the battle over such things might bother you. But people aren’t disputing over it for no reason. We all have our reasons for feeling how we do. For me and that anon, we see ourselves in Lexa. And we are not bottoms. So for us, Lexa will never be a bottom. And that is okay. It’s our narrative. We’re valid for feeling that.
The difference we did have, however, was in regards to Alicia’s character. They see Lexa and Alicia as the same person. I do not, I see them separately, therefore I can call Alicia a bottom without calling Lexa one too. That anon couldn’t separate the two, which I understood, and I would never invalidate them for feeling that way.
Sorry for my rant, but I wanna make sure my statements are clear and aren’t taken out of context.
