His crime is now canon
When no one was looking, Lex Luthor
took forty cakes. He took 40 cakes.

So in the comics Hawkeye has 80% hearing loss.

I should have realized I was asexual when I was watching videos of my favorite (male) kpop band and kept thinking “wow they’re SO beautiful and gorgeous!! *__* ” but not in the sense of “wow they’re so hot I wanna have their children/sleep with them!” but “wow they’re so pretty I can’t with their gorgeous faces I wanna draw them/have their pics on my wall/have tiny versions of them so I could stare at the beauty. Like pretty flowers”.
The fact that Terry Pratchett doesn’t stop at metaphors for representation. A lot of fantasy writers or series think they can pull that shit, like, ‘oh, the discrimination against (fantasy race) is an important social allegory, but let’s not have any actual POC in the books.’
Terry Pratchett writes about ethnic tensions between dwarves and trolls, yeah, but he doesn’t stop there, because hey, let’s talk about real racism. He writes about dwarves discovering themselves outside of a monogender world, but he doesn’t stop there, because hey, let’s have some real queers! He writes about vampires giving up blood and living by the pledge of temperance, but he doesn’t stop there, because hey, let’s have an actual alcoholic who manages to overcome his addiction and then kick a- prod buttock in every direction known to mankind and then some.
