I'm very new to Sentinels, having spotted it while volunteering for a booth at GaymerX a couple weeks ago. I met the creators hi guys! Remember me? My wife and I were at a table next to you all weekend! We did pick up a copy of Enhanced Edition, and got it signed by two of them!
From lesbian heroine to devoted wife: or, what the stage would allow.
Acknowledgement of the female-initiated active sexuality and sexualized activity of lesbians has the potential to reopen a space in which straight women as well as lesbians can exercise self-determined pleasure. This article deals mainly with films that do not depict lesbianism explicitly, but employ or provide sites for lesbian intervention. I chose these films based on my interest in the lesbian viewer, and how her relation to films with covert lesbian content resembles her positioning in society. I use the term "hypothetical" to indicate that neither the character's lesbianism nor her heroism is an obvious fact of the films. I articulate a lesbian aesthetic that is subjective but not idiosyncratic.
