I feel like someone’s come up with this theory but
hussie explicitly said that the race of the characters doesn’t matter
if you don’t think that matters now this is just a reminder that we are reading homestuck here
EVERYTHING hussie says matters
somebody had the theory that “trickster mode” means that you are literally breaking the game (due to the [CTRL + T] command present on many of the flash games)
the fact that Jane has been assigned a skin tone means that the game is breaking further
this is why Jake is so shocked
there was never supposed to be race in Sburb
The “gay” debate can be interpreted in several ways. Whatever Dirk’s sexuality, he doesn’t like it being described in such “antediluvian terms”. This suggests one of the following:
- Dirk is expressing his dislike for simple labels (by which I mean he believes sexuality is more complicated than that)
- The world no longer sees gay/straight. The Batterwitch has made it so humans consider sexuality in the same way as trolls did; irrelevant.
I believe given the evidence it’s likely that the second interpretation is correct. This would mean that the humans (or perhaps just the four kids) are aware of how Earth used to be. It would also mean that the Batterwitch has already effected how the world works, and Jane is blind to it.
Also… to join in the sexuality debate, I believe this means that Dirk is pansexual in the same way that the trolls are. Which I think was already obvious, so it isn’t really all that big a deal!
I’m actually totally into this theory.
