If you really want to get mad at "pandering", get mad at Disney. Get mad at Marvel. Call them out for performing the bare minimum of LGBT allyship in order to keep their LGBT audience while keeping it minor enough to appease homophobes. THAT'S pandering. Not a gay man drawing a gay couple in a comic because he's making the representation that he wants to see and that he knows other people want. I'd be more willing to believe that if I had actually ever seen anyone ever get mad about straight representation in Transformers. Because that has never, ever happened. I'd actually be willing to bet money on the fact that had it been a straight kiss instead of a gay one in this comic, you wouldn't have said a peep about pandering to the straights. Did you get mad about Optimus/Elita in the WFC Trilogy? Does the sight of a male and female robot holding hands send you into conniptions? Be honest. Because the fact that you only wring your hands and whine about pandering when a gay couple appears in Transformers and stay totally quiet about the straight ones (and only claim that you'd get mad about straight couples after you've already gotten mad about gay ones) is pretty fucking sus, tbh. Did you hurt your knees jumping to conclusions that hard? You must have torn a muscle or something. For god's sake, just get over it. Gay characters exist. Deal with it and read something else if you really dislike that so much.
