I’d say it’s a little of Column A, little of Column B. A lot of SU’s online cred was lost after the hype backlash struck, specifically after Bismuth, Uncle Andy and especially Concrete. Even after trying to get back in their good graces, the show was still a far cry from the progressive darling it was during it’s peak, outpaced by shows like She Ra and Craig of the Creek.Second, it's even more apparent when you realize that Rebecca created an entire character based around said concept (Sunstone) and even made them a key character in one of Future's episodes.
I personally like to think that she was kind of forced into a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation so after Tumblr's section of the SU fandom went apeshit over LGBTQ+ representation. On the other hand, I'm starting to agree with what a lot of people are saying about the 2016 election just straight-up destroying the already-fragile sanity of everyone in Hollywood and SoCal.
On the other hand, I do believe Sugar did buy into the hype people were heaping on her, if her little speech about Never Again is anything to go by. If anything, 2016 broke the fans and the staff.
This just makes that Stevonnie pic Sugar drew all the more patronizing.A good chunk of intersex people typically pick whether or not they want to consider themselves male or female. Most intersex people don't even want people to know they are intersex and are most confident categorizing themselves in the 2-gender rule. This girl I knew in high school was classified as intersex and was perfectly content to identify as a woman seeing how she resembled a woman more and mostly developed female sex characteristics.
Basically what I'm trying to say is that just because you're intersex doesn't mean you automatically have to identify as a tumblr-tard or nonbinary or whatever. Most intersex people would love to just be normal and live a normal life.
