attn straight people: your one queer friend telling you that they dont mind the word “faggot” does not mean that you are, in fact, allowed to use the word “faggot” in any way, in any context, ever, because that word is a slur and the rest of us dont particularly enjoy hearing it

Okay, this is a super-important scene because there’s obviously a lot of symbolism going on here. I haven’t really seen anybody talking about this, so I want to dig a little deeper than the surface at which Homura is saying that “this ridiculous farce is just wasting the sacrifice that Madoka made for us.” I don’t think Homura really believes that, and I’ll tell you why.
Right here, we’re looking at a sculpture of Ultimate Madoka, pictured as a radiant goddess with arms outstretched to take on the burdens of despairing magical girls everywhere—the very image of salvation. Remember that Homura is the only one who is supposed to remember Madoka in this new universe. That tells us that this part of the scene takes place entirely within Homura’s mind.
Okay, so that’s all well and good. After all, Kyubey did describe Madoka’s ascension as “trying to become a god,” so it only makes sense that she’s portrayed as such, right?
