i feel like people who eat breakfast really have their lives together
If you have ever thought to yourself “Oh my god, why does it even MATTER if there are gay people in this? Its a book/movie/TV show/etc. It isn’t a big deal!” Remember this:
You have probably NEVER, EVER, in your entire life, read a book WITHOUT any straight people in it.
Think about that. Every story, every TV show, every movie, or book, or comic you have EVER read has had cishet people in it. Every. Single. One.
Even shows like Queer as Folk have more recurring straight characters than most shows have recurring LGBTQ+ characters. How sad is that?
You don’t know the luxury you have in that.
So before you treat us like we’re whiny and irrational, just remember that we only want a little of what you have ALWAYS had.
New life goal: write a book without any straight people in it.
