I’m just so tired of hoping to find media where you think “Oh there’s same sex romances that don’t end up in tragedy” then having it turn out to just be “”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”“friends”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”” or they act romantic as a huge homophobic joke like
I just want to watch a film where I can relate to a character who doesn’t fit in cuz they know liking the same gender as their own is something no one talks about and that hey they actually meet someone else who doesn’t make them feel alone and i want characters who are the same sex who kiss and cry and love each other without any fucking pretense to it and who overcome adversity because they’ve grown to care about each other and i want to know a happy ending awaits them
i want to have the same fantasies and dreams reflected in media like my straight counterparts have, i want to believe that falling in love won’t mean that it’ll end in tragedy or that it’s just a detail i need to shove away because it’s a fundamental flaw of my very being. I want to feel like a story like mine can be told and that I too could have my own happy ending.
I’m so tired of being disappointed, so tired of being told that falling in love is inherently sexual and that romances like mine don’t deserve to be heard or seen. I’m so tired, and so sad.
The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love is pretty good in this regard. movie ends with girls smooching happily while ignoring everyone being a shithead around them
also look at this hella 90’s cover
