imagine a high school romance movie about a girl who works her ass off to play on the football team and eventually becomes the quarterback and she dates one of the cheerleaders
I would watch the hell out of that movie. It would be even better if the cheerleader was really popular and all the guys wanted to date her. She’s too scared to tell them she’s a lesbian until she meets the right girl.
wow good addition
I like the part where the angst-free cutesy story about girls dating and achieving their goals in high school was SUDDENLY AND HORRIFICALLY BARGED IN ON BY SOME ASSHOLE WHO CANNOT COMPREHEND A STORY ABOUT QUEER WOMEN WHERE THEY’RE NOT SUPER ANGSTY AND DEALING WITH BOYS WHY DO ALL QUEER FICTIONAL CHARACTERS HAVE TO HAVE A PLOT THAT REVOLVES ENTIRELY AROUND COMING OUT TO THE STRAIGHT PEOPLE AROUND THEM NOWHERE WAS IT EVEN MENTIONED THAT OTHER PEOPLE WEREN’T OKAY WITH THE RELATIONSHIP OR THAT THEY WERE HIDING THEIR IDENTITIES BUT OF COURSE THE ONLY THING A QUEER WOMAN CAN DO IS ANGST ABOUT STRAIGHT PEOPLE ALL FUCKING DAY ALL THEY DO IS SIT IN CLOSETS AND HAVE HORRIBLE THINGS HAPPEN TO THEM NO WE CAN’T EVEN HAVE A FUCKING HARMLESS UNIVERSE WHERE NOTHING BAD HAPPENS TO THEM IN A ONE FUCKING SENTENCE STORY
whoa im upset
Because coming out and the reaction of straight people totally aren’t central themes to the high school experiences of most queer folks. *eyeroll*
