Yall Lauren really has to fucking grow up
For most of the fandom, camren was never about the sexual shit anyway. Yeah there are scenes in fanfics and yes there are manips but fuck man people started shipping camren bc they were cute and they stared at each other like they were in love. No one ever looked at camren for the first time and immediately thought “ey yall they probably hot when they fuckin” so no its not a fucking wet dream
Lauren had to discover her feelings with the public scrutinizing her every move and yeah I get it that’s fucking hard. But it’s also a real struggle for young people to figure themselves out without having anyone to look up to. And yeah we can’t erase that there are some people who fetishize camren, because people like that exist in every fandom. But for most people, camren is just a chance to see two extremely successful girls falling in love and HOPING that someday, they wouldn’t have to be so scared anymore because it’s going to be okay. Even if they never really fell in love, people looked up to that and aspired for that.
This isn’t just about her life anymore. She came out as bisexual, and she has a responsibility. You don’t just fucking come out while in a position of power and then tell people to screw off when they ask you about your life. She wants to be a feminist icon? She wants to be a bisexual role model? Then she better fucking own up to it.
I say this as a fan and as a bisexual woman. She can’t keep doing this when shit hits the fan. Most camren shippers have been the ones defending her since day one anyway. They created a safe space for Lauren even if she never felt it, and made sure that if she ever decided to come out (and she did) she wouldn’t have to deal as much with the biphobia and the hate because they’d already cushion the fall anyway. Some cs fans attacked her and made her feel like shit, but she should really remember that it’s been cs fans who never really left her either.
And I wanna clear this up, I’m not hating on tyren. Lauren is a big girl and she can date whoever she wants. But that’s the point isn’t it? She’s fucking grown up. She’s been handling this camren shit since 2012, so she should really learn. She ain’t 16 anymore. She’s a grown ass woman who should be more responsible for the things she says.
