I feel like this has to be said…even though I’ve already made an angry post, I’m gonna make one that’s more…calmer lol.
So, I see a lot of post being made about how a lot of us are giving Kaitlyn a hard time. I was one of them.
I saw a post last night from a Kaitlyn supporter that told us to not give up on her and that there are reasons as to why she’s behaving the way she is. The post also brought up great points in regards to how Kaitlyn is actually a great friend. The post brought up all of the things Kaitlyn has done to help the suitemates, i.e., being Chris’ campaign manager to help him with his election, helping him get the funding he needed to collect his signatures to run, in book 1 when he was upset about not starting on the football team, she was the one that had everyone spell out Chris’ name on their stomachs to boost his ego, she gave up being in the sorority to be with her friends when they didn’t get in, how Kaitlyn had to keep quiet her feelings about MC while MC spoke about other love interest, etc.
In regards to those points, that was true and to be honest, that was what I liked about Kaitlyn as a friend. She was always there for you. Let’s also not forget that MC has been there for Kaitlyn too, though. I can’t really remember any moments in book 1 but I know during Kaitlyn’s birthday party, MC was there for her during the alcohol poisoning and reassuring her that they’d always be there for each other.
In book 2, my MC and Kaitlyn are dating. My MC didn’t try and force her to come out. She let Kaitlyn move at her own pace. The only time she really wanted Kaitlyn to say more about her sexual orientation was when it came to their relationship. My MC is dating her and instead of Kaitlyn being honest about herself, she was willing to continue to play Arjun’s game of ‘will they or won’t they’ just because she didn’t want to hurt his feelings. To me, it was disrespectful to the MC’s feelings being her girlfriend. Kaitlyn didn’t have to tell him she was gay, she could’ve told him she only sees him as a friend but she still continued to only think about him and his feelings.
