You know how (in fandom esp) ppl make fun of people who say "wow these two characters are such great friends :))" and everyone is like "yeah, sure, bc friends would do THIS *enter thing* for each other, jessica" or w/e? I mean I totally get where they're coming from, especially with lgbt+ pairings! But at the same time, as an aroace, itd mean a lot to finally be able to see a good friendship thats just. Friendship. Two people loving each other by selection w/o strings attached. and just?? Idk
True, tbh???? Like… aphobes have actually started on this campaign about “lgbt+ romances are more important that friendships” and it just… It feels kind of gross to me, given the context? Yes, LGBT+ romances in fiction are IMMENSELY important. But we should also encourage that not EVERYTHING in life has to be about romance.
Give me more diverse relationships in media. Of all kinds.
