What I really like about SKAM and their take on the gay theme is that this season isn’t about hate crimes and homophobia in that sense (though that’s an important thing too) but it’s about the person. It’s about a boy struggling with coming to terms with his sexuality and his own internalised homophobia. Nobody in his life has called him slurs in a hateful way, he’s never experienced homophobia from anyone but himself.
And that’s important, because you can definitely be your biggest bully.
