IF YOURE LOOKING FOR WLW REP THAT’S TREATED WITH GENUINE LOVE AND CARE WATCH THE BOLD TYPE. THE WRITERS HAVE DENOUNCED THE BYG TROPE AND THERE ARE ACTUAL NON-STRAIGHT PEOPLE WRITING THE SHOW WHO ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT SAPPHICS AND WOMEN OF COLOR. PLEASE WATCH IT THIS SHOW DESERVES SO MUCH HYPE.
NOT TO MENTION THE CAST ACTUALLY SUPPORTS THE F/F SHIP INSTEAD OF INVALIDATING IT LIKE ~ SOME ~ CASTS HAVE DONE IN THE PAST
INSTEAD OF SUPPORTING SHOWS THAT ARE OPENLY HOMOPHOBIC AND CONSTANTLY DISREGARD THE QUEER COMMUNITY SUPPORT THE BOLD TYPE
-A feminist TV show that feels feminist an defends it definition of feminism
-Doesn’t shy away from the horrible realities of rape culture.
-Women ALWAYS helping other women. Granted it hasn’t been many episodes, but I have yet to meet a ‘vindictive bitch’ character. The boss, which they could easily have fall into a cold, icy, mean character is actually supportive.
-Men who also ALWAYS help women. I have yet to see a man who isn’t great on this show, who doesn’t try to understand these women and support them.
-A woman questioning her sexuality without that being her only plot point.
-For all my gays, Katie Stevens, Karma from “Faking It”, is the main character here.
-A gay, Muslim woman that writers genuinely treat as an important 3-Dimensional character. Also, a black questioning female character who is a lead.
-On that note, 3-Dimensional characters. Writers who actually care about their characters.
-There is never unnecessary drama, and it remains entertaining without falling to stupid, overdone clichés (thus far).
-Women pursuing their dreams, but not in a way that feels preachy; instead its empowering.
-Women being strong and confident. Women who go in and ask for that raise. Women who are proud of their bodies. Women who fight back. Women who own themselves and their sexuality. Women who are their own role models. Women who I could’ve used as role models when I was younger.
-Women who deal with actual issues facing us younger audiences, especially social media realities in a way that doesn’t make fun of us or see our problems as just comic relief, but handles them seriously.
