can we just talk about how well tony’s sexuality was handled in 13 reasons why?
his character didn’t revolve around him being gay even after he told clay he was gay, i don’t even think they mentioned it again
his relationship with his boyfriend never felt forced into the story, anytime brad showed up he had a purpose like being someone tony could talk to and therefore giving us an insight into tony’s thoughts about everything
the others never used his sexuality in an insulting way when they were talking about him
he wasn’t stereotyped in any way. justin and the others seemed intimated by him, he wore leather, drove a badass classical mustang, did rock climbing without safety gear, etc.
Humans are weird right? We have weird diets, we don’t know how to let the environment kill us, and we believe the oddest things. Like a day can be unlucky because of a number, or saying something makes it more likely to happen, or certain things bring bad luck. I just don’t see some of these things passing as we go into space.
Alien: Human friend, why have you locked yourself in your room?
Human: Because it’s Friday the 13th.
Alien: What does that have to do with anything?
Human: Bad luck, something always happens. I’m just going to sleep, see you tomorrow.
Alien: I… okay? *walks away perturbed and confused*
Alien: Human friend, have you made contact with your, ah, “Parents” recently?
Human: Shhhhh, don’t say it.
Alien: Say… what?
Human: Nothing, just… nothing.
Alien: … Do you mean, refer to your “pa-”
Human: DON’T MENTION THEM!!
Alien: But… why?
Human: They’ll call and then I have to deal with them and explain why I ran away to another space ship.
Your name doesn’t belong on this list. But you need to be here if I’m going to tell my story. If I’m going to explain why I did, what I did because you aren’t every other guy. You are different. You’re a good and kind and decent and I didn’t deserve to be with someone like you.”
zach dempsey. i’m not going to say that what he did was okay, or fine, but i am saying that he is so precious. i know he stole hannah’s compliments and that was wrong, but zach still deserves so much more. he genuinely liked hannah, and after all that shit went down, he still kept the letter. this just proves that he never meant to hurt anyone. he is going to live the rest of his life thinking about how he killed someone. it wasn’t his fault, though. zach was surrounded by the wrong group of people, influencing him in so many of the wrong ways. zach was a star basketball player, a decent student and a great guy. what i’m saying is, HE NEEDS TO BE PROTECTED. i mean, how pure is he. his mom even said that even though he is a star athlete, he wants to be a marine biologist. a fucking marine biologist. idk this is so stupid but i just needed to express how amazing and how much i love him.
THE SCENE WHERE JUSTIN STAYS OVER ALEX’S IS SO DEEP BECAUSE YOU CAN JUST SEE HOW JUSTIN IS SO NOT USED TO BEING AT ALL CARED FOR AND BUTTERED UP WITH COMPLIMENTS AND KINDNESS. HE ENJOYED ALEX’S DAD’S HOME COOKED FOOD SO MUCH BECAUSE HE NEVER GETS IT AT HOME. YOU CAN TELL HOW NATURALLY DEVOID OF LOVE HE IS AND HOW HE CLINGS TO ANYTHING TO FILL THAT VOID THAT HIS FAMILY NEVER GAVE HIM; SO HE ATTACHES HIMSELF TO GROUPS OF FRIENDS AND PEOPLE (WHO ARE MOST LIKELY VERY UNHEALTHY) BECAUSE HE DOESNT KNOW HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS. SO ALEX IS HIS LIFELINE TOWARDS THE END, THE ONLY TIME HES REALLY HAPPY AND CONTENT. ALEX WAS LITERALLY THE ONLY PERSON WHO HAD HIS BACK IN THE END AND CARED ENOUGH TO LET HIM STAY OVER. FUCK. ALEX AND JUSTIN MAN.
