My girlfriend and I are watching Steven Universe together and we finally finished Season 1. The internet had spoiled the big reveal about Ruby and Sapphire for me ages ago, but I was not remotely prepared. Holy shit, I’m a grown-ass adult who pays taxes and buys toilet paper and I was sitting on the couch fucking weeping because a children’s cartoon about anthropomorphic alien space rocks does a better job depicting the joy a committed, loving relationship between two queer women than any piece of media I have ever seen before in my life. I’m still struggling to process because, fuck, that’s her that’s me that’s us onscreen. That’s how I feel, I want to hold her tight forever and somebody knows that, that feeling, how goddamn excited I am every time I see her,
and they put it out in the world for everyone to see and understand without it being sensationalized and I’m shook to my very core.
