Ok I'm dying at the SC shippers flipping on the cast like a dime tho for "queer baiting" b/c blatantly saying "these two characters are just friends and will never get together" is the exact opposite of queer baiting and also points to the bitter shippers for totally undermining the importance and value of female friendship and platonic love. My sapphic ass is sick of this shit; which is sad, because I'd like to ship SC if the shippers weren't so freaking awful 😝
Anon ,you just put everything I think into words! I used to ship it actually but then I peaced out of the fandom and joined this one because honestly I can’t function in hostile environments and they were getting increasingly more hostile to the point that I was like “bitch bye!”.
And I say this as a bisexual woman, how is their relationship queer bating??? There was never one occasion on the show that hinted they had romantic feelings for one another. They love, support and show affection toward each other and that’s something female friends normally do. They keep completely undermining the value of platonic female friendships with those accusations as if women aren’t able to love and care for one another unless they want to bang each other.
I’m totally cool with people shipping them. They have an amazing relationship. Just don’t accuse the writers of queer baiting when all they’re doing is writing a beautiful healthy supportive female friendship which is super rare to be honest.
