But real talk… right now, 2k16: 

when talking about whatever TV shows/movies that we watch, it should be a normal thing for boys to openly fall in love with boys without it ending up being some kind of tragedy. 

when talking about whatever TV shows/movies that we watch, it should be a normal thing for girls to openly fall in love with girls without it ending up being some kind of tragedy.

when talking about whatever TV shows/movies that we watch, it should be a normal thing for love stories that include whatever combination of gender that doesn’t fit the traditional label ‘heterosexual’, to at least have the average and preferably hopeful ending that they deserve just as much as like 90% of all hetero ships going on wherever/whenever in popular media.

Because if you’re only there for a F/M relationship with a happy ending, you can take your pick and drown in the amount of choices that you’ve got. But too many people looking for representation still don’t have that luxury in this day and age, and that is a shame.

All of you deserve that epic love story, and for it to be the main happy ending of a show/movie instead of always the sad tragedy that eventually gets pushed to the background or ends in disaster just because it isn’t ‘straight’. Because honestly, those kind of endings for ships that aren’t ‘straight’ exist, but they are far and few between. 

I just want to put this out there...

I love Steven Universe.

I love how it’s teaching children all these great lessons about how to treat others.

I love how it focuses on the importance of communication and on bringing people together instead of just fighting them.

I love how it deals with really adult emotions in simple ways.

I love it’s humor.

I love that it doesn’t talk down to its audience.

I love how representative it is in terms of diversity (gender, race, sexuality, body types, family dynamics, lifestyles…).

I love how it looks.

I love its characters and how they are all explored and made to feel important (even when they’re just side characters).

I love its music.

I love its storytelling.

I love that it never goes the way cartoon shows typically go.

I just love everything about this show.

I love Steven Universe.
