For people still confused about Flip Flappers, and wanting to know ~what it all means~

Flip Flappers so far is strongly considered by the bulk of those critically examining it to be about 2 CORE THEMES, that have been strongly reinforced every single episode so far, and none more so than the most recent episode 7 at time of writing;

1) Flip Flappers is about Narratives. How stories are told, what they mean, and how they affect people. Including influencing how they act and think.

2) Flip Flappers is about a young girl coming to terms with her repressed queer sexuality and her rising feelings for her new friend, struggling with what it means about who she is as a person, and what her place in the world is. It deliberately invokes established themes from mainsteam lesbian (’yuri’) fiction to criticize, celebrate, and reflect on the medium and how its narratives relate to queer girls’ sexual awakenings.

3) These two interact on each other, and question how societal narratives and ideas influence one’s perception of themselves. It questions how either deliberate manipulation or careless misuse of narratives; stories, ideas- can affect how people’s personalities and lives develop, and the power and danger of narratives in shaping who someone is. 

And I don’t want the world to see me, cause I don’t think that they’d understand. When everything’s made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am.
