quote is relevant to description and to life

But Ronan was described as gay. He crushed on a boy and sexily dreamed of boys and fell in love with a boy and — only heternormativity mumbles that surely in addition to all of this description of his love life we maybe would like to say the word gay too, just in case? As Gansey slowly falls in love with Blue, I wouldn’t have him whisper, “by the way, I’m straight.” Two love stories, written the same way: equality.
