sometimes i like a bit of het

oh god this might count as the kind of #Pearl Discourse everyone’s been hating this week but

a thing that’s been bothering me, mostly in fandom, a little bit in the show i guess, is using pearl as the butt of jokes about her attraction to rose quartz and comparing it to rose/greg like… sometimes it feels like “haha look at this pathetic creepy obsessive lesbian trying ineffectually to break up this deep, pure het romance”…….. at least in the show pearl’s feelings seem to be requited to some extent which doesn’t seem to find its way into fandom much?? i might be reading too much into it but i feel like the conflict here isn’t from rose actually loving greg more than pearl just that pearl doesn’t see rose has room in her heart for both of them…..
