Honestly I love lesbian headcanons (I'm a sapphic girl myself) and I hate when people headcanon Allura as a lesbian bc it's obvious they just do it because they don't like straight ships. But there's a thing I hate more than this: When people say they don't ship Shal,lura because "Allura is strong and needs no men" so... Only weak girls date guys? You can't be strong and be straight at the same time? Gimme a break please.
EXACTLY!! Not to mention Allura could be bisexual and still date Shiro and still like girls too! Shallura is a healthy, mutually supportive relationship between two poc who are both badass leaders and honestly, Allura doesn’t need Shiro, and Shiro doesn’t need Allura. But they want each other, as friends and as lovers, and that’s what’s important.
