Y'all listen to this, so last night I met this girl who is a huge Johnlock shipper, she was like “they’re my OTP I love them but I’m taking a break from the show” and I was like “why?” She told me basically that she was worried about queerbaiting and that she wasn’t sure she could handle that. I told her all about TJLC and how there’s a big group of people who truly believe that it’s not queerbaiting, and that there’s tons of evidence to back that idea up. I told her about TJLCE and how TAB was basically predicted by the TJLC crew.
She told me that ALL HER STRAIGHT FRIENDS TOLD HER TAB WAS HORRIBLE AND STUPID SO SHE NEVER WATCHED IT.
I just want that to let that sink in. A queer person was literally discouraged from watching queer media because straight people told it was bad quality. Didn’t it just win an Emmy? Isn’t it funny that things that seem “too gay” to straight people are brushed off as stupid or bad quality?
TAB IS LITERALLY SO GAY THAT STRAIGHT PEOPLE DONT UNDERSTAND IT. I know we already knew this but like……. if you read them as straight TAB makes literally NO SENSE.
