Two years with this ridiculous, food stealing, goofy, immature, passionate, beautiful, human being. I can’t really articulate how I feel, but despite every hurdle, we endure. Thank you for seeing past my bullshit, my fears, my anger, and believing in me and inspiring me. You are everything I am not and for some reason, we work. I love you and am eternally grateful for you, always.

a restaurant in my hometown got a review that said the servers should “show some skin” so the owner added a potato skin special to the menu and all the proceeds from the special go to the west virginia foundation for rape information services (x)
That’s exactly the appropriate response.
*whispers* Bechdel pass. See how easy?
It is legitimately sad that so many movies don’t pass that test because it is literally this easy.

"She removes her wig, her eyelashes, her makeup, never breaking eye contact with the reflection of her natural self. It’s an intimate, powerful moment television doesn’t often show: A black woman removing all the elements white supremacy tells her she has to wear to be beautiful, successful, powerful." (x)
I have read enough fanfiction to know where that is going

You know what.
I find it interesting, and by interesting I mean absolutely expected, that the HTGAWM tag is filled with metas and college-level essays dissecting all of the obvious homophobia and biphobia in the latest episode but almost no one is discussing what an absolute sack of shit Connor is for outing Aiden, and that is worrying to me.
people don’t disclose their sexuality for a variety of reasons - it’s personal, they simply don’t want to, if they are anything but heterosexual it could legally get them fired in certain places, get them kicked out of their homes, disowned, denied benefits or could literally get them killed. And you would think Connor of all people would know that - know that better than anyone in their group. You would think he would understand all of the careful considerations that have to be taken in deciding who you want to out yourself to, who can be trusted, who can’t, etc.
But Connor not only decides to out Aiden for the sole fact that he wants to hurt Michaela, he decides to have fun with outing him. He makes it into this gigantic, disgusting and prolonged spectacle where he does nothing but make sexual euphemisms about Aiden to Michaela and drops hints about their past together. He does this for almost half of the episode - and we’re supposed to think it’s funny! Cause goodness knows Connor thought it was funny! He was having a ball taunting Michaela at their job, at school, in front of their colleagues and did his best to drive her up the wall for literally no reason other than he wanted to emotionally hurt and manipulate her.
This is beyond fucked up - this is borderline evil, and not only am I appalled at his actions I’m appalled that the show took no steps towards addressing this behavior.
What if Michaela had broken off her engagement with Aiden? What if she had gone snooping through other things in Aiden’s personal life? What if Aiden’s job found out and he was fired or demoted or one of the million other things that happens to real life people outed in unsafe places?
What Connor did was not only insensitive it was just plain dangerous and I really need people to understand that.
Aiden did absolutely nothing wrong by not telling Michaela about his past. Nothing at all, and I’m amazed at all the people who think he should have.
I mean shit - her entire reaction to this situation should show everyone precisely why bisexual people are rightfully terrified of coming out to their partners. Michaela literally threatened to destroy his entire career, take everything he owned and leave him out to dry because she was terrified that he might one day leave her for a man because he had sex once with a guy when he was sixteen. That is an absolutely irrational leap in logic but it is unfortunately not an uncommon leap. Having our partners fear that “one day you’ll realize you’re really gay and leave me” is a daily reality for bisexual people and why many of us feel a need to keep our identities secret. And Connor of all people should KNOW this
That entire subplot was riddled with biphobia and homophobia and I will gladly join anyone in ripping apart the episode’s writers, but if you’re going to rail against the horrible actions of the characters involved in this situation you need to rail against all of them.
That means Michaela and Connor. He does not, I repeat he does not, get off because he’s your resident pretty gay white boy. He needs to get thrown in the fire same as her.
