pass it on

Psst, lbpq representation/girls loving each other romantically and/or sexually doesn’t inherently threaten representation for girls loving each other platonically. Lesbians have friends. Bi women have friends. We can be friends with straight lady characters, too! We have besties and sisters and moms and daughters and mentors and bosses and teammates.

Our presence in a story doesn’t magically wipe all traces of non-shippy girl relationships from the plot, and acting like it does just makes me feel like people think f/f love is a contaminant. Stop that.
