“THIS IS WHO I REALLY AM”

my parents have accepted it.
i’m working on converting my dad, but he only cares about the alt-modes and how the toys transform.
There are barely any books out there where a guy falls for a guy, or a girl falls for a girl… I think if young people grew up reading about it, they would find homosexuality more normal and understand it better.

Every book with these kinds of relationships that I’ve ever found were all very mature books, obviously aimed at older audiences (centered around someone’s mid-life crisis or other details more relevant to anyone over thirty, or at worst some girl on girl action thrown into porn-in-a-book just because it’s ‘kinky’). Of course books centered around later stages of life aren’t bad, but wouldn’t it be something if other forms of sexuality weren’t used as either a selling point, or thrown into the background of someone else’s story just to be politically diverse? To see them treated as normal by allowing younger groups to see it in the same exact light as any romance, instead of ‘my high school aged child might have seen an implication of a gay relationship, whatever is the world coming to!?’ .
If kids TV episodes can center around whether or not this girl managed to make out with that guy by the end of the school week, I don’t see why it’s so impossible to find a good YA book with any form of same-sex romance so much as implied.
I love Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy, and wish I knew more people in the fandom. The books are gritty and exciting, and it’s a rare YA novel that has a priority on action while still smoothly incorporating romance. The character of Tris Prior is very real to me, with strengths and weaknesses that seem human rather than manufactured.

I don’t think the girls who say ‘Jem deserves Tessa, but Will needs her’ realize that they’re endorsing an unhealthy relationship in the very phrase itself. Dependency is not love.
