Let me tell you a thing or two about Lost Girl and Orphan Black (God bless Canada). Sexuality is handled so well on these shows and here’s why:
In Lost Girl you have Bo who is one day with Dyson and then later she’s with Lauren and you have never ever heard anyone be like “oh, so you’re bisexual?” Or “are you gay now that you’re with a woman so you don’t like men anymore?” No. Bo is like “I’m in love with Lauren now” and everyone is like oh cool, cool. And then you have Tamsin who kisses Dyson but also kisses Bo. And have you ever heard her put a label on herself? (correct me if I’m wrong but I’m 99.99% sure that the answer is) no, and no one even fucking questioned it. No one fucking cares because it’s her own private thing whom is she going to love or not. Then you have Lauren who was with Nadia before Bo. And you have Kenzi and Hale. And you have Dyson and Ciara. All the relationships and characters are treated equally. And no one ever questions them. If two people are in love that’s it. No one ever dares or even wants to puts a label on other people. There was only the thing in Pilot when Kenzi said something to Bo like “you’re hot but I’m not into chicks” and even that was just Kenzi being Kenzi and messing around, there was nothing homophobic behind that statement.
And then there’s Orphan Black, bless it. You have Felix who’s gay. Cosima and Delphine who are bisexual. And a few straight characters. And literally no one ever met Felix and turned to Sarah like “oh, your brother is gay?” And Sarah who knew Cosima for basically one week, maybe? When she found out that Cosima is hooking up with Delphine she didn’t go “oh, so you like chicks, you’re gay?” FUCKING NOPE. Sarah was like “stay away from Delphine bc she’s gonna sell you out to neolutionists”. That’s it. The only thing Sarah cared about is that Cosima would get hurt by Delphine. She didn’t even think twice or even ask Cosima about her sexuality (even tho I guess many people would be curious about that because of the whole clone thing, like, how are you gay and I’m not?) NO, SIR. The only thing that mattered is that Cosima doesn’t get hurt by the one she loves. That’s all.
So one HUGE FUCKING THANK YOU to Canada for finally doing this right.
WOW OK THIS IS LONG BUT I HAD TO WRITE IT BC I HAVE SO MUCH LOVE FOR THESE SHOWS OK SHH
