why r there so many cishet songs that are like “babe i dont care what they say about us being together” wow the heterosexual struggle
I definitely see where you’re coming from.
My whole life I’ve been informed being anything but straight is disgusting and wrong and WILL get me disowned and so on. And I get that struggle, I do.
But even in the heterosexual relationships, families still have this “tier” of acceptable. And the classification is so small that if they don’t pick the partner themselves, they probably won’t like them.
The only reason my mother is okay with the relationship I’m in now is because she’s dark-skinned. Mom dislikes so many other things about her, but this is the first she hasn’t been near hostile over my partners since I first recognized romance.
So yeah. Thank you for saying this. It may not be a happy subject, but it’s still nice knowing there are others facing the same or similar treatments.
