This show is really, really straight

By queer person in search of more - Dec 12 2018

Fully aware that heterosexuality is the dominant lifestyle choice in our culture, I’m consistently surprised at how little self awareness this show has of its extreme normativity. Queer people are in conversation about many of these topics and tend to navigate them quite differently. I challenge the host to find more queer writers, critics, and story tellers to add greater depth to her show.

Just another sad love song.
