And even Marco slept with a girl in his last season on Degrassi, that was pretty cringy! But no seriously, that's the issue, name me one well written lesbian character that is neither crazy, nor dead, nor had a partner die. There are none!Not all of them get the Tara treatment. The lesbians in s1 of Jane the Virgin, one was incompetent and made to be crazy and her lover was a drug dealing killer. Lesbians are people to. Not sure about Blaze though. Lol. But as far as the representation goes, my gay best friend from high school related to Marco from Degrassi. It's important that teenagers of all kinds can relate to someone and not feel out casted. I don't like it when shows have gay/lesbian to just be like "look we have a gay character aren't we edgey". No, make them a real person who just happens to be gay. Its not a gimmick. I like the way it went down with Willow and Tara. They were just a couple, and I'm sad it ended. Mostly because i don't like Kennedy, and while I'm not a huge Tara fan, she's better than Kennedy. Who to me does feel like "look at me I'm a lesbian". I just don't like her.
The only shows I can think of are shows that focus specifically on lesbians, like South of Nowhere. But that doesn't really count in the sense that the show is specifically aimed at lesbians. For shows where the plot does not revolve around the girls being lesbians, there really aren't any shows where the lesbians end up happy and in love. Maybe Wentworth, but that show isn't done yet, same for Black Sails maybe. Orange is the New Black might also be one. But in most shows, Xena, Buffy, Orphan Black, the 100, PoI, PLL, Skins, American Horror Story, Supernatural, even gay shows like Lip Service and the L word, and even video games like Life is Strange fall for this trope. And that's just a fraction of it.About the only show lately that I seen that has had Happy Lesbians is Glee . Any other shows out there ?
