    Extremely my shit! Queer as hell and I loved every second. I laughed, I winced, I shrieked, and most of all, I cried. We all deserve to be understood. We all deserve to be loved 💜

    The "I love my dead gay son!" scene in Heathers turned into an unironic, maudlin, deeply insulting story of how a gay teen's suicide became the tragic backstory for his shitty father's redemption story.
