Love, Simon ★★½

The way they played off Ethan’s coming out because he was effeminate, the way by the end of his LA gay college fantasy Simon goes ‘Yeah, maybe not that gay’. Simon is so squeaky clean and straight passing so straights can emphasise with him and don’t feel uncomfortable. You can call me a cold hearted bitch, but this just screams ‘gay explained for straight people by straight people’. And I can’t take it. What’s wrong being tHaT gAy?
