Good media representation of lesbian relationships is sparse. I get that. But what's up with this stupid idolisation of toxic relationships?

Especially 'Tibette' is worshipped amongst the fans and I'm sitting here and wondering if I watched the same show as everyone else. I really had high hopes for the reboot, even if I didn't care for the new cast. I was interested if they will manage to rectify they mistakes from the past. But instead of doing that, they totally doubled down. Including a TIF, selling a TIM as 'cis woman' (no offence to the actor, he almost looks convincing) and doubling down on the toxic relationships that plagued the show years ago.

The new L word is nothing more than a virtue signalling show, I'm appalled that the original actresses even agreed to do this thing. It is cringe inducing.

Out of the plethora of amazing characters in the original, I was shocked and confused as to why only three of them would be returning for the reboot...

Maybe this is why.
