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.

Having a TiM act as a woman and pairing him up with "the" lesbian in the show

I don't like seeing his hands on her. I realize she is a fictional character, but this really ruins the one television fantasy woman I still had, and I am mad about it.

Their sex scene was so awkward because you could clearly tell that this wasn't a womans body.
