You know when a fast angry song comes on that you know every word to and you’re in just the right mood that your eyes light up with the fire and angst of a thousand punk rockers and you just feel so alive
so apparently, luke newberry, who plays an openly queer teen in a show about a marginalized group’s fight for liberation, is losing in the radiotimes poll to a guy who’s starring in 50 shades of grey as the aggressor in an abusive relationship
this is just fucking perfect
fuck ok luke’s behind again
guys come on if he advances maybe the bbc’ll notice his popularity caused by in the flesh (which implies that the show itself is popular) and decide to keep it going
and, if in the flesh gets another season due to popularity, it’ll show the people making decisions in media that you can have complicated female characters who aren’t reduced to love interests, can have real character development, can have openly queer characters in a relationship without making it the show’s plot, and can have characters with mental illnesses and not make that their only “interesting” characteristic without risking ratings, but rather increasing them
i mean, fuck, this could open doorways to proper representation in other forms of media why aren’t you all up in arms about this too
