“Being the shy, awkward girl who didn’t have a lot of friends – theater was the first time I felt like I could open up and be someone I could only imagine to be. I experienced emotions that I hadn’t experienced before. I loved being able to tell stories and make people laugh and feel different emotions. I love acting, performing, and I love what it did for me. It was like therapy to learn, and I wanted to keep learning. It was the one thing where I could take all of the experiences in my life and put it out there.” - Arden Cho

Really fuck lesbians who refer to bi women as “sexually available to men” (especially as a way to “explain” our high rape stats.)
I want to be clear— my “sexual availability” to someone is determined by my consent and not by my sexuality. The only people I am sexually available to are the people who I choose to have sex with.
No issue with Braeden constantly risking her life for the other characters and literally getting her throat ripped out for them, but her developing feelings and falling in love is apparently ruining her character.
Again, for the cheap seats: this kind of thinking is a function of White supremacist ideology, because it rests on the notion that Black and Brown/non-White bodies are only worthwhile if they’re useful to the people around them, but under no circumstances whatsoever can or should humanity or the trappings of it be ascribed to them. It’s the idea of Black and Brown/non-White bodies as pack mules, only good for hard labor and/or emotional wetwork for other people and it’s gross as fuck. Unlearn that shit.
#if you loved braeden when she was risking her life to save isaac#or risking her life to get a message to scott#or saving derek and peter from the calaverases at risk to herself#but you have a problem with her wanting to forge any kind of actual connection to derek#or anyone else on the show?#you need to take a good long look at yourself#because what you’re actually saying is:#she’s good enough to risk her life to save your faves#but not good enough to be wanted by or to have an actual emotional connection with or to be fucked by them
