It’s terribly hard not to meld into the person you’re dating. It’s like your heart beats their name. Alex, Alex, Alex. When am I going to see him next? What will we do? What is he thinking about right now? Is he thinking about me?
You feel so happy when you’re with that person that all other feelings seem to become peripheral. You almost forgot about them, how they arise and how nice they can feel. Being well-rounded ceases to hold much meaning or sense.
But is this love? Words, words, words. Alex, Alex, Alex. What does it all mean?
AHH making Mulan gay (or bi) isn’t any indication of progress! In fact it struck me as reenforcement of an anti-feminist stereotype. Mulan was widely commended as a very pro-feminist princess; she fought her own battles and fell in love as an equal. So what just because she’s a strong female character she’s gay?? What the fuck is up with that???
