Too gay. I resent the idea that every female who looks somewhat masculine must be gay

This is set in the 50's right? There's no way this would have happened.

>1950's gang aesthetic
>LGBT theme
this two things just don't go together

The thing is, they completely ignore the "accuracy" of the 50's for the sake of being fun.

It's called "fiction" guys. Using a particular aesthetic just to do it isn't exactly a new thing. Shallow but nothing to get your panties in a bunch over.

Honestly I could get into the idea of lesbians in a happy idealized version of the 50s but this seems a little too much like the pink ladies meet down with cis for me.

>Open lesbianism in an era where electro shock therapy and in some cases fucking lobotomy were considered effective treatments against it
There have been openly homosexual celebrities of both sexes at the time. It's all about where you are and who you know.

I doubt greasers are always the most religious bunch.

But is it irresponsible to depict points in history as being harmonious and culturally diverse when in reality many people suffered under the yoke of systematic oppression?

I think about these questions often. I think that's why straight white male protagonists are just easier - there is no struggle to make them "fit" at any point in history because they've always fit.

What is Rhodesia?

What is Cold War Era Africa in general?

Except everyone is already painfully aware of it, so depicting the small slice that wasn't full of suffering is actually a rather refreshing break from the norm.

I don't know why you expect a cartoon about delinquents to be model citizens of the era.

No. Not every story has to be realistic.

Funny thing is, all you gotta do is put it in [current year] and say their nips get hard for the 50s aesthetic. Problem solved.

Why not have it be a fictional world where modern day aesthetic takes influence after the 50's rather than actually being the 50's. There's lots of fictional worlds that have the aesthetic of things like 70's patterns even though it's the future. Making it about a black gay chubby girl in the 50's who is popular and accepted by her peers while simultaneously posting on your website about how it's about progressiveness despite the time makes you actually look ignorant and like you wan to erase history because you're ashamed of it or something.

Or at least make it a point that this would be frowned upon and it's about not giving a shit about peer pressure or something. Make it a reason why it's specifically set in the 50's rather than, "I like that time period!" when they clearly don't since they're disrespecting the history behind it. 50's attire is one thing, but pushing that it's IN the 50's is another.

I never see any modern day sitcoms set in New York where the twin towers are still around with the creator going, "It's fiction! C'mon, it's fiction!". The only reason you would ever see it is in an alternate history world where that's the point.

Also why are so many artists copying Steven Universe art style now. It's getting annoying.

When did gay romance become the 'go to' for animated concepts?

I can get past the setting but everything else looks boring. Is it just a story about the budding romance between two lesbians or does other stuff happen not related to lesbianism? Now that I think about it that story could actually be more interesting if they set it in the actual 1950s.

it also has trans characters and bigenders and demisexuals and gray aromantics
