Do you see this?
Do you see the number of things that are WRONG with this?
The fake slur, the beat up face, the TAG LINE. 
You know what this movie is? It’s speaking to every single fucking straightie (yes I just made that word up and it implies exactly the correct tone of condescension that I need right now) who feels ~*so*~ oppressed by queer people, ~*so victimized*~, and most importantly so threatened by our existence, by our refusal to shut up, by our refusal to disappear, by our insistence on our rights, by our celebration of ourselves. Well fuck you. 
And don’t even get me started on the tag line. “How would you live if you couldn’t love?” I wonder— OH WAIT. OH. FUCKING. WAIT. WOW. GEE. I JUST HAVE NO IDEA IT’S NOT LIKE THAT’S ACTUALLY HAPPENING RIGHT NOW TO REAL PEOPLE. 
Fuck. 
I’m so fucking incensed. Maybe you should feel threatened. Maybe queer people are coming for you. We’re coming for your cushy straight heteronormative lifestyle and nothing about your shitty world is ever going to be the same. 

This is the summary according to IMDB:
Love is All You Need? tells the story of Ashley, a young teen who is raised in the picture perfect all-American family with two moms, two grandpas, two uncles, and a little brother. But Ashley has a problem, she has a crush on a boy at school, which is against everything this world has ever taught her. This undeniable attraction to the opposite sex causes her to be the constant target of verbal and physical abuse until she is driven to a tragic end. This film hopes to shed light onto the highly controversial issue of human and equal rights in the LBGT Community, and also raise awareness to our current world as to the obstacles that this community faces.

I just love reading the comments from people who are flipping shit because they didn’t take the time to see what it’s actually trying to do…

lol no do not talk down to all of us who are angry about this
instead take a seat and think about what you’re saying
the way they are going to get straight people to care about the gsm communities
is to recast themselves as victims
make the abused into abusers
oppressed into oppressors
appropriate our stories as their stories?????
instead of you know actually shooting a movie about actual queer people????

I have mixed feelings about this. Looks interesting, but I gotta say something hurt inside when the trailer introduces us into this alternate universe in which “GAY is NORMAL”. I know homosexuality is not the norm in our current society and maybe that’s why they chose to use that word… but that doesn’t mean I don’t feel anything when gay is adressed as something unusual.
