First of all, Fuck You, Cassandra Clare. Fuck you, and your fake gay ally bullshit. And second, of all, you know I wouldn’t have been this pissed off if this was coming from an author who had a really good track record when it comes to queer representation. Oh, I would be still annoyed, because this joke was in poor taste anyway you slice it. However, I would have just rolled my eyes and kept on rolling.
However, after Clare’s only gay representation is a predatory underage relationship between an isolated and vulnerable gay boy and grown ass older bisexual man. I can tell Clare with a clear conscience to fuck right the hell off.
Also, let me be clear: Simon was made into a vampire, but his struggles as a vampire in no way mimics the struggle of real queer people. Coming out for queer people is Serious Business Yes, Simon could lose everything, but queer people have lost their lives for coming out and it’s not a joking matter. For Clare to joke about coming out is fucking insulting as hell to real queer people like me.
