Make way for the first television wedding between platonic same-sex best friends.
Last month, the Freeform show, Everything's Gonna Be Okay, introduced the first "homo-romantic asexual character," the latest iteration in LGBTQIA "identities." Basically, it is someone who has no sexual attraction to anyone, but really likes a best friend of the same sex. Gay, Inc. will create an identity for anything nowadays.
The homo-romantic asexual character, Drea (Lillian Carrier), is the best friend of Matilda (Kayla Cromer), one of the show's main characters.
Matilda likes to have casual sex with strange men. Drea and Matilda are happy in their mutual friendship and do not have sexual desire for each other. (They tried to be lesbians, but did not enjoy it.)
In the bizarre season 2 finale, "Gulf Fritillary Butterfly," on Thursday, June 4, Drea and Matilda got officially married in a civil ceremony to seal their friendship.
Matilda: Drea, in spite of so many things, we found each other and we deserve each other in any way that we want and this is what we want. When I'm with you, I see someone who looks at the world with a type of kindness that is usually observed in fictional characters and books.
Matilda will continue to have casual sex with strange men, but Drea and Matilda will be roommates for life and help take care of each other. Of course, they could have just been roommates and helped take care of each other like plenty of friends do, but then I suppose they would not have been able to dress up in pretty wedding outfits and take fun pictures.
Believe it or not, this same-sex "best friend marriage" insanity is now being promoted by the left. The New York Times, a newspaper of emotionally immature writers that regularly pushes stupid ideas about marriage and relationships, recently published an article titled "From Best Friends to Platonic Spouses." "Some people are taking their friendships to the next level by saying 'I do' to marriages without sex," the subheading announced. Actually, only lonely people living in an atomized society who no longer recognize the nature of either friendship or marriage would do any such thing.
As the writer Auguste Meyrat has pointed out, "Despite having a plethora of sexual orientations and genders to choose from, the only thing modern people can think of when describing a close friendship is marriage. But this is not a marriage, nor is it even a friendship. Friendship isn’t exclusive like marriage, nor is it celebrated with an official ceremony. Friends don’t marry each other; they help one another find good spouses to marry and be happy with."
Everything's Gonna Be Okay's creator and star Josh Thomas told Variety, “Expecting these lifetime, monogamous relationships where, if somebody sleeps with somebody else, that’s the ultimate betrayal, has failed so many times. I just think creating relationships that work more specifically for the individual than what the Bible said is really cool, and the fact that they have these labels helps explain."
After reading a comment like that, you will not be surprised to learn that Thomas' comedy is routed in his own traumatic childhood which includes his parents' divorce. In a previous episode of Everything's Gonna Be Okay, Thomas' autobiographical gay character, Nicholas, said he could never think of love apart from sex. Thomas doesn't need his own show. He needs a better therapist.
And Hollywood needs to stop pushing these confused LGBTQIA narratives rooted in unhealed trauma or loneliness. There really are people in the world who know how to separate platonic friendships from marriage. There are also people who know how to create healthy, enduring families rooted in the monogamous love of a husband and wife.
Unfortunately, G.L.A.A.D. signs-off on most Hollywood scripts nowadays and is the arbiter of an increasingly extreme Gay, Inc. agenda. Therefore, these ludicrous storylines will only increase. And as they do, Americans will increasingly tune them out.
