i love it when straight girls are “in a relationship” with their straight girl friends on facebook because it reminds me that my existence is a hilarious joke
Okay, this has been bugging me for 24 hours straight (no pun intended) so…
(a) People using this as a gay joke suck.
(b) I was crazy in love with one of my best friends, at one point in my life. I didn’t quite realize it until it was over (like salt the earth, burn it all down over) but I can easily imagine exploring the idea that it might have been romantic, sexual love, in addition to BFF love by making this post on FB. A lot of jokes aren’t really jokes, they’re safer ways to explore ideas that feel dangerous.
(c) What is wrong with being in a relationship with your best friend, even if it isn’t romantic/sexual or going to be romantic/sexual? Why are romantic/sexual relationships the only ones that “count”?
