Everyone in this fucking thread is missing the point. EVERYONE. Not a single fucking post gets it right, not a single response has any more than a third of the truth.
The fucking point isn't that they weren't or were not lesbians. The fucking point isn't that their sexuality was forced into the show. The POINT, you fucking oblivious goddamn cumsock huffing troglodytes, is that they were clearly EX GIRLFRIENDS.
It's clear, even from "what was missing" what the writers were implying between them. The PROBLEM, is that the show NEVER, not once, attempts to make them any more endearing to each other than when they broke up. It's clear that they have some HUGE conflicts in personality and hobbies, with Marcy being more carefree and artistic, while PB is more controlling, work oriented and responsible. It's clear that it didn't work once between them. Did they forget? Did the writers forget? Or are they supposed to be realistic in the sense that people do that retarded shit all the time by viewing the past relationship through rose tinted glasses?
In what way, in what fucking UNIVERSE do you think that relationship could survive more than a month? Stakes did not change them enough to make it work, PB went right back from the cabin to her kingdom, and the writers hiding Marcy behind a curtain for 3 seasons didn't make me forget her personality.
