lesbian couples in animation is the cheapest and least "revolutionary" way by far to inject your agenda.
at best, you're just giving into society's general temperament that gays are alright as long as I like looking at them. at worst, you're injecting your fetishistic headcanons into the material. regardless, it always undermines the point to some degree.
to me, it's far more important to represent gay characters in a fashion in which most gay youths will actually relate to in a healthy manner. which is to say, a gay character who takes comfort in having friends that accept them for who they are. to my knowledge, the only show that has ever done this take is Static Shock, which is overall still one of the best shows that tackle hard topics.
what kind of message do you send when you set up the token lesbian character with the other more recent token lesbian character?
sure it's harmless the first few times but then it becomes a canned trend >>114983848
and you just end up making it seem like a fantasy.
most gay people won't ever be able to associate with other gay people well after high school, or even past 20
