Lana wachowski dating
It’s amazing (and it shouldn’t be such a novelty, but it is) to see such a solid romantic relationship between a cis woman and a trans woman.
It got me thinking about another Netflix show that features a trans female character, Laverne Cox’s Sophia Burset on , we see a cis-trans relationship that works, and for this cis woman, it’s a much-needed and much-appreciated bit of representation.
When I first told my family and friends about my girlfriend, the near-universal response was While I was grateful that their only concern was my happiness, it also saddened me a bit that it seemed so impossible to them that this relationship could make me happy that they asked me this several times.
I think that a better understanding about what being trans is, and greater visibility of trans characters in relationships in media can go a long way toward showing well-meaning people like my family and friends that being in love with a trans person is not only possible, but can be hugely rewarding. Speaking of being the cis half of a cis-trans relationship, another thing I love about Nomi and Amanita is Amanita’s honesty about the beginning of their relationship.
Just as there was a time in my life when the idea of me falling in love with someone like you – honestly – even I would’ve said it was impossible.
And yet, there we are…and from the moment my two lips touched these two lips, I learned one of the most important lessons of my life. While Amanita is a lesbian (as far as I know – so far, we haven’t seen her express interest in men or say anything on the subject other than the above quote), and I’m not, I identify with this moment so much.
They make me want to squee with happiness at what’s possible in this big, beautiful world. With Nomi being white and Amanita being black (with a white mother, no less), I would love to see Season 2 bring some more intersectionality into this shizz!
Suddenly, that person is in a queer relationship that they didn’t necessarily sign up for.
