Let's Talk About Steven Universe

Have I mentioned how great Steven Universe is? It's a kid's show full of mostly women and girls with the one magical boy protagonist - a delightful flip of the usual magical girl concept where there's a female protagonist but she's surrounded by male characters to guide her.

And because it's full of women, well, naturally...


Lesbians everywhere.

That's right. A children's show full of lesbians. And I'm not talking about theoretical lesbians. I mean that the show explicitly names the relationship between to female characters as a romantic one. Kisses and everything.

Plus, it's full of wonderful positive messages about consent, honesty, trust, boundaries, and lions.

But really, if you need any reason to watch this show, this comic spells it out nicely.
