Es girls even Zee is starting to wonder Could they be onto somethin.

Everyone assumes that Zee is a lesbian Her classmates her gym buddi. FULL OWNVOICES REVIEW COMPREHENSIVE RECEIPTSTW homophobia transphobia lesbophobia islamophobia I wish I was gay because no gay person would ever be expected to be good at working out Except Bryan He s not really gay Of course he is but he s Bryan than he is gay so he doesn t count You re welcome goodreads I wanted to stop reading this many times over but I told myself I had to finish it so that I would have the full story and would be able to make complete judgements I finished this so that other ueer teens don t have to Welcome to hell aka this book The Handsome Girl and Her Beautiful Boy tells the story of Zee and Art 2 teens who are presumed to be gay based on the way they present themselves however they both feel as though they re straight and then they fall into a ueer platonic relationship with each other which eventually morphs into a romantic relationship Then they experiment and realize that they re not so straight after all If this were all the book was maybe I would have liked it I can definitely see how this book was TRYING to break stereotypes but you know what it Failed It Tried and it Failed EpicallyDo you ever read a book and think that there is no way that this could be so problematic without trying I m gonna go through and break down every issue I had with this book receipts includedHomophobiaI have a genuine uestion Am I supposed to like Art Because I really would if he weren t the most homophobic little sht I ve ever met That uote at the beginning That s from Mr Arthur Adams hereHe s literally such a homophobe and he treats his best friend SO awfully He knows that Bryan has had a crush on him for YEARS and he seriously leads him on so fcking much it s despicableThere s one scene where he says I m finding you attractive for the first time ever and then I submit You can kiss me AS A JOKE TO HIS BEST FRIEND WHO HAS LIKED HIM FOR YEARSAnd I know he apologizes for it when Bryan doesn t find it funny but it s still so gross Here s another fun part where Art describes Bryan s life Bryan is an only child so he gets whatever he wants New car New clothes New video games and computers and a credit card he can use to buy whatever food he wants whenever he wants He s so lucky His life would be perfect if I was his boyfriend and his parents stopped pretending he wasn t gay So maybe it all euals out Yeah noThis book also really does dirty its other canon gay character Jayden Jayden is a creep and a stalker He s constantly texting Art and he even Freaking Dresses up in the same outfit as Zee to try and get Art to like him That s so creepy and I reaaaaaaalllllllyyyyy hate that this gay character and the lesbian character on her later are both written so awfully I m so sick of the predatory gay trope Next People have kids so they can delude themselves into believing they have cheated death and are now immortal SO do you know what happens when two people have one child and that one child is gay The delusion of immortality dies IT IS MURDERED BY GAY CHILDREN And when the delusion of immortality dies a part of them feels like they re already dead That s why my parents and other parents are terrified their kids are gay All the church religious moral stuff is just a bunch of bologna I don t even this is homophobia AND transphobia and I m just how do writers come up with this sht I live in a very religious household and my parents are extremely homophobic and saying that they re really homophobic because gay kids can t pass on their genes uwu is just gross and wrong and invalidates SO many lgbt youth s experiences with religiously homophobic relatives Also saying that The delusion of immortality IS MURDERED BY GAY CHILDREN is literally so offensive I kind of felt like it was trying to joke that it s not the parents faults that they re homophobic their gay kids are literally MURDERING their dreams Because it s not like LGBT children whose parents reject them are way likely to commit suicide than the ones who accept them And it s not like there s parents out there who have murdered or kicked out their children for being gay But the kids are the ones who are murdering their parents dreams Lmao ok That s BS We were gender and sexually fluid before it was cool because we didn t do it to be cool we did it to be who we truly are Honestly I am so sick of this trope where cishets think that ueer people just say they re ueer because they think it s cool I think my mom Penelope Alvarez says it best in One Day At a Time when she sys yeah she wants the sweet taste of oppression because being a teenager isn t difficult enough We aren t saying we re gay to be part of the trend or whatever we say it because it s WHO WE ARE Acting like it s anything other than that obviously shows that this book has a huge misunderstanding on what it s like to be a ueer person especially a ueer teenager or kid in modern day Jesus Christ LesbophobiaY all why tf am I even surprised The lesbophobia in this book is so gross but I guess that s what I get for reading a book with wlw that s not written by a wlw I literally don t even know how to start so I m just going to jump right in with a uote This is Art talking about Zee I m sure everyone at school thinks she s boring or ugly or a lesbian but she transcends beauty She s androgynous but not in an unsexy way do you guys understand how done I am with men who call masculine girls ugly And saying that androgyny is as a whole unsexy in case you were wondering the answer is so done I don t care if Art is an mlm it s misogyny and lesbophobia and tbh I m sick of itAlso what s with putting the word lesbian with boring and ugly I know it sounds like I m being really nitpicky but after nineteen years of my life having to deal with people calling real life lesbians like me boring and ugly esp if we re gnc it just isn t fun Moving on I also might be trying to decide if I m really a lesbian or maybe I just really like Iris or maybe I just really hate Cam and he s making me a lesbian I really thought that we were past these jokes but cishets are still doing this sht in the year of our lord and savior 2018 I m so sick of the trope where straight girls are like I wish I was gay or saying that hating a guy so much must make them gay I don t know I get that these homophobiclesbophobic things that Zee and Art say in this book are supposed to be jokes and it s supposed to make them uirky but as someone who has had to live their entire life hearing these jokes and sometimes they re not jokes it s really annoying jarring and awful to read this stuff in a book that s supposed to be breaking down walls in the LGBT community These jokes aren t funny for people who have had to live with this crap our entire lives lmao And now for the doozy of all doozies Iris s confession when she and Zee were having their sleepover The only word that I can think of that describes my emotions when I read this is yucky It s just yucky It was so gross and made me feel so bad and angry and GOD I m just gonna put the uote in I m putting it under a spoiler tag not because it s a spoiler but in case any reader just doesn t even want to read it and wants to scroll past It s also very nsfw You have been warned Here goesview spoiler I ll tell you one of my secrets that I ve told no one Not even Pen She pauses again giggles Yeah Oh my god I m so nervous I just told you stuff that s got to be stranger than anything you could possibly tell me I find what you said very normal compared to my secret but we re probably just all terrified of our own secret stuff Good point Okay here I go Iris takes a deep breath When Stacy and I when she would be doing down there She lowered her eyes towards her lap I got it She was great at it she broke my heart but she was great at that but I couldn t finish you know I got it I couldn t finish unless I imagined a boy was Iris did this tiny thrust with her tiny giggle you know I know hide
