I doubt The Trevor Project would support and promote “Faking It” if it was so horribly homophobic as many of you claim it is.
I am hoping that the show will adress the issues of the straight guy fetishising lesbians & faking to be lesbians of course.
I am glad that Amy’s storyline is about her falling in love with Karma and dealing with her sexuality because it’s not “faking” to her.
Can I also add that many of the cast and the exec. producer have all touched on the immediately negative feedback (despite the majority of these people never having watched the pilot) and have said “hey we’re aware of all the things you guys are afraid of being portrayed badly so we made this show with those things in mind and did our best to show positive representation”
And seriously the people who bitch about this show need to actually sit down and watch Rita Volk talk about her character and the issues Amy goes through as well as addresses the immediate assumptions made. You guys could learn a thing or two and maybe stop jumping to conclusions about the people behind this show.
