I really can't even begin to express how important Uranus and Neptune are to me - growing up, they were the first time I saw a lesbian couple in a media that was accessible to me as a kid. not only that but they were FUCKING COOL, it wasn't dirty or shameful or gross the way you would usually here someone say "oh she's a lesbian" like it was this unfortunate disease, michiru and haruka were bad ass and all the other girls loved them. Their relationship was passionate and insanely romantic, it wasn't there for men's entertainment, it wasn't this unknown background noise that took the creator years after the show ended to admit, it was OBVIOUS. even as a kid I knew they were a couple (tbh I thought it was weird cousins were dating each other lmao), it was a shining beacon of hope that are relationships between women could be just as intense and meaningful and GOOD as a relationship between a man and a woman. it was the first time I saw this was even an option - if you're not a woman you might not fully understand HOW MUCH you get beaten over the head from the second you're born with GET MARRIED HAVE KIDS FIND A MAN - which, is bad even for non-gay women, deriving self worth from our ability to get a husband/have kids is a terrible thing to instill in girls, but that's what's done in this culture - but for gay girls it just seems like this hopeless inevitability because as a kid you aren't SHOWN that there are other options - so when sailor moon season 3 started airing in the 90's and had this BEAUTIFUL, COOL, STRONG lesbian couple who absolutely loved each other it was totally unforgettable. I still cry when i think about it, because even now I'm hard pressed to think of lesbian couples that don't end in tragedy. Haruka and Michiru were the ultimate cheeseball, Till Death Do Us Part Complete Each Other romance, which for straight couples are everywhere, but for lesbians and gay men doesn't really exist. I'm very very grateful to sailor moon for showing a generation SO many types of women and female relationships, including a romantic one.

Gay people need rolemodels too, especially when they're growing up. I just hope that things change for the better in the future regarding this subject.
I love that shot very much
