Romantic love, as we understand it, is a colonial construct. It is an all-consuming, possessive, lifelong, monogamous endeavor that works to sustain capitalism and white supremacist heteropatriarchy via the nuclear family. We are told that this romantic love is essential, shaping it as a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Were we to sustain ourselves on self-love, platonic love, and love of community, what could change?
We could see the beauty of our interdependence, rather than individuals competing for higher wages and standards of living at the expense of each other. The formation of families, rather than communities, creates hierarchies of which people are worthy and deserving of our attention, protection and devotion. With a restructuring of romantic love as comparable to community/platonic/self-love, we begin to prioritize the care and livelihood of entire larger groups of people as equally important as our romantic partner/s.
I don’t watch the show but I don’t care, this is AWESOME
I’m pretty sure they had this video deleted from youtube, because it used to be there, and then one day I was looking for it to show to someone, and it was nowhere to be found. It will however live on in gifs forever.
The blond chick is just leaning back grinning and the other girl is getting excited and then there’s just the dude in the middle going
"I fucked up."
Here is the video from Troian Bellisario’s interview on Good Day L.A. in case you wanted to watch.
