Imagine a world where every experience was equally represented in film, and you might find out what it would look like if lesbian movies were realistic. Let's say rom-coms with same-sex lead couples were commonplace, if you were to make them realistic as well, this is what BuzzFeed imagines it would look like. The video is both a commentary on how silly it is that we don't have same-sex couples widely represented in romantic movies, and how it can be hard to be a woman seeking a woman when society has some pretty warped conceptions of what that entails. Let's just say the main preoccupation of the people the protagonist meets is "girl-on-girl" rather than actual, sincere romance.
The video centers on a woman who is looking for love with another woman, but keeps coming up against a sea of straight girls, many of whom are either "experimenting" or looking for a threesome to have with their boyfriend. It highlights a sorry state where lesbianism is fetishized by straight people, and as a result diminished. You will feel the lead characters frustration with the world, and also giggle, because the faux trailer is just a pretty great parody of rom-coms in general. Here's a little look at the realistic lesbian romance movie...
