inability to "Find The Right Chemistry "the right chemistry man Such a Dance and her sneaking suspicion that herwareness of women might meant that she may not be in fact perfectly straight I liked that everything wasn t cut nd dry with her story She had ttractions to men I mean how did I NOT realize that lesbians being ttracted to Harry Styles is thing nd lots of crushes so the dawning realization that she was in fact gay wasn t something that she woke up knowing one day There were years where she debated with herself something I found to be relatable nd realistic I personally consider myself to be straight but perhaps my little okay strong ttraction to Shane from The L Word nd than La bte du marais a passingttraction to Laos: Keystone Of Indochina a certain type of butch
