Queerbaiting is the silent killer in our televisions. Please, make sure your favorite shows get tested early and often. In the first stages of queerbaiting, the disease is regularly mistaken for actual representation and the start of a romantic arc. Symptoms include lingering physical contact, intense gazes, vague but seemingly meaningful confessions and innuendo-filled dialogue. One of the most prevalent symptoms is referred to by the medical community as “eye sex,” with hundreds of cases on record. So far, the only cure for queerbaiting seems to be not engaging with the show itself, but the more time that passes, the deeper the investment and thus the more difficult the treatment.

It’s sort of like showing up to Thanksgiving having said you’d bring green bean casserole, except you brought a single green bean on a paper plate. Even though this will obviously not feed any of the other guests and barely counts as a green bean casserole, you sneer at those who are protesting, telling them that they never specified what a green bean casserole is and besides that, they’re being whiny babies. You wave the single limp green bean in the air and tell them that it’s obvious they’ll never be happy, that they’re complaining for the sake of complaining and  that it’s no wonder they don’t get to eat quality green bean casserole because nobody wants to share green bean casserole with such an aggressive and unfriendly group. In other words, making a character bisexual only to immediately write them out of the show makes me feel like shoving a green bean up someone’s nose.

Sagrada Família

With its unparalleled Gothic architecture, Sagrada Família is the most stunning Roman Catholic church in the world. Located in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, the church has been under construction for over 160. Designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926), the church is as yet unfinished. However, Sagrada Família was still designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and in November 2010, Pope Benedict XVI consecrated and proclaimed it a minor basilica.

Combining Gothic and Art Nouveau forms, Gaudí devoted his last years to the project. At the time of his death in 1926, it was less than a quarter complete. Sagrada Família’s construction was interrupted again by the Spanish Civil War, only to resume slow progress for many decades. Construction passed the midpoint in 2010 with an anticipated completion date of 2026—the centennial of Gaudí’s death.

The church is composed of three major facades: the Passion facade, the Nativity facade and the Glory facade. Much of the ornate Nativity facade was completed by Gaudí himself. The Passion facade’s graphic nature and gaunt, tortured figures remain true to Gaudí’s original vision, meant to inspire fear and reverence.

The church’s interior is defined by incredible columns that reach majestically toward the ceiling. Gaudí’s plans called for 18 spires, as well as numerous towers, chapels, and portals. When built, the tallest spire, which symbolizes Jesus Christ, will secure Sagrada Família’s place as the world’s largest church building. Relished by the art community, one critic stated that the church is, “The most extraordinary personal interpretation of Gothic architecture since the Middle Ages.”

Eventually, meet her parents, and speak of their daughter as if she put all the stars in the sky, because that’s how she makes you feel. As if she’s opened a whole new world for you. See the pity in their eyes, because they know their child, and they’ve seen her grow up and realized that she would rather write a story than live one.

No one wants to be the person who is made fun of for caring too much about something, who treats in earnest a situation that everyone else considers absurd. Even in personal relationships, feeling too heavily invested while simultaneously understanding that the other person couldn’t be more detached is one of the most profound feelings of embarrassment we can experience. Because it isn’t simply the embarrassment of making a mistake or a poor choice, it’s a shame over the kind of human being you are and how you see the world around you. To be shamed for your sincerity is to be reminded that you are dependent on something which is not dependent on you — that you are, once again, vulnerable.

We hold on so tightly, because we’re terrified of loss. We hold on till our hands bleed. And in that self-shattering persistence, we fail to see the answer: Just let go.

You will fall in love with someone who’s cold and always seemingly pushing you away. When all is said and done, they will be forever known as the one person you couldn’t get to love you. Unfortunately, it will hurt and sting worse than the good ones, the ones that chopped up your meat for you and picked out an eyelash from your eye and were nice to your mother, because love often feels like a game we need to win. And when we lose, when we realize we couldn’t get what we ultimately desired from a person, it makes us feel like a failure and erases all the memories of those who loved us in the past.
