Teen dramas love to tackle allllll the issues.
Which means they don’t always tackle them all particularly well. Namely, they use a lot of sensitive subjects for drama’s sake, or romanticize something that is actually bad.
Who can forget the time on Glee, when Sue tried to «commit sue-icide» with vitamin gummies?
Or what about Tyler’s attempted school shooting on 13 Reasons Why?
Or what about shows like Gossip Girl, which depicted sexual assault casually twice in the pilot alone?
Or The Vampire Diaries, which used compulsion to muddle the lines of consent?
Or Pretty Little Liars, which made the villain’s motivation largely centered around the fact that she was trans?
