Ok now I have the excuse to rewatch, cause clearly I missed something…
Lol, it depends on the snuggling, but yeah if two of same gender (or opposite or non-binary) would hug, hold hands, or even holding around each other sleeping together, I wouldn’t even assume them to be LGBT, just friends comforting each other. Unless maybe older guys..:tongueThis sounds somewhat promising, though, that in your mind it must have been so normalised that there was nothing amiss with that scene that you should notice. If that was the case, at least. Here where I live, a lot of people would have been outraged at such portrayals. :grumble
I'd like to see one certain relationship played a bit differently than in the books.
We know that Rand ends up with Aviendha, Min, and Elayne, but I'd like to see Aviendha, Min, and Elayne to also have a relationship with each other that's more than platonic.
But with scenes like these, we make sure that trash people won't join our fandom.
You should have seen my face during that part. I was the embodiment of the heart eyes emoji. I probably even had my chin resting on my fists as I leaned toward the screen with a dreamy sigh.
I also appreciated the humanizing of poly relationships when Lan mentioned that Stepin was only assuming they would want that kind of relationship with him, countering the myth that poly people are open to literally anyone.I loved how casual Lan and Masema were about contemplating if they would enjoy SS relationships. I have said this before, but I love the writers for making it so normal in this world. It takes a deft hand to do it correctly and so far so good.

I'm not entirely clear on whether this counts as spoilers, so hiding it just in case:
