"I come to bury Tara, not to praise her." E.A. Week slates the "unrealistic" Willow-Tara relationship at SciFidimensions, blaming poor acting and wretched scripts. She says: "Willow and Tara were never about female empowerment or gay equity; they were a straight male's girl-girl fantasy: pretty, passive, long-haired, and childish."
"Their lives had no larger gay context: they had no interest in gay art, no involvement in gay politics or a gay community. They had no gay friends. They conformed to heterosexual norms in every way. They weren't written for a gay audience; they were written to be non-threatening for straight viewers."
Sounds to me like the author wanted an after school special. Sorry, it was 'don't do drugs' this year.
