"In tiny increments since his first encounter with Ian, and at clear risk to his own safety, Mickey has pushed himself further and further past his fear. We are reminded of the time Mickey, returning from a stint in juvenile detention, greeted Ian with a deceptively terse, ‘Missed ya.’ Of Mickey and Ian’s first kiss, hurried and nervous, long after they began meeting for sex. Of the futile, single-word plea – ‘Don’t’ – when Ian told him he was enlisting in the Army. Of Mickey’s hesitant response to a stranger who asked, of his relationship with Ian, ‘Did you guys just meet last night, or are you together?’ Finally, after a pause: ‘Together.’

This, all of this, is what coming out looks like. And this is what Mickey Milkovich’s relevance truly hinges on: not only an acknowledgment of the suffering and self-denial that is still a reality in the lives of many LGBTQ people; but the validation that coming out is not irrelevant or passé or an all-or-nothing game. No matter how small and unwhole these acts of disclosure may seem, they are still brave.”

-Amanda Schumacher
(Shameless Self-Disclosure: Showtime’s Unlikely Coming Out Story)

Cannot impress strongly enough how you should be watching Shameless. Gratuitous gif aside — and let’s face it, gay white boys on tv are like the used dryer sheets of fandom, but it’s where many of us started and I always have room to appreciate — the writing is so fucking good. I like, forgot how I used to like banter, dialogue, cutting words and broken off sentences, people saying exactly what they mean exactly when they mean to, forcing you to suspend your belief. Believing in the perfection of consistent characterization. And the acting is ridiculous, the acting is superb. Get some before it gets big.
