This video came out last week, and it’s about “misconceptions” people have about lesbians. Scarlett and Vivianne are both in it, so it seems really fancy:

  1. Oh my god you guys. The part where Kelsey says “I like the way I am” and then smiles? I MELTED. TOO CUTE, CAN’T HELP IT.

    Also, who doesn’t love coming out stories? I never get tired of hearing them!

  2. I don’t care about the contrived, spliced and diced drama featured on the actual show. THESE are the kinds of stories I’m interested in hearing about.

    Also, I’m not even gay, but I would totally do Scarlett in a heartbeat. Just sayin’.
