“LOL FUSIONS ARE GEM SEX XDDDD” haha nah son, fusions are obviously an extremely intimate relationship between gems, sometimes romantic, but reading them as a direct analogy for sex is seriously missing the point

are fusions a cool way to teach children about consent and boundaries in relationships? yes! do some fusions have romantic undertones? absolutely! do these things automatically equate to sex? wow, no

i don’t think there would be literally an entire episode where steven and connie – two children – were fused together, & this state of being was encouraged as being healthy and natural by garnet, if it was the equivalent of sweet space rock fuckin

this is kids’ tv, not everything is about sex, don’t be boring
