Honestly, that's kind of how I feel. Especially when that's the only or primary way that the author communicates "bigoted environment".

I know I might be projecting a bit because I actually did grow up gay in a repressed, small town, USAFB-type setting, but I always just want to bang my head against my desk and go, "No! That is not how this works. Do you have any idea the lack of community, the lack of support, the lack of any consideration that anyone could be anything but heterosexual all the damn time no matter what basically from birth, the constant flaunting of straight sexuality that just does not go away that your characters should be facing if you want to pull off what you claim to be writing?"

And I know I'm being unfair at least a bit because fandom is all about escapism. I wouldn't read stories where everyone is magically queer if I didn't love me some escapism. But there's escapist fiction, and then there's being downright disrespectful to the lived experiences of actual, real life people, and this sort of thing always feels like the latter to me.

TL;DR: I have issues like National Geographic.
