->''"[...]at least 20% of queer characters on TV die. [...] if 20% of straight characters died it would not have such a negative effect on the relevant community - and not just because there's something like 15x more straight characters on TV. They are not a minority. Not every straight character dying will matter to every straight person because the fact they are straight does not matter - there are many that will because different people will associate with different characters who share traits with them. But every queer character death matters to every member of the queer community - sometimes because their sexuality or gender identity is a large part of their characterization, but always because this is a representative minority being removed from society in the most final (and often tragic) way. It is already hard to feel normal in the world with a queer identity, even if transient to your person and yes still today, so taking out representation that queer people can identify with is sacking the minority, devaluing visibility and reducing positivity for the queer minority, and matters more than (straight) character deaths. [...] It would absolutely be sad and shitty if it became a noticeable trend that straight characters were dying, but it may take more to get there because they are not these rare precious lights that queer characters are, because often their sexuality is an easily overlooked aspect of their character (i.e. is rather unimportant to the demographic they are representing), and because their deaths (especially of straight white men) are usually not cheap. It is the randomness, the cheapness, the lack of meaning and value to many queer character deaths that makes them more uncomfortable and thus recognizable than an important death either as conclusion to/part of a good plotline or as initiating its own story (that isn't the dead character's partner being miserable). [...] the effect on straight communities - even if the straight characters got the same treatment - in this world where straight people are the prioritized majority would not be as negative as the effect that Bury Your Gays has on queer communities because it is a reinforcement of real world feelings of being invaluable that straight people likely cannot understand (in terms of sexual identity, [because] racial minorities experience a similar thing, look to the reactions of surprised joy at ''Film/BlackPanther'', for example). [...] One every now and again? Shit happens. One on every other show, every other season? The queer viewers will start to feel attacked."''
