** Meta example: as mentioned elsewhere on this page, the original series faced a lot of backlash from lesbian and bisexual women for arguably offensive portrayals of female same-sex attraction. In particular, much ire was drawn from the show having no canonically bisexual or lesbian female characters (which some fans felt was especially grating given that there are at least four lgbt male characters in the show: despite the main demographic being teenage girls, the only lgbt representation is for men) and portraying “straight” female characters kissing as a silly, drunk mistake. Several of the remakes have chosen to include lesbian and bisexual female characters.[[note]]Skam Netherlands has Janna (the Chris counterpart) as bisexual; Druck makes Mia (the Noora counterpart) bisexual; Skam France has Alexia (the Chris counterpart) as bisexual; Skam Spain has Cris and Joana as two bisexual girls in a coming out storyline similar to Isak and Evens from the OG; and Skam Austin has Eve (the Eskild counterpart) and changed their Isak equivalent to a closeted lesbian named Shay and presumably will have a female pansexual Even character.[[/note]]

** [[spoiler:Noora confronting Nicolai]] at the diner in season 2, throwing his own cocky attitude and blackmailing over having her nude photo in his face when she points out that having that photo is actually illegal and he could go to jail, along with having recorded everything he said.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Before season 4, many fans theorized if Vilde was secretly gay. Despite her obsession with William, it could be read as a typical teenage crush getting attached to the guy taking her virginity and showing her kindness while she had low self-esteem, while she still showed many signs of being uncomfortable with having sex with a guy such as having to get drunk to do it. Meanwhile, she displayed many typical sides of a LipstickLesbian, was very comfortable being intimate with the girl squad and didn't mind making out with Eva at a party. Come season 4, however, and she starts dating Magnus, which, due to the above, felt to many like a wasted potential and became subject to some criticism (see below).

** Season 2 is about [[spoiler:Noora's]] increasing problems over [[spoiler:being drugged at a party, having her nude photo taken and being tricked by the perpetrator to believe she slept with him while being out of it.]] The season becomes a lot harder to watch when not long after, a worrying statistic erupted of many Norwegian teenagers (mostly girls) having photos or videos taken of them naked, or worse, during sexual activities, then spread online afterwards. Thanks to this trend, the scene where [[spoiler:Noora]] confronts [[spoiler:Nicolai]] at the diner has been considered all the more important in hindsight for pointing out that possessing photos or videos of naked people below the age of 18 if discovered '''''will land you in jail.'''''
