Follow TV Tropes
From the title I assumed this was about mostly straight people that "settle for gay".
I'm not sure if this is even a trope, really. I guess it fits as "a phenomenon that has occurred more than once in fiction", but it still bothers me, somehow...
I suppose I'm a bit on-edge about it because it has a nest of Unfortunate Implications in its usage, if only because of situations I've dealt with, personally.
Yes, it's a dodgy trope, just like Rape and Switch, Bury Your Gays, and Magical Negro. However, we're a cataloguer of fiction, and that means that we catalogue the creepy stuff, too. Because fiction can get way creepy.
At least the description doesn't seem too positive, from my quick skim of it. We've had problems with that in the past.
