Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda {Quote It Wednesday}

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!

Today’s quote is in honor of Pride Month and one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite LGBTQIA+ themed books: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

I love this quote for the simple truth it holds. Why is straight the default? Why do we always assume everyone we meet is straight until proven otherwise? Why shouldn’t straight people have to come out too? Sexuality should indeed not just be assumed. There should not be a default.

Either way, I adore this book and you should definitely read it. And watch the movie. Because there is an awesome fantasy sequence where straight kids come out as straight to their parents and it is HILARIOUS. (you can even already see it in the trailer)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS QUOTE?
Do you have any more lgbtqia+ books and quote suggestions for me?
