happy mother’s day!
↳ favorite moms — stefanie marie & lena elizabeth adams foster, the fosters (2013-present)

we did not give you the gift of life
but in our hearts we know
the love we feel is deep and real
as if it had been so

for us to have each other
is like a dream come true
no, we did not give you the gift of life
life gave us the gift of you

Bradley Bredeweg — just curious if he intentionally or unintentionally wrote Brandon to fit into classic definition of ‘rape culture.’ 
I say culture, because it is insidious. But how many times has Callie told Brandon no since season 1a? (One time was Cole but Brandon didn’t know that.)
Brandon didn’t really accept it. His mother told him that he couldn’t date a foster sibling. He lied to her face about his thoughts and feelings.
Brandon told Callie that he didn’t like to see her dating other people. Callie told him that she couldn’t date a foster sibling because it would endanger both her and her brother.
Brandon continued to toss her puppy dog eyes and hit on her. (See episode 9.)
Callie does make her one and only move after Stef and Lena ask to adopt her…that move is self-destructive.
Brandon learns that Callie doesn’t have her privileges, that no one is allowed to see her, but he decides to go see her anyway.
Brandon gets a restraining order against him to keep him away from Callie, but he violates it and threatens Callie’s place in this halfway house. Her alternative? Likely juvenile detention.
Brandon receives multiple texts from Callie to leave her alone. He completely and utterly refuses to listen to what he assumes is her telling him what she wants. 
Brandon wants Callie to give up everything so that she can be his girlfriend. He doesn’t care about her or her brother Jude or his parents. He cares about getting into the pants of this girl he ‘loves.’
The only reason Brandon agrees with Callie in episode 15 is because, after getting the brush off from her all day and witnessing her hug his mom, he realizes that she’s not picking him. He is nice only because he doesn’t have any other option. 
Do I understand where Brandon is coming from? Yes. Do I think he’s going to learn and grow from this hard life lesson? Yes. Do I think he’s been a real selfish, myopic and privileged jerk throughout? 100x yes.

Anonymous said: I am not a particular big fan of brandon nor braille - but im a bit surprised of all the hate he gets in the gaydebunch tag. Because - he is just a boy of 16 that forms a connection and falls in love with a girl, and then the world tells him their love can not exist. So he reacts with defiance, but in the end he realize there is a better path for them. I think a lot of people can think back to their youth and identify with the tunnel vision teenagers often get stuck in, especially when in love.

heatherannehogan:

I think the problem with Brandon — or, well, the reason there is so much frustration about him re: #GaydyBunch — is that his story is juxtaposed to: a) An interracial lesbian couple who has fought against Prop. 8 to be legally married; b) a transgender teenager whose family has ostracized him and so he chooses to risk his life rather than be confined to a body that doesn’t match his gender identity; and c) a gender atypical tween who just wants a safe place to call home. He also seems completely unable to understand that no means no, which of course taps into that cultural discussion we’re having right now about rape culture. Brandon seems like a pretty good dude, but his brand of straight white male entitlement/myopia always has the potential to be off-putting, and to a group of queer women who have fought so hard and so long for just basic civil rights, it is bamboozling and infuriating in the extreme.

Or, as my favorite Fosters recapper, Lucy Hallowell, said to me in an email a few minutes ago:

Previously on The Fosters:

Callie told Brandon she would be homeless if they got together and he tried to get in her pants.
Callie told Brandon to back off and he tried to get in her pants.
Jude told Brandon to back off and he tried to get in Callie’s pants.
Brandon’s moms got married and Brandon tried to get in Callie’s pants
Brandon’s grandfather died and he tried to get in Callie’s pants.
Callie told Brandon they were done and he was like “oh I get it now that you’ll be homeless and family-less if I don’t back off, aren’t I super sensitive?”
Sure, he’s 16, but his brain isn’t literally his penis.

"You know it’s not all on you, you know. Its on me too. when we got married that night and the next morning I felt like we were more in love then ever. Like we were zipped up in the same skin. I’ve never felt so happy, so close to you. I want that feeling back. I want us back. I know that we can’t always be as connected as we were on our wedding night. You can’t blame me for wishing that we could. And for missing you."
