“Bury Your Gays,” the all-too-common TV trope of killing queer characters — typically after moments of success or happiness for them — continued for little discernible reason.
In total, more than 25 queer female characters were killed on television screens this year, and fans were not pleased.
“The 100” is perhaps the most egregious example. The show killed off a character just after she consummated her relationship with another woman. Many felt betrayed by the killing, and thought it seemed senseless, so they began their own revolt.
