Okay, this literally made me burst into tears.
Jake English is a sad and confused little boy who has lived on an island by himself for his entire life. While it is true that pretty much all his friends have had romantic feelings toward him at at least some point, he was unaware of them until very recently, when they seemed to all come out of nowhere. His only romantic experience was with Dirk, which is a relationship that he was almost pressured into due to his naive nature and inexperience. Jake has had no exposure to this kind of blatant and shameless sexualization and all he wants is for things to go back to the way they were- with him on his secluded island, by himself, able to go on romanticized adventures and watch movies featuring lovely blue ladies. He’s been driven to the point where he wants this adventure (which, mind you, he’s been yearning for his entire life) to end, because it’s not anything that he expected it to be.
So in other words, Andrew Fucking Hussie has literally just finished teaching us a lesson in respecting women and he is now teaching us a lesson in respecting men.
Respect everyone. Love thy neighbor. Read Homestuck.
