That kinda bothers me actually, I get that she doesn't like the trope but it seems self defeating. She still isn't treating gay characters the same as straight ones. It actually comes across as vaguely patronising, like gay people are in need of her protection. It worries me that she might be another privileged white girl who doesn't quite understand the difference between being an ally and being a white saviour. I get not killing off the shows only explicitly gay character because of the history but saying never killing him off ever just because he is gay seems off too.
