It's 2020. Cishet stories are tired. (And so am I.)

Do y'all watch cartoons? No? Lovely. Please bear with me. 

If you DO watch cartoons, you probably know of this Cartoon Network show called “Craig of the Creek.” It’s about this lil’ Black kid named Craig who basically has all these dope ass adventures in a creek near his house. We really out here in 2020 with a whole children’s cartoon show about a Black kid and his Black ass family. (There’s also a lot of queer vibes and racial diversity among secondary characters. You should definitely watch this show.) Watching this show had me hype, always. But then, I found out it was created by two cis, presumably straight white guys.
