Just A Reminder That "6teen" Had The Chillest Queer Subplot Way Back In 2010
Why is this so hard.
Remember 6teen? Well you should, because it was a bomb-ass '00s cartoon that accurately captured the importance of local malls to the teenage experience.
It was Season 4, Episode 11. The mall was hosting a Sadie Hawkins dance where the girls have to ask the guys out. Jonesy is of course waiting for Nikki to pop the question
But she's too busy with her new friend, Jean.
Nikki gushes about Jean to her friends and buys her lunch. Jean gives Nikki a heartfelt gift. Basically it's a classic romcom setup.
Everyone notices the will-they-or-won't-they vibe, except for Nikki. But her friends don't make fun of her, they don't make guesses about Jean's sexuality, they just call it like it is.
And when Nikki starts poking around to see what's up with Jean, it's Nikki who gets put in her place.
If anything, Nikki just likes her friend even more.
Later we even get to see Jean and her date at the dance looking fly as fuck. Wasn't that easy?
