Statistics prove Hollywood is careless with lesbian/bi characters on the big and small screen - AfterEllen
In addition, because the #LexaPledge has been reported in the media, any show in the future considering whether to kill a queer character or keep her alive—whether crewmembers signed the pledge or not—is likely to now do so with the understanding the show will face intense social media scrutiny if it decides to kill the character, and is liable to be accused of furthering the “Bury Your Gays” trope.
