People who are still in denial that this was anything less than romantic or simply the by-product of a post-apocalyptic world need to grow up. It was when I realized at the first time she kissed Riley,I mean I've been thinking about this except this is before ND confirmed that Ellie was not straight. Why don't we extend that same level of openness all the time? Being gay or lesbian is a choice.
