Teen Magazine, Girlfriend, shares just a few issues they have noticed with the new Netflix show, “Sierra Burgess Is a Loser.”

For start, can I just say the title itself sounds pretty degrading….

“Sierra Burgess Is a Loser” is about an ambitious but unpopular high-schooler who starts exchanging texts with a guy she finds herself falling for — except he thinks she is Veronica, the most popular girl in school.

The review of the series by Girlfriend mag sums it up as “a trash-fire MESS of homophobia, transophobia, fat-shaming, revenge porn and sexual assault. Not to mention the entire film is based on cat-fishing.”

The issues with “Sierra Burgess Is a Loser” according to Girlfriend…

Homophobia

ELLE Australia also shared their disappointment at the show and how it was not what they expected at all. They were “VERY surprised when Sierra went full-Mean Girls.”
