That’s a very “No ALL lives matter!” take. Osiris and Saint is literally the only on-screen relationship we’re even aware of that I can recall. Not showing a hetero couple embrace does not make seeing the gay couple embrace virtue signaling. Also, virtue signaling is not inherently bad. Seeing non-hetero couples on screen benefits from being normalized in a way traditional couples don’t, so it is arguably important to see them in that regard. How much impact seeing it in Destiny has (or how much value we should put on that over just good storytelling is an entirely different discussion I’m not all that interested in having).

Aside from also seeing Anna and Elsie embrace, there’s literally a pair of humans in the exact same shot as Osiris and Saint. It’s not an arm on the back, but it is absolutely reaching out for comfort in some way. How nitpicky are we being here?

This is an odd take, I gotta say.
