It seems those days, thankfully, are gone.
Now, Dove Cameron is stepping from the traditional Disney star spotlight into the arms of a woman and the world is embracing her.
Cameron was spotted out and about holding hands with fellow actress Kiersey Clemons in Vegas. The two then got complementing tattoos and kissed one another on Snapchat. You can bet the world took note.
She then seemed to confirm rumors that she and Clemons are dating and also that she is gay when she liked the following tweets.
@DoveCameron like this if your gay or like this if your gay

Whether Clemons and Cameron are just friends or something more remains to be seen, but the point is we’ve entered a new era of sexuality in which Disney stars don’t have to fear tarnishing their innocent reputations by being themselves.
Now that is something to celebrate.
Cameron hasn’t commented yet on the fervor caused by her kiss with Clemons, but she doesn’t seem to mind, seeing as how she was all for considering a relationship with Bella Thorne when a fan joked about it on Twitter.
Yeah trust me. I have thought about it😉😚 https://t.co/cPQMgkKdKn

Thorne came out as bisexual in August 2016 shortly after her split from longtime boyfriend Greg Sulkin.
Disney also hasn’t commented on their young starlets personal life. Nor do I think they should. What she does in her free time should be her business and her choice.
