This is Alexa Willis, 17, and her girlfriend Noemi, 19.

The two live in Austin, Texas, and have been together for over a year. Noemi asked that her last name not be used."Ever since I first met her, I fell in love," Alexa told BuzzFeed News. "And I know this girl is the one for me."

The two live in Austin, Texas, and have been together for over a year. Noemi asked that her last name not be used.

"Ever since I first met her, I fell in love," Alexa told BuzzFeed News. "And I know this girl is the one for me."

In April, Alexa and Noemi ordered personalized debit cards with their photos on them, "so we always think about each other's needs when it comes to spending our money," Alexa said.

my gf n i got customized debit cards💞

A photo of the cards went viral after Noemi tweeted it, with many calling it "goals" and "the cutest shit I've ever seen," as Twitter is wont to do.

On Saturday, popular Twitter account @Relationship — which frequently reposts viral tweets without attribution — stole Noemi's tweet.

...except they changed one teeeeeensy thing.

Yep. They changed "gf" to "bf," pretending the two were actually a straight couple.

People on Twitter were very quick to call that shit out.

Alexa said she found out about the tweet when someone tagged her in it, and it made her upset that those kinds of Twitter accounts "are so heteronormative and couldn't take into consideration it was two girls."

"I also would've liked the credit that it was my girlfriend and I's idea," she added.

"I also would've liked the credit that it was my girlfriend and I's idea," she added.

So she decided to set the record straight.

Naturally, a lot of collective screaming ensued.

And now people are dragging the hell out of @Relationship.

This what happens when wack ass accounts find shit on the internet https://t.co/Bf2s7JaaKI

The @Relationship account has not acknowledged Alexa's little correction, or responded to BuzzFeed News. But Alexa has something she'd like to say to the account owner.

"[It's] very sad to know people don't consider that there ARE gay couples, and it was obvious it was two girls," she said."I would ask the owner of the account why they thought changing it to boyfriend was so important," she said. "And what did they think they would get out of it?"
