always people

i hope you’re all aware of the 300 recently discovered love letters between two gay british soldiers during ww2 that are going to be possibly adapted into a film.

they’re beautiful and poetic and tragic and heart-wrenching and brave. i highly suggest going and reading the excerpts. 

here’s the one that broke my heart:

“Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all our letters could be published in the future in a more enlightened time. Then all the world could see how in love we are.“

OK but gay country music would go so hard though. Ladies singing about the girl in cut offs sitting next to them in their truck, dudes singing about showing off for the farmers son, bi people singing about how the county fair is hot but it ain’t cause of the heat. 90% of country music could be fixed if we removed the heteronormativity

But we’re a million worlds apart..

  • Peter: I came out to have a good time and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now
  • Wade: I came out to attack people and I’m honestly having such a good time right now.

i always see wholesome posts about loving your mom and giving her the world. those posts are fine and all, i’m glad you guys love your moms and have happy healthy relationships. but for some of us it just isn’t realistic, so this one goes out to everyone who’s stomach twists when they see those posts because their mom isn’t a good person and because they don’t have a good relationship with her. you don’t have to love your mom, you don’t have to love any of your family members. you choose to love who treats you right, don’t let posts like that make you feel bad for not liking your mom.

“if lgbt+ people have always existed then why aren’t they in history books?” shit. you got us sharon. you’re right, we’re a recent invention. the truth is, chad, gay people were invented in 1974 when there was a m*a*s*h episode about a gay soldier. bisexuality wasn’t invented until freddie mercury wrote “bicycle race” in the late 70s. the song starts with him going “BI” really loudly and we were like hey thats a cool idea lets be into multiple genders. and then ellen invented lesbians in the late 90s on her sitcom that was pretty cool. please don’t be mad at me fellow gays i just thought it was about time to give up the ruse, donna over here already figured it out anyway

ok i already wasn’t stoked on the chainsmokers collaborating with bts but the fact that they have the nerve to make a joke about people in china eating dogs and then try to play it off as though they’re “raising awareness” is absolute bullshit. (full video here.)

how are you going to sit there and laugh about a controversial issue in an asian country when you’re about to benefit from exposure that an asian group is going to stir up for you?? 

not to mention, their careless joke spreads the notion that all chinese people eat dog when, in reality, the majority of the general population, as well as the government, don’t support the yulin festival and the initial protests against the festival were started within the local chinese population. 

the stereotype of all asians eating dog has always been a harmful one and one that’s based in the idea that asian cultures are somehow “primitive” in comparison to western ideals. 

laughing over a tasteless joke is bad enough but using it as an excuse to pretend they’re activists is worse. honestly these white boys can peace the fuck out and i hope bts pulls the song they collaborated on together  👋🏼
