“Feet don’t fail me now, take me to the kara´s arms
Oh my heart it breaks every step that i take,
But they are open up the gates and tell me,
I’m in Daxam
Come and take a walk on the gay side,
Let me kiss you hard on the pouring rain
You like your Luthors gay,
Choose your last words this is the last time cause,
Kara and I,
We were born to fuck”

The Creators of Yuri on Ice
  • Episode one: let's make the gay really subtle and not distract from the story line
  • Episode two: Just make the opening a little gayer and have Viktor touch Yuri a bunch, but in a teasing flirting way. We don't want to go overboard
  • Episode four: Let's just straight up have Viktor ask to be Yuri's lover. That should get everyone on the same page
  • Episode seven: Make them kiss ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  • Episode nine: They're still??? not??? convinced??? After that? Ok, so this time do like a really big dramatic airport scene where they run at each other and Yuri uses the same words as a proposal to ask Viktor to stay with him. But still keep it subtle. We're going For sub-context here to let the audience figure it out.

Don't average kids just discover their straight more easily than gay kids discover they aren't straight anyway? Most gay kids spend their childhood years assuming their gay crushes are just thinking someone is cool, mostly because they have a mom and dad, so that means they wanna imitate their parents to a degree as part of regular child development. Then during or after puberty, the difference between liking someone a lot and being attracted to them becomes too distinct to be ignored. That's h

hey @ goyim who are writing jewish characters -

k*ke isn’t a slur that’s being reclaimed by basically anyone. jewish characters would never call themselves k*kes and when you put that language in their mouths, it just reads very Wrong and also extremely offensive

it’s very different from a gay character calling themselves a queer or a female character calling herself a bitch. okay? it’s just a different realm of slur. don’t use that word and especially don’t put it in your jewish characters’ voices, as if that makes it better somehow

follow up to the last anon imagine tho allura's like "lesbian? That's the prettiest name I've ever heard!!!" She incorporates it into her title "Hello, I am Allura, lesbian princess of Altea," the paladins don't have the heart to tell her that's not exactly how you would use the word but other alien species have no clue what it means. They think it's some sort of title and diplomacy has never gone smoother. ("She's not just a princess, she's a /lesbian/ princess! She must be really powerful!!")

im gonna cry i LOVE this, l o l

Also, the term "the blacks" dehumanizes us. Like "the gays," it suppresses the word "people," so you don't hear "black PEOPLE" or "gay PEOPLE," you just hear "the blacks," or "the gays," like we're another species.

anonymous asked:

I'm an asexual, demi romantic female. Which is a mouthful. Because I'm dating a woman, people assume that I'm gay or bi. So I general just feel most comfortable using the term queer. But lately I've been told that asexuals can't use that term. I don't want to disrespect anyone in the community. Is there a more appropriate term I can use that isn't long or uncomfortable?

Actually, you can use queer however the hell you want. Queer is sort of like an umbrella term within the community, and the only box you need to check to fit in under it is “not straight or cis”. Asexuals are more than welcome to use the word queer if that’s what they feel comfortable with (some don’t, and that’s chill too).

anonymous asked:

Hi! Um I was wondering i want to have a relationship with these two girls as a subplot in my book but I don't want to erase the ace ones identity because I can't say that she's ace outright because of the fact that my world is high fantasy and doesn't have the words for sexual orientations and I don't want people to think that she's cold and distant because of the fact that's she's ace because that's basically her personality but I don't know how to properly represent her. Any advice? Thanks x

Why would a high fantasy world not have useful words in their language like orientations etc? They don’t have to be the same as ours, and can be cute and clever. But if humans exist, then their orientations and expressions also exist, and people like to name things. 

You don’t think Medieval Europe (which most high fantasy seems to be based on) had such words and terms? (I have always been a little fond of “Uranian” for a young gay male, what we might call a “twink” today)

But for an Ace characters, why not simply, “they enjoy not the fleshy pleasures, neither with women nor with men (nor orcs or ents or whatever)?”

Don’t overthink it. Keep it simple and clear. Or go complicated if you want: “asexual” is from Latin roots.Our dooctors and scientists tend to mostly use Latin roots. So what do wizards/alchemists/chirugeons  use for their working language? Maybe something from that?

anonymous asked:

"transvestite" is so insulting. no one can stop you from hating trans people but if you hate a group that slurs have been used against, you don't get to use those slurs. like it doesn't matter if you think transgender people are lgbt or whatever but you have to be pretty disgusting to refer to a group of people by the slur some of us will be called while being subjected to hate crimes. trans women get fucking murdered while having that word thrown at them.

M’dude. Do you know anything about gay history? The term “transgender” and even the concept of it is a pretty modern invention. Back in the 60′s, when Stonewall happened, there were transvestites and transsexuals. That’s what the “T” that was eventually added to LGB stood for. Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera? They were transvestites. 

Therefore I was using “transvestite” in its historical context. Unlike the rest of tumblr I’m not going to attempt to erase gay history.

Hey, I just wanna ask why you immediately assume ace inclusionists are homophobic? I understand that gay people face far more hardships and such and ace people have it easy by comparison, but I don't find that the idea of considering ace people queer is inherently homophobic. Apologies if this was worded poorly, I'm a fan of your blog and this has just been bugging me

don’t think ace inclusionists are homophobic especially since many are gay anyways.

But The community makes me terribly uncomfortable. mocking the AIDS crisis, claiming that gay people getting more access to resources is “aphobic”, using terms like allosexual, causing useless divides between the gay and bi community, etc.

Just today I saw someone threaten to snap the necks of any LGBT person who doesn’t allow them in their public spaces. And a few months prior, someone exclaimed they hated gay people and ace inclusionists rushed to their defense.

They also have issues with accepting flaws within their community. Instead of acknowledging issues they’d much rather point figures and say “oh yeah well exclusionists _________”. And I was accused of being aphobic and blocked by several su discourse blogs for calling out misogynoir and the unwanted desexualization of a black lesbian.

It’s just. a really bad community. Even if I agreed with them, I would want nothing to do with that community

anonymous asked: is it harmful to bi people? I'm a bi person who uses the term gay; I don't find it harmful to choose that for myself. The pan person who's blog started all this chooses to call themselves gay, and they can, because gay is a term that people can choose to use, just like queer

It’s harmful because it’s literally erasing who you are and calling yourself something else. Gay means people who are exclusively attracted to their own gender. Please don’t steal the only word we have to describe ourselves.

anonymous asked:

Hello I was just wondering. I've seen a lot on the Asexual tags the Jughead is ace, but the writer said he is gay. I've also been told that saying he is ace is trying to erase the fact that he was one of he first gay characters 60-something years ago. Personally, I don't know much about the character. From what I've seen I think he's. Ace but I'm just wondering what you're options are ❤️❤️

There’s like not a thing true thing about this that’s true. The writer said aro ace, the comic outright uses the word asexual. Jughead was never labeled as gay. He was not the first rep in the series. Kevin was. The “gay coding” was queer coding in that he doesn’t like woman. Which isn’t even true because there’s a series there he married and has a kid and it’s coded as demiromantic.

TLDR: He’s aro ace don’t let assholes waste your time

i just don't get why kubo is being so no-homo about this?? like part of the reason why the show is so popular is that it had LGBT representation (or we thought it did or whatever) and that's helped build this huge fanbase, so like i don't get why she's pulling this :// also like that ring scene was clearly romantic and all like ??? im so confused and hurt

BIG SAME me and my friends are all talking about this and we’re so confused. i hate to use this word cause it sounds too dramatic but it feels like we’ve all been backstabbed LOL. Kubo took costume inspiration from real life gay skaters!! and the signs are all there that this is a gay love story and then she pulls this shit?? she needs to be more aware of the impact of this story that SHE has created. you can’t create something one way and then crush everyone’s hopes like that and expect everything to be okay. I’m really hoping the japanese fandom rips her a new one lol

anonymous asked:

Hey, just wondering; why do you favour Gay and Trans headcanons over normal ones? Like I only see gay stuff and it's feeling a little... I don't want to say heterophobic but you know what I mean?

Buddy, I can see you’re trying to be nice so I’m gonna word this as nicely as I possibly can to hopefully teach you rather than all out call you out.

First things first; please don’t use ‘normal’ to say cis/het. That implies that the rest of us aren’t normal, when being anything other than cis/het is perfectly okay and normal.

Now to answer your question. In a world where everything is ‘straight until told otherwise’, can you blame us for wanting to imagine our favourite characters are just as gay as we are? And we like to share that with each other, because this is a safe area where we can do so. You might say ‘but it’s everywhere on tumblr! It’s not fair!’ But like….. it’s not everywhere EVERYWHERE ELSE.

Truthfully I’m not biased toward any headcanons through this blog, I try to remain neutral on every headcanon I receive (unless it’s something disgusting and horrible like Blake being a TERF or something) but if people want to celebrate Gay or Trans Blake then you’re damn right I’ll celebrate with them because it’s nice to see people are able to imagine her as they want and share those thoughts.

TL;DR I don’t favour one over the other, but when pretty much any headcanon I receive that doesn’t specify either of those things is Auto assumed straight/cis I like to share the other headcanons as much as possible.

Just a note about you saying elena alvarez is bisexual. While she does date a boy for few episodes in s1 she does so mostly to prove to herself that she isn't gay and it actually ends up proving the opposite. Elena dumps him and has several conversations in which she expresses clear indicators that she has an exclusive attraction to women. I don't remember her ever using the word lesbian(it's been a while since I watched) but it seemed pretty clear she was only attracted to women.

Oh okay! I’m only on episode 6 and on this episode she likes the boy, Josh, but still is attracted to women that’s why I was like isn’t she bi-sexual, but thank you for the clarification!

Or NO thank you for the #spoilers (lol I’m just joking about the spoilers thing)

bullhop  asked:

You'll have to specifically search "gay black couples", "gay Asian couples", and so forth because if you don't you'll get nothing but white people. The quick fix would be to plug in a search for all the races that are missing. Alternatively, you can repost photos of Instagram couples that have public profiles.

Everyone should be represented. I understand your concern, and sure I can actively look for POC couples by following the searches you stated. But, to me that seems a bit forced, almost like these pictures are simply reblogged to fill a quota, to make my blog more PC. Especially when using the words like “fix” and “missing”. I would want my followers to feel like there is no difference between a “gay couple” and a “gay black couple”, if you understand what I mean? But then again I do not speak for the POC community and should never try to. Therefore, Im asking; would you (and everyone else) prefer me to actively reblog POC couples, knowing that I do this intentionally to make my blog more diverse/ PC etc?

I ask these questions to go about this in the right way as I, myself cannot speak for anyone representing another ethnicity, skin colour or culture than my own.
