The shittiest thing you could ever do to someone is

out them as gay before they are ready. they may still be trying things out or finding the appropriate label for themselves - regardless, it’s not your place to tell others and rob them of coming out for themselves.

Your sexuality isn’t a fucking threat to minors, okay? Since staff is deciding to be a total asshole to the LGBTQIA+ community during pride month I’m gonna spit some facts to set things straight

- “gay” and “lesbian” are sexual identities, do not reduce their meaning to a fucking porn tag. It’s dehumanizing and fetishizing

- being anything other than straight does not automatically make things nsfw

- your existence is not “sensitive content” and is not inherently dangerous

- there is absolutely no reason Tumblr needs to worry about “protecting” minors from gays especially when a lot of the content they are censoring are helpful, supportive posts for LBGTQIA+ youth

I’m so sorry that staff is literally censoring our entire community out of existence. Your sexuality is real and valid and you deserve better than to be treated like this
Gay Icon

I remember the first time I came out as gay to someone in my school.

I yelled it at the top of my lungs in a hallway.

I thought people would think I was joking or something but nO, people for months were coming up to me asking if I were gay, which, of course I am you walnut. Have you seen how I look at girls? Yeah.

So one day some dude pulled me aside and I was just ready to be asked if I was gay again. I mean I’ve screamed it randomly in school about a hundred times now. Anyway, the dude asks me how I became “The gay icon of school”

I just stared blankly at him because me??? A gay icon???? You’re mistaken. Eventually after a few seconds I say the most confused “what” I’ve ever heard.

Okay so the dude tells me that, apparently, when asking if people are gay, they just ask if “Are you,,, a friend of K,,,itty???” And everyone just uses me as the embodiment of being gay.


Okay, so there’s a subplot during the recent episode of Milo Murphy’s Law where he says that his doctor is golfing and he doesn’t know where his doctor is. And we cut to his Doctor golfing and getting asked if he’s a doctor and him saying no.

But at the end it just becomes amazingly sweet.

Milo’s doctor was on a date.

This is how to do it right. They don’t spell it out for you but it’s there and it’s natural. It’s two men on a date. Two men in an interracial relationship. Enjoying their day. There’s no confession of I’m gay. He just wants to say he’s a doctor. He wanted to be loved for who he is. And his boyfriend said it worked.

How sweet is that?


I hate when adults say that how we feel is “a phase” and we will grow up a be straight and have kids just like them.
I’m 13 so kids my age get this a lot from teachers/parents etc.
I go to a catholic school and we have a program called theology of the body. In this we discuss sex and the churches thoughts on it. So I was ready for this to be completely sexist (it was). We also talked about marriage. I have a bi friend and a pan friend so we were ready for her to say what we feel isn’t valid. She explained to us that the only reason “traditional marriage is straight and is for the procreation of children” This pissed me off. Marriage is when people love each other and decide to give themselves fully and love only them. Women are not only here to have kids. I know I’m asexual, don’t want biological kids. I want to adopt. I asked the teacher if this is ok. She said “I don’t think so. Procreating and having children is the only way to complete marriage it’s just a phase honey you’ll want kids”. I was like???!!!!

So, I thought Bob was totally right about this at first. I was curious, so I did a little researching and found that we were both wrong.
Situational homosexuality was something that happened on pirate ships, men being surrounded by men and not being able to satisfy sexual needs as often as they would like. Homosexuality wasn’t accepted in many pirate communities, but there was a common practice among some pirates, especially in the Caribbean.
Matelotage was the term given to a civil union between two men on pirate ships. The men often married for financial purposes as people in a matelotage shared personal items, loot, and were entitled to each other’s inheritance. But many of these relationships were also romantic as the matelots often had sex.
This happened all the way back in the 1600’s and the union ceremonies were identical to modern marriages. The two men would exchange gold rings and pledge their eternal commitment to each other. Many historians believe that there may have been entire towns where homosexual relationships and marriages between men were completely accepted.
In 1645, the French governer of Tortuga was so concerned about the homosexual relationships among the pirates that he had thousands of prostitutes shipped to the islands. The best thing about this is that the gay couples actually just ended up having threesomes and orgies with the women.
I felt like Tumblr needed to know this.
