it’s funny how straight ppl romanticize “forbidden” love. they think it’s soooooo endearing and fun and exciting when in reality, their gay peers are having to literally hide their relationships bc of safety. we have to hide ourselves and our lovers bc we could get murdered. we have to hide bc we’re afraid of getting fired. we have to hide sometimes bc we have to, not bc it’s some office romance that’s hush hush.
it’s not fun, it’s not exciting, it’s fucking terrifying and it hurts bc we can’t hold our datemate’s hand in public - bc we could be killed.
