no one will find the gay now

Headcanon that Holtzmann have a lot of fun toying with dress codes to mess with snobbish people at formal events. 

Bonus:

@ the people adding fake captions on dnp's videos

fuck off.

i try not to get too real on here because serious conversation isn’t my forte, but i’m a bit pissed so bear with me.

if you don’t know, some people have been adding fake captions on phil is not on fire 8 (and possibly other videos idk), saying shit like ‘how gay are you right now’ and other phan related stuff. now, the fact that it’s phan isn’t even the problem, i’m sure dan and phil can take a joke.

however imagine being one of the people who genuinely need these captions to understand the content of the video. there are plenty of deaf and HoH people watching youtube videos - not to mention people who aren’t that fluent in english and find it easier to read than hear - and for them these captions are genuinely helpful! so when you add in stuff they haven’t actually said because it’s “funny”, all you’re achieving is keeping these people from understanding what’s going on. congrats, you’re a shitty person.

~ ok i’m done thank u for ur time ~

and if you look to your left you’ll find just one of many instances where a tingle of gay feelings tugs at keith’s heart :D

yet another part of the childhood klance au but this time a bit in the past

bc lance absolutely used to coddle keith before his Denial Phase TM and i will not be convinced otherwise :D

//and y’all, i think this sketchy art style is The One for the time being. i mean, at first it was an accident but now i’m really feeling it :)  

My experiences as a lesbian mother have been as varied as any mother’s. For me, being part of a small but closely-knit gay and lesbian community in Hawaii has given me a kind of support that few mothers find in the isolation of mainstream American society today.

[…] In late 1976, the handful of lesbians and gay men I knew decided to form a support group. Within a month of our first public announcements, up to thirty people were attending meetings. We have now grown from the original group of six to a non-profit educational organization providing support, services, and social contact to hundreds of lesbians, gay men and bisexual people in Hawaii.


As one of the few mothers active in this organization, I have sometimes found difficulty in attending events for which child care was not provided, or encountered prejudicial attitudes because I chose to bear and raise heterosexually-conceived children. Much more often, though, I have received support and affirmation as a lesbian mother from my community. Recently a lesbian couple told me that observing my parenting has given them hope that they could successfully raise a child, something both want but hadn’t thought they could do as lesbians. I am often acknowledged as a good mom — and when the going gets rough there are some gay and lesbian parents of now-grown children to whom I can turn for advice. I believe my experience and awareness as a lesbian mother enriches this community. My openness about my sexual orientation and the comfortable level of communication I’ve fostered with my children serves as a role model to other lesbian and gay parents.


When, a few months after my son’s birth, I took a part-time job, a gay male friend did child care every week — and usually cooked dinner for us too — for free. He did this not only because he enjoyed my children (they weren’t always enjoyable!) but because he feels it’s important for gentle, caring gay men to be part of children’s lives. (This same man and other gay brothers provided free child care at our annual women’s conference for several years.)


When my daughter was dying of brain tumors in 1980, it was two of my lesbian sisters who came to our home, softly singing and talking and comforting both of us through that last, long night. Later, when the shock wore off and the reality of her death hit me full force, it was lesbian sisters who took me into their homes and hearts, giving me the support and safety I needed to work through my grief, remorse, and pain.


Today, the lesbians and gay men in our community are my son’s friends as well as mine. They play with him, exchange information and ideas with him, and provide him with role models of nurturing, interesting, kind adults who enjoy a cooperative way of life. He is welcome at and enjoys many of our social events, and I see that his participation brings enjoyment and awareness to the non-parents in our community as well. One night at a party a group of gay men included my son in a dice game they were playing, apologetically telling him it would cost him fifty cents, fairly high stakes for a ten-year-old. However, they hadn’t counted on his luck with the roll; by the end of the game, they were all out fifty cents, and he left with a pocketful of change for the weekend!


[…] I do believe that having an openly lesbian mother who feels good about herself and being raised in such a community gives children such as mine a foundation of acceptance for the wide range of human differences with which we are blessed. In addition, these children will exercise an informed freedom of choice which few children raised in today’s repressively heterosexist society enjoy. It’s not all roses, both my son and I have been the subject of a few rude remarks due to my lesbianism. But as my son once said, “That’s a dumb thing to tease anyone about!”


What’s it like, being a lesbian mother? Is it difficult? Is it challenging? Is it fun? YOU BET! I wouldn’t miss any of it!

How not be a bad person

Before you post about how bad heterosexual people are and how disgusting their sex is follow these steps:
1) draft your post
2) find all references to heterosexuality and replace them with non-hetero sexualities
3) reread
4) if it now sound like something a homophobe or a bigot would say don’t post it

Bashing people because of their sexuality is bigoted - no matter the sexuality.
No one deserves to be treated with such disrespect and hatred because of their sexual orientation.

We can do better than this.

We are above this.

We are not this.

How Supergirl Season 2 Was Made

Deep within the bowels of the CW, four people in suits stand around a cauldron labeled ‘Supergirl Season 2’.

Suit #1: Alright everyone, now this was the easiest brew yet, CBS gave us most of their ingredients, we just need to wrap this up with some personal touches. We’ve already added our own experience with making superhero shows from the Arrowverse, but I was thinking we could do something extra…let’s make Alex Danvers gay. It’s not like she had a love interest for people to get mad at us about, and after her wardrobe in Taxi Brooklyn half the internet is convinced Chyler is gay anyway. Now then…anyone know where we can find some Gay?

Suits #2-4 perk up and all run in opposite directions. Eventually Suit #2 comes back carrying a five gallon bucket full or rainbow liquid.

Suit #2: Hey, a friend gave me this. It’s the left over gay from Rookie Blue. There’s not much since the finale ended with the one lesbian main character having sex with another girl and being about to adopt a child, and none of the lesbians in the show got killed or went evil, but it should work.

Pours the rainbow liquid into the red and blue liquid of the show. Suit #1 looks in at the new mixture, Alex has a light rainbow aura now, but it could be waved off by the straights if they really wanted to. Suit #1 pats Suit #2 on the shoulder.

Suit #1: That’s just the right amount of gay! Good job!

Suit #2 walks off pleased. Moments later a forklift pulls up carrying a 50 gallon drum with a nozzle at the bottom, which Suit #3 aligns with the cauldron.

Suit #1: Uh…what is that?

Suit #3: Oh, this is all the leftover gay from The 100! Given the backlash we got from killing Lexa I thought it only right to apply it to our new show as a sort of apology.

Suit #1: Well that’s a very nice thought but we already added 5 gallons of gay to the season, I think that’s enough…

Suit #3 ignores Suit #1 and opens the nozzle, pouring more rainbow colored liquid directly into the cauldron.

Suit #1: Oh…okay…well alright

Suit #1 looks into the mixture as Suit #3 drives away. Alex is unmistakably, Kristen Stewart, Tegan and Sara levels of gay now, and a new character, Maggie Sawyer, appears to have materialized. Moreover the presence of Katie McGrath is drastically multiplying it, and now there’s a light rainbow coating to Kara, Winn, and Mon-El too.

Suit #1: Oh well, I guess this will just get us a cult following now. Shipping wars are always good. Plus Kara’s got a canon relationship with a guy, and Winn was with this universe’s terrible version of Siobhan Smythe, so it should balance out. We’ll just have to add a few more James/Kara dates. Wait…what’s that sound?

The massive door used for truck deliveries opens and a cement mixer backs up towards the cauldron, it’s spout lowering onto said cauldron.

Suit #1: …What the hell?

Suit #4 hops out beaming.

Suit #4: Well after TNT ended Rizzoli & Isles…

Suit #1: Are you insane? You can’t dump all the leftover gay from Rizzoli & Isles in here! We’re trying to make a superhero show, not the L Word set in the DC universe!

Suit #4: Oh no, this isn’t all of it, this isn’t even half.  Disney bought A LOT of it to spread out among their own stuff, Star Wars, and Marvel, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network both bought a bit, NBC and CBS bought some,and most of what we got the movie people took for the Amazon Island in Wonder Woman and the standalone Harley Quinn movie they’re working on. No, this is just what was left over.

Suit #1 stares in shock as Suit #4 hits a button and a river of rainbow liquid flows out into the cauldron. When it’s all done J'onn is the only one of the main cast NOT coated in gay, the James/Kara relationship has ended by the end of the first episode, and Katie McGrath doesn’t seem to have realized that she wasn’t supposed to have brought the leftover gay from Dracula with her and directed it all solely as Kara. Even Winn and Mon-El are super gay now! And while the prevailing colors of the season are still blue and red, there’s an undeniable rainbow under coat.

Suit #1: … we’re going to get letters about this.

GOD IM SO GLAD MORE PEOPLE ARE HOPPING ON THE BAD VISION LANCE TRAIN BEVAUSE I ALWAYS HC HIM AS BLIND AS FCK BUT HE DOESNT SAY ANYTHING BC HE REFUSES YO WEAR GLASSES (which he actually keeps in his jacket pocket but he will never tell anybody that ever) just lance being such a good shot and he can't see brings me joy my son is so talented

hunk is the only one that knows

until keith finds out eventually probably by accident and gets super flustered bc!!! lance is cute!! he was cute before but oh heck!!! lance is really cute!! and he is really gay!! 

and keith kinda stumbles over his words like “so uh so you wear glasses”

lance, without hesitation: no

keith: but they’re?? on ur face right now?? ur literally wearing them??

lance, literally wearing his glasses: no im not

and then keith later after seeing lance and his sharpshooting skills he asks lance why he doesn’t just wear his glasses bc then he’d be able to see his shot better and lance is just “i didn’t miss a singe shot keith” 

and keith doesnt rly know what to say to that so he stands there in silence for a bit processing how this guy who needs glasses can still be such a good shot and eventually says “how the hell do you do it” and he’s a lil in awe tbh

lance grins “guess i’m just that awesome” 

okay wait can we talk about how kevin’s parents are “huge homophobes”

like captain holt has been discriminated against his whole life by his colleagues for his race and for his sexual orientation and, presumably, the one group of people who would never judge him is his family

and yet, his own in-laws haven’t spoken to him in 30 years because they think that he made their son gay. even if he’s made peace with it by now, at the time that must have been the worst possible thing to hear. he was put down his whole life and now that he finally finds “The One”, he, again, is not treated with respect.  

and think about how kevin must have felt, and how this perpetuated his stereotype that most people are homophobes. holt has to deal with this all day at work, and then when he comes home he is still thinking about the fact that his own parents-in-law don’t approve of their relationship? that must have been devastating for him. he just could not catch a break.

I was talking to my mum once about why she thought homosexuality was wrong/a choice and she told me that it was partially because the bible says that “confusion comes from the devil” and that whenever she heard LGBTQ people talk about their experiences with figuring their sexuality out, they said they were confused at some point. 

At the time, I didn’t know what to say to that. I had only recently come out to her, and I was still trying to find the best way to explain everything. But now I realize just how fucked up that statement is, because the confusion doesn’t come from liking someone of the same gender, it comes from adults demonizing that attraction. 

If a kid grows up in a household where being gay/bi/pan/etc. is normalized, then if they ever feel attracted to the same gender, or more than one gender, there isn’t any reason to be confused, because they haven’t been told that it is wrong. When I figured out that I liked both boys and girls, I was confused because I had been lead to believe that only one of those attractions was valid and that I wasn’t supposed to feel the other one. And when the feelings wouldn’t go away, I felt lost because it was supposed to be a choice. 

LGBTQ kids feeling confused has nothing to do with the devil, it has to do with society telling us that who we are is a mistake and that our feelings are possible to ignore/avoid.

SuperCorp Headcanon

I have too many other fics Im working on right now to really write this but:
. Real talk, Kara must feel so alone and isolated right now.
. With all this shit between finding out James is Gaurdian, Winn keeping secrets, and Mon-El’s manipulative behavior she must feel kind of betrayed
. Shes THRILLED for Alex but also really missing the more frequent one on one sister nights
. And theres only so much ice cream you can eat by yourself
. So she reaches out to Lena
. Lena’s basically felt this way her ENTIRE life so shes really good at making Kara feel better
. Then they get “closer”
. Suddenly its Valentines day and Lena does this huge gesture to show Kara how much she cares about her
. But only “in a friend way” because she will actually die if Kara rejects her
. Kara sees right through her
. Shes scared at first, but without realizing it, she fell in love with Lena Luthor, her beautiful best friend
. After a ridiculous amount of potstickers and contemplation Kara decides she just has to lay it all on the line
. So she shows up on Lena’s balcony (in the rain for effect)
. Rambling on about how she feels terrible she didnt get Lena anything for Valentines day until Lena interrupts “so whats my present?!”
. And Kara just sticks a big ass bow on her head with this stupid goofy grin on her face
. “Me, silly”
. Then they kiss on the balcony in the pouring rain and fly off into the sunset to live happily ever after.

Fetishization of Same-sex relationships

Oh my god.

I literally was on The Spoiling Dead fan page (the comments have been deleted now) and I saw this girl say that “Aaron’s boyfriend is a ginger, anorexic creep” and that “Aaron and Jesus would be better together”. Literally an example of fetishization of gay men and same-sex relationships. It angers me so much that 1. Some people can be so shallow and rude 2. They want two men to break up or the one they don’t find hot to be killed, simply for two other gay men to get together to satisfy and for their own sexual gratification; ignoring the fact that Aaron and Eric have been together since before the apocalypse and that they are in love. If you are one of those people that only like same-sex relationship representation because they sexual gratify you and you find it hot and you want to break one up because you don’t find it “hot” - then fuck you. You are homophobic and are reducing gay/bi men to sex objects and that you only care about representation if it get’s you off. This happens all the time with straight men fetishizating lesbian/bi women too.

Wanting a same-sex couple to become canon because you think they would be a cute, interesting couple is not fetishization. In fact, finding same-sex intimacy/kissing/sex arousing is not fetishization either. Studies have been shown that (more so in women) many people, regardless of the sexuality or whether it is a same-sex or opposite sex couple, will get aroused by many different types of porn regardless of the person’s own sexuality and the nature of the porn. Watching gay porn when you are a woman is also not fetishization either. Just like a man being aroused by seeing the naked female body doesn’t mean that he is fetishizing/objectifing the female naked body - it’s just something he finds arousing and is attracted to. You can not help what you get’s you aroused (it is something that is biological and psychological, something that is in your nature) and as long as it is not non-consentual, paedophilia, bestiality situation or porn that arouses you then there should be no problem with what arouses you.

What is fetishization is when you want a same-sex couple to become canon simply on the grounds of you wanting to watch them kiss/have sex. Fetishization is dating a bisexual person for the expectation of having a threesome with them. Fetishization is the asking intrusive questions about an lgbt person’s sex life for your own little fantasy and gratification. Fetishization is seeing a lgbt person as a sexual object or objectifying same-sex relationships as to something that simply gets you off. For example, Youtuber Onision constantly fetishizes lesbian/bi women and talks about their sex life explicitly and how he finds it really hot to watch lesbian/bi women have sex, in literally every video he makes. That is fetishization.

Regardless, back to what I was ranting about. It got me really annoyed because I have been someone out of the few people alongside others like @thegaymerist @thereadersmuse @askdarus and @paullrovia that have been angered by the lack of interaction between Aaron and Eric and how AMC have completely ignored their relationship and the bad treatment of same-sex relationships in TWD in general. The fact that there are some people that want Eric to die or break up with Aaron because they don’t find them a “hot couple”, they don’t find him attractive and want Aaron to be with Jesus because it would be “hot” is down right shallow, rude, disgusting and objectifying of same-sex relationships. Literally I am annoyed as hell because I once got accused of fetishising gay people simply because I said is that Daryl might not actually be straight and that him and Jesus would make a groundbreaking, cute and interesting couple (they were a stranger in the youtube comments so they don’t know me). It’s people like that one person that makes people like myself, who has been angered by AMC’s treatment of ALL their LGBT characters (killing off both of Tara’s gfs, Aaron and Eric little to none screen time), be lumped together with people who actually fetishises/objectify same-sex relationships. Finding same-sex relationships cute or interesting is not fetishization; objectifying them as to something that gets you aroused and that you only care about lgbt representation if you find the couple hot/want to watch them have sex is.

All our LGBT characters in The Walking Dead (and all others shows tbh) deserve that respect of treating them as people, not objects like some people do. We are allowed to get angry when they and their relationships are ignored or when one of them dies unnecessarily before we can see more of their relationship grow. We should also call out, calmly and non-aggressively, when people objectify them.

that episode of one day at a time when its the day after elena comes out to her mum is so important

because thats the thing i don’t see tv shows or even ppl talk about an awful lot

me and my girlfriend just had an hour long discussion about how even after two years two whole years!!!! of us being an a committed relationship together (and my mum knowing about me liking girls for about three years now) we still find it difficult to talk to our mums about our relationship or even just gay stuff in general

how we know they love and support us but they still aren’t entirely comfortable about us liking girls

because thats the reality! when u see or hear a story of a parent being accepting of their kid coming out it doesn’t always end there, sometimes they find it hard to process and sometimes they just don’t get it and it’s still a lonely experience even if u know at the core of it they do love u

i’m glad that there is a show where kids can see that coming out isn’t just in the moment, it’s in everything else after the moment

reasons why night in the woods is the best game ever & u shld play it

  • like half the game is just having fun crime adventures with all your gay friends
  • at one point you can hijack a mall intercom to scream “I AM GOD, FUCK COPS” over the announcement system just to make your friend laugh
  • long, protracted, half-serious arguments between your depressed gay friends about god and fascism that i swear to god were ripped word-for-word from my own life
  • there’s an optional sideplot where you find a nest of rats, decide that you are their mother now, and start stealing pretzels to feed your babies
  • there’s an entire scene where you and your friend shoplift some junk from hot topic for kicks, then return it later & give an incoherent speech about capitalism to the lady at the desk
  • your character keeps a journal that’s updated periodically with scribbly doodles and notes like “thoughts: become a FIRE GHOST and YELL AT PEOPLE”
  • you get to help your best friend build a giant frog robot for his boyfriend and it fuckin rules
  • why is everyone animals? who tf knows

One of the more recent joint expeditions (to I think the ISS) between Russian, American, and Canadian astronauts used a space suit developed and designed in Russia. (It looked a lot like one of the older Soviet models that I think was a rescue suit)
I just thought it was funny lmao

Now for anyone who doesn’t think that they’re not gay please where do you not see the gay dramatic effect?

This is a man that no longer has the will to try and survive. This is days after watching his city and everything around it be annihilated. This is a man that was able to find the will to continue only because he had the one most precious thing beside him the whole way. And when suddenly he had to face the realization of a world without Chirrut, he choose to instead follow him into the force.

imagine, after much pleading, Keith finally lets Lance do his nails.  Lance paint them black and when he finishes he says “there, now they match your soul.”

And Keith, in the most monotone voice, replies “i guess your soul is gay” because Lance clearly had to compare all the nailpolishes with his skintone to find the perfect one so currently they’re rainbow af

Recently, I can’t stop watching this video (which I already loved) and picturing it as Eggsy dancing. 

He was forced to drop gymnastics, and so he started dancing instead. He had to keep it from his mom, and from Dean, so everything he does is self taught. He practices in abandoned buildings, dancing to songs that speak to his situation - a closeted gay boy, growing up in the estates, avoiding the abuse of his stepfather and trying to do right by his mother.

So, now at 24, Eggsy’s this amazing dancer, and no one has any idea. Until one day Harry, staking out a potential safe house for an upcoming mission, stumbles across Eggsy dancing to this song. And he is profoundly moved by what he sees, at the talent this young man has.

He shouldn’t do it, he knows, but he follows the boy, wanting to find out more about him. And that’s when he sees him return to the Unwin flat and he realizes who this boy must be. Eggsy Unwin, who he had to tell his father was dead because of his mistake. And he becomes determined to make things right by this boy.

Cue a secret benefactor that gets Eggsy an audition for a major dance company, and Harry inevitably falling head over heels for Eggsy.
