q feel

How to get a girlfriend, according to musicals:

• Dear Evan Hansen: lie about being friends with her dead brother

• Be More Chill: swallow a supercomputer that controls your thoughts and behaviour

• Phantom of the Opera: teach her to sing and stalk her incessantly

• Avenue Q: accuse her of being racist, make her a mixtape and get her drunk on Long Island Iced Tea

• Heathers: criticise her for choosing popularity over friendship and beat the shit out of some random jocks

• Book of Mormon: baptise her

i want to like. make a list of not-str8 historical figures bc ppl are tagging that walt whitman post like “omg wait really” & honestly yall deserve better.

Like, you know who wasn’t straight? Charlotte Bronte, who wrote Jane Eyre. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, who wrote Swan Lake. E.M. Forster, who wrote A Passage to India. Marcel Proust. Henry James. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Virginia Woolf. Herman Melville. Michelangelo. Leonardo Da Vinci. Socrates. William fucking Shakespeare.

And these are just (a few of) the ones we known about, because there’s a storied history of coded messages in literature that mean we are often looking gay metaphors in the face and not understanding them. We’re there, we’re out there, and I’m so mad that I didn’t know.

We have a history. We have a legacy. WE’VE ALWAYS BEEN HERE.
