i totally understand ace people needing to have their own memes and whatnot and i am 1000% up with that.
but any person making posts about “oh an STD that kills off all the sexual people” needs to please not follow me because i don’t care how much you’re joking or w/e, THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED TO THE QUEER COMMUNITY.
IT WAS CALLED THE GODDAMNED US AIDS CRISIS.
I understand you’re trying to relieve stress, but please please please don’t make posts like this. I understand that, as a 30 year old, I’m at the tail end of the generation who was directly impacted by the AIDS crisis, but like. This happened. More than half of our community DIED, from a disease that was passed through sex.
Please don’t make light of this. This actually happened. This actually affected and traumatized actual people who are alive and IN FANDOM AND QUEER COMMUNITIES right now.
Please don’t make me cry, because honestly just thinking about this sort of post (which I know exists) makes me cry. We lost so many people. We lost so much art and history and beauty. Do not make light of shit like this, please. Please.
I’m begging you.
Don’t turn our losses into a meme.
