I hate how girls like to fetishize homosexuality. As a gay, It makes me happy to know you guys care but as a person it makes me uncomfortable. I want to be viewed as normal, not as some super special human being to be doted upon forever or viewed as a super-romantic breed of human. I actually dislike telling girls I’m gay because then they freak out like “OMG now I know a gay guy!!!”. I have a large group of male friends who know I’m gay, and they treat me normally. We go swimming, play games and muck around, whereas girls think I always want to go shopping or think about which celebrity has the hottest dick. I know some gays are flamboyant, but its really unhealthy how this website likes flamboyant gays. This site HATES people who are flamboyantly straight, so why is it fine to be like that when you’re gay? I am attracted to men, but I don’t like the idea of people “shipping” me with my friends or people in class (its happened to me before, and its extremely creepy). All the girls here hate guys who fetishize lesbians (I do too) but then turn around and draw canonically straight guys kissing or having sex or whatever. If anything, it makes me MORE uncomfortable, because I don’t want this happening to me (as I said earlier, its happened before).
I actually prefer straight ships to gay ones (if the gay couple is straight), because then I know the love is likely platonic. Taking two straight guys and shipping them is creepy because you’re forcing them to be something else. If it’s unacceptable to make a gay guy straight, then it should be unacceptable to make a straight guy gay.
TL;DR: Stop fetishizing gays. Its really creepy for some gay people.
