Yes no maybe
no i don’t want to go outside or do anything can you please stop shaming me for it mom
Okay I’m taking a brief pause from my regular simping over Minecraft youtubers to write a hot take that’s actually serious.
Straight people complaining that certain songs or artists are associated with LGBTQ+ identities is kind of homophobic. I’ve seen so many people I know and people on the Internet act like they have been personally victimised by someone asking if they were bisexual in a tiktok comment section after they used sweater weather, or complaining about how ‘am I not allowed to listen to *insrt artist* because I’m straight’. This is utter bullshit. Someone inquiring politely about your sexuality is not oppressive or rude.
Moreover, the reasons these songs and artists are associated with LGBTQ identities is often for a reason. Sweater Weather is mostly gender ambiguous, and gained popularity during the queer pop wave of people like troye sivan that was popular with bisexual people on sites like tumblr. Hence it became a 'bi anthem’. That doesn’t mean if you like it or use it you’re bisexual, but it means the song is part of bisexual culture.
The same thing goes for girl in red. She is popular and gained traction largely due to lesbian and wlw communities, so obviously she’s going to be associated with lesbians. Does this mean you can’t use her songs or like her if you’re straight? No. But it means that girl in red is an artist that is part of lesbian culture, and to get offended when people link the two is… Kind of homophobic.
Straight people can listen to this music (or indeed do other things that are associated with LGBTQ+ culture) and get defensive because 'oh you’re assuming my sexuality’ and 'I got a comment asking if I was gay 😩😤’. But they are still allowed to get married everywhere, they are still allowed to walk down the street and hold hands with the one they love and not feel in danger of being beaten up. LGBTQ+ can listen to these songs or not listen to these songs, and then be systematically oppressed.
In conclusion: be quiet you aren’t a victim because people think sweater weather is a bisexual anthem. Also, why shouldn’t it be? LGBTQ+ people have so little media associated with them. It’s a fucking song.
no I don’t think you understand… I’m weirdly OBSESSED with her hands.
Absolute bullshit that it’s sweater weather and I still don’t have a girlfriend 😡
Hello LGBTQ community
I finally told my best friend about my crush and everything that happened so far and our interactions and stuff and especially the stuff after work yesterday and she said she was definitely flirting with me I’m,,, 🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺
Like now that I think about it??? It would kinda make sense tbh
Also our eye contact is intense sometimes lmao
I’m getting my hopes up someone help me
Yesterday was too much for my heart I’m crushing hardddd
I just want to take a moment
I’ve been having a really hard time lately. My depression has been awful, my job search is terrible, and my registering for classes has been way more difficult than it should be. I’m exhausted all the time and I feel overwhelmed a lot. But that’s not what this is about
This is about my beautiful, wonderful girlfriend who just takes everything in stride. She sits and listens to me ranting about how my brother in law eats all my snacks; to which I learned she purposefully puts almond flour in everything she bakes with/for me so he can’t eat it due to an allergy. She talks through my breakdowns with me, sharing her insights and support with me. She sends me encouraging texts throughout the day, especially when she learns I am up and out of bed (finally). She never fails to tell me she is proud of me, (for what I’m not sure) and that she loves me.
She always offers me a safe haven and escape when things get rough with my family. She never judges or turns away from me. Even when I feel alone I know she’s sitting quietly on the other side waiting for me to let her in. I know she can’t fix my problems, but she is the first person I want to run to when I have them. Im always worried it’s too much or I’m an issue for her. But she just shakes her head and smiles softly before telling me im “more than enough” as she kisses me forehead.
When I have bad days, she tells me she’s just finishing something up before she’s going to head over and do her work here so I’m not alone. She calls me when I’m practically losing my mind at a stoplight because everything is just closing in on me. She texts me when I’m too tired to deal with anything.
And she does it all while looking at me like I’m not broken. Like she loves me regardless. And I know she does. She is so amazing and continues to blow me away on the daily. She takes care of me.
She sounds so wonderful and perfect I know. But get this. She does all of this, for me, when she is sick. She has some health issues but she stays so strong and selfless and gentle through it all. She honestly is such an inspiration to me. I know things are not easy for her. And yet, she still is more concerned about me than she is about herself. It’s a funny cycle her and I have. I worry about her illness and she worries about mine.
She’s scared she is “too much” or I “can’t handle it,” because it’s easier if I were to leave. Which you would think is the case, but to me it seems like the opposite. I don’t know what I would do if she left. I would spend
weeks months wondering what went wrong. I would be destroyed. It hasn’t been very long but I do not want to imagine life without her. How in the world could I leave the person I love most? It just seems stupid of me to do that. And I get she’s scared, she’s had some bad luck. And that’s totally fine. But it doesn’t scare me. I mean, sometimes her sickness scares me but it’s only because I’m so new, but I’m learning. I want to learn everything and be the best partner for her, because she deserves it. She deserves to get the same love that she gives me.
So Alyssa, if you’re reading this:
I love you. You mean the absolute world to me. You always tell me you wish you could give me the world, but you already have. You’re my whole world, sweet girl. I don’t want anyone else. I wouldn’t change anything for the world. I knew the day I met you that I was going to fall for you, I just didn’t know how or when. You’re so easy to love. I can never get enough of you. I love you when you’re happy. I love you when you’re sad. I love you when you’re mad at me. I love you when you’re healthy. I love you when you’re sick. I love you when you’re with me, I love you when you’re away from me.
I can never thank you enough for what you do for me.
I adore you.
