How to come out to your parents:
Say: “I’m pregnant.”
When they gasp and look shocked, say: “April Fools, I’m gay.” Throw some glitter on them and walk away. Done.
when i told my dad ‘dad i have something to tell you’ he screamed ‘ARE YOU PREGNANT’ and i said ‘HA nope, i like girls’ and he was like ‘oh thank god’ so yeah it works and he did it all by himself

How I deal with ignorance.
It’s right at the end of Chapter 2. Nick goes to that terrible party where Tom hits Myrtle and breaks her nose. He leaves with one of the guys (Mr. McKee) there and they go back to his place, both super drunk…then it kinda jumps to Nick, in his underwear on the bed….then it jumps to Nick going home on the 4 am train.
And it never mentioned again in the book. It’s…rather odd really.
Then Mr. McKee turned and continued on out the door. Taking my hat from the chandelier, I followed.
“Come to lunch some day,” he suggested, as we groaned down in the elevator.
“Keep your hands off the lever,” snapped the elevator boy.
“I beg your pardon,” said Mr. McKee with dignity, “I didn’t know I was touching it.”
“All right,” I agreed, “I’ll be glad to.”
. . . I was standing beside his bed and he was sitting up between the sheets, clad in his underwear, with a great portfolio in his hands.
“Beauty and the Beast . . . Loneliness . . . Old Grocery Horse . . . Brook’n Bridge. . . . ”
Then I was lying half asleep in the cold lower level of the Pennsylvania Station, staring at the morning Tribune, and waiting for the four o’clock train.’
Thank you for the actual quote. :)
I’m just saying, those ellipses are pretty damn suggestive.
There is literally no other way of explaining this scene in anyway that makes sense. If anyone can begin to explain this scene in a way that doesn’t involve Nick fucking this dude, I’d love to hear you try.

This movie was really fun. (It’s called Cloudburst, by the way. and it’s on Netflix)
Watch the actual video.
Holy shit, I have never seen so much backpedaling in my life.
I would just like to point out the fact that she is saying these words to a man who is gay and you can see the pain and disgust on his face
The year is 2345.
Saint Anderson is remembered for being awesome.
“I know it’s a difficult topic” ….. because you’re a fucking idiot.
Anderson fucking Cooper everyone
Anderson Cooper is a fucking bamf
That video was literally the best 4 and a half minutes of my life.
Anderson Cooper is my spirit animal
Please also remember that not only were homosexuals killed in the Holocaust, but when concentration camps were liberated, they put homosexuals BACK IN THE CAMPS to serve the rest of their sentences.
Men in Hollywood aren’t the only ones in luck to date “The Fault in Our Stars’” Shailene Woodley. In a recent interview, the “Divergent” actress admits to being bisexual. Like famous British model Cara Delevingne and “Fast & The Furious” actress Michele Rodriguez, Shailene Woodley joins the list of hot bisexual women.
Thanks to firenzelovegoodthewolf for bringing this to our attention! Awesome to see another bi celeb out and proud, but can we not with the awful wording of the article title? I really hate it when media says “so and so admits to being bi”as if it’s some sort of crime, or something to be ashamed of. That’s definitely something I see as far as the media being FAR more pro-gay than pro-bi. Not only are a lot of bi celebrities erased and labeled as gay, but when someone comes out as gay, they label it as just that: “So and So Comes Out As Gay.” But when it’s bisexuality, it’s “So and So Admits to Being Bisexual.”
EDIT: I also forgot to mention that I really don’t like the whole “joins the list of hot bisexual women” thing. Cuz that’s all we’re good for, right? Gross.
….Yay more visibility.
Boo horrible article writing. (“admits to being bisexual”, “hot bisexual women.” Micro-aggressions all up in here.)
I made these to put up around my school for my school’s GSA. They are quotes from some little known bisexuals about their bisexuality.
Lets stop bisexual erasure and remember, bisexuality is real!
Bisexual erasure is a huge thing, even in the LG community. Let’s raise the awareness!
