"bisexuals are just being greedy"

This statement is correct.  I want all the donuts to myself.  No sharon you can’t have a donut.  Yes, I know there are 24 donuts.  Yes, I want them all for myself.  Fuck off sharon.

of course you are

I get that this post is supposed to be funny, but it’s not. In fact, it’s more insensitive than anything and the circumstances it’s mocking are tragic. The fear of being caught and outed by friends is positively crippling for young closeted queer people. It suffocates them, poisons their thoughts, and infects their everyday lives. Many queer people are forced by circumstance to pretend to be straight and to constantly monitor their behaviour so as not to act in any way which might be construed as anything other than heterosexual. They live in a constant state of fear, terrified that the carefully constructed personas they’ve crafted to protect them will come crashing down in an instant if they make even the slightest mistake. And they worst part is that they blame themselves- ‘Maybe if I just lower my voice a little more, if I just adjust my posture, if I work out a little more, they won’t notice. No one will ever know. I’ll be okay.’

It doesn’t matter whether they’re worrying over circumstances which would not obtain were their queerness to be revealed. That fear is real, and completely rational considering the widely homophobic society we are forced to navigate. Queer kids are at the mercy of their parents and often feel that they have to sacrifice their mental well-being and the joys of exploring their sexuality while they mature in exchange for continued access to the necessities of life.

Not all queer people can just live their lives footloose and fancy free with rainbows and unicorns and great hair. It might seem like a joke to an outsider, but the continued mental and physical safety of these boys might very well depend on their relationship (no matter what its nature: purely physical, romantic, or anything else) and their sexuality remaining hidden. How do they know who they can trust? It’s not easy, and even when they do know, working up the courage to tell those people is one of the most difficult things those boys will ever do.

This (and much more) is the shit queer people, especially those still living at home with old school intolerant parents, have to deal with on a daily basis. Here are two guys who finally have an opportunity to be intimate with one another and for one moment drop all pretense of heterosexuality, only for someone to stumble upon them. Think for a second of how traumatizing that would be. The thought of, ‘Oh God, soon they’ll all know. I’m dead. I’m about to lose everything’ and the sheer panic they likely experienced; the thought that some time in the very near future, they might be homeless and without any support.

Assuming this story is true, here are two guys who are so terrified of being outed that they are desperately trying to keep up a front in order appear to straight even after being ‘caught’ (as if they were doing anything wrong). The fact that these two guys feel compelled to act straight because they are trapped by heteronormative power structures that oppress queer people, coerce them into fitting the heterosexual mold in order to survive, and force them to conceal their romances out of the public eye is tragic, not funny.

Legitimate fears of potential victimization and deprivation are not funny. All this post is doing is feeding into the expectation of shame and embarrassment queer kids are sure they’ll feel if they’re found out.



Here are some important thoughts from a good friend of mine. I’m really lucky to have him around to point out the things I don’t think of; I remember laughing at this post the first time I saw it. Just something to think about!
