being a girl who likes girls is confusing bc sometimes you’re not sure what kind of reaction you’re having. that girl is hot. do you wanna look like her? do you wanna sleep with her? do you want both? but not at the same time that would be weird. so confusing.

STORY TIME KIDS. Lucas Grabeel who played Ryan Evans was 100% for making Ryan canonically gay, and spoke to Kenny Ortega at length to get Ryan to at least hold hands with a male student in the final scene. Grabeel is straight but thought it was so important for Disney viewers to see gay characters on TV, knowing that the HSM3 viewership was age 11+, when kids may start thinking about who they’re attracted to a bit more. basically Disney gave Lucas a flat out no and as a response wrote in Ryan’s relationship with Kelsi last minute (as speculation was already flying around about Kelsi being a lesbian). so even though disney screwed them over ortega told grabeel that he could do whatever he liked in the blooper reel and they’d include it in the DVD. hence above.
Texas Sportscaster Gives Best Response to Michael Sam’s Coming Out Ever
I am honored to have grown up watching this man on my news every night. At my senior honors banquet Dale Hansen came to speak to our class about our futures. He spoke of the loss of his best friend during the war, and left not a dry eye in the entire ballroom. When I got to quickly shake hands with him, I told him that even though he mostly spoke of sports, I mostly loved his anecdotes towards deeper subjects. He replied by saying that even though hes a sportscaster, he’s still a role model to his viewers. Why not give the viewers what they need to hear every once in awhile instead of what they want to hear.
I’ve now moved off to school and can no longer watch his live segments, but to know that this man is still an inspiration to many has solidified my adoration for this man.
So proud of Mr. Sam and his Missouri team.
these olympics are going to be a huge milestone for the gay rights movement.
as people are giving less and less shits (along with our wonderful governments), i feel those places that dont already accept the oh-my-god-gay-people-actually-exist agenda will soon be following suit with the rest of the world.
i’ve never seen so much gay in the world all at once
this canadian commercial
and this british commercial
you go world
that hot popular guy in 8th grade is the reason why I figured out I was gay like he did a cartwheel and his shirt went up and you could see his abs and I thought “that’s the shit I like” which was immediately followed by “oh my god I’m gay”
Four same-sex couples represented by the American Civil Liberties Union sued Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) and other state top administration officials on Monday, challenging Wisconsins seven-year-old ban on gay marriage. In addition to attempting to overturn the states constitutional amendment barring marriage equality, the lawsuit also seeks to repeal Wisconsins “marriage evasion” law, which criminalizes leaving the state to contract a marriage that is prohibited or void in Wisconsin.In addition to attempting to overturn the state’s constitutional amendment barring marriage equality, the lawsuit also seeks to repeal Wisconsin’s “marriage evasion” law, which criminalizes leaving the state to “contract a marriage that is prohibited or void” in Wisconsin. Couples violating the marriage evasion statute can be fined up to “$10,000 or imprisoned for not more than 9 months or both.”
I’VE BEEN WAITING YEARS FOR SOMEONE TO TAKE ON THIS RIDICULOUS, UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAW
It simply can’t be a crime to get married in a state where it’s legal. I’m positive it’ll get shot down in court. Hopefully the ban goes with it.
