To black, brown, Latino, and Asian gay men who are constantly assumed to be straight just because of your ethnicity. To gay Sikh and Muslim men who receive far to little recognition. To fat gay men who have to deal with fatphobia and body shaming in a community that is supposed to be safe and welcoming. I wondered why my skin was so much darker than the pale characters in most of the TV shows that I watched. I would live for the few minutes of screen time that Kelly Kapoor would get in every other episode. Seeing an Indian on TV made me so happy.

Jul 8. Posted by VersusTheFans. So I found this little musing on Tumblr , land of opinions, about the shipping of the non-canon, non-gay men characters on Sherlock. Disclaimer, I know nothing about Johnlock, but this entitlement some straight people feel about LGBT characters is hardly unique to Sherlock. What I do understand; however, is why some LGBT people and those allies who get it have a hard time with straight people appropriating queer characters as their talisman for being mistreated by showrunners, writers or whoever, for shipping same gender couples. Female sexuality is complex, and women look for all kinds of pairing and couplings, which is completely valid.

The best couple ever! This ship is so amazing and unique! I hate all you fucking nasty fangirls. The boys can see these comments you freaks. They know English, they can read.
About a year ago, I went with friends to see a live reading of Welcome to Night Vale and was shocked by the amount of screaming coming from women in the audience. The Night Vale episode focused heavily on the romantic relationship between two male characters, Cecil and Carlos, and half the audience would absolutely shriek every time anything remotely romantic happened between them. Once the shock wore off and I found my earplugs , I was exhilarated.
