Let’s make the Yuletide gay again

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. It’s also the gayest time of year. Yep, you read that right. It’s the gayest time of year. Christmas is literally the gayest holiday of them all. Easter probably is a close second, but that’s a story for another day.

Now, I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing that Christmas is the gayest holiday of them all. In fact, it’s what makes Christmas so jolly and a spectacle. This is good fun. Being gay, more specifically LGBTQ+ isn’t a bad thing and shouldn’t be treated as such. I’m just saying what most LGBTQ+ are thinking. This is meant to be in good fun.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Yas king.

The ironic thing about Christmas being gay af is a simple fact that it’s a Christian holiday. I wouldn’t say most, but Christians aren’t too big on LGBTQ+. Top it all off, Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ in Christianity. Now I’m not saying that Jesus was a homosexual, but I’ve never seen a straight man want his birth celebrated with a dead tree covered in decorations, lights, and a star on the top of it.

You can not tell me that a Gay didn’t decorate this

Then we decorate our homes in lights and other decorations. These lights are typically rainbow lights. What does a rainbow represent? Peace and serenity. Oh, it’s also the colors of the gay flag. Yeah, you are decorating your home in virtually the gay flag to celebrate the birth of the most fabulous human of all time.

Then we also turn Christmas into a musical theatre production with the songs we listen to during this time of year. I’m talking about Christmas songs. They pretty much show tunes. So when you are singing about mommy kissing Santa Claus, it’s a show tune. I’m not talking about the new versions of the song, but rather the original ones that we were listening to from the 1950s. They are show tunes, and we celebrate them like they are a classic broadway number. That’s gay. That’s very gay. 

Santa Claus is a gay bear daddy.

Then we have the gayest thing about Christmas: Santa Claus. I’m sorry, but the only guy that slides down tight holes in satin polyester matching jumpsuit and hat with a huge stack of toys is gay. He had me sold at the outfit alone. Yep, you read that right. I’m calling Santa a homosexual. He was only trying to get your daddy when he was kissing your mommy. Make you wonder what kind of “toys” in his bag. This makes more sense of why moms love to take their children to trust him. Moms love good and nice gays.

My goal is not to ruin Christmas for the masses. But instead, let all the gay-hating and judgemental people of the world that even their sacred holiday is gay. In fact, it’s probably the gayest holiday of them all. And y’all accept Christmas for the homosexual that it is, and yet you don’t accept your fellow man. It’s what gay Jesus would want you to do. This holiday season, I hope everyone finds love, acceptance, and better taste in clothing.

Let’s talk about Pride

Every year during Pride Month, some people think it’s a good idea to have “straight pride” parade It’s pretty much like clockwork. So I thought it would be a perfect time to talk about everything that is wrong with the idea of a “straight pride” parade and why we have Pride. It’s sad that we still have to deal with stuff like this in 2019.

What’s wrong with Straight Pride?

First thing is that I’m not saying you shouldn’t be proud and show pride in who you are and your sexuality. No one is saying that. In fact, if you are straight, you should be celebrating the fact that you don’t have to worry about whether or not you will get beat up or killed for showing public displays of affection with the person you love. You don’t have to worry about getting called slurs or disowned because you love who you love.

Sure, it can happen if you are straight, but it’s more than less just based on the character of the person you are dating. It could also be based on whether or not your love is forbidden based on family blood feud if you are in a CW drama or soap opera. But it’s not usually based on the gender of the person you love. If what I have listed still doesn’t make you under what Pride month is really all about, then I feel sorry for you.

Why we have Pride?

Pride month is the month that the LGBTQ celebrates each other and themselves. Between people tell you that you are going to hell for loving who you love, fear of not being accepted by those close to you, or constantly being judged, Pride is a celebration of being proud of who you are. It’s a celebration of being and loving who you are. It’s a celebration of being different and just being you.

When all Americans are treated as equal, no matter who they are or whom they love, we are all more free.”–Barack Obama.

The reason that there is a Pride Month is because of the Stonewall Riots in 1969. Stonewall Riots were against police raids on a local LGBTQ bar just because they were LGBTQ. They were having a good time and enjoying life, but that was against the law. At this time, it was illegal to LGBTQ. The US Government kept lists on people that were/suspected of being LGBTQ, LGBTQ friendly establishments, and anyone friends with LGBTQ. You could legally fire someone for being LGBTQ. They would track your mail if you got LGBTQ material sent to you. Cities even did sweeps to get rid of LGBTQ. THAT IS WAY THERE IS PRIDE.

What is Pride?

Pride is a place where everyone is accepted for just being them. It’s just full of love and acceptance. No one is there to judge you, make you feel bad about yourself. That’s what Pride is all about. It’s not about trying to cause a scene or show this group of being that you are better than them.

Before you sit there and think to yourself, “It’s not fair, why isn’t there a Pride for straight people?” I recommend you research why there is a need for pride for LGBTQ. That’s the problem with 95% of society today. No one looks up anything and just believe the first thing they hear. The fact that you don’t have a Pride/Heritage/History month doesn’t mean you don’t exist. It just means you didn’t have to fight for your right to exist.

To straight people, be grateful that you can bang in the streets without worrying about getting killed, beat up, or stoned. You can hold hands down the road or kiss under the stars in public. You can also get married without people telling you that your bond isn’t legal or real. Feel free to come to pride as long as you aren’t a bigoted asshole. All are welcome. You don’t have to be LGBTQ to go to Pride. It may be shocking, but even straight people go to pride. You don’t have to be LGBTQ to support the message that Pride gives.

‘Love,Simon’ hits your heart in all the right places and it’s everything

It’s time for straight not to be the default

This movie review is going to be a bit different from the past ones. I’m going to try my best to be balanced but honestly, It’s rather hard. Everyone deserves a great love story, and here it is. Especially if you don’t see yourself in the ones that are usually presented by television or movies.

Love, Simon

“Love, Simon” is a 2018 romantic comedy based on the book “Simon vs the Homo Sapien Agenda” by Becky Albertalli (Click the book title for my review of the book.) Directed by Greg Berlanti, who wrote and produced CW’s shows like “Arrow,” “Riverdale,” and “The Flash,” the movie is the first major studio film that features gay teenage romance.

The movie follows Simon Spier, a closeted gay teen who meet another closeted gay teen in his school online. The two began an online relationship hidden from his family and friends. His life gets turned upset down when a classmate blackmailed Simon with screenshots of his online relationship. Simon must then chose whether to follow through with the demands or to have his world cave in around him before he is ready. 

The movie is brilliantly told. As someone who read the book before seeing the movie, it follows it almost plot the same as the book did. There are some instances where they add to the plot because it’s a movie. When it does, It adds more depth to the story and allows things to be fleshed out more. The ending of the movie is actually more epic than what was in the book.

The acting is extremely good in this movie. The characters are likable, minus the ones you aren’t supposed to like. Simon is probably the best character out of them all. You can’t help but love Simon. Nick Robinson did an extremely well job portraying Simon. My only complaint with acting was that Katherine Langford’s natural Australian accent came through at times and it was obvious. She did an amazing job but I’m probably just nitpicking a bit.

It was extremely refreshing to see a non stereotypically gay character. While they are getting better, most gay characters in TV/Movies have been some sort of stereotypes. The overly flamboyant gay guy, the self-hating gay guy, etc. There’s many of them and frankly, they exist but it wasn’t everyone. Simon Spier isn’t any of those stereotypes. He is just guy trying to figure out who is he. He just happens to be gay. He’s representing the people who couldn’t see themselves in a character before this. “Love, Simon” has allowed many people to finally see themselves in a movie character and relate to them.

The Verdict

“Love, Simon” is a quality teen romantic comedy. It’s not just a movie for LGBT, but something for anyone that want to see a good love story. “Love, Simon” will be the first of many movies that will finally allow more people to see themselves in the things they watch. Like the movie says, everyone deserves a great love story. It was about time that they got one. “Love, Simon” is that movie.

“Love, Simon” is still in theaters. It will out digital on May 29th and DVD/Blu-Ray on June 12th.

Movie Review: ‘In A Heartbeat’

in a heart sm

Unless you have living under a rock in the last couple of days, there is a movie short that has been taking the world by storm due to the fact that it took a topic that has been seen in so many movies and made it relevant to way more people. It also made people extremely pissed off.

“In A Heartbeat” is a short film that is about two young boys that fall in love. It follows Sherwin, who try to control and hide his feeling for his classmate, Jonathon, as his heart jumps out of his chest and try to help. It helps and ends up getting broke in half when Sherwin run away after being embarrassed by their classmates staring at them. The movie ends with Jonathon finding Sherwin hiding behind the bushes, returning the other half of his heart and falling in love. Literally, their hearts become one. It’s rather cute and adorable.

The story main point of the story that your heart wants what it wants and you can’t fight who you love. You can’t control who you fallen in love just like you can’t control what your how tall you are or anything like that. You also shouldn’t hide your feeling s or be ashamed of them because there’s nothing wrong with loving someone of the same gender.

It’s an adorable film that really pulls at your heart-strings. While there isn’t any dialogue, there doesn’t really need to be because it speaks for itself. It uses the music to fill in for the words and set the tone when it needs to be. It’s really heart wrenching towards the end when Sherwin runs away in embarrassment due to his fear that his classmates will judge him.

This isn’t some gay propaganda that is trying to turn your children into homosexuals.  You just can’t flip a switch and be Gay or Transgender. You are born that way. Besides, it they become gay just by watching this short, then their switch was all ready there.

It’s a movie that give representation to the LGBTQ community in a positive way. If you are a child that is gay, there isn’t anything that you can relate to on a “oh, I can see myself in that situation.” Everyone can relate to it but it’s just nice to see it get changed up instead of it just being a male/female relationship.

”In A Heartbeat” is a seriously good short film that takes a commonly used trope makes it more relatable to an audience that doesn’t usually get representation. Everything about it is amazing. I hope there’s a sequel because I’m emotionally invested into these two.
