Gay Twitter Was Talking About More Than Kevin Hart Last Week

Anytime people get together in good spirits, hilarity usually ensues. Anytime people get together on social media, hilarity, drama, controversy and a slew of other things are guaranteed to follow, especially on Twitter. One of the most hilarious things about that is when you have a group of people who are unabashedly themselves. So much so that whatever they feel, and whatever they decide to post online is permitted and nothing is forbidden. Whether that be the Kevin Hart/Oscar’s controversy or some nude mannequins, all things are up for discussion in the most colorful way possible. This kind of honesty and openness is a wonderful thing, as long as no one gets hurt, of course. Last week, #gaytwitter was hysterical in the best possible way.

#KevinHartOscars

Twitter @meakoopa

For some time now, people in our society have been permitted to say whatever they want regardless of whom it harms. Comedian Kevin Hart was been called out for uncouth jokes he’s made over the years. He has been stepped down from hosting the Oscars and justice hath been served. And this is how we got here.

No, Sharon!

Twitter @Asquared1234

Everyone knows that person who just has to ask how a gay couple met. Everyone also knows that Grindr is a thing. So… just stop asking already.

This Should Be a Song Lyric

Twitter @85Halcyon

Someone, anyone, please turn this tweet into a song lyric and compose a beautiful ballad about this girl’s girlfriend’s hat. It rhymes, it’s cadence is great, and it needs to be shared with the world stat!

Father and Son

Twitter @MeMyselfandMyke

The love between this man and his father is something that doesn’t always happen when some come out. The love and support and hilarious banter between these two is gold.

Furry Fever

Twitter @SteffiJarnefelt

So furries are a thing this year. Don’t worry just wait for it, it’ll happen.

He’s Fabulous!

 Twitter @instinctmag

This is the single most perfect example of body positivity that it hurts. This gorgeous man changed his entire image and he is the most spectacularly beautiful bear this week. That beard tho!

Daddy or Nah

Twitter @damno_0

So, discussing things is something people do, and someone had to ask what we like to talk about. While there are many worthy topics, only one can be called DADDY!

Le Social Media GayDar

Twitter @no1heartfan

So apparently someone has figured how to find out if someone is gay based on social media. While this isn’t necessarily rocket-science or even a science at all, it can help save millions of members of the LGBTQ community a whole lot of time and battery life on their phones.

Something Sweet is in the Cauldron this Holiday Season

Twitter @fuckpidgeons

While you’re sitting across from your family this holiday, the perfect thing to throw everyone for a loop is right here. This little bit of magical wonder will leave many in awe and bewilderment. If it did not exist before now, it totally should from henceforward. Be warned, some may take offense. 

Daddies, Daddies Everywhere

Twitter @cunnnilingus

So, when you’re alone at night and you can’t get the idea of a Daddy out of your head, what do you do? What else is one to do, other than fap fap fap the night away.

Respect That

Twitter @TransGalicorn

The exchange between these two friends is priceless. It is truly a sign that friendship is magic.

The F Word

Twitter @Timmycaunce

As a part of a public service, #gaytwitter is hosting a debate this Holiday. Is it appropriate to use certain words in music if the context is acceptable?  #gaytwitter has the answers for you.

Let’s Play Pretend

Twitter @TheNarcisistas

While it isn’t the best thing one can do, sometimes you must play your part to get anywhere in life. Sometimes you cannot tell everyone what you really feel. Whether that be out of fear or simply not wanting to change things. Other times you just hope for that small chance that he’s gay or bi or bicurious too and he will give you the D.

Planning Ahead

Twitter @Juiceandvodka_

Considering that society retirement is something that everyone seems to think about, this dude is skipping way ahead to the proverbial epilogue of his later years. While stripping is typically a young person’s game, no one ever said anything about doing it in the afterlife. He plans to provide entertainment in hell. Not a bad plan.

I NEED IT SO BAD RIGHT NOW

Twitter @TenCaratHill

So have you ever needed to just get it in… or in you? Yeah, that urge can drive you insane. You almost feel like you’re going through withdrawal symptoms. Some days you just gotta have the d.

The Great Tumblr Migration

Twitter @moleculargay

Since Tumblr practically shut down, the gay community on Twitter has gotten much bigger and some really know how to make an entrance. Let’s just say some people will be noticed when they walk into a bar, that bar being Twitter.

Stand Out

Twitter @JimmyWhetzel

Look, hun, don’t let them chiseled jawlines make you feel self-conscious. They ain’t got nothin’ on you. It’s far more likely with that smile, they’re all watching your tush wiggling in them jeans. Even if they ain’t, you can still go home play Smash Bros. and create the gangbang of your dreams.

The Struggle is Real

Twitter @LaMickiMinjaj

When you’re a young gay man starting out in the world, post high school, clothes can get really pricey and what you’ve been wearing for the past few years doesn’t seem to cut it. That’s depressing. Start accessorizing honey. 

It Just Got Really Real

Twitter @BlackGayTweetz

If you choose sides on the internet, especially in a community as seemingly small as #gaytwitter, people pay attention and call you on your crap. Whoever it was that incurred the wrath of BlkGayTweets, may some heavenly presence help this poor unfortunate soul.

The King Hath Cometh and He’s Blue… and Black

Twitter @ActualHumanWill

Last weekend was The Game Awards. This is a huge annual event for many in the nerd spectrum. This particular award show, someone huge received the E-sports Player of the Year Award. Clad in his signature Blue Fox suit, Sonic Fox a self-proclaimed announced that he is a furry and gay man in as proud and nervous of a fashion as he could. He is a shining example of the LGBTQ community.

Radical Feminists Have Seized Control of a Federal Building in Mexico in Protest of the Government’s Apathy Towards Rampant Femicide

Radical Feminists Have Seized Control of a Federal Building in Mexico in Protest of the Government’s Apathy Towards Rampant Femicide

Last week, Mexican feminist activists took over the National Human Rights Commissions federal building in a move to bring greater awareness to the scourge of gender-based violence and femicide that has racked Mexico for decades.

According to the federal Interior Secretariat, the statistics in Mexico have recently taken a turn for the worse.

Domestic violence against women has became an even more acute problem since the pandemic has forced women to stay insider with their abusers. Emergency distress calls reporting domestic violence have risen by 50%.

The occupation of the Human Rights building is just another chapter in the saga of the “Ni Una Menos” (Not One More Woman) movement, an anti-femicide collective born in Argentina that has steadily been gaining steam in Mexico since 2019.

In recent years, anti-femicide demonstrations have been sparked by various heinous crimes against women or girls that have been largely overlooked by law enforcement officials.

Unfortunately, the government of Mexico has appeared to be apathetic to the wave of femicide that is overwhelming the women of their country.

Recently, when President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was asked to address Mexico’s gender violence epidemic, he demurred, stating that he didn’t “want femicide to detract” from the raffle his administration was holding for the sale of the presidential airplane.

As for the feminist activists at the heart of Ni Una Menos and the federal building occupation, the government’s failure to respond to anti-woman violence is the primary fuel for their anger. 

“We’re here so that the whole world will know that in Mexico they kill women and nobody does anything about it,” said Yesenia Zamudio to the LA Times. According to Zamudio, she is still seeking justice for the murder of her 19-year-old daughter four years ago.

The women of Mexico appear to be fed up, grasping at any and all tactics that have the potential to incite change on a grander scale.

Their tactics may seem dramatic to some, but it’s undeniable that they are no longer being ignored. As of now, the radical activists are pulling attention-grabbing stunts like decorating a portrait of Mexican Revolution leader Francisco Madero with lipstick and purple hair.

They’re also making headlines for vandalizing the federal building’s walls and splashing paint on the doors of the presidential palace.

One thing is for sure: something has to change. Otherwise, thousands of innocent women and girls will continue to be raped, abused, and murdered while their perpetrators escape with immunity.

Joe Biden Speaks Alongside ‘Fearless Fighter’ Kamala Harris In First Appearance And Recalls Her Family’s Immigrant Story

Joe Biden Speaks Alongside ‘Fearless Fighter’ Kamala Harris In First Appearance And Recalls Her Family’s Immigrant Story

After weeks of speculation and anticipation, presidential candidate Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that he has officially picked his running mate.

In a history-making announcement, Biden revealed that he had tapped California Sen. Kamala Harris to be his VP Pick.

“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” Biden announced in a tweet.

On Wednesday, Biden held his first campaign event alongside running mate Kamala Harris in Delaware.

During their speeches, the two candidates wore masks and kept their distance in keeping with COVID-19 standards.

Speaking about his VP pick, Biden described Harris as coming from an “America’s story.” Biden described Harris as “a child of immigrants” who “knows personally how immigrant families enrich our country as well as the challenges of what it means to grow up Black and Indian-American in the United States of America,” he explained. “And this morning, all across the nation, little girls woke up, especially little Black and brown girls that feel overlooked and undervalued in their communities, but today — today just maybe they’re seeing themselves for the first time in a new way as president and vice presidents.”

In a speech of her own, Harris emphasized the importance of family and urged citizens to vote.  “We need a mandate that proves that the past few years do not represent who we are or who we aspire to be,” she said. “Joe likes to say that character is on the ballot. And it’s true,” she explained. “I’ve had a lot of titles over my career and certainly vice president will be great. But ‘Momala’ will always be the one that means the most.”

Harris’s nomination makes her the first Black and first Indian-American woman on either major party’s presidential ticket.

Harris is a former prosecutor from California who challenged Biden in her own presidential bid last year. Her nomination makes her the fourth woman to appear on a major presidential ballot. Before her, Geraldine Ferraro ran as a Democratic vice presidential nominee in 1984. In 2008, Republican Sarah Palin ran as a vice presidential nominee, later in 2016, Hillary Clinton became the Democratic presidential nominee.

Biden’s choice was one that has long been in the works. In March of this year, he revealed that he would make a point to have a woman as his running mate and in July he announced that he had narrowed his picks down to four Black women.

Kamala Harris was elected to Congress in 2016.

This has been Harris’ first term as a senator. Before, she served as the California attorney general. During her time as AG, Harris formed a lasting friendship with Biden’s late son Beau who was attorney general at the time in Delaware. Writing about Beau’s death, in her memoir The Truths We Hold, Harris recalled that “there were periods when I was taking the heat when Beau and I talked every day, sometimes multiple times a day,” she wrote in her memoir. “We had each other’s backs.”

Biden’s son Beau died in 2015 from brain cancer. Harris attended his funeral.

During his announcement, Biden mentioned Harris’ friendship with his son.

“I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse,” Biden tweeted. “I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.”

So far, it seems there are quite a bit of Harris x Biden supporters.

Fans were quick to give their support and applaud her candidacy.

In a tweet acknowledging her nomination, Harris wrote “@JoeBiden can unify the American people because he’s spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he’ll build an America that lives up to our ideals. I’m honored to join him as our party’s nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”

Here’s to 2020 y’all. Get ready to make history.
