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.

The Bernie Campaign Teamed Up With Cardi B To Talk About Police Brutality, DREAMers And Raising Wages

The Bernie Campaign Teamed Up With Cardi B To Talk About Police Brutality, DREAMers And Raising Wages

@BernieSanders / Twitter

Vermont Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and rapper Cardi B have been teasing their on-screen discussion on issues ranging from police brutality to canceling student debt for a few weeks now. Finally, the Sanders campaign published the video in all its nearly ten minutes of glory.

The two met at Detroit’s TEN nail bar, a deluxe nail salon founded and operated by two women of color. Cardi B came prepared with a list of questions that her own followers have brought up with her. In essence, Cardi B served as a representative of her fans’ political interests and brought them to a Presidential candidate to see if he would be the guy to officially represent their needs in the nation’s most meaningful capacity–as POTUS 2020.

Six weeks ago, Cardi asked her fans what they would want to hear Bernie Sanders discuss.

On July 2, the rapper shared a video to Instagram telling her followers that her number one question to Bernie Sanders is about how to end police brutality in this country. “What would you like to ask? what change would you like to see in your community and in the USA 🇺🇸?” she posted. “2020 is getting very close let’s get familiar with who is running and how they can change the country! Put your questions down below and your questions may be answered very soon.”

Nobody expected she was actually going to sit down with Bernie Sanders and represent the Bardi Gang’s political issues.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

Hilariously, Sanders wiggled his fingers alongside Cardi B’s as he told us that, “Cardi B’s nails are juuuust a little different than mine. Our views on the issues are pretty similar.” 

Cardi B absolutely nailed it as an interviewer. She steered the conversation and truly represented her followers’ interests. She opened the video to remind everyone that, “A couple of weeks ago, I asked my followers what types of questions would you want to ask a Democratic candidate. Let’s go baby.” Here are the takeaways.

Number one: Cardi and Bernie’s shared goal is getting Trump out of office.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

“You know what I’m trying to do is I’m trying to advocate the youth in my community because I feel like there’s a serious problem right now in America,” Cardi opens. “We have this bully as a President and the only way to take him out is somebody winning.”

“We’ve got to get rid of Donald Trump, obviously. Because Donald Trump is an overt racist. He’s just way out there.”

The first question on Cardi’s mind is putting an end to police brutality in America. Bernie has a three-pronged plan.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

Cardi B got vulnerable and talked about the mental effects of what it’s like to “constantly see on social media police brutality against black men and against minorities. What are we going to do to change that, because that is discouraging our people? We constantly see our men getting killed every day, and it seems like nobody cares.”

Sanders wants to end the militarization of police departments, which he sees as a form of intimidation.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

To address police brutality, he wants the Department of Justice to investigate every police killing to ensure accountability and prevent local police departments from covering up crimes. He also wants to federally obligate police departments to “look like the community they serve” and “not like an oppressive army.” Sanders related to the “disgust” of seeing 1 in 4 young black men in the criminal justice system. His solution to that specific issue is to invest in free education instead of investing in prisons and incarceration. 

During his first week as President, Sanders will reinstate the executive order that gave protections to DREAMers, and he wants to extend those protections to their parents.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

Cardi had recalled meeting a fan who enrolled for protections under DACA and is now facing deportation back to Mexico–a place that he has no living memory of ever knowing. Bernie wants the 1.8 million young people who qualify for DACA to experience the freedoms of this country. When he said he wants to expand that program to their parents, Cardi did a little jiggle and let out a “Yeahhh!”

Bernie is going to raise taxes to allow free healthcare and education, but it will be cheaper on a day to day for Americans.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

“People are afraid to pay more taxes than they’re already paying,” Cardi rightly stated. Bernie’s plan to offer free health care for all will ultimately be cheaper for the overwhelming majority of people than paying for premiums, deductibles, and copayments.

Cardi B will never forget how hard it was to make a living wage before she found fame.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

Cardi B brought up how “certain people like to brag” about how there are more jobs in America, but she’s questioning the quality of these jobs. Why are her followers having to work two or three jobs to survive? Bernie wants to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. 

By placing a modest tax on Wall Street, Sanders plans to cancel student debt.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

Forty-five million Americans are living with student debt. Sanders knows that those of us in our 20s and 30s were told that we had to go to college to get a good job. Where the good jobs at? Our generation is far less likely to own homes and make financial progress in our lives. For the first time, our generation is worse off than the generation before it. 

Sanders has a message to Cardi B’s followers: “Trump doesn’t want people of color to be participating in the political process.”

“Participate in the political process,” he tells POC. You can spend five minutes to register to vote here.

Little Boy On His Way to Kindergarten Tells His Mom ‘Don’t Be Scared’ And All Of Twitter Is Sobbing

Prepare yourself to desperately want kids if you don’t already. Possibly the cutest kid alive went to Kindergarten for the first time on Monday, and was feeling very ready. That said, his mom was far less ready to see her baby boy go off to school for the first time. So she did what any other mom would do–she asked him to “tell [her] something to help [her] feel better.” Oh, and she recorded everything and his response went viral on Twitter because it’s 2019.

Now, Twitter is begging the Universe to impregnate them so they can have a perfect muñeco lindo like this one.

“You’re going to your first day of Kindergarten.” his mom says. “How do you feel?”

Credit: @headdphanieeeee / Twitter

“Good,” he says matter of factly. “Good? You feel good?” she asks. “No,” he says. Incredulous, she double checks with her son and he answers her again, “No!” He’s not nervous, auntie.

“You’re not nervous? I’m nervous. Can you tell me something to make me feel better?”

Just two weeks prior, a white supremacist drove 10 hours to El Paso, Texas to specifically target Latinos. He killed 22 people with an assault-type rifle. Everyone is scared. Except for this pequeño.

“Umm… Just please don’t be scared ’cause there’s nothing to be afraid of,” he comforts his mom. At this point, all the comments look like this: “THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I’VE SEEN.”

What the hell how is this kid 40 already?” asks one fan.

Credit: @headdphanieeeee / Twitter

Another commented, “I feel like 1 conversation with him, he can help me file my taxes, figure out why I’m depressed, tell me what foods to eat that can burn fat while I sleep and tell me the meaning of life. He GENIUS smart, I can tell. Lol”

Other parents could relate to Liz’s fears and are hoping their kid feels as confident as this little one.

Credit: @headdphanieeeee / Twitter

Another dad was commiserating with the mom’s fear, knowing he had to drop his daughter off at school soon, too. “This is awesome!” he tweeted. “Next week my baby starts kindergarten and I swear daddy is gonna be in tears to see my princess go somewhere without me being there! So I feel you on this”

His official “First Day of School” pic is even more precious.

Based in Fort Worth, Texas, Liz is clearly cultivating a bright kid. She captioned this photo, “So masterfully created and crafted. Wildfire-setting all things in his path ablaze.” she  An uncontrolled, genuine, grateful, innocuous, exuberant, kind, and messy version of two humans. A concoction of inquiries with very little answers, yet the burning question still rises within me…how am I so fortunate to know you? How giving Mother Earth has been for gifting us you.”

Folks have asked, “how is he so emotionally intelligent at such a young age?” Liz is raising him so, so right.

Credit: @ellyez42 / Instagram

She captioned this photo from March: “Boys will be boys, with respectful demeanors who hold the aptitude to take no for an answer.” I’m sobbing.

“Trust your offspring and they will deliver honesty,” she continues. “Remind them that it’s okay to cry, then laugh with them when the tears subside. Teach boys to water their gardens so that they can watch their flowers bloom until they are old enough to pick the right one.”

Everyone is wishing him a happy first day of school, and even offering to send him care packages.

Credit: @YatMysterio / Twitter

This new fan is just enamored with him. She tracked down Liz’s Instagram and commented, “Twitter brought me here, amazing kid with a big future ahead. Keep him protected at all cost. I don’t know of your life, but if you are a single parent. You are doing an amazing job 💙 reminds me of the bond I have with my mom. If you can send me anything he likes, books, snacks, toys. I’d love to send him a care package!

Seems like his first day might have been more boring than anticipated.

Just 17 more years to go, pequeño! Chin up! Well, not *that* up. This kid has gotten more bendiciones in one day than most of us have had in our whole lives, so we know he’s going places. He’s been dubbed a “hero” and folks are looking to him “to do soo much in the future.”

Shoutout to this kid for giving Texas something to smile about.

Also, Liz, can you write up a brief parenting course for everyone else out here? Brava.
