As a gay man I find it creepy when straight women fan over gay relationships, both in fictional and real life ones.
There’s something really patronizing about their ‘OMG THEY ARE SO CUTE TOGETHER SO ADORABLE OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGGGGGG’.
Gay relationships are a very real normal thing and when you girls act like that it’s like it’s removing the normality from it and making it something extra special which it isn’t.
Even worse if they find it hot; it’s fetishization it. It’s the same way many lesbian women probably feel disgusted by the hordes of straight men that get turned on by lesbian relationships and only think of them as this ultra hot fantasy.
The thought of straight women getting turned on by me and my boyfriend makes me want to vomit. My relationship is mine and if they are overly fond of it it’s like it’s taking something away from it.
I appreciate your advocacy and support but please start seeing gay relationships in a more mature manner.
Not just straight women though, I’ve seen plenty of queer, bisexual, and even lesbian women fetishizing gay men. Nevertheless, I 100% agree with this post.
