Aside of that I'm a fan of heavy metal, fantasy of all sorts (Discworld, "The Last Unicorn", "Neverending Story" and the like), video games (Elder Scrolls, Tomb Raiders, Warcraft, Unreal), Transformers, Batman, Sherlock Holmes and a load of other things.
I'm an outspoken atheist.

"GOD why does fandom have to make everyone GAY??"
i know right??? why not interpret some people as bi or pan, or asexual, or maybe an aromantic demisexual, or—
lol i’m so sick of this homophobic ass post
(the appropriate response to “UGH why GAYS??” is never “i know right??” i don’t care how clever you think your reasoning is)
You just stated that making all characters gay instead of representing other sexual and gender identities, or even making them gay IF they are canonical something else than hetero- or homosexual is a good thing.
You need to sit down and reconsider what you did there.
lol i didn’t even, and fearmongering about how a particular marginalized group is taking over some domain just by having some representation in it and is going to force ~~everyone~~ in it to be part of that group under some kind of oppressive hegemony on their part that has never existed is classically bigoted
No, no, you’re not getting out of this one by pretending you did not make a bi/pan/aphobic statement up there.
The initial post was about how you have some arsehats being serious about it being disgusting that the fandom turns the vast majority of characters homosexual, despite there being either no canonic evidence to it (queerbaiting doesn’t count because that’s some homophobic shit in itself) or the canonical evidence point to something else. Sometimes a character is even confirmed to be bi, pan or asexual. Yet, the fandom often does go and says
'it was just a phase, they're just experimenting blah blah blah', trying to convince everyone that the canonical unknown/not-binary-sexual character is indeed homosexual. Which cause others to be upset because they are disgusted by the idea that the character could be everything but heterosexual.
Now, this is what the initial post mocks. You however went and said
'no, you mustn't mock that statement by pointing out that that both sides are idiots because they erase other (sometimes canonical) sexual identities. because it is always better to make character gay instead of anything else'
This is your opinion, yet you acted as if it must be viewed as universal.
You, my good person, are a bi-, pan-, a- and otherphobic hack.
Also, remember kids, canonicaly straight characters are eeeeviiil! We need to make all our fantasies as unrealistic as possibe and remove any possibility of heterosexuality outside of the designated villain. Because since we’re minorities, we’re allowed to treat the majority the same way they treat us and pretend they do not exist.
But no, seriously, I don’t even bother to label my gender identity or sexuality because it’s way too confusing, and it pisses me off when someone turns a straight character with an established relationship, which is kind, loving and just overall a good thing that happened to said character, and turns them gay, usually demonizing his/her straight canonical partner. Because heaven forbid heterosexual love was ever happy.
And then wonder why each time we push for equality, we get called heterophobic.
But try to remember that there’s nothing wrong with having a headcanon that’s different from canon. It’s okay if you think a character iis gay/bi/pan/whichever and you stick to that in whatever you make up about them. Really. That’s what headcanons are for, adding stuff you wish canon had but doesn’t.
What’s not okay is forcing that headcanon on other people. Demonizing, belittling or otherwise mocking someone else’s interpretation or fantasy just because it doesn’t agree with yours. Worse, yet, treating your own as the only viable option.
The Internet is huge. If you find something you don’t want to see, look away and go elsewhere. I’m sure you’ll find what you want. But stop bashing others for doing what they want with their own ideas.
Headcanons are okay as long as they’re in your head.
