• Them: I don't think kids should be exposed to gay relationships.
  • You: Why not?
  • Them: It's introducing children to sexuality! They're too young for that!
  • You: So when a prince and princess kiss in a Disney movie, are they introduced to sexuality? When the prince and the princess get married and have a child, is that introducing your child to sexuality?
  • Them: NO! But if they see a man and a man, or a woman and a woman together... they're going to start asking questions! Like how a man and a man can... you know, do anything together.
  • You: You think the only thing people think when they see a gay couple is "I wonder how they have sex"? Furthermore, you think a CHILD is going to even know what that means? When the prince and the princess kiss, does your 4 year old daughter ask, "mommy, how do people have intercourse"? No. She just sees two people in love. If you remember when you were a kid, you probably didn't think about sex every time you saw two people happy together.
  • Them: But it'll bring up all kinds of questions, it'll confuse my child!
  • You: Then be a fucking parent and explain it to your child. The only question that might be brought up is "mom, why don't you want gay people to be happy?". And when you don't have a good answer for that question, you can look your child in the eye and say "It's because I'm a bigot".


But no really.

If you see a female agent of SHIELD in a show called AGENTS OF SHIELD respond to a year full of abuse, physical violence, and sexual violence by becoming competent as an agent - something she has told us that she wanted for at least half of last season. 

and your first thought is 


How do you not realize how shitty you sound.

Remember, these are the people with such severe cognitive dissonance that they openly said “Chloe Bennet might be Chinese-American but she’s not playing a mixed race character on the show, and she barely even looks Asian" and yet somehow were shocked and upset when people explained how horrifically racist they were being.

I still have to go and remind myself that actually happened from time to time, because I convince myself that it’s so unreal that it couldn’t possibly have been true.
