HETEROSEXUALITY IS NOT A HURDLE
OH YEAH
TRY TO GET A DATE WITH LITERALLY ANYONE NORMAL
TRY GOING TO ANY FAMILY EVENT AND HAVING EVERYONE ASK YOU WHY YOU DONT HAVE A BOYFRIEND YET
AND WHEN YOU DO HAVE A BOYFRIEND WHY YOU HAVEN’T GOTTEN MARRIED YET
AND WHEN YOU ARE MARRIED WHY YOU HAVEN’T HAD KIDS YET
once you come out as gay, and people accept it or don’t, THAT IS THE END.  that is the end of the conversation.  YOU LUCKY FUCKERS

Lol that’s right. They either accept you’re gay or not.Or kick you outOr send you to reprogramming campsOr sterilize youOr murder you
Boy us queers got it so easy.

Pro tip: if your comment or post ends with telling an oppressed group they are “so fucking lucky”, delete your post and instead occupy yourself with the no doubt arduous task of removing your head from your own ass.

straight people like “i cant get a sweetheart :(” queer people like “please dont murder me on the street”

News flash: even when you are gay, people still asking where your heterosexual relationship is.

Pro Tip: A good response to this is: “Because I haven’t met anyone as good for me as ‘name of questioner’s spouse/partner/Xfriend/whatever’ is for you.” Usually they will pause, then either tell you to keep looking, or make some comment that to the effect of ‘you can do better than that.’

Reblog if you have read fan fiction better than some published books

Help me prove a point

I have never reblogged anything faster.

50 Shades of Grey exists - in my time I’ve read Teen Titans fanfiction written by 12 year olds that was better.

I’ve read Teen Titans fanfiction that was better than some of the comic runs!

And if you want a treat - check out Chris Dee’s ‘Catwoman’ series, based on a ‘classic’ Selina Kyle. Lovely writing and concepts!

loud sighing
look kiddos: due to tumblr’s half-baked tagging system (where only so many tags count towards actually categorizing a given post), tags on this site have evolved into an acceptable form of dispensing and sharing commentary, but that is not the case on other websites — ESPECIALLY AO3. tags on AO3 are intended to be functional, not conversational, and not only do excessive paragraphs of tags like these look patently ridiculous and sell your work short, they also make life harder for the site’s tag wranglers who volunteer their time to keep the tags organized so people can actually find your fic.
in short, knock it off.

It’s not the fault of new AO3 users that Tumblr is a terrible (yet-addictive) social interface that allows for commentary-via-tags - because honestly tumblr’s tagging system isn’t good for much else.  A person who has been immersed in Tumblr and then choosing to use AO3 for posting their fics (which! yay! good! because tumblr ALSO sucks for fandom when it comes to posting/archiving/staying power of fan-creations) isn’t always going to understand AO3 right off the bat.
Fandom is always shifting and changing and the days where everyone was very meticulous about tags because we all came from places like Livejournal and archive websites…it’s no longer The Main Fandom Thing anymore.  Fandom is now images and random headcanons and a lot - a lot of self-loathing, it seems. Fandom-creators on Tumblr are really into self-loathing and self-deprecating and downplaying their creativity.  What with ‘my pen slipped oops’ and ‘ugh I wrote something whatever it sucks bye’ and other pervasive disclaimers I see paired with posted fanworks.
But that’s a conversation for another time. 
Right now, I’m just talking about understanding why these fandom creators coming in from tumblr do that awful tumblr tagging on AO3.  They don’t do it on purpose, they’ve just been taught that it’s acceptable because tumblr is a terrible interface that provides no actual organization or fanwork accountability, and rather it enables a mindset of rambling disorganized self-loathing among today’s fandom-creators.

perfect commentary
keep in mind the tagging interface at A03 is necessary to help people FIND FIC, since clicking on a tag, particularly a name or ship tag, takes you to all the other fics that feature that ship/character.
So for the love of all that is holy, please type your tag and then SELECT the tag that pops up automatically - for fandom, characters and ship in particular, so that you are using the exact tag OTHER people in that fandom are using.
That will ensure your fic gets read by more people for a start, not to mention make like easier for the people who maintain tags.
Please!
PLEASE?
