Is this even an Olympics or is it just the whole world passive aggressively protesting Russia’s Anti-LGBT+ laws

except nobody is fucking protesting at all? what has anyone actually done to signify a protest? germany wearing colorful outfits…

In my opinion. Going to the games and making it about the sport instead of politics is like saying sports mean more than the rights of LGBTQ. I hate that there aren’t people showing support to the poor Russian LGBTQ people suffering in silence, in fear of being arrested for speaking out for them. I don’t understand why people think we must “respect the laws of the country” when the laws of the country are bullshit and take away human rights. Not to mention the shit ton of people under paid for the Olympics, who lost there homes and giving little to no compensation, and so many more violations of people’s rights.

*SPOILERS* (For anyone who still watches glee besides me.)

"Well you stood there with me in the doorway

My hands shake I’m not usually this way but 

You pull me in and I’m a little more brave

It’s the first kiss,

It’s flawless

Really something,

It’s fearless.”

I continue to watch this show just so I can follow Klaine. I love this couple and it reminds me so much of Chris and I (Without the Cheating, although that version of Teenage Dream breaks me apart in the best and worst ways). You may think that I am stupid for liking this show and I don’t care. I love the cheesiness of love, romance and in this case, musical numbers too. I think romance is one of the greatest experiences life has to offer. This was adorable and the most personal and honest proposals I’ve seen on T.V. Maybe its never having a fairytale prince and prince proposal as a kid to hope for one day, maybe its how adorable they are together, maybe its Darren Criss’s acting, maybe this show hooked me in when I still didn’t really know who I was and helped me feel comfortable with myself, maybe its the bow ties, I don’t know. All I know is this show continues to make me smile, cry, and laugh (Not to mention love crazy) and helps me deal with the stressful and bad parts of life.

I am Stephen,

I am a Gleek, a Klaine lover and a fairytale romantic.

Don’t like it?

Bite me. :)

Thanks Taylor Timmermans for this. If you don’t think its a worthy cause to boycott chick-fil-a, check out the pictures from Eat Chick-fil-a day. This infuriates me. These are snap shots from different people at different packed chick-fil-a’s with lines around and down the street. If the competition to gay marriage is doing this, then we have to show our support.

YES. Okay. SO. recently I am so fed up with people doing this. Sure, the chick-fil-a guy is allowed to voice his opinion but so am I and I can do so by boycotting companies I do not agree with. I do this because of days like “support chick-fil-a day” where thousands of homophobic people went to the store to help them support the fight for one man, one woman, marriage. I would bargain that their views on transgender people is even worse. I know they just sell chicken, but all of those events against equality need someone to fund them and chick-fil-a does. 
Its not just that though. If I was to go into a chick-fil-a, I would not feel safe. I would feel like I was being judged for who I am, so why would I want to go? 
Seriously though, telling me I am not entitled to boycott is hypocrisy because of all the boycotts happening with other giant companies supporting gay marriage by those who appose. Also by telling me my opinion to dislike his opinion, you are doing what you are telling me not to do. You are saying I shouldn’t be allowed to voice my opinion.
I want homophobic people to say things like this company did, then I know who I should support and who I shouldn’t. I don’t want to be paying for my discrimination. 
Boycotting and speaking out about chick-fil-a is helping a message get to people who think homophobia isn’t a big deal. To this day people are being discriminated, hurt and killed because of their sexuality. Be it, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or any other branch of the LGBT, homophobia needs to stop and I will not stop fighting until I know that LGBT people are free to love around the world. 
Thank you for reading if you did.
