Despite the LGBTQ community contributing so much to the world in terms of art, music, fashion, and so many other forms of culture, there are still those that find it hard to believe that LGBTQ actually exists. Sometimes this happens on purpose, other times the fact that someone may be queer just flies over the head of many people. Luckily for you, we have gathered some of these instances in a list. So, sit back, relax, and start scrolling through these funny and embarrassing moments where people somehow forgot that the LGBTQ community existed. We hope you enjoy the list!
Well, this is kind of sad, but we have to imagine that this was used a while ago. Imagine being the lover of someone, and then once they die, you see this in the obituary rather than your name when it talks about spouses. That would be heartbreaking. Let’s be thankful that things have gotten much better for same-sex couples. We could not imagine this happening in a paper today!
This is sad, but it’s also kind of funny. If everyone knew this term was used as a code for being gay, then it really wasn’t much of a secret, was it?
This one is a joke, but there is probably someone out there that believes these two are just friends and not a couple. Maybe this is how all sports teams should make up after a game. Basketball, football, soccer, hockey, whatever. If a fight breaks out, maybe they just need to embrace and kiss, and everything will be fine. We’re sure that won’t be happening any time soon, but it would be funny.
Samantha Kerr is Australian. Maybe this is just how the people from the land down under make up with one another. From what we can see, it looks like it may be effective.
Not Gay Enough
To see some people, the “B” in LGBT must not really exist! Maybe they think it stands for bicycle or bystander, or just anything other than bisexual. We’re sad that this woman was shot down like this, and we really hope that this publisher got his act together. Bisexual people are just as much of the LGBTQ community as anyone else. There’s no need to act like a gatekeeper and push people out!
We hope this woman was able to get her book published by someone who wasn’t a huge jerk. If she needs anyone to read it for her, we would be more than happy to!
The two women in hats look alike, so we could see why people would assume they were sisters but come on! At some point, you have to realize that something is up. How often do sisters live together? If you were to see them in public holding hands, cuddling, and doing all sorts of other things, are you going to think they’re sisters? Some people are just on a different planet.
There is no doubting that these two women look alike, but we’re sure they gave heavy clues that they were in no way related. Oh well. We hope they had a happy life together.
Keep Doing That
That person in the second photo will catch on eventually, we’re sure. But for now, we’re going to make fun of him. They rightfully were downvoted for the comment they left. Why else would a woman say that if she weren’t attracted to women? Of course, this person probably doesn’t think that women could like women. When will this type of thinking end? Hopefully, they have left any other dumb comments.
Some people are just clueless. It’s nice to try to be kind and patient with everyone, but when it comes to people like this, sometimes it's best to just leave them behind.
Sounds like Alexander the Great went through the heaviest heartbreak known to mankind when Hephaestion died. But if we let the historians tell it, they were just drinking pals. Nothing more than that could ever be possible! Sadly, this is not the only time this has happened in history. There are numerous occasions where figure's significant others have been reduced to just friends when they were much more than that.
We hope that we never experience what Alexander the Great went through. But we do hope that he remembered all of the good times they had. This would make a great romantic film!
Ok, this is pretty funny! How oblivious do you have to be to think that these two young women are just friends? All the signs are right there in front of you. It’s obvious that they are a couple. On one hand, we’re blown away that someone could not see that they are in love. But on the other hand, we would love to be this clueless about the world around us.
Wedding rings, sharing a bed, a special note, and this man still thinks that they are just friends. Who knows, maybe this is how he and his friends celebrate one another’s birthdays.
We’re not sure how the first thing that comes to mind in a situation like this is that the person talking is the person’s boyfriend. It’s almost as funny as it is sad. But to be fair to the person, sometimes context can get lost on the internet. We do love how the person responded with the photo of the shirt. There may not be a better response anywhere on the internet.
This is a prime example of why you should think before you speak or type. If they had just waited for a little while, they would have realized what was going on!
For starters, what’s it matter if your daughter is living with her best friend at 27. That sounds awesome, and marriage isn’t everything! Secondly, we’d hate to be the one to have to tell you this, but that is no longer your daughter’s best friend! We’re sure that’s how it may come off to you and maybe others, but your daughter is in love with a woman. The earlier you accept that, the better.
At some point, you must realize that something is up, right? There is no way they could be together for so long and you still think that they’re only friends. That’s insane to us!
This tweet and the picture need to be hanging somewhere in The Louvre. Go throw Mona Lisa in the trash, and then hang this in her place. This is perfection. We’re sure that the bus driver was being serious and wasn’t trying to be mean in any way, but what makes this tweet is that you can just tell that it’s true. Good on the driver for not judging a book by its cover
Sometimes the best stories happen at the most random times. We’re not sure we would have been able to hold it together when the driver asked the question! That would have been too much.
Is this something that is scientifically proven? We doubt it, but this guy seems pretty serious about it....just look at the expression on his face. Something tells us that he may be having some feelings about beardless men that he’s pushing down. Whatever is going on with this guy, we hope he gets it figured out. Living your best life means living it honestly. It doesn’t seem like he is doing that.
He’s telling on himself with what he said. There is nothing wrong with being attracted to men without beards. There are plenty of mean without beards in the world if that’s what he likes.
Tweets like this one are the best. You wish you could be there when it finally clicks in this person’s head what’s going on. But, for those that are confused like the person tweeting, the person who tweeted this transitioned from a woman to a man. We can see how that could be confusing but come on! Some people need to do a better job of remembering that LGBTQ people exist!
Congratulations to the guy in the photo. He wanted to live his truth, and he’s done just that. A for the person tweeting, hopefully, they understand how transitioning works now.
Yet another couple has been mistaken for being friends. We’re sure it’s frustrating for the people who are in the relationship, but as bystanders, it’s still pretty funny. These people have the same last name, own a company together, live together, and people are still thinking that they are just friends. That’s hilarious to us. We hope that these two women and their businesses continue to thrive in the future!
We’re not sure what type of business these women own, but we would love to buy from them. They look like they are really nice and a lot of fun.
Why isn’t there a choice for homosexuals? Why isn’t there one for bisexuals? We’re not sure what this little quiz is for, but it seems like they completely forgot that not everyone in the world is straight! Maybe those choices are what’s under the more options section. Also, is involving a doctor necessary? This whole thing is confusing, but we just hope that they remake it so that it is more accepting of everyone.
We’d like to see how many people clicked “I do not understand the question”. Something tells us those who couldn’t see their sexuality on there were clicking on that one.
Nothing wrong with being short, but something tells us that Joe may be on the short side by the way he was aggravated by her answer. And of course, he took offense to her not wanting to date a short guy without even thinking that she may not want to date any guys because she likes women. It’s wired into a lot of people’s brains to think that everyone is straight.
Hopefully, this woman has found a nice short, average height, or tall woman to date. And as for Joe, we hope that he has gotten over that insecurity that made him call her shallow.
Over Three Decades
Before we say anything else, the two men in the photo have some of the most badass mustaches we have ever seen. And as they aged, they turned into awesome beards. AS for the person claiming they are friends, we are glad to see that they received so many downvotes. These two men’s love is just as beautiful as anyone else. It shouldn’t be classified as just being a friendship to make people comfortable.
Seeing people who have been in love for so long is always a good feeling. We wish the best to both of them. And we hope that the guy in the comments unlearns his ignorance.
No one gets to be the gatekeeper of sexuality. That is not fair to anyone, and it limits the diversity of people’s personal feelings. It’s too bad that another gay woman said this to another gay woman. Let’s hope that the woman making the post knows that she belongs, no matter who she is attracted to. And we hope the other woman is somewhere feeling shame for what she said.
It's tough being yourself. There is always going to be someone trying to tear you down. All you can do is remember who you are. You belong no matter what anyone says.
A “color enthusiast”. That’s a good one. We hope that it catches on and more people start using it during Pride month. To be fair to the volunteer who asked the question, it doesn’t seem like they were trying to be malicious, but it’s still quite funny. Hopefully, that person and the person who made this post have cleared things up and are now good friends. That would make for the perfect story.
We’re going to be using the term “color enthusiast” a lot. It’s almost too perfect not to use. It sounds like something that you would hear about a person with an obsession for painting.
The old “roommate” title. We’ve been waiting for a post like this one. If they aren’t a “friend,” then they are a “sister”. If it isn’t a sister, then they are a “roommate”. We’re not sure how you could see two people hug, kiss, and live with one another and never think that they were anything more than friends. It’s hard to imagine living in this world and thinking that LGBTQ people don’t exist.
These two women look awesome. We don’t know who they are, but anyone brave enough to rock those glasses or a bolo tie is good with us. Hopefully, they had a long and healthy relationship!
Yes, that is definitely his “homie” in the photo. Maybe they are from a state where this is normal, but we’re having a hard time believing that. Now, they may just be a gay couple! We know that is hard for some people to think about, and even harder for people to accept, but that’s the more likely situation here. Either way, we hope they had a great time at their prom.
When it’s two women, they are sisters or roommates. When it’s two men, they are friends or bros. We hope that sooner or later people will wake up and stop this type of thinking.
Once again, we see a post that just flat out doesn’t understand the fact that women can be attracted to one another. To think that just because you have one sex together there isn’t going to be any sort of attraction is close to one of the dumbest things we’ve heard. These women may not be attracted to one another, but to think that it isn’t possible is a very strange thing.
We’re sure the person who put together this group thought they were being so smart when they did this. Little did they know, they just made themselves look so dumb.
While this tweet is funny, her flirting tactic may need a little bit of work. That could be the source of this woman’s problem. And flirting is tough no matter if you are straight or gay. But who knows, maybe one day her tough style of flirting will pay off for her and she will find someone who catches on. Until then, keep going out there and flirting until it works.
We can only imagine how hard flirting must be when you don’t know if someone is straight or not. Good luck to everyone out here trying to find someone they like.
The Girl From High School
Well, hopefully, the young woman that his tweet was about was able to realize that she may be a woman who likes women. Sounds like she asked the class that question so she could get a bit of validation. And we’re sure that the population wouldn’t die out. While there are a lot of women who would go and date women, there are still some out there who like men.
We’d love to see where this woman is now. We have a feeling she did some soul searching and figured out who she was. Let’s hope things are going well for her.
Gal and Pal
It’s still so funny that people can have all the signs right in front of their face that someone is in a relationship and not guess that that’s what’s going on. This person moved 300 miles away, found a new job, and moved into a house with a woman, and her family still thinks they are only friends. Do they need to put a sign in their yard that says they’re lesbians?
It sounds like this woman is on her way to a happy life. We hope she had a good wedding, and we hope that her aunt came around and accepted her niece.
Just in Case
There’s a lot wrong here, and it all stems from the know-it-all doctor saying things that they shouldn’t. Is it even legal to deny a person a treatment that would help ease the pain? Can you discuss someone’s sexual orientation in this way? If you know, then hit us up and tell us. But we just hope that this woman has switched doctors and gotten the treatment that she needed for herself.
Something tells us that this woman is not going to switch to liking men any time soon. That’s not how attraction works. And we also hope that this doctor finds a new job.
You should never act as though you know more about a person than you really do. Assuming that someone is married to a man, just because a lot of women are. Also, even if a woman is married to a man, she is free to choose what she wants to be called when it comes to her own name. Maybe this will be a good wake-up call to this nurse.
This woman seems to have made it out of this situation unscathed. We’re sure that the nurse who was helping her feels silly now. Let’s hope this is the last time it happens.
They are constantly looking for new ways to change the James Bond films. We think that maybe having a woman as Bond would be a good change. Not only that but making her attracted to women would be a huge change. Would people be upset about it? Sure. But that’s their problem. They would get over it. But having a gay woman as one of the biggest characters in history would be nuts.
There would be no denying that LGBTQ people exist if we gave them bigger movie roles. Now that we’ve thought of this idea, we want it to come true. Does anyone have a director’s number?
Yeah, there is more than enough evidence in her writing and from historians that Emily Dickinson was a fan of the ladies. Despite all of that, there are still people who like to say that she was just being creative. What else did she need to do to get it through people’s heads that she likes women? Maybe she should have written it on every first page of her books.
Historians are weird. They like to make us all think that the people of the past couldn’t have possibly been anything other than straight. There’s just no way that that could be true.
Vivianne Miedema is a Dutch soccer player. She plays her club soccer for Arsenal’s women’s side. And when she isn’t destroying defenders on the field and netting some impressive goals, she is shutting down nonsense reporters. We once again see someone assuming that everyone is straight, and just erasing the possibility of anyone being attracted to the same sex. We’re on team Vivanne in this situation! Why was this even asked?
Imagine being cool not just on the field, but off it as well. We were Miedema fans before, but now we’re turning ourselves into superfans. We may have to buy a jersey!
This one must have hurt, but we can’t say that this old man didn’t deserve it. If you are going to talk about your grandson not growing up to be a sissy, and how you are going to make him into a man, then you deserve to get embarrassed. We would have loved to see this man’s face when the woman’s wife came over and sat down next to her.
This is what happens when you jump to conclusions. Also, what a horrible mindset to have. If you are a grandparent, you should want your grandchildren to be whoever they want to be.
While it doesn’t sound like her coworker was hitting on her, the guy’s comment was still kind of rude! And we’re glad that she did the right thing and called him out for it. We’re sure he felt bad after that. It would be nice to know if she went to go and speak with the lady. That would be the perfect ending to this story if you asked us.
Sometimes it’s best to just sit there and not say anything. That will always keep you from embarrassing yourself. We’re sure that this guy wishes that he had done that instead of talking.
This is funny. The guy clearly doesn’t understand everything that’s going on with the couple that he lives with but at least he’s not close-minded. With a little time and a little bit more education, this guy could turn out to be a real good ally of LGBTQ people. We’re sure that the woman who tweeted this got a good laugh out of it. We would love to hear more.
These are the type of people that we need more of in the world. Those who are trying to learn and understand the people around them. There is no more room for bigots!
Each year this complaint manages to come up. For people who are against the LGBTQ community, this is one of their main arguments. It’s a rainbow. We’re sure that God isn’t going to be upset if some of his people borrow it and use it in a different way than was intended. People just love to be upset. If it isn’t the rainbow, then it’s something else. The hate never ends.
We think it’s time for those against the LGBTQ community to come up with some new material. This stuff is getting old and stale. No one is paying attention to it anymore.
This is a good one. Sometimes the only way people can learn is if they get a dose of their own medicine. Having a straight man get hit on by a gay guy would definitely help them to understand what most women go through on a daily basis. They are just trying to get on with their day and then out of nowhere someone comes and starts flirting with them.
Maybe the guys who think like this will learn a thing or two about how they treat others. If no one is looking to flirt, then don’t flirt with them. Just leave them alone.
Whoever this teacher is, we applaud them. If you want to work in a field where you encounter different types of people, and you have a problem with that, then you need to go and find something else to do. Don’t put anyone else at risk because of your prejudices and beliefs. People are allowed to be who they want and that includes LGBTQ people. Maybe this student should find a different major.
It's really nice to see a teacher not sugarcoating things. Doctors work closely with a lot of people from different walks of life. There’s no room for a doctor that may be closed-minded.
