In my 27 years of life, I've seen shit like this grow out of control and people, get pushed out of communities, doxxed and lose their goddamn lives over it
But you wanna call it drama, tch
and you wanna say that folks screaming "Fuck Nazi's" and "Punch Nazi's" is fucking conversational?
In the year of our Lord Twenty Nineteen?
Wake the fuck up and get your head out of your ass
My theory on why so many of us queers love the cosmic horror aesthetic so much is basically that we're all very used to feeling like the universe around us is illogical cold uncaring nonsense with made up rules and arcane ancient rituals.
"Why am I not allowed to kiss other girls?"
"Why is that activity something that only boys are allowed to do?"
We get vague answers like "Because that's how it's always beeeen!" and "It simply isn't done!!!", and fuck me if that doesn't sound like you're surrounded by an alien cult with rules that don't line up with actual reality. Only natural we start to see the universe that way.
My favorite thing is how modern cosmic horror/Lovecraft-adjacent fiction is like, all incredibly queer.
Welcome to Night Vale, Fallen London, Archive 81, Madoka Magica, etc...
It seems like you can't ponder the possibility that we are specks among an infinitely larger, cold, uncaring cosmic community, until you get some cute girls to kiss first.
I just find it so hilarious because Lovecraft himself was The Worst Person™ and would have probably passed out at the fact that *we* are his most intimately engaged surviving fanbase.
