I dun geddit. Suddenly everyone on the internet is bisexual or some other junk, but mostly bisexual.

It's mostly because we now have a board to state that we are without noticeable repercussions.

There are homos all around us.

And I'm not talking just FunnyJunk. I'm talking about the internet in general.

I'm not sure how good christian former president Ronald Reagan and Mr. zlamous would feel about this. Something is not right, as usual, but something is most definitely not right.

Besides, the internet has always been for those who are depraved anyway. That's where a lot of internet drama comes from. It's just that suddenly many people on the internet identify as bisexual.

Plus, knowing the general political nature of this website, you wouldn't get lashed at much for being not-straight anyway. Regarding the popularity of the gay board, I guess you guys simply got a place to post your anus and gain compliments for it.

Perhaps it's the sheer anonymity of the internet that allows us to feel more free in stating things about ourselves that we otherwise normally wouldn't. The Web is a large place and you're bound to find a site or forum, no matter how specific or crude, that fits your interests.

Maybe I'm bisexual now, and maybe a few years down the road I'll view it as a passing fad in my life, like Pokémon cards or tricycles, but right now it's how I feel most comfortable in what I've concluded about my inner psyche.

/gay/ obviously isn't for you, so I don't understand why you would muse about it and what purpose it serves to people who are heterosexual like yourself. What people do with their bodyparts on the internet is their business.

Perhaps it's just another change in times and a new way of thinking. Humanity is just moving onward and evolving its ideas.

I kind of fear where humanity might be fifty years from now with today's social developments. Some things aren't too bad, but other things are. At least the technology should be better, and that's predictable, at least.

I've posted on the gay board a couple of times. The first time was to ask why they have more posts than the straight board. They did not receive it well. The second time was posting this satirical image just mocking how special snowflake some non-heterosexuals of the internet can be. It is also a mocking of the "Sexuality Flags" image by "humon," who is, in my opinion, disturbing. It's not to really insult those people, just to show them that they are flawed too.

Let me go on a little rant here that I have feel like going on for a while:
Do you want to know why zlamous is such a successful troll, or why he's even here? He knows what really makes FunnyJunk furious (although nearly anything ever can make this community mad). He sees this community's general opinions in politics and religion by seeing what's popular on the front page. So, if that's what FunnyJunk's community thinks, being an ultra-Conservative, fundamentalist Christian would be bound to make much more than one user angry. Plus, FunnyJunk users, like many other certain internet groups and individuals, have a hard time accepting contrary views, so they just thumb them down to death. If you're not in the hivemind, you're an enormous faggot! Hell, some users get banned by too many thumbs down by leaving an innocent. happy comment with an emoticon in it and they get thumbed into Hell just for that. It's too easy to toy around with the psychology and emotions of a place like this.

I don't see the point of worrying about a future that's half a century from now after learning that our grandparents and their grandparents were worrying about the same thing in their time.

The internet is just a biased, ********* place. Interests and opinions are relative to wherever they're posted (thumb down a decently-worded comment and more red thumbs are bound to follow, same as when it's thumbed up; bandwagon mentality).

I get what you mean by the "special snowflake non-heteros" though. Even as a bisexual I hate all the special treatment other people feel like we should get. It's the same **** as the 1960's Civil Rights Movement. Hell, black people still get special treatment everywhere you go. It's considered a dick move to even have a show without including a token black guy. Now producers are still trying to implement gay characters into their shows, and yet none of them can seem to make them anything but non-stereotypical, sexually-ambiguous, limp-wrist faggots.

I also ******* love that picture. Maybe it's because I had a friend once who was exactly the description of the pansexual girl, and she was pansexual too.

meant to say "stereotypical", not "non-stereotypical"

Yep, the internet is still the internet. A recent change around here and there is how sensitive it has gotten, though. Something Awful is an example of a website infected by this. They're much unlike what they have mocked in the past, but they have just become a bunch of pussies who can't make themselves do it anymore. Aside from that, more recently by browsing anonymous image boards I have learned about "social justice" people who generally hang around tumblr. They're pretty much possibly the only people who are easier to make upset than FunnyJunk. They can get offended at nearly anything that might be a violation of minorities or whatever.

The original topic of this little conversation is the whole bisexual phenomenon, though. I'm just puzzled. You're still cool.
