Tumblr is a weird, wonderful website and has absolutely no time for homophobia.
When one user decided to post something particularly closed minded on the blogosphere, we don’t think they were expecting a sexually inclusive “sci-fi dystopian adventure” to emerge from it.
The user wrote: “Being gay is natural? Okay. You have three islands. Divide them into groups of one. The straight island, the gay island, and the lesbian island. The straight island is going to reproduce and keep going strong for millions of generations to come. The gay and lesbian islands will both wipe out in not even one century.”
This is scarily similar to something Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert said ealier this month. The Congressman said during a speech: “If we take four heterosexual couples and put them on an island where they have everything they need to live and exist, and we take four couples of just men put them on an island where they have all they need to survive. Then let’s take four couples of just women and put them on an island, and let’s come back in 100 years and see which one nature favours.”
Tumblr users responded to the offending posts beautifully, crafting a story of an “asexual sky nation,” the esteeemed “pansexual archipelago” and tales from the good folks over at “bisexual bay.”
