I've noticed a um... recent uptick in some areas where people are writing about gay characters and while they probably don't intend for it, the story and characters end up being extremely offensive.
I'm not one to point fingers. And I'm pretty open to all sorts of interpretations, as I think a lot of people know. Don't care if they're super sexual or not, don't care if they're femme or crazy masculine, don't care about a lot of things.
However. For the love of cheese, please at least try to come at it with some sense of awareness and education. Gay people are just as diverse as any other group. Being gay is not the entire makeup of any character.
I don't get offended easily, but when I see stories where the whole character's identity is literally just being gay, and the cringe tropes of "he's gay so if you're male he's going to hit on you" or "he's gay so let's call him girly 30 times in the same chapter"...
I get a little ticked.
