Okay everyone. Do you see this?
Do you see these two words?
They do not mean the same thing.
Can we all decide to stop using “gay” as a synonym for bisexual, since they’re completely different things? Bisexuality is not the same concept as homosexuality, nor is it a subset of it.
That aside I’m all for bi Spiderman
Okay, not all gays are bisexual, but all bisexuals are gay. Homosexuals are not bisexuals, and bisexuals are not homosexuals, but they are both gay.
Gay means not straight. That is all.
That is genuinely the first time I have ever heard someone define it that way; until now, I have always heard it used to refer to homosexuality as opposed to any other sexuality.* (I’ve also heard contexts in which it refers solely to gay men, but there are plenty of contexts where ‘gay women’ is a thing it makes sense to say, and I think the latter usage has been winning out.)
*And of course in contexts like the image, where it comes off more as though somebody just wasn’t paying attention.
