Twitter Trying To Figure Out What Gay Culture Is Just Became A New Meme Because Obviously

If anyone were to ask me what my favorite culture is, I'd probably say it was gay culture. Well, if I had a clear idea of what gay culture even entails, that is. And the tweets about what gay culture is that I'm about to show you prove we're all still trying to figure out the same thing.

Seriously, if I had a dollar for every time I heard people not part of the LGBTQ+ community throw around the terms "gay culture" or "gay agenda," I wouldn't still be eating Easy Mac for dinner as a full-fledged adult. The only gay agenda I know is the agenda I had in high school in which I repeatedly wrote the names of all the girls I liked in different fonts. Regardless, the quest is still ongoing for the LGBTQ+ community ourselves to figure out exactly what gay culture is. And clearly, we have a pretty great start, since it's already turned into a goddamn meme.

I'm telling you, with last week's news that Pennywise from It is apparently dating the Babadook — two unexpected gay icons coming together to create the ultimate Gay Horror Coalition (which I just made up, you're welcome) — and now, with this new "gay culture" meme making everyone piss themselves laughing and saying "same," the LGBTQ+ community is having a big moment on the internet (which should happen all the time because we're cute, funny, and photogenic as F*CK).

Now, read along and laugh as we all hilariously try to figure out what gay culture is. (Hint: Whatever it is, it's funny and relatable AF, and I'm totally OK with being included in this narrative.)

Tell me to "cheer up" one more f*cking time, Deborah.

Fingers crossed for you.

Anything that doesn't immediately benefit me? THAT THING IS MESSED UP.

Women are everything. I don't make the rules. Goodbye.


I don't know if I want to lick that highlighter off your face or ask you where you got it. OOPS.

Ken dolls are overrated anyway??? Barbie and her girlfriend Christie are much happier???

Surprise, mom, I'm actually never getting a boyfriend.

WOW! Where do I sign up for this???

How does no one ever get the memo that, when I say, "Leave me alone," what I actually mean is "Leave me alone for five minutes and then give me the attention I truly deserve, which is all of it."

It's not my fault I'm the ugliest hot queer around.

Godney Spears is my lord and savior. Everything and everyone else is irrelevant.

Gay culture is 100 percent all of my favorite female celebrities dating each other and NOT ME.

Double Gay Culture™ is doing the choreography to "Bad Romance" whenever and wherever it comes on.

Excuse me, my talent is existing, and TBH, I'm not doing THAT great of a job at it sometimes, but I'm still doing it.

Guilty as charged.

If I change the pronouns in a song, I change the meaning. I am not about to completely disregard an artist's expression like A MONSTER. Nope. No way. Can't do it.

"Home of sexual" same.

It is I, the Glitter Queer, coming to steal your glitter and not pay for any of it.

Gay culture is also downloading The Sims 2, 3, and 4, so you have quadruple the gay Sims.

I can't believe "rawr means 'I love you' in dinosaur" is actually gay code. This is the only explanation. There are no other logical ones.

As much as I hate to say it, though, Twitter user @BABEBAPHOMET spilled all the tea here. There is no tea left to spill.

Are we any closer to knowing what gay culture TRULY is? How the hell am I supposed to know? But maybe we should write all of these down in our gay agendas to create the ultimate Gay Gospel. IDK. Just a thought. Don't @ me.
