Fellas, is it gay to read an article written by a man?

There seems to be a tropical new meme every month, and it spurs into existence overnight, and dissipates over the course of a few weeks. The most recent one is “Fellas, is it gay” that puts a stark contrast to our previously established “No homo” societal culture. The origin was a statement by an anime fan: “Fellas, is it gay to like traps?”

Initially, it made sense. Traps are actually effeminate anime males who are perceived to be “cute” women. But since then, it’s turned into an ironic, but humour poke at our intensely homophobic culture using extreme examples.

And it’s absolutely hilarious.

They have such a peculiar logic, that you can’t help but chuckle.

It existed for a long time, according to Twitter’s search engine, but never really took off until traps became popular. This one is from 2009.

But users have asked if certain things were gay way before that. 14 months, back in 2007.

While the newest ones are satirical, the early ones seem to be genuine.

There are some people so isolated and fearful of being gay, that they avoid doing the simplest things like giving your guy friend a hug. Or double text.

You can’t even take a shower without accidentally turning gay.

Memes are the lifeblood of the internet, and once they’ve set their sights on something, there isn’t anything that can hold them back. For clarification, wearing pink does not hurt your masculinity. Neither is taking care of your body and health, skincare, nail-care, etc.

And finally, fellas, is it gay to read a man’s article? Idk, you spent a good few minutes here, sounds hella gay to me.
