You can give support, not to mention the fact that a blind old woman prophesied your friend’s sexuality to you many years ago.

“I’m gay”.

This is not a competition.

“You’re so lucky you don’t have to donate blood now.”

“You’re so lucky you don’t have to donate blood now.”

In fact, this is deeply unfair to homosexuals who desperately want strangers to have their blood.

“It’s a little daring to do this on Pride Month, isn’t it?”

Everyone is allowed to come to these decisions on their own schedule, even if it suspiciously coincides with an entire month of queer celebrations.

“Hi Gay, I’m dad.”

“Hi Gay, I’m dad.”

Actually, this one is fine. Everyone loves the classics.

“How do you know?”

They got a letter to the Department of Gay Affairs just like everyone else.

– In this outfit?

Not everyone is as brilliant as you.

“I knew as soon as you told me you were gay.

Although this is not the case, there is no need to repeat what they have just told you, since now everyone understands the point.

“Your mom and I still love you.”

“Your mom and I still love you.”

Did you even listen? This day is dedicated to the one they love, not to you.

“Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; let your kingdom come; May Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our sins, as we also forgive those who sin against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”

An unsolicited reading of the Lord’s Prayer can be misinterpreted.

“You still owe me $45.”

They do, but give them a minute.

— Oh, how Ellen!

Comparing a friend or acquaintance to Ellen DeGeneres at one of your most vulnerable moments is the cruelest thing you can do.

“So what’s next for Mr. New Gay?”

“So what’s next for Mr. New Gay?”

Give Mr. New Gay Man a moment’s rest before forcing your plans on him!

“Are you queerbatting me?”

Twitter has taught you the wrong definition of the word.

“But my lord, you must bear an heir, or your hated cousin the duke will inherit your land!”

“But my lord, you must bear an heir, or your hated cousin the duke will inherit your land!”

In this situation, there is already enough pressure not to drag the duke into it.

“It’s been so obvious since I started following you.

Don’t imply that their hidden sexuality was obvious to anyone who peered through their windows through binoculars every night.

“I was about to go out at this very moment and you just stole my thunder.”

“I was about to go out at this very moment and you just stole my thunder.”

Just wait a few days and come another time.

“Would you like to make it official for our organization’s diversity initiative?”

“Would you like to make it official for our organization’s diversity initiative?”

Come on. At the very least, wait a week before swooping in with corporate inquiries.
