Just look at that famous portrait of George Washington, and you’ll see some suspiciously rosy cheeks.Related: This is the perfect clapback for the idea that gayness is a ‘choice’Anyway, there’s no word on the mastermind behind this meme, but it appeared on iFunny back in 2019, and it’s been quoted on social media countless times since.In fact, Paul Deasy, the mayor of Flagstaff, Arizona, tweeted a version of the quote in 2021, as he told his populace that the drag-queen story hour at the local library would continue.Drag Queen Story Hour at the Library will continue.

A post shared by Heterosexuality Is Ghetto (@ghetterosexuals)With the new season of Netflix’s Love is Blind hitting, we’re once again confronted with a question that has been floating around the internet for some time now: “Are the straights OK?” That phrase has served as a kind of shorthand for every question we’ve had about the oftentimes fascinating, sometimes cringe-worthy, and maybe even unsettling memes, tweets, and TikTok videos to have ever come out of Straight World™. It’s also the name of a hugely popular subreddit that serves as a repository for some of the most puzzling content out there, as well as queer-made memes that distill all our concerns about what in the world straight people are even getting at. At first glance, the “Are the straights OK?” memes might seem hyperbolic – mean-spirited, even. But look deeper and you might find that these outlandish behaviors might even suggest that, perhaps, a good number of cisgender heterosexual people still carry questionable and sometimes downright harmful perceptions about gender, sexuality, and relationships. Let’s take a deep dive into the rabbit hole of the “Are the straights OK” meme to figure out whether the straights are actually okay – and whether we might not be asking this question enough. RELATED: Texas officials investigate family for “child abuse” just because they have a trans daughterIt doesn’t take a very long time on the subreddit to realize that a lot of cis-hetero memes have an underlying theme of toxic masculinity.
