(jolts awake) sex and sexuality are not inherently shameful or inappropriate and to imply as such on any structural level will disproportionately hurt lgbt adults and youth who already live with deep-seated anxieties about whether their sexual experiences are condemnable

(in the fiction of this twitter thread I am now sleeptalking)

I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that a loss of respective online sexual spaces would leave straight men frustrated and annoyed, while leaving lgbt folks literally in danger
