25 times people called out toxic heteronormative views and practices

Here are some of the most badass internet moments where problematic social issues like sexism and homophobia were called out for what they are. 

Members of the LGBTQ+ community have had to put up with a lot over the years. From being viciously hunted down, attacked, and ostracized to being blamed for pretty much everything under the sun, gay folks continue to be targeted by homophobic heterosexuals even today. Obviously, being on the receiving end of verbal and physical abuse for decades is exhausting and terrifying, so some Reddit users came up with a safe space for LGBTQ+ individuals and allies to vent about some actually problematic social issues like sexism and homophobia.

The "Are the Straights OK?" subreddit, which has 329k members, features some of the most badass internet moments where toxic heteronormative views and practices were called out for what they are.
