Would the modern world exist without the Internet? Probably not. If something happens in the real world and it doesn’t get posted to the Internet, did it really happen? The answer is most likely a resounding “no”. The web controls nearly every aspect of our lives, from how we get around to how we get laid, from talking to our friends and family to learning about the world. Yes, the Internet is calling the shots these days and you don’t want to make it angry. While the Internet might not have a life of its own yet, the web has become one of the most powerful resources mankind has ever discovered.
The LGBTQ community is no stranger to the wild, wonderful worldwide web. In many ways, the Internet has made it easier for people all over the world to communicate and share ideas.
That’s catnip for members of the gay community, in which it’s easy to feel isolated, especially if that person is living in the middle of a rural area. Today, gay people can login online and experience an entire ecosystem of content including gay-themed blogs, social media websites that speak to the gay experience, and, of course, pornography. While the web can’t completely change a person’s lifestyle, it can help some people feel a little less alone. It can also help gay people reach out to other people in the real world, in the form of gay meet-ups, support groups, and online dating.
The Internet can also bring out the worst in humanity. Homophobia is on the rise with millions of angry Twitter and Facebook users attacking gay individuals with hateful comments. Cyber bullying has become the new bullying. Regardless of how you feel about the Internet, it’s here to stay for the foreseeable future. Take a look at everything you need to know about gay news as it relates to all things online.
