Hilarious viral tweet asks for opinions on ‘opposite sex marriage’

An ingenious tweet asking what people think of “opposite sex marriage” in the US has gone viral.

A study published earlier this year showed that no-one is 100 percent straight – and yet, people insist on continuing to hold opposite-sex weddings on a monumental scale.

Mimicking anti-gay activists and people who raise social justice issues like LGBT+ rights simply to inflame tensions, Twitter user Cyndi wrote: “Opposite sex marriage in the United States. What do you think? ” above a photo of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding.

Underneath, she added: “Personally I find it weird.”

One person replied to the tweet, which has attracted more than 51,000 retweets and likes, by writing: “I agree that it is none of my business what they do with themselves but I refuse to be bullied into accepting it.

“Can they stop putting it everywhere? I can barely watch tv without it being shoved in my face.”

Cyndi, a pansexual tweeter whose profile says she lives in Lagos, Nigeria, responded: “Honestly truly, it’s a disease that’s eating up earth,” to which the commenter replied: “What about the children!”

Another user agreed with this point of view, saying: “Exactly, how am I supposed to explain that to my kid when they see a guy and girl kiss??”

It’s a question we’ve all struggled with.

“Signed of the end times,” another person wrote. “See eh. If rapture wants to happen today it’s America it will start.

“Its america that started all the bad things in this world. Somewhere that’s supoosed to be a christian country. Where in the bible do man and woman get married.”

One person pointed out the explicit nature of the tweet, writing: “Twitter needs to stop allowing people to put up offensive posts like this.

“How can a man and a woman be kissing?? How do we protect our kids from this?? The world is turning into something else.

“What is the attraction?” (AderonkeOduko/twitter)

“Opposite sex marriage??!! How does that even make sense? What is the attraction??”

Cyndi apologised, writing: “OMG I’m so sorry, I’ll put a trigger warning next time.”

Another commenter tweeted: “Why is still a thread? Why aren’t you guys reporting this?!

“This is completely wrong there are little teenagers on here as well who minds y’all gonna corrupt.. get this off of Twitter please.”

One person came in with a righteous message, saying: “You should be ashamed of yourself spreading this heterosexual propaganda!

“It is unnatural and sinful for such behaviours to be displayed and forced on our lives. I pray God saves your soul!”

This is far from the first time that straight people have been made fun of in brilliant ways.

In June, a straight white male journalist was dragged after writing an article in The Spectator in which he moaned: “Heterosexuality is marginalised by our liberal arts culture.”

In another passage, he wrote: “Sex is nothing to be ashamed of, even the straight sort.”

Earlier this month, a definitely-not-homophobic man freaked out at the idea his dog could be gay and went viral as people flooded in to pour ridicule on his insecurities.
