These are a pair of onesies. For infants. One reads “i’m just a cupcake looking for my stud muffin” and the other reads “girls dig chubby guys”. Heteros really need to stop trying to force their lifestyle on children.

People are really creepy about pushing heterosexuality on babies in general. Like “oh, he loves to smile at girls, he’s such a flirt” and “What a pretty little girl; your daddy is going to have to beat the boys away with a stick”
Like can you not even wait for your infants to gain control of their neck muscles before you start pushing your sexual preferences on them?

oh my gosh this this this this this
so much
it makes me so uncomfortable

Just remove the “hetero” part and leave the “sexual”/”sexuality” ‘cause that’s the fucking creepy part. Doesn’t matter what orientation precedes it, sexual and child are not two words that should ever need to be used together.

Very true.

No, stop trying to derail this and act like heterosexuality ISN’T the one sexuality that is constantly forced onto children and considered socially acceptable to do so. People say shit like “oh you’re going to have to keep the boys away from her” or “oh he’s such a ladies man” about babies ALL THE DAMN TIME. I have seen cishet adults joke about pairing up presumed-other-sex babies when they were a few days old. If you complain about the notion of presuming a child’s sexuality (even if you phrased it as ANY sexuality), you’re told to get a sense of humour. There are NO social consequences for pushing heterosexuality onto children.
You know what would happen if queer people did that? We’d be accused of child abuse, paedophilia, trying to shove “the gay agenda” down people’s throats, and bad parents/guardians.
One time when I was sixteen, I was sick of listening to my relatives ask my cousin (who was around seven or eight at the time) if lots of boys flirted with her at school. So I asked her if any girls flirted with her. My relatives were disgusted. Absolutely disgusted. “I should HOPE not!” I got filthy looks for the rest of the day. I probably wouldn’t make those comments now I’m older. Partly because “do people flirt with you” is inappropriate small talk for a child, yes, and it probably wasn’t fair to ask that just so I could try to get one over on bigoted relatives. And also because I would rather not have accusations of abuse slung at me for pointing out the hypocrisy of cisheteronormativity!
No, you shouldn’t presume a child’s sexuality or gender until you’ve been told (and then you should fucking listen to them, not dismiss them as too young to understand themselves). But let’s not pretend that cisheteronormativity and hypersexualisation of queer sexualities aren’t pervading social phenomena here. There are VERY different consequences depending on which sexualities you presume.

Guess what time of year it is? That’s right - time to agonise over whether to sign up for yet another fic challenge! But this isn’t just any old big bang (if there is such a thing) - this one is centred on everybody’s favourite archangel-cum-trickster, who would definitely be sniggering right now over the fact that I said cum even though he was around long before Latin was invented and knows perfectly well that cum means with, Gabriel!
So where is Gabriel right now? Did he really die - is he in Purgatory, or does he need to be reconstituted from his various component atoms, possibly with the help of a certain Indian goddess who still has his blood? Or has he been shirking any kind of moral responsibility and hiding out on a beach somewhere all this time, stubbornly not listening to any of the assorted sounds of chaos created by Winchester and angel and Leviathan around the world? Or does Metatron have him trapped after all, because he foolishly believes he can out-trick the Trickster?
Or is he in an AU? Serving pina colada tofu to the cast and crew of SPN over lunch? Pretending to be married to his best friend for plot reasons? Stuck with a motley assortment of characters in a train that’s broken down in the middle of nowhere, with something trying to get in from outside? A demon god or dragon or powerful but lazy sorcerer in a fantasy world, who suddenly finds himself confronted by a fiercely stubborn human knight demanding to know what Gabriel did with his brother? Or did one of them just text the wrong number while drunk, and now they just keep right on texting?
WRITE ALL THE THINGS you know you want to.
Minimum requirements are 15k words for authors and one 500x500px piece of art (or 1-minute fanvid) for artists. Fic drafts are due mid-March and posting starts towards the end of April, so those of you signed up for DCBB or the lovely Sabriel big bang, there shouldn’t be too much of a clash there.
FAQs, rules, and timeline are over here. To sign up as an author, please fill out this form, and this one for artists.
And please - signal boost! Even if you aren’t into Gabriel, or don’t have the time, you might have some followers who do, and we always need lots and lots of lovely artists.
Sign-ups begin: September 14, 2014 Writer sign-ups end: November 23, 2014 First check-in: January 6, 2015 Second check-in/post a snippet: February 1, 2015 Completed drafts and summaries due: March 15, 2015 Art sign-ups end: March 17, 2015 Art claims: March 18, 2015 Art drafts due: April 19, 2015 Posting begins on: April 26, 2015

I somehow thought this was going to be later (bad connection, missed the announcement)
…I’m signing up, aren’t I?

Main thing I hate when reading about nobility in history - everyone has the same names! Stop that! At least the kings/emperors get numbers, but it’s hard to keep track of all the people trying to kill the emperor when half of them have the same name =))
