Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec | In Bed The Kiss | 1892
Um, that isn’t what anyone in this painting is going to text, because these are both girls
I’m just going to reiterate, gay
I don’t know what to tell you they’re totally a hundred percent gay
oh no I’m sorry that’s clearly a man and a woman, I was SO wrong, how could they possibly be gay
I didn’t know much about Toulouse-Lautrec except a vague familiarity with his paintings of lesbian couples, upon further research I guess he spent a lot of time at a brothel and a lot of the sex workers were dating each other. He also had a cane that could secretly carry alcohol.
So, good job being cool Toulouse-Lautrec.
I know I sound like a huge jerk right now but wouldn’t it be weird to take like, The Kiss by Klimt or some other famous straight painting
and add a caption that makes it sound like it’s about 2 guys hooking up? because it’s just not. it’s a guy and a lady. so just…Toulouse-Lautrec’s paintings of people in bed making out with each other are all of WOMEN. W O M E N. okay I’ll stop.
