Twitter is freaking out over how perfectly Kait, a queer teenager, summed up why we all stare at same-sex couples holding hands in public.
any gay couple holding hands in public who caught me staring at you: i'm gay and jealous not homophobic
— Kait (@itzzkait) September 28, 2017
Other Twitter users commented on her sentiment, hoping that same-sex couples know that these stares are ones of appreciation and love, rather than homophobia and disgust.
I need this on a shirt. I stare because I love it and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy to see. I hope I never scared anyone
