Gatekeeping: when someone takes it upon themselves to decide who does or does not have access or rights to a community or identity:
> "I love punk bands like Green Day!"
> "Ugh, they're not even punk. They totally sold out."
> "Oh man, I love Harry Potter. I am such a geek!"
> "Hardly. Talk to me when you're into theoretical physics."
> "Erika Moen is my favorite queer cartoonist."
> "She's not queer, she married a man!"
> "Quit your gatekeeping. No one died and made you Queen of the Gays!"
This sub is for the cringey enjoyment of observing gatekeepers in the wild.
