There’s nothing wrong with putting up a picture of a musician. Anyone who jumps to the conclusion that you have a gay crush, or who teases or shuns people perceived as having gay crushes, is doing something wrong. There’s a lot of teasing, competition etc. around grade 7 or so. I didn’t understand a lot of it, didn’t do well in it, but the problem is the people doing the teasing etc.; I was like a pedestrian versus car drivers, I’m not the one creating danger.
i don’t think there’s anything wrong with it either, and I probably would have done it anyway.
The point is that these things have cultural connotations that I didn’t know about, and that I think it’s worth knowing what they are.
Not that anyone has any obligation to *follow* those conventions.
