What is Love? (White BG) by DarthSuki What is Love? (White BG) by DarthSuki
In efforts to help my school's GSA, I've designed this simple poster in efforts to help offer the simple truth that love will always be love, no matter the sex, gender, identity or orientation of the people in its powerful and passionate grip.

It's also the first poster design in my (Simple as That). series. I hope to create a further few more posters like this to help my school and community become more accepting and understanding of others.

And of course, others are more than free to use this poster in their own schools/communities; I simply ask that they contact me so I know what/where it's being used. I can send the full-sized design to you then.

Black Background Version Here

Inspired by Haddaway's song, "What is Love?"

As long you are adult, 'sane' and not related etc, why not love? regardless of the flavor?

Indeed... and Canada here is not always so much more open than our southern neighboors.

I don't understand why you placed transgender individuals on an image about romantic relationships. It's not that I don't appreciate you attempting to be inclusive, it's just that if somebody is transgender, it literally has zero to do with their sexual preference. It seems really out of place, is what I'm saying.

Oh, I do understand that. I was just trying to include the idea that love doesn't have to come from the sex organs you are born with, as much as the ones you wind up being attractive to (You can be physically male, identify as a female, and fall in love with another male, or vice versa). More or less, it was easier to symbolize it like I did on the poster, than putting up the diverse possibilities you can get with something so fluid as gender identity and such. I completely understand what you mean, however c:

Oh, alright. JUST wanted to make sure you understood what it actually was; there's a lot of people out there who actually think transgenderism is the same kind of thing as being gay; that it's a sexual orientation or something.

Oh, I completely understand, as unfortunately true for some people as it is :U Sexual orientation and sexual identity are two very different subjects.

only thing I don't like about a lot of these pics is that they only show couples. I would love to see some that showed multi-partner relationships (mmf or ffm or ffmm or mmff, etc.)

I can understand what you're getting at with polygamy vs monogamy, but unfortunately I don't think (America at least) is ready to embrace it so quickly just yet. Hopefully in the future of our children and their children, perhaps then it will be as openly accepted as some wish it to be c: I like to think of it as baby steps--the population can only take a few major social movements at a time XD

Very true. I grew up with a lesbian grandmother and her partner, who I also called my grandma. It was never an odd or weird concept to me, I just accepted it and thought it was natural. Of course when i was older and knew what a lesbian was, i still thought it was normal. So I've always been a supporter. You can't choose who you fall in love with. I also point out that homosexuality is actually a genetic mutation, and you are quite literally born that way. so when people say "that's not God's doing" I always laugh and so or really? You say God makes no mistakes, and you are literally made that way since conception, so how is it going against God exactly? He made humans black, white, and all the other races, he made male and female, so why not heterosexual and homosexual? That's my logic behind the religous aspect of it anyway. ^,.,^

That one on the right is like me. My best girl-friend is a tom boy and im girly. So together we balance out. Sometimes i really do feel like the girl in the relationship. Im the one always saying the emotion driven stuff and shes just straight foward.

Asexual love is just like any other couple; the only difference between the two is that those who are Asexual can fall in love, but do not have interest in sex c:

Partnership and Love is generally made by two things, sexual and romantic attraction. You need romantic attraction to be in love, but the sexual part is regarded as an extra bit. Most people have sexual relationships as much as romantic, but those who identify as Asexual simply don't feel the same desire for sex as others do. It's just how we're all built c:

I'm having a hard time understanding your leetspeak, but you're asking about falling in love with a clone? Well, I personally don't know what that would be called, if it even has a name at this point of time with our technology and such XD
