Hilarious Alternate Version Of 'Mulan' Re-Imagines Captain Li Shang As A Gay Man

We're all familiar with the story of Mulan from the classic '90s Disney movie, but what you probably didn't know is the lesser-known tale of Captain Li Shang questioning his sexuality. Being the '90s and all, people weren't as comfortable talking about different sexual orientations as we are now, but the story is finally coming out of the closet! (sorry.)

All jokes aside, please enjoy this hilarious retold version of Mulan!

15 Memes That Roast Brands When Pride Month Ends

For the past few years, nearly every brand has been quick to incorporate the Pride flag into its logo as soon as June 1st rolls around, and then just as quickly abandon it once we hit July. 

One could probably make the argument that many companies only show their support for Pride because it's good for business and not necessarily because they care about the LGBTQ community, and that's exactly what these memes are making fun of!

Anti-LGBT Emoji Hoax Has Spawned A Ton Of Dank Memes

The internet bore witness to some serious emoji controversy this week over an emoji that doesn't actually exist. Twitter user @mioog tweeted a crossed out pride flag, later claiming that he had found it in Apple's code. The tweet inspired more tweets, some claiming it was an Apple creation, and others making jokes that were pro-LGBT. As can be expected, there were also many, many memes. It was soon revealed on Reddit that the emoji is actually a combination of Unicode characters, and not, in fact, a sinister homophobic emoji of Apple's creation. This comes as a relief, and allows us to enjoy some of the dumb memes that have come out of this internet debacle. I can't wait until this unicode gets expanded to political posts. Oh the chaos that will ensue. But while dreaming about the mayhem a simple computer writing code could cause, check out this dark web-comic that has taken the web by storm, and been made a viral meme overnight.
