While Twitter has become an important tool for organizing around LGBTQ rights, queer Twitter isn’t always so serious. In fact, the biggest discussion of the week was about a photo of party cups.
The rainbow-colored cups were arranged with little signs corresponding to the guests’ sexual preferences, from “dom top” to “sub/power bottom.”

Reactions were mixed obviously. While some answered the original poster’s question about which cup other users would choose and others responded with funny gifs and jokes, there’s always the downer crowd ready to jump in.

I hope there weren’t too many in one group so the cups for that color ran out. I could see a dom top riled up because he had to take baby blue and write DOM TOP all over it in magic marker and then still prolly get hit on by other tops 😂

but also? LET people drink out of their anal sex position cups… gay cultúre has hankey codes and cruising. Nothing but modernized queer history here https://t.co/U1dbAyUnna

Great fun idea, however its worth noting that there are some "bottoms" who feel shame due to internalised homophobia and they would not choose the colour cup that is their true preference. Just my opinion as a gay man.
