MLM is abbreviation for (depending on the context) three different terms:
Multi-Level Marketing (basically pyramid schemes)
Men Loving Men (self-explanatory)
Marxism-Leninism-Maoism (synthesis of Maoism and classic MLism)
be sure to watch for context bc these are all obviously VERY different concepts (or else you’ll be pretty f*cking confused)

Male loves male is males who are attracted to other males, example, bisexual, gay, and pansexual men. Trans guys are also included, since they’re in fact men, you imbeciles.
