Bone Tiddies is a phrase popular on Tumblr used in reference to an image of two fake skeletons laying next to each other and one has bones shaped like breasts to show that the skeletons belonged to a man and a woman. The image and phrase is meant to parody the sensitivity of homophobics who could be offended at the portrayal of a romantic relationship that is not explicitly heterosexual.
The image was first posted to Tumblr sometime in August of 2014 by user daemontool with the caption "straight people are terrifying they can go as far as to give the girl skeleton a pair of bone titties to indicate its a straight relationship." Though the original post has since been deleted, the earliest known reblog of the post was done on August 7th by user pinkglimmers (shown below). It has received over 283,000 notes.
