seriously though, list of fucking awful trends in the gay male community:
"sassy black woman" voice
talking down to women/harassing them because “it’s ok i’m gay lol”
transphobia towards trans men (ew, vaginas!!!)
misogyny towards cis women (more ew, vaginas!!!!)
"gay is the new black" (says white gay men)
like can we just address
I’m 100% behind most of this, except the last one. “X is the new black” is a reference to fashion, based on the prevalence of black as a go-to clothing color, so the ethnicity of the speaker has exactly nothing to do with it.
Unless the implication is that the speaker is comparing gay rights to the civil rights movement, in which case I’m pretty sure they’d be phrasing it differently.
