At NYC pride [x]
Except it’s not true whatsoever. Lady Gaga is openly bisexual. So, she does belong in our community, and this guy’s bisexual erasure is fucking awful. Also – if you’re going to dismiss Lady Gaga as a gay icon because you think she’s a “straight white woman” (which is, yet again, false because Lady Gaga is bisexual), Kelly Rowland can be dismissed as well because she’s actually heterosexual.
Not only that, but saying things about how she doesn’t know what it’s like to be bullied because she’s a “white woman” is fucking bullshit. People get bullied all the time for a multitude of reasons, bullying isn’t something that’s exclusive to oppressed groups. Not to mention that women still *ARE* an oppressed group!
And while she may not be a spokesperson in the eyes of this guy, this guy also doesn’t speak for the entire LGBTQ+ community, so he needs to sit down and shut up before acting like his word is law.
White gay males are the largest population in the LGBTQ+ community, they hold the majority – but they don’t get to make the rules. They’re not the only ones oppressed, and they don’t even have it the worst. Try talking to any trans* people, or queer PoCs, or intersex and genderqueer people, or even most bisexual, asexual, or pansexual people. If you want to talk about marginalization and oppression – talk to them. In comparison, gay white males have it easy.
I’m not dismissing the issues that us white gay males deal with, because we still deal with oppression from a multitude of sources, but if we’re going to compare – then white gay males come out ahead in the “most privilege” race.
I’m not saying that there isn’t valid reason for disliking Lady Gaga – but this argument is terrible and doesn’t make a single valid point.
FUCKING THANK YOU GOD BLESS YOU I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO SAY ALL OF THIS UGHGHHHHHHHHHHH I HATE IT EVERY TIME THIS GIFSET COMES ON MY DASH
What annoys me the most about this gifset is the comment that she doesn’t know shit about being bullied.
Uh, first of all, how the hell do you know what she’s been through? And second, you’re technically bullying her right now.
