Olly Alexander feels sorry for straight guys, says they need marijuana lube in their butt / Queerty
Donston, I can see how you approach the argument, and I actually totally agree with you on the toxic “straight cult” culture that plagues many homosexuals.
But zedus, my argument wasn’t actually to ‘stand up for straight’, my frustration with Troye’s attitude is this new attempt (steadily increasing over the past 5 years or so), overwhelming from the mainstream (i.e. young, “ hip ”) LGBT media deny the validity, reality and value of inherently “ mono ” gender identities by emphasizing that “ sexuality is fluid ” (for everyone, especially lesbians) and ambiguously more liberal and ‘inclusive’.
My feelings really come from the fact that this is something that is really troubling the lesbian community right now, as exclusively lesbian spaces are disappearing in favor of “queer” female spaces, whatever. And the general attitude is that being a lesbian why is ONLY attracted and open to sleeping with women is hopelessly uncool, sort of bigoted / close-minded and sexually conservative.
The point is, I’ve heard similar things to what TS says about my own gender identity (‘relax, try something now, you might like it’, etc.) that I know how much it is frustrating and disparaging. So why should he be able to make such a blanket statement about straight men and their gender identities, just because he’s a ‘proud advocate of LGBT’.
There are people who are 100% heterosexual, and they can stand together without having to sleep with men and put anything in their butt.
