Tila Tequila : Gaybashing For Sale
For most gay people , there are a lot of struggles that go on with the whole process of coming out . Being disowned by family and friends , getting fired , and getting shit-kicked by random people is frequently part of it . Even the most understanding people would rather their kids grow up hetero simply because nobody wants hardships for their kin . And in our male-dominated society , gay women are frequently assaulted for the way they are born . At the very least , a lifetime full of sexist comments like "who "turned" you?" or "you just haven't met the right bloke" will follow .
Tila "Tequila" Nguyen's latest statement just reinforces the crap that a lot of the world believes , that one bad dude is all it takes to "turn" someone gay . Whether her "bisexual" famewhoredom is a cover for her being straight or gay is something that only she knows for herself , but either way , she has managed to further misunderstanding and hatred by stating that orientation is mutable .
She has used her "orientation" as the selling point for a career based on an inaccurate male fantasy . She has sold real gay people down the river for her chance at fame . It's all a big game in the land of the rich and famous where nobody gets hurt for the way they are born and misguided kids are eating it up . People like her and Lady (?) RagRag have used the "bisexual" tag not to further discussion and understanding , as David Bowie did , but to pander to the lowest common denominator to make bank , trivializing the bravery of those before them . Anyone who thinks that either of these twits is a friend of the gay community is sorely mistaken .
With "friends" like these two prostitutes , we don't need skinheads .
