QUEERBAITING IS A FORM OF PRIVILEGE
“Straight men playing gay roles strips the opportunity from gay actors to tell stories they have a personal experience with... it doesn’t benefit us, it only erases us.”
I don’t normally post stuff like this but this article finally put into words what I as a gay man have always have been feeling. It really erks me, bothers me, makes me disappointed, etc. seeing straight men taking these roles of gay men and not truly understanding what it is like to be a gay man, especially one of color!
For those who have felt the same way I highly recommend reading this. And for those who are not aware of this issue, please do read this so that you are aware. ♥️🏳️🌈 thank you @intomore
