Miley claims “You Don’t Have to be Gay”
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth recently broke up and she moved right onto another Aussie! Let’s all rejoice that we are her type, I was pretty excited until she came out saying “you don’t have to be gay” really Miley?? You’ve had sexual and emotional relationships with females before, why discredit me now? You haven’t even met me.
On Instagram Live, Miley and Cody Simpson had a candid conversation about their relationship and finding each other. She spoke about her previous relationships with women and men stating, “There are good men out there guys, don’t give up. You don’t have to be gay. There are good people with dicks out there, you just gotta find them. You gotta find a dick that’s not a dick, you know what I mean?”
“I always thought that I had to be gay because I just thought all guys were evil, but it’s not true,” she said. “There are good people out there that just happen to have dicks. I’ve only ever met one and he’s on this Live.” The LGBTQ took offence to this as it implies being gay is simply a choice, an option reflected by people, all of which are heterosexual and just waiting for the “right” person. Previously being a huge advocate for the LGBTQ community, Miley immediately came under fire for her words.
While comments ranged in levels of outrage, Twitter user @sunlightkissari worded it best “i can’t even begin to express how disgusted i am by what Miley Cyrus said. that is straight-up harmful and reinforces homophobic beliefs that gay women just “haven’t found the right man” or that can be “converted by dick” go fuck yourself.”
Miley after seeing the backlash took to Twitter herself to explain: “I was talking shit about sucky guys, but let me be clear: YOU don’t CHOOSE your sexuality. You are born as you are. It has always been my priority to protect the LGBTQ community I am a part of. Happy Monday!”
Seems Miley was experimenting and in the process is discrediting others relationships and sexualities as similar to her own. Nothing wrong with stating that personally to another but to come on out IG live and claim that when you have previously advocated for bisexuality rights.., seems like tv where bisexuality is seen as a stage, not a real sexuality, a stage where people uncover if they’re truly gay, or if they’re straight and experimenting.
Sexuality is very fluid from physical attractiveness to one gender and emotional attachment to another, no interest sexually at all, being open to all. But most importantly your current relationship doesn’t define your sexuality. We can all swing.
