Queer Women Have A Message For Straight Women "Turning Gay" For Ruby Rose

As Piper once said, "You can't just turn gay."

Posted on

Seriously, losing it.

So much so, she seemingly has a lot of women questioning their sexuality.

Even gay men are feeling a little confused. Everyone is confused!

Odds are a lot of people are just joking — although it's not outside the realm of possibility that many are actually discovering something about themselves.

But a lot of queer-identifying women are not having it.

Not. Having. It.

On Twitter, many were quick to air their grievances:

saying you "go gay" for ruby rose just reinforces the idea that sexuality is a choice, and is homophobic

I was really into Ruby Rose until straight girls ruined it for me tbh

My whole timeline is filled with straight girls fangirling over ruby rose

RT @urdreamgirI: Straight girls: Ruby Rose is *so* hot!! I'm totally a lesbian now! Gay girls: *stare into the camera like they're on the …

dear straight girls, YOU ARE NOT GAY BC YOU THINK RUBY ROSE IS HOT THAT LEGIT JUST MEANS YOU'RE NOT BLIND

Fellow straight girls: stop saying yr "going gay for ruby rose" you can acknowledge that they're attractive w/o trivializing sexuality ok

One Twitter user summed up her concerns in a perfect series of tweets:

Okay I'm very tired of girls calling themselves gay because they recognise another woman as attractive.

It's okay to be gay, it isn't okay to imply that the only way a person can recognise someone of a similar genders beauty is if they're gay.

Unless you're having a very casual coming out, this needs to stop.

(mic drop)

Ruby Rose is beautiful, I recognise that, but if I wasn't queer the fact that she is amazing looking wouldn't make me queer.

** And for anyone out there actually having a sexual awakening from Ruby Rose (which is totally plausible because look at her face), welcome! **
