Why You Should Stop Appropriating Gay Culture

Why You Should Stop Appropriating Gay Culture


– Hello, I’m Aaron Jackson.
– And I’m Joel Kim Booster. – And today we’re here to speak to you
about a very important issue.
– Gay people. What’s the first thing you think
of when you think of gay people? Culture, gay culture. Yes, thank you bitch. So we are pleading
with our allies, please stop co-opting
gay culture. Words like queen, bitch,
girl, woman, female, little girl, girls, and Cate Blanchett are
off limits to those who do not
share in our struggles and trials. And I know what
you’re asking yourself. What if I am a woman,
or a bitch, or Cate Blanchett? Too fucking bad. I know what
you’re thinking. Didn’t gay men appropriate
language from black women? Yes, this is true,
but black women first
stole it from gay black men who stole
it from a combination of
God and Dolly Parton. – Goodbye Felicia,
I’ve got the receipts.
– Exactly. So stop watching
movies like Carol, Beaches,
Crossroads, Die Hard, The Bourne Identity, The King’s Speech,
Love and Basketball, Castaway, Sully, Big,
Saving Private Ryan– These are our movies. And don’t even think about tuning
into RuPaul’s Drag Race on HGTV. OK, speaking of HGTV,
no more home makeover shows. Mm-mm, no more
clothes makeover shows. No more face
makeover shows. – How are you gonna do it?
– Make it work you bitch. Another thing people are stealing
from gay culture is our food culture. A desire to be thin
stems from gay culture. Dieting is ours,
please stop doing it. Also particular cuisines
are for gay men only. Stop eating cheese. Cheese was
the only food fed to gay people
during the Spanish Inquisition. Do not eat chocolate
or any other dessert. Desserts were a luxury
not afforded to gay people
during the Spanish Inquisition. Bread and water
belong to us alone. Bread and water were forced
down the throats of gay men while they were being
burned at the stake during
the Spanish Inquisition– – Read a book!
– Read a book. You are a bigot if
you look at grape. Ann Coulter once threw
a grape at a gay man. Hello! Also, homophobia, racism, sexism,
ageism, body shaming, transphobia, windows, sands, cloud– These are all
things we started. They’re not all good,
but they’re ours. – Sorry, what?
– What? OK, so that’s
our message. Women, our straight allies,
especially straight white women, please stop co-opting
our culture. It’s ours and it’s
not yours bitches. Yes, so stay the
hell out of it. – Hey guys!
– Oh my God you look so fierce. [overlapping chatting] – [girl] You make me feel so
good about myself.
– Yeah. [dance music] [ding]
