Liberals Hate Blackface, But Now They Hate ‘Gayface’?
I know it sounds like I’m just making something up, but liberals are up in arms about something that’s just as traumatizing to them as blackface and it’s called “gayface”.
So apparently, they’ve made up this “gayface” idea so that homosexuals can equally be as discriminated against as black people.
You know, I say that, but it’s not usually black people who are getting offended by blackface to begin with, it’s white people being offended on the behalf of black people. Now they’re being offended on the behalf of homosexuals as well.
The reason why this has become a thing is that recently, comedian James Corden portrays a flamboyant gay man in a Netflix film titled, “The Prom”.
According to IndieWire, several critics and entertainment journalists have criticized director Ryan Murphy and Netflix for casting Corden (a straight-white-cis male) in the role of a flamboyant gay man.
“Opinions differ on how acceptable it is for straight actors to play gay roles, but few straight actors could get away with a gay character like this, a role that would feel stereotypical in an ’80s sitcom and here feels offensive,” lamented Newsweek critic Samuel Spencer.
“After all, it is not like we have a shortage of actual gay actors who could give the role more pathos,” Spencer added. “Was Titus Burgess busy? Was Nathan Lane on holiday? Andrew Rannells is even in this movie, so we know he was available, and though he has fun as the out-of-work actor who wants everyone to know he went to Juilliard, this film would have been better had he been given the bigger role.”
Whatever happened to the idea of being thought? What happened to the idea of being a victor rather than being a victim? It’s like it’s a big contest nowadays to see who can be the biggest victim and the most offended as though they’ll get some sort of reward for it.
