Jake Gyllenhaal Goes Gay Again
There’s been a lot of discussion about straight actors playing gayface lately. So it’s interesting to see Jake Gyllenhaal playing gayface all over again. Just last week Logan Paul got raked over the Internet for announcing that he plans to “go gay.” Of course I understand why people are outraged by that, but at least Logan Paul is honest about what he’s doing. He may be obtuse, but there’s no hypocrisy there. Logan Paul is not “going gay” to win awards or to garner praise. In other words, you know where you stand with Logan Paul.

No one ever got slammed for being too old or too young, every one was respected regardless of age, and after the first few minutes you don’t even realize you’re naked. I hate to sound elitist, but it sounds as though some people simply don’t belong in fetish clubs in Berlin.
