Homophobic Reality TV Stars
Back in the old days when I used to watch reality TV, I remember seeing plenty of homophobic reality stars. Big Brother was always good for some kind of insulting homophobic content, and most of the time they didn’t even know they were doing it. But when I moved on to streaming TV I became totally out of touch with all that. So this is interesting. It’s about 6 recent reality TV stars (most people probably never heard of) who are being called out for making homophobic comments.
This week, Vanderpump Rules cast member and toxic male Jax Taylor came under fire after unleashing a string of homophobic tweets directed at a random stranger on Twitter in a fight over. Adidas’ new line of NHL-inspired apparel.
Here’s a link for more. Some of the apologies are amusing. I like to remain objective about these things, and I only link, but if a gay person tells you that you said something homophobic, the odds are you probably did. Don’t try to gay splain it to them.
First Trans Male Boxer Who Won In Professional Debut
I always see straight people on social media complaining about trans women in sports, and I was curious about trans men in sports. I don’t know much about it, so I did a search and I found this.
Patricio Manuel made history this month by becoming the first transgender male to compete in a professional boxing match in the United States. The fight was sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC), which in recent years has been at the forefront of combat sports regulation in the country.
Here’s the rest. I hope we hear more stories like this.
