Todd Chrisley Defends His Daughter, and the Troll Calls Him Gay
I have seen this often lately, especially with a certain politician I won’t mention by name. They have a “gay” name to shame him with, and they want to refer to him as gay…even though he’s never officially come out of the closet.
Here’s why. There are straight people out there, many of whom call themselves our allies, who actually believe they have a right to either out us, tell us we’re gay, or offer their highly unsolicited opinions about our orientations. And they do NOT have the right to do that.
If you are straight (or gay for that matter) you do NOT have the right to out someone just because you think they are gay. It’s none of your GD business, and I don’t care if you’re the most liberal supporter we have. It’s not your job to decide who’s gay and who’s not gay.
Mind. Your. Own. House.
With that said, this recently happened to Todd Chrisley. He was defending his daughter against an Internet troll, and rightly so. And this Internet troll wasn’t just going after Todd’s daughter, she went after him, too, in the most homophobic way.
She also questioned Todd’s sexual orientation, writing, “America sees that your dad is gay. The more he keeps denying it will manifest itself.”
I don’t even like the way they refer to his “sexual orientation” because being gay is NOT about sex. But until we can train people to think differently, that’s going to be around for a while. I prefer to just use words like “orientation.” I’m more irritated by the bold comment from this Internet troll.
