Another One Bites The Dust: Hollywood Starlet Accused Of Homophobia

on

Hollywood constantly preaches love and tolerance. There’s only one problem, They’re far from “Tolerant”. Hollywood is a cesspool of child molesters and sexual predators. West Hollywood is full of disgusting perverted homosexual perverts that participate in public sex and constantly spread HIV & Aids all to get their rocks off. Want to call me a homophobe? I’m gay, piss off.

Bette Midler has been accused of making a homophobic slur at President Trump, and some members of the Gay community are NOT happy.

However, many people also questioned her use of homophobic rhetoric.

When two people opposed to gay rights are made out to be gay themselves, it brings the onus back onto the LGBTI community.

Making a joke at the expense of gay sex also suggests you see it as something outrageous or deviant. Others say if you use gay sex as a tool to insult another, it suggests the person doesn’t think of queer people as equal.

Twitter responded:

Bette Midler has previously apologized for tweeting transphobia

In 2016, Midler apologized after a transphobic tweet about Caitlyn Jenner.

She posted: ‘Now that I Am Cait has been canceled, will she go back to being Bruce? Will Kris take him back? Do I smell a re-wedding?!’

After outrage, she deleted the tweet.

She claimed it was ‘an idle musing’.

‘I seem to have misread the temper of the times,’ the singer said.

Midler became recognized as a gay icon in the 1970s. She got her start in gay bathhouses, where she became close to gay piano accompanist Barry Manilow.

‘Despite the way things turned out [with the AIDS crisis], I’m still proud of those days [singing at gay bathhouses],’ she said in 1998.

‘I feel like I was at the forefront of the gay liberation movement, and I hope I did my part to help it move forward. So, I kind of wear the label of “Bathhouse Betty” with pride.’
