ENOUGH OF THE GAY/LESBIAN COMMENTS,
It's in human nature to stereotype people. We judge people base on their skin color, accent, language, personality, nationality, whatever. It's not right, but it's only natural.
But sometimes I feel like... The gay and lesbian comments online are getting out of hand.
Sure, sometimes I see a girl with really short haircut and my first thought is "is she a butch?"
Sometimes we see guys acting really girly and wonder "woah he's damn gay".
But it's a whole new level of offensiveness, when frickin' annoying people keep leaving comments EVERYWHERE, harping on the whole gay/lesbian stereotype.
You know when it's okay to want to find out?
When you are straight, and you want to know if that someone is available.
Other than that, LEAVE THEM ALONE.
Why am I so worked up today?
I had been watching a YouTuber by the name of Joey Graceffa, and out of the few videos I watched, I scroll down and see all the IS HE GAY? and GAY comments.
WHAT DO YOU WANT?!?!
So what if he is? So what if he isn't? Unless you want to date him, SHUT UP.
Why do immature people online think it's okay to target these people? What wrong have they done?
There are YouTube channels out there that I dislike and/or don't agree with. So all you have to do, is NOT WATCH THEM. How hard can that be?
Instead, you waste your miserable life going to EVERY of their videos, to leave the word GAY. Who is the one with a problem here?
Gay, is a status. It's not some insulting label you put on someone.
Do you go around and leave YouTube comments, asking ARE YOU MALE? ARE YOU FEMALE? ARE YOU AMERICAN? AMERICAN. SINGAPOREAN. MALAYSIAN. ATTACHED. SINGLE. MARRIED.
No, right? So what's with the gay and lesbian comments?
Sometimes it hasn't even got anything to do with the video. You watch a video, overlook the content, overlook the effort, and all you got to say is GAY? What are you doing online? You don't deserve access to the cyber world.
A person can pull of a certain role, that's talent. You don't have to say such disrespectful stuff, be it fact or rumor.
Looking through YouTube comments can bring such doubts about humanity sometimes. On a random cat video, people are fighting about religion. On Psy's music video, people are fighting about countries, cultures and beliefs. So many people don't understand that their "just for fun" trolling and annoying persistence can actually crush someone else. And that person didn't even offend YOU.
People are always talking about bullying, but I think comments online brings out the WORST in bullies.
Suddenly it feels like we're going backwards in this society. Traditional media is the way it is, to filter out such biased and extremists spamming. Cyberspace liberated such limits. But sometimes what's best is being limited. So... Is this society improving, or going backwards?
