Jessica Geen: My being a straight editor of Pink News has confused and angered some – but it shows how far gay rights have come
I try to keep this Tumblr upbeat and open-hearted but I just found this article from 4 years ago with this straight woman crying about how hard it is being a straight woman editing an LGBT magazine and she is so full of shit.
"I’m straight. There, I said it… Reactions to the discovery of my heterosexuality have ranged from gentle ribbing to disbelief and even occasional anger."
Wow, brave coming out there! Coming out as lesbian, bi or gay can get you physically assaulted, verbally abused, threatened or kicked out by your parents, but that’s nothing compared to the ‘gentle ribbing’ this straight woman faced!
"One gay friend argues that gay people should remember it was predominantly heterosexuals who chose to change laws for the better"
Ah, the old ‘my gay friend’ gambit. Do you also have a black friend who is totally cool with you using the n-word?
