LGBTQ Community Isn’t Happy About Straight Women ‘Going Gay’ For Ruby Rose
“OITNB” spoiler alert: At some point during the third season, you will fall in love with Ruby Rose.
Fans of Netflix’s signature prison dramedy have not stopped losing their damn minds since Ruby Rose’s character, Stella Carlin, was introduced to Litchfield prison.
In fact, the Australian actress and model’s addition to the third season of “Orange Is the New Black” was so earth-shattering, straight female fans are now starting to question their sexualities.
But is this newfound sexual reawakening a bad thing?
The LGBTQ community thinks so.
Okay I’m very tired of girls calling themselves gay because they recognise another woman as attractive.

Fellow straight girls: stop saying yr “going gay for ruby rose” you can acknowledge that they’re attractive w/o trivializing sexuality ok

saying you “go gay” for ruby rose just reinforces the idea that sexuality is a choice, and is homophobic

I don’t even dislike Ruby Rose but it’s gotten to the point where my eyes roll into the back of my head every time someone posts about her

Do you think sexuality is flippant and easily swayed? No? Than please stop saying Ruby Rose “turned you gay”

Can people stop saying they’d “turn lesbian” for Ruby Rose. “Turn,” implies that sexuality is a choice. It’s not. STOP BEING SO IGNORANT!!!!

The jury is still out on whether straight women jokingly questioning their sexualities over Ruby Rose crosses a line or if it is just some harmless messing around.
One thing is for certain, though: If straight women really wanna try and switch it up for a little, they’re going to need to find a new lesbian crush.
