There’s a difference between stereotypes and gay culture. Assuming a guy is gay because he has a lisp and walks a certain way is different from assuming a guy is gay because of shared cultural experiences.
shout out to the kids with lisps, stutters, mutism or any other kind of speech issue! i will listen to you no matter how you communicate, or how long it takes you to get your words out!! your opinions deserve to be heard too!!
honestly when I was isolated and closeted and straight people would talk so negatively about gay people who “made it their whole personality” or whatever, it’d make me so anxious and sad. It was always presented like there were
The Good Gays, who were Just Like Everyone Else, and liked straight things, looked Just Like Everyone Else, and didn’t talk about being gay, and definitely didn’t ‘shove it in anyone’s face’ or let it ‘define them.’
and then there were
The Bad Gays, who, from what I could tell, were flamboyant gay men and butch lesbians (f*gs and d*kes), proudly out gay people, gay people who liked rainbows and gay culture, politically active gay people, gay people who talked about being gay all the time, gay people with lisps, gay people who are angry, gay people who don’t “pass” as straight, gay people who love being gay and being around other gay people
And I spent so much time early on internally scolding myself. I thought it was wrong to think & talk about being gay 24/7 and enjoy gay culture and feel safest in LGBT spaces. I would always feel guilty and embarrassed every time I brought up anything gay. I thought maybe after a while I’d ‘get it out of my system’ or something and not feel the need for it to ‘define me’ anymore, but it never went away, that intense connection and joy from LGBT spaces and culture.
But now, look: I have this blog where I can just share every gay thought I have with y’all day after day and no one’s annoyed with me for it. In fact, it’s something that’s appreciated! And I can follow a hundred other blogs by folks doing the same.
I am The Bad Gay and I love Bad Gays. I’m so relieved to have found you all.

spica honestly had more talent in ONE member than a lot of groups have in a whole. not shade, just facts. every member had the vocal chops to go toe to toe with some of the best if they wanted. boa was the vocal coach for INFINITE and recorded demo songs for several groups, including news by nine muses. boa and sihyun were both vocals WITH rapper abilities. bohyung honestly snatched my edges with EVERY damn note. and narae was literally a fresh but power vocal and jiwon slayed every note with her cute af lisp. and this is honestly an example of why the kpop industry and “fans” have placed an expiration date on girl groups due to age. talent doesn’t matter to them. it’s who is cute and young and it NEEDS to stop
