It’s weird but some of y'all get so offended when others talk about the members not being straight? Do you really think that out of all the idol groups out there, not even one of your “oppas” or “unnies” is queer?
And for those of you who say that their sexualities is none of our business: you are right, we don’t need to know everything about them. But do you know how important it is to know that the people you admire are queer?
Growing up with kpop (like..since 2009) and coming into terms with my sexuality was very….hard. I thought being gay was “disgusting” and I hated myself so much for that. Seeing some idols get absolutely disgusted by kissing someone of the same gender (the shitty ass paper game) and hearing idols change pronouns when making covers (the wonder girls and big bang event waaaaayyy back then) to make sure boys were with girls…it made me think that what I felt towards girls was wrong. After all, all the people I admire were straight and never really addressed lgbt in a positive light.
But wow, when I saw RM’s tweet about that Macklemore song I literally shed tears. I don’t know why I was so emotional but man, I was seeing an idol support me, reassure me that what I am is okay and not a taboo.
It may not be important to some of you but for me, a queer person myself, seeing lgbt themes being mentioned by the idols I admire so much, and the possibility that one of them is like me, it makes me so happy. It makes me feel so secure and that I’m not alone.
And that’s an issue that a lot of lgbt people face. We feel so alone and not “normal” because we only see girls liking boys and boys liking girls.
But BTS mentions us, doesn’t neglect us, and makes us feel included. A lot of songs in Her are gender neutral because “love is not limited to gender, race, etc?” RM legit said that and I couldn’t stop smiling when I found out.
It’s just… I wish I didn’t see so many people dragging other lgbt armys for thinking that maybe, maybe… the boys we love so much are like us. Of course, if you’re homophobic I understand the reasoning but those who aren’t and say that their sexualities are none of our business? Bitch you reblog them sleeping in their rooms and love when you find out personal things about them. The fuck? I guess knowing how their dorm looks like or seeing them sleep is okay but thinking about their sexualities is out of boundaries.
You know, it must be really hard for the lgbt idols too when they see their fans being so adamant that they are straight and get offended if others think their idols are queer. I hope they know that there are queer fans that support them no matter what and are ready to welcome them if they are part of the community. I hope they know.
This will probably offend many people but I wanted to share since it’s my blog lol and maybe other people feel the same way. To the lgbt army: I hope you guys are all happy and don’t get discouraged by the hate from homophobes. It’s always been tough for us but hey, we can get through this.
Btw it’s such a straight thing to sit in each other’s laps on a unicorn floatie and….i won’t go further but yeah the “no homo” attitude that some of yall have is ridiculous.
