The ignorance and blatant homophobic remarks from Mirjana, Keith and Denzel during last night’s episode made me sick. I’m still so furious re-watching this now. Who the fuck cares if Matthew kissed Will?
"I just think that’s super gay" / "If you do it once [kiss someone of the same sex] there’s no going back”. UM??? Like are you fucking kidding me? Get these idiots off TV, honestly. The worst part is that in next week’s episode, Mirjana’s ignorant, stupid ass has a full on make-out session with Kari, tongue and all, and all the guys get extremely excited and happy. But that’s okay, right? Two girls making out, and all the guys stare and go crazy and love it. But a man kisses a gay man and you bombard him with accusations that he’s blatantly gay, and then make him explain himself? Fuck this shit.
I have SO much love for Matthew at how he handled what was basically an attack on him for doing something as innocent as kissing another man. The fact that they all gathered around him and interrogated him is honestly sickening and I wish Tyra or someone brought it up in during the judging panel. There is no fucking reason why Matthew should even have to explain himself!
Matthew is a beautiful soul and needs to be protected. I loved the things he said when he was being questioned, like "Kissing Will was not a sexual, passionate thing. It was a ’I respect you as a human being, you’re beautiful, here’s a kiss’." and "They are sitting here saying I could be gay or bi or whatever, which if i was, great. But I’m not, I stand for no labels."
God bless him.
Can we also point out that the kiss was never televised unlike the girls kiss/make out session.
