And maybe if you learn to stop calling people manipulative when they come out, I’ll respect you. Until then, your garbage about being a responsible journalist is exactly that. Garbage.

You are calling a queer person manipulative for daring to come out as a queer person.

That’s horrifying, no matter what your excuse is.

You have a few points to make in your article, and you could have made them without being obnoxious like that. Just like you could have made them without being obnoxious about people who don’t watch Pose.

If you want to be responsible and help people grow, stop being obnoxious. And stop acting like you are the coming-out Gate Keeper. You aren’t.

You don’t get to decide when somebody comes out. Again, none of your business. Absolutely and literally none of your business.
