Toxic Boys

People are Convinced Brad Pitt Came Out of the Closet After New GQ Cover

· Updated on June 29, 2022

Suddenly it’s acceptable for straight men to queerbait—or has it always been?

Such is but one of the questions posed by Brad Pitt’s recent British GQ cover, which has him all dolled up and looking like a freshly-deceased gay elder.

There’s just one problem–well, two, actually. First, Brad Pitt is notoriously straight. And secondly…have we forgotten that he’s an alleged abuser?

As this user smartly pointed out, it’s suddenly becoming A-OK to not only platform but “queerify” toxic men in an effort to bring about an image change. The only problem? Putting a sick button-down and some makeup on a toxic man doesn’t actually change anything. Needless to say, the gays aren’t happy. Has the Harry Styles discourse taught us NOTHING?

Honestly, this user hit the nail on the head:

It’s giving that one straight boy who wants to be gay because it’s suddenly “cool.”

It certainly is a…choice.

Well it’s 9am and I’m officially tired.
