Conservatives’ latest “win” over queer folks is entirely in their heads

Homophobes are always trying to bring down LGBTQ+ during Pride Month, and they’ll go to any lengths to do it — including making up their own victories.

In this case, right-wingers are claiming queer folks are super upset about none other than, you guessed it, the Hawk Tuah girl. … You know, the Hawk Tuah girl? You must know her, considering how upset the entire LGBTQ+ community is that she’s “stealing [our] attention during Pride Month,” as one viral post put it.

For the uninitiated, the Hawk Tuah girl (whose real name is Hailey) recently went viral for a comment she made in a person-on-the-street interview for the YouTube channel Tim & Dee TV. When asked, “What’s one move in bed that makes a man go crazy every time?” she replied, “You gotta give him that ‘hawk tuah’ and spit on that thing!” Her now titular “hawk tuah” is meant to sound like spitting, and “that thing” is — well, you can fill in the blanks.

Is she ringing any bells? Have you seen queer people across the internet whining about her taking the spotlight during Pride? If you haven’t, it’s because it isn’t happening, despite a bunch of right-wing accounts claiming that “so many Libs [are] mad about this girl getting spotlight.”

In actuality, most queer folks haven’t heard of her — or if we have, there are literally no hard feelings about it. We’ve got more important things to do, like streaming Chappell Roan, as influencer Matt Bernstein put it.

Beyond the fact that the LGBTQ+ outrage is a complete fabrication, it also doesn’t make any sense. In what world would gay people ever be mad about a funny girl making a sex joke? That’s our bread and butter, baby!

Meanwhile, the original post’s format has become a meme of its own, with queer folks getting mad that our attention is getting stolen by everything from fish to weather phenomena to obscure Star Wars characters. Gay people really can’t have anything, huh?
