As far as sexy gay lesbians go, Ruby Rose is basically the fucking top of the line. She’s the kind of hot lesbian that makes the straightest of girls a little bi-curious, and the gayest of girls weary because you KNOW she’s the female version of a fuck boy.
Ruby is super openly gay and it was recently announced that she was going to be playing Batwoman on the CW and that Batwoman would also be openly gay, which is really cool, right? Minus the fact that apparently many people on Twitter are pissed about the casting. Oh no, people aren’t pissed about a lesbian superhero. People are pissed because they think Ruby isn’t gay ENOUGH to be a lesbian superhero. Insert eye roll gif.
After the casting announcement, I was pumped. First the CW is giving us tv’s first trans superhero and now they’re giving us the first gay superhero AND they’re actually casting trans and gay women to play these roles? COOL.
But then Twitter kind of blew up because people didn’t approve of Ruby Rose being cast because either she “isn’t really gay” or she “isn’t gay enough.” If you’re reading this and you’re rolling your eyes with confusion, I’m with you.
Ruby was so over this nonsense on Twitter that she’s actually decided to quit Twitter for a little bit, and posted the following before taking off:
Where on Earth did ‘Ruby is not a lesbian therefore she can’t be Batwoman’ come from–has to be the funniest most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read. I came out at 12? And have for the past 5 years had to deal with ‘she’s too gay’. how you y’all flip it like that? I didn’t change. I wish we would all support each other and our journeys. Taking a break from Twitter to focus all my energy on my next 2 projects. If you need me, I’ll be on my Bat Phone.
I’m also not really aware of where the whole “not gay” thing came from. Like, do people realize that Ellen doesn’t get to be the only lesbian in Hollywood? The only issue I have with Ruby Rose is that she’s an avid Taylor Swift supporter, which makes me suspicious of her, but I fully trust her lesbianess. Damn, the interest really needs to chill out.
