Being a H8r Doesn’t Make You Str8r
June 4, 2012
This video by StraightNotNarrow.ca conveys an important message for guys: Being a hater doesn’t make you straighter. This video attacks the relationship between homophobia and masculinity. Too often men attack each other with words like “gay” or “faggot” for no reason beyond trying to make themselves appear more “manly.”
The silent video shows different women flipping note cards that ultimately tell guys that we don’t need to put other guys down to prove our own heterosexuality and that girls like a man who’s not only comfortable with his sexual orientation but also accepting of members of the LGBTQ community.
