Kanye West Is a D-Bag, And We Don’t Care About His Sexuality Musings Anymore

There was a time when we cared about Kanye West’s contributions to a dialogue about sexuality. That time is over. Are we going so far as to ban Kanye outright? Not quite. But he’s suddenly a less interesting public figure, and it’s going to take a sex tape with André Leon Talley for us to seriously start caring again.

    why is he wrng on this>??? why should a str8 person apologized for beign secure about his sexuality? I’m gay and secure enough…i can stand with str8s….doesn’t bother me.

    “There’s no such thing as a bisexual guy. If a guy’s bisexual, that means he’s gay.”

    Common straight boy thinking process…typical.

  • Amber

    this is ridiculous. =/ i commend him for not being like “ewwwww”
    but it’s still beyond weird.
    he’s like preaching this school lesson
    that everyone’s already heard.
    except the bisexual comment.
    my best friend is bisexual and he still likes girls.
    he’s like “oh no, a guy can’t like both at the same time! no no no. society would never agree” and the rest sounds scripted.

  • YellowRanger

    I’m proud to say I’ve never cared about Kanye West’s musings on anything.

  • simon

    Thank God this douchebag isn’t on my playlist.

    Of course, with his line of douchebag thinking, bisexual women are hot and everywhere whereas there is no such thing as a bisexual man.

  • Nickadoo

    Mr. West, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I’ve ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response was there anything that could even be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

  • Mike Hipp

    He is a db but that doesn’t mean there are no bisexual men. No I’m not bisexual and never claimed to be but I’ve also lived long enough to never say never. Sexuality is influenced by culture somewhat and current culture values bisexuality even less than it does being.

    If there were no moral turpitude to whatever form of sexuality…. then people would be free to experience their whole range of sexual expression, which includes men who appreciate what men and women have to offer.

  • simon

    The denial of male bisexuals is being led by the very same people who embrace female bisexuals. It’s a bisexual double standard.

    It’s designed to prop up the girl-girl fetishes of sleazy straight guys who don’t give a rat’s about gay rights, and who are actually quite homophobic about expressions of same-sex love that aren’t accommodating of their fetishes.

  • ousslander

    Andre Leon Talley has much better taste!

  • Freeman

    Regardless of Kanye’s douchebaggery, I do appreciate what he has to say about accepting gay people in this interview. It’s nice to have at least one rapper that isn’t blatantly homophobic.

  • bghnow

    @Freeman: Exactly right

  • Troy

    Yes, Kanye behaved like a d-bag, (haven’t we all on occasion) and Beyonce should have won the damned award and what he said is fantastic and we should care. Get a grip Queerty.

  • Greg Theron

    God. I fucking hate him.

  • sebastien

    That’s great to see how gays worship people and then shoot them down straight away at the first incident. Nobody has the right to feel bad, to do stupid things, to drink too much . The gay community seem to be the more balanced, the mre clean on earth. Are you having a laugh or what?

    The guy apologized on TV but noooooooo, that’s not enough for the gay inquisition!

    Izzy or izzynot? Really who cares. He takes your defence on stage and maybe backstage. Since he lost his mother, he’s been screwing up a lot of things. Yes, it might be w hile, but everyone reacts differently. Give the guy a break instead of being 2 face bitches !

    what about redemption? what about tolerance? what about forgiveness?

    Whoever never made stupid things here, drank too much or never made a fool of himself casts the first stone here.

    I’m not a big fan of Kanye ‘s music but I have the balls to stand up for people who have been on my side .

  • Greg Theron

    @sebastien: Just a heads up, I’ve hated Kanye for a while now, :)

  • terrwill

    Can we all take a big breath and wait a sec? Kayne is the first (and I think only) Hip Hop artist to actually condemn the hatred towards gays in that culture. Doing so was a huge risk for him. And lets look at the whole brohaha about the MTV awards. We had a multi milllionaire teen age girl have her award for making a fucking video interupted by another multi millionare. Big fucking deal!! He didn’t rape her, slap her, spit on her, step on her freakin kitten, or any other horrible thing one can imagine. Talking heads are equating what he did to what Chris Brown did to Rhianna!! The one thing Kayane is guilty of is being a publicity whore……..

  • Greg Theron

    @terrwill: I beg to differ, just because one condemns hatred toward gays, doesn’t mean we have to like them. And some of us don’t like him not because of what he did to Taylor Swift, but because of his fake ass ego. He is the worst narcissist on Earth and a disgrace to both the human race and fashion world.

  • Chitown Kev


    Actually, Common has condemned hatred toward gays in hip hop culture too. And he and Kanye are not alone but I can’t think of any other names.

    “Since he lost his mother, he’s been screwing up a lot of things.”


  • Who

    He’s such a bigot and he doesn’t even know it.

  • mallard

    I guess in order for people to hate him less he needs to start beating up women ? Not even Chris Brown had this much contempt thrown at him.

    I do hope his next album fails, he becomes a crack head, and he loses his teeth.

  • Greg Theron

    @mallard: We need more people like you in the world, seriously. I hope Kanye loses his entire career.

  • me

    the guy fucked up. that doesn’t make everything he’s done up to this point ungood. he does seem to be pretty worldly, so i wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss everything he says because of one fuck up. i think there is something to what he says about bisexuals. i don’t know about all bisexuals, but i would say that most aren’t really bisexual at all. this is where these sentiments come from; from close encounters with hordes of people who deep down don’t know who they really are, and who are only forestalling the inevitable because it gives them some kind of subconscious advantage. i also agree with kanye to a degree about the fact that people LOVE to take down those who, whether deliberately or not, appear overconfident, cocky or even arrogant. it doesn’t have to be rationally justified, but the notion of someone else feeling superior is simply unacceptable, no matter what that person has accomplished or what good he has done in the world. now kanye is just a rapper, i realize, but this still applies across the board.
