I kinda get it, serves the fantasy of turning a straight guy gay even tho ofc it's just a role. However I still think it's important to predominantly cast actually gay actors for those roles, which doesn't mean no straights should ever play gay roles.

Though I think he's using sexy to mean "cool/trendy" rather than "hot", based on the full quote.

His comment is kinda problematic but the idea of straight actors playing gay roles is not, because they are actors, same as gay actors can play straight roles. An actor can play any role because it's their jobs.

I think we as the gay community need to collectively get over this complex

I think it's fine. Straight actors should be allowed to play gay roles, the same way gay actors should be allowed to be play straight roles. People choose the wrong things to complain about. :celestial5:

I find this more problematic for validating the "straight guy" fantasy. It's just toxic and a bad message to send to LGBTQ youth.

Meh I think it's a much more nuanced conversation than we all make it out to be, but the bigger issue is that we need to see queer roles that have identities and stories beyond their sexuality
