Let’s get this straight (no pun intended). You don’t turn gay.
Maybe you fall in love with someone of the same sex. Maybe you’re inherently more attracted to one gender, as opposed to the other. Maybe you’ve always known you like girls. Maybe you refuse to be labelled either way.
But you’re definitely not turned gay because you’ve got a crush on Ruby Rose.
Yes, attractive, sexy, talented, sexy, powerful (did I say sexy?) Ruby Rose (who also happens to be a lesbian) is not your sexuality crisis.
But people are confused:
Ruby's over it.
(Not so much the appalling spelling, more the fact people think she's 'turned them gay')
"When people say to me that I turned them gay, I just laugh, because that’s not really even a possibility," she told Galore Mag. "It sounds like I did something against their will in the middle of the night, as if I crept into their brain and pushed the gay button, then did an evil laugh and left them to fend for themselves—newly gay and alone in the world," she told Galore Mag."
There's no switch, people!
Ups to you if you can appreciate beauty across both genders, or if your attraction isn't bound by a single sex. But a girl crush doesn't make you gay.
Case in point:
"It was very funny how many people would text photos, or slide right into my DMs for months after Orange [is the New Black] launched," Rose said. "I would say, “That’s cute, but I’m pretty sure you’re straight.” And they’d say, “I am, but now I have a crush on you.” But then, if I actually reached out to them to get a coffee as a friend to hang, they wouldn’t ever make plans. I could literally feel them sort of wondering if 'coffee' meant something different in the lesbian world."
"I would be eating breakfast and my phone goes off, and I see a topless photo. And it would always be so out of the blue, and very confusing," Rose continued. "But then I’d be in New York two months later, and I’d get a message from that same person saying, “God, I wish I could see you.” If I responded, “Oh really, I’m actually in NY this week too,” I would get radio silence."
