What’s Pathetic: Waiting Until You Have Millions of YouTube Subscribers Before Coming Out

By  | 

To those YouTubers who have legitimately struggled with themselves and homophobia in order to come out at a time when they thought was appropriate—this post is not for you. You have my respect.

This post is for the cowards who tried to hide who they were, hoping that they might become someone’s supercelebrity. Listen, all of the gay community clocked your tea a LONG time ago. We knew. But your ditsy-ass fan-bases continued to grow as you talked about licking the vagina that you never touched before.

And now, so many YouTubers have the nerve to put out a dramatic ass “I’m Gay” imgres-1video sobbing about your horrible time as a privileged bitch-baby with millions of views per video. You’re sobbing (to your parent on the phone who you knew would accept you) about how you felt so much pain and how you felt like you didn’t belong. Yet there are millions of lives that you could have touched (and saved) if you would have not been an attention-seeking weakling.

If you think I’m overreacting, just look at one of the examples of the damage this shit is causing. On August 16 2015, Huffington Post published an article with a headline: “13 Vloggers Who Perfected The Art Of Coming Out On YouTube.” What the fuck? Coming out is an artform? The struggle, the pain, the fears of me and my LGBT brothers and sisters have been demeaned as if they were some arts and crafts session.

Do some of you YouTubers have a specific number of subscribers (three, maybe four million) that you need to reach before you come out? Read the rest here.

Adrian is a Brooklyn native who has a passion for art and inspiration. He has desired to be an entertainer for as long as he can remember. As a small child he’d bang on pots and pans during family gatherings, hoping that someone would be impressed by his performances. He’d get older to perform in, choreograph for, and organize school shows and cultural showcases. Adrian is also a lover of music. He has been playing the piano since he was five years old and enjoys writing songs in his free time. His music taste is quite eclectic as it ranges from Reggeaton to Kpop to pop to hip-hop. Adrian’s YouTube career has only just begun. On December 11th, 2011 he uploaded his first video and hasn’t looked back. On September 6th, 2013 he started making videos consistently and has so far garnered over 2.7 million views on his channel. Adrian’s video content is diverse in that one upload may be commentary on societal issues while the next day’s video could consist of a high-energy pop culture-based topic immersed in clever wordplay (or “shade”).
