Beautiful people can get away with a lot, and if anyone has proven that over the past year, it’s Megan Fox. It seems that every week now, Fox says something so offensive, ignorant or — dare I say — stupid, it’s hard to believe she hasn’t faced any major backlash yet.
Well, let this be a call for that backlash to begin: I am so over you, Megan Fox.
While Fox openly calls herself bisexual, that doesn’t stop her from spreading her bi-phobic views (because that’s really the support we need right now) and, in the July issue of British GQ., letting the lesbian stereotypes fly:
“Really my only job is to look attractive,” Fox told the magazine. “I was so angry about that, that I went in the opposite direction. I turned into a really butch bull dyke for, like, six months … Then I went in the other direction. From being a giant motorcycle-riding lesbian, I turned into a zombie. I lost, like, 30 pounds.”
Do I even need to comment further on that statement? What is wrong with you, Megan Fox? Where do you come from?
This gem of a quote comes just weeks after her brilliant interview with Esquire, where she shared her thoughts on bisexuality, which Dorothy Snarker discussed previously:
“I think people are born bisexual and then make subconscious choices based on the pressures of society. I have no question in my mind about being bisexual. But I’m also a hypocrite: I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I’d never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man.”
While readers vigorously debated Fox’s statement in Snarker’s post, I cannot believe someone who allegedly supports the gay community would say something so stupid! It’s tragic that in a post-Prop 8 America, where Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell doesn’t seem to be going anywhere and where marriage rights refused to queer citizens, someone would openly bash a part of the community they allegedly belong to. Bi-bashing has gotten old, and as much as Fox disdains intellectuals — she should know better.
The GQ comment is one of many Fox has made that has be thinking about what Beth Ditto recently said regarding Katy Perry:
I hate Katy Perry! She’s offensive to gay culture, I’m so offended. She’s just riding on the backs of our culture, without having to pay any of the dues and not being actually lesbian or anything at all.
I would like to forward this statement to Megan Fox: We giant motorcycle-riding lesbians don’t need you.
And while you don’t seem to think you are “a retard” (just another example of Fox using that noggin of hers before talking to a major publication) we think you should read a newspaper once in awhile, or at least the magazines you are quoted in. Then maybe you will see how you really sound.
Sure, she’s kind of hot, but I voted for Portia de Rossi over her in the Hot 100 for many reasons. Being hot only gets you so far.
