This Week in LGBTQ Twitter: Hot takes on Biden’s speech & J.K. Rowling’s new book

This week, folks are of full of hot takes on President Joe Biden’s fiery speech.

Waiting for them to say it’s can’t be “semi-fascism” for the same reason an AR-15 is not a “semi-automatic” assault rifle…

Mrs. Betty Bowers also pointed out some double-standards.

“The #bidenspeech was just divisive, rude name-calling.”

And while some on the right claimed the presence of the military was giving dictator vibes, we can’t help but wonder: Were those go-go dancers or marines?

We don’t make the rules. Or argue with Lizzo.

“everything doesn’t have to be gay” it does actually, but thank you for your input

So let’s just call a gay a gay, shall we?

Stop saying your child is an old soul. Gay. You mean gay.

That said, it’s not all we are. We contain multitudes.

“Why do you make being LGBTQ+ your entire personality???”

We really don’t. We have friends, hobbies, lovers, family, and passions.

If you think being LGBTQ+ is all we are, that’s because it’s the only thing you see when you look at us. I won’t accept culpability for that.

Take Lake Mead, for example. It contains bodies and jokes for days.

what’s something you can say during sex but also about Lake Mead?

Neither funny nor gay? JK Rowling’s latest book.

releasing a bad and cringe book is honestly the best way to dismantle the cultural power of JK Rowling. Her art deflating under the weight of her transphobia is brilliant. Keep up the work Jo x

Not that anyone was surprised.

There is no way JK Rowling picked the name “Robert Galbraith,” the name of an infamous conversion therapist and child torturer, by accident.

— VƎX (@vexwerewolf) August 31, 2022

The irony is thick.

Still can’t get over JK Rowling is actually pretending to be a man to write a book to throws herself a pity party for having shouted hate and abuse at trans women and saying they’re men pretending to be women.

But the haters never seem to learn.

this dude tries so hard to make anti-trans comics but just makes trans stuff look COOL AS FUCK pic.twitter.com/xnuziLxpcN
