Hilarious Video Perfectly Calls Out Misogyny In The Gay Community

Credit

Misogyny in the gay community has never been a laughing matter... until Michael Henrygot his hands on it.

In his latest video, the wickedly funny comedian tackles gay men who think they can’t be misogynists because they’re gay ― “we’re more feminine than you!” ― and feel completely comfortable (and even entitled) to make comments about women’s bodies and lives because they’ve been “put down, devalued and judged too.”

But as Henry and co-star Maxwell Esposito soon learn ― thanks to some much needed schooling by Carly-Ann Giene and Nicole Dubois ― just because gay men and women might be “sisters” in some ways, in many other ways gay men benefit from privileges that women do not.

“Gay men don’t understand all of what it takes to be a woman and what injustices they may feel or have to go through through out their day,” Henry told HuffPost. “And just because we feel comfortable enough with our femininity and our female friends doesn’t mean we get a free pass to say some inappropriate things.”

Ultimately, Henry hopes that the video might get people to think a little differently. “Maybe they’ll watch this video and think, Wow, I’ve talked like this and it doesn’t look right,” he said.

“We’re gay.  We’re more feminine than you are.”  No, just more effeminate, in your (cluelessly misogynistic asshole) characters' cases.  Learn the distinction.

“Gay men don’t understand all of what it takes to be a woman and what injustices they may feel or have to go through [throughout] their day,” Henry told HuffPost. “And just because we feel comfortable enough with our femininity and our female friends doesn’t mean we get a free pass to say some inappropriate things.”  

  • Amen.  But I would nitpick and say that “gay men don’t understand most (not just ‘all') of what it takes to be a woman and what injustices they may feel or have to go through throughout their day.”  Even aside from the recent revelations about the prevalence of sexual harassment by very prominent men, most of us can’t conceive of the extent of sexual harassment and/or abuse that goes on against women among “ordinary men” every day.  
    • That’s not even counting the widespread sexual discrimination in hiring, promotion, and pay.  
    • And yes, some women do sexually harass men; some lesbians do harass other lesbians and straight women; some gay men do harass other gay men and straight men; and transgender people get it from every direction, even other transgenders.  Unfortunately, lack of fundamental human decency doesn’t seem to be limited to any particular gender, sexual preference, sexual identity, etc.

@JoelR: Thanks for posting this important and insightful reminder!
