Vanity Fair Uses Anti-Gay Slur To Describe Glee's Kurt And Blaine

Ughhh. Haven't we all learned this isn't cool???

In a recent online Vanity Fair article, "The Gay Guide to Glee: Season 2, Episode 15, 'Sexy,'" author Brett Berk chose an extremely offensive anti-gay slur to describe two of the show's openly gay characters, Kurt and Blaine.

When discussing their rendition of Neon Trees' Animal, Berk writes:

"Nice singing. But how can having girls in the audience make these cartwheeling, foam-party fags straight-sexy?"

We're very surprised that a magazine such as Vanity Fair would allow their writers to use this kind of language.

We need to make this stop!

    you do know that Brett Berk is gay, right?

    oh and remember when you used that same slur a couple years ago?

    smh…..

    Lighten up, Mario. You're being so gay.

    You did the same thing? Only difference is, you made up a story that someone assaulted you, when they didn't…. And then threw out the slur. Im gay and I've never heard another gay man use the term before. My friends and I don't even think you're really gay. You give us all a bad name you waste of skin

    You only care about gay issues. You promised to stop bullying because of gay suicides yet continued to do so (christina aguilera). You have no place to say shit to vanity fair when u are responsible for gay suicides.



  6. 6

    …said one about two others. Sound familiar? Take it easy, sleezy.



  7. 7

    he is gay himself! therefore it's not really a big deal…



  8. 8

    I think that's disgusting what he said. I'm a straight girl and i love their characters. I doubt he's even seen the show. I hope they fire his ass for that comment. I think it's awesome they have gay characters on the show. I love the show and i think he's dumb and ignorant!!!



  11. 11

    you stupid sinner



  12. 12

    I have absolutely no problem with what he said; Ryan Murphy had a chance to do something brilliant with these characters and instead he blew it by making both of them whiney little 'mos!

    #–I think is very inappropriate to use that word! Whether your gay or straight that word is offensive. It's super sad when a gay person uses it to amuse "the str8's". Like come on! We needa support our gays and not ridicule them. EQUALITY! AND BOTH THOSE GUYS ARE SUPER SEXY WHETHER THEIR MASCULINE OR FEMININE!



  14. 14

    Lmao don't you use that slur quite often?Lololol idiot.



  15. 15

    I read this last week and cringed- while I swear like a sailor, this is one 'f-word' that is not in my vocabulary.

    I assumed the writer got away with it because he's gay himself. Sort of like when rap singers use the 'N-word'. I wrote it off as one of those situations where a member of a certain group is 'allowed' to use a slur because it also applies to them.

    Problem is, this sort of thing just confuses people. Either a word is okay to use or it's not….

    CRY ME A RIVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    As a gay man, this did not offend me, unlike half the things you come out with. You say you don't bully, but you have not let up on certain people you for some reason don't like.

    Re: MercuryBlue – I agree.

    Re: luckyloser611 – Great Job on calling him out on his bullshit!



  23. 23

    Yet another sign that that magazine is not longer the mag it used to be. It's such a rag now.



  24. 24

    muahahaha…..you used the same slur some time ago…use your brain before you write…….you are a shame

    No matter what sexual orientation a journalist has, the used language should never ever be offensive. Don't say that gay people are allowed to have a different converse between themselves, such as African Americans supposedly are allowed to use the N word between themselves. An article is not restricted. It's public. That's why the author should get a disciplinary warning letter or should be fired. An open apology towards the gay community and all readers should be self-evident.



  30. 30

    I thought you used to use that word?



  31. 31

    Lmfao. Thats hilarious. Perez, calm the hell down.



  32. 32

    Shame on Vanity Fair, but, at the same time I can assure you that someone that works for vanity fair.. it's almost impossible to be straight.



  33. 33

    I don't see anything wrong with a gay man using that term. It's the same as a black person using the N-word to describe another black person. He is owning the word. It's the same the word bitch. I don't care if another woman calls me a bitch but as soon as a man calls me a bitch, I am furious. Take ownership of the word and carry on.



  34. 34

    that's disgusting, just like a woman telling misogynist jokes would be.



  35. 35

    Let's try to step back from our impulse to condemn the VF writer outright. It's not bad to have the impulse, but let's stop for second thoughts and think a little outside the box if we can.

    If you take the word in context, the writer obviously did not intend for the term to be taken as demeaning or inflammatory toward gays. Well, if that is the case, I think the proper course for us then is to try to gently warn the writer that a lot of people tend to bristle over this particular term, and it's asking too much of society to demand that everybody, without exception, understand how context affects ostensible intent.

    Wherever people are plainly forewarned that content may contain coarse or abrasive language and adult themes, it's tolerable to use the language in this way because your audience is presumably prepared to try to take otherwise offensive remarks in a more abstract, less personal light. Otherwise, such as in more generally distributed media, a higher level of tact is…advisable.

    so it's okay when you use it, but when anyone else does it's vulgar and offensive ..? maybe if berk comes out and says he's sorry, that he's realized he's a bully and he now vows to stop bullying people (though we all know/see that he really never will) it would be okay with you ..we all know how near and dear that little charade is to your heart ..



  37. 37

    THINK HOW EMBARRASSING IT MUST BE FOR THE FAMILIES OF THOSE GLEE KIDS TO HAVE THEM BEING HOMOS ON TV



  38. 38

    I'm also surprised that this showed up in a Vanity Fair article. Really tasteless. That writer ought to be reprimanded (preferably fired).



  39. 39

    Hey! Why dont you start a blog specifically aimed at demoralising the gay community and demanding special treatment, while still maintaining you're just the same as everyone else. Oh thats right. Its called perezhilton.com.

    Who cares! Everything about GAY this and GAY that…who cares. IF every person were gay like gay people want then the population would stop. I don't CARE what anyone has to say back to me. I have LOVE in my heart but get sick of GAy' this and GAY that…..who cares if someone is speaking how they feel or think! PLUS won't come back to read comments so save your bashing.

    NOTE TO SELENA… DUMP THE GAY BITCH!!! NOT WORTH THE TROUBLE HANGING AROUND THE BOWL CUT GAAAY TROLL. NEXT!!!!

    A word is just a word. You've gotta look at the context.



  44. 44

    They are just WORDS, Mario! Grow up. If someone calls me a bitch, ah well…they can say what they want. If someone calls my friend a N word, ah well, they can say what they want, and God will see to their punishment. But WORDS cannot hurt you. You use offensive, hurtful words ALL THE TIME. Stop calling the kettle black, pot!
