Lesbian Outs Family For Participating In Violent Insurrection

My, my how the tables have turned. To make this even sweeter, 18-year old lesbian, Helena Duke, was kicked out of her home for attending a Black Lives Matter protest. Duke took to Twitter the day after the riot and named her mother, uncle, and aunt as participants of the riot. She did not hesitate. But, as is always the case with a hero’s journey it’s not all good. “I am honestly very disappointed to have to be part of this family that is so… just, very not welcoming or supportive,” she lamented. “I don’t feel safe being part of this family.” Duke told Buzzfeed. You’ve got an army of lesbians that have your back, little sister. And we applaud your bravery.

And who could forget the time she asked, “how do I top lesbians?” To which Tessa Thompson replied, “I’m sure the lesbians can show you.” And now she’s back at it again. In her latest YouTube video, the Captain Marvel star takes several online quizzes about herself. When met with a question asking what her 10-year-old self is doing during recess, she says, “I’d probably be on the computer in the library, searching: ‘How do I know if I’m gay?’” Okay Miss Brie. Of course lesbian Twitter lost their minds over it. Larson has been vocal for more LGB representation in the MCU and made it no secret that she ships her Captain with Thompson’s Valkyrie. But is this really news worthy? Well, we’ll take our crumbs and go. You can watch the full video below.
