Did someone say “cancel”?
Three-time NBA All-Star with the Washington Wizards, Gilbert Arenas sat down for an interview with VLAD TV. and started to dive into how people have to watch what they say around certain people, he opened up with a crazy rant about what he sees as a problem with the LGBT community.
“I think it’s the most unfair group walking the planet right now. They have a playbook that only they’re playing by. No one else gets to see this playbook, but we’re being judged by everything that’s in this playbook. But we don’t know it. So, there’s no open dialogue about what is appropriate and what’s not. We only find out after we f— up. That’s unfair. That’s f—ing unfair. You can’t do that. How do I know something’s wrong until you give it to me?”
Just words, phrases. Like he, she, it, they. … How do we know? You’re making it up as we go,” he explained. “There’s not like there’s this f—ing dictionary of updates, and we can sit there, click it and say, ‘All right I can’t say … they took this out. They added this in.’ We’re just learning, right? That’s really unfair that you can cancel somebody on a playbook that only you have.”
“Like having an argument with someone from the LGB … f—ing suicide. Here’s why – they have the whole dictionary to use against you. They can say whatever the f— they want. They can, technically, make a straight man gay by saying, ‘You look like a gay guy, you look like this,’ and call you all kind of gay words which is technically offensive, right? To a straight man. As soon as I say something back that’s gay, I’m f—ing canceled. How does that f—ing work?
Even us talking about it makes us feel uncomfortable because we know there’s gonna f—ing be backlash, but it’s true. You can use whatever vocabulary against me. I get to go back, now it becomes, you get to use, ‘LGB, can’t do that..”FOX NEWS
Well Arenas if you weren’t cancelled you are now.
I tell you there is nothing more heartwarming than one minority who has experienced hate and discrimination lifting up another.
