Cardi B: "White twinks on this app are weird"

Recommended Posts

I'm kind of offended with this tweet. Not so much because she specified "white twink," but more so her use of "twink."

It's very troubling to me that Cardi's usage of "twink" could push it more into the mainstream. It's already heavily used by a lot of straight women on Tik Tok to mask their homophobia by substituting the F slur for it. I don't believe "twink" to be a slur whatsoever, but it's definitely becoming one.

You have to remember: twink is really just a young and skinny gay man. It doesn't automatically mean misogynist, racist, etc. But "twink" over the past year has been given a negative connotation.

Truly, if she had said "white gay" instead, I wouldn't be offended. Because she'd have a point. I'm a white gay myself (shocker!) and I see how the culture is/can be racist and misogynistic. Pride is an event designed for white gays. Gay men are given a lot of leeway when they're misogynistic. People are talking about it now, but it's given them an excuse to be homophobic at the same time.

I think  this is a reflection of the world we live today. Cultural cancellation got the world crazy and I think it’s unfair how some people is allowed to do or say some things depending of the color of their skin. Of course some white thinks are responsible of discrimination, ageism or body shaming, but this is an example of homophobia and hate, coming from someone who used to drug men and stole their money and who also pretend to be afro-american married with a homophobic and misogynistic man.

She is not the better person to talk about some things…
