I’m a huge fan of Jonathan Van Ness and I’m glad to see people here have noticed him! Obsessed with Jonathan Van Ness shirt. I agree I don’t think he declares himself to be anything but a man. I would be so disappointed if he did. His beautiful hair messed with my head when I first saw Queer Eye – he looked like a he could be a guitarist from a metal band (I’m thinking of Thin Lizzy’s guitarist who had the most beautiful long hair) but behaved like such a stereotypical gay man. I love how he sometimes dresses completely normcore but will add a pair of high heels.

I don’t love Queer Eye all that much because I read a comment that said it’s like an hour of Hillary voters being nice to Trump supporters, and I can’t unsee that now! But I love Jonathan on Instagram and he has quite an interesting podcast called Obsessed with Jonathan Van Ness shirt that features all kinds of interesting guests. I’m glad he’s sending the message that he’s still a man even if he likes feminine things/wearing feminine clothes, but with the usage of she/her pronouns, I don’t think it’s really okay for us to be like, oh, no, that’s cool, that’s just a drag/gay male thing. It’s still our language as women. It’s still men erasing women, even if the gay variation might seem comparatively benign. Men are no less likely to be misogynists just because they aren’t sexually attracted to us. They demonstrate that all too often.

We need to be more critical of drag & gay male culture. It’s really just women face. Gay men are almost never on our side (with a handful of exceptions. I know you guys are here and appreciate your solidarity). Sometimes it seems like oppressed groups expect other oppressed groups to empathize with their plight the way many women have historically done Obsessed with Jonathan Van Ness shirt, but man you just never see men stepping up to do that. I do agree – but also, I can’t put them on the same level – him calling himself she when just chatting is an appropriation – but it’s not an abusive one (ie. it’s not done in response to blackmail or fear of reprisal) – it’s thoughtless, like someone getting Chinese characters, or Maori pattern tattoos. Mocking women, more like.
