Miley Cyrus slammed for “You Don’t Have to Be Gay” statement on Instagram
Miley Cyrus‘s comments during her latest Instagram live are garnering backlash.
On Sunday night, she and new boyfriend Cody Simpson did a joint Instagram live session, during which they discussed their connection to each other.
“Guys, I was being a little too, like…hard core feminist vibes and, just like, I don’t know, not allowing anyone in, but now I am,” Cyrus said. “There are good men out there, guys. Don’t give up. You don’t have to be gay. There are good people with d—ks out there. You just gotta find them. You gotta find a d—k that’s not a d—k, you know what I mean?”
After the session, people began calling out the comment “you don’t have to be gay,” which carried the implication that being gay is a choice.
Some also thought she was throwing shade at ex-husband Liam Hemsworth when she said, “I always thought I had to be gay because I just thought, like, all guys were evil, but it’s not true. There are good people out there that just happen to have d—ks. I’ve only ever met one, but…and he’s on this live.”

Miley, this is so not it. Women don’t “have to be gay” because they “can’t find a good person with a d*ck”.
Don’t use the queer community as a stop-gap because you couldn’t find a boyfriend.
People aren’t queer because they “gave up” on men.
