Black Mirror’s San Junipero: A Happily-Ever-After Lesbian Love Story…???

Saye Bennett

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

The 4th episode of the 3rd series of Black Mirror, “San Junipero” (and if you’re unfamiliar with Black Mirror, think Twilight Zone meets the technological age) has been much-ballyhooed as a triumph over the tired, homophobic “Bury Your Gays” trope.

And, in many ways, it indeed seems to be a happy ending. After all, the 2 lead female characters (Warning: Second, and final, spoiler alert!!) ~ after back-and-forth drama ~ do end up in virtual-reality eternity together, complete with a happy end-scene montage to the tune of Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth”.

Homophobia Comes and Keeps Coming

Yesterday I received some disturbing info involving a slew of Twitter-ers who either “retweeted” or “Liked” a STRAIGHT privilege warped sentiment raping/abusing/using National Coming Out Day of all things.

The Tweet blatantly stated that on National Coming Out Day (a homosexual day created by homosexuals for homosexuals, encouraging closeted homosexuals to come out to show our strength in numbers and remove the heavy  heavy burden of life in the closet damaging our interiors) we can willy-nilly eschew homosexuality as it is merely an “identity” we can put on or take off.

The Tweet:

Checking into this further, I am furnishing gays and lesbians with a list of a fraction of the Twitter-ers who shared this sick fucking homophobic and abusive sentiment. Unfortunately many who “retweeted/liked” chose to do so anonymously:

Sicker still, one of the homophobic culprits above is also a child killer!

Not a single person above is gay or lesbian, big shock! I unfortunately was following a few of these homophobes, not anymore! To any gays or lesbians on Twitter, be aware of who you follow/who follows you. Hopefully this will give you a little better heads up of the homophobes who pretend to be “allies”.
