So in just 24 Hours, my reaction video to "Sexy Spec's" ummm... Dance Challenge has reached over 5,500 views! It was even featured on two gossip websites! I mean its been crazy! Overall, most of the comments have been relating to the comedic aspect of the video, but I have also got some very homophobic comments not only towards Sexy Spec himself, but us as well!
I for one take everything with my funny bone intact cause some of the comments were just ridiculous. All and all, to me it was pure comedy!
But this experience brings up an interesting question. Sexy Spec has already went on the radio to state that he is "not gay, and that the video was just for the ladies." All we can do is take his word for it right?
So then, what makes this video so GAY?
IS IT BECAUSE HE IS A PRETTY RICKY?
There is no doubt about it, Spectacular is a pretty dude! Light skin, braided hair, well groomed. No one can't disagree he is a cutie, but does him being "pretty" make him gay? There are plenty of "pretty" guys that are heterosexual. Wouldn't a women want someone that is attractive?
IS IT BECAUSE HE WAS GRINDING?
Now we all know that there are a million straight dudes that grind on YouTube. I have passed by a couple in my day! What makes what he did any different that any other dude? I mean truth be told, Omarion, Chris Brown and Day26 have grinded on stage before. Spectacular does this kind of dancing on stage all the time for the ladies, why is this any different?
IS IT BECAUSE HE HAD ON RED BRIEFS?
Ok lets tackle the Briefs first. Sure we can argue that boxers are more manly then briefs, but all in all, any men gay or straight can wear any kind of underwear they want! We all have a pair in our drawers. I think women find both underwear sexy, right? So is it the color? Is the color to gay? Is there such thing as a gay color? I mean they weren't rainbow right? And red does symbolize sexiness? If we saw any other man in red briefs would it be a problem? Wouldn't the ladies like a man in some sexy red briefs?
IS IT BECAUSE ITS RECORDING ARTIST ON YOUTUBE?
Would this be an issue if this was any ol' dude on YouTube? Does him dancing in red briefs to sell a record make him gay? We all know how hard it is to promote a musical project in this day in age... was this just a good marketing scheme? Everyone watches videos on YouTube anyway, so if anything shouldn't he be celebrated for being such a genius instead of being called gay?
In conclusion. Let's say Sexy Spec is a heterosexual.
Then doesn't that change the way we think about homosexuality?
Can you imagine a world where Straight Men can be so open and free?
Will we call Omarion, Bow Wow & Trey Songz GAY if they take the challenge?
HAS SPECTACULAR CHANGED
HOW WE VIEW GAY FOREVER?????
