I used a joke that while listening to the week was homophobic, but the songs from his new song "lost in the fire" are really fucking. In 2019, are we still doing "fuck you straight" and calling the female "phase"? pic.twitter.com/xDH3fnNrZv

Considering how much lesbian sex I've been listening to @theweeknd, I am very disappointed that she is "straight to you" in her new song. It is not just homophobic / bifobic, it is also something that many of us directly threaten with dreadful dudes.
