Last night on The Real Housewives of Dallas, fans saw Cary Deuber‘s husband, Mark, get featured as a style expert in Dallas. Of course, some people stereotype that if a man has good style and fashion he must be gay, so Cary took to her Bravo blog to put this ignorant stereotype in check. What did she have to say about it? Read on for details.
Cary Deuber- It Is Ignorant To Say Someone Is Gay Because They Like Style And Art
“When Mark was nominated as a Dallas Culture Map Style Maker, it was a pretty exciting deal!” Cary began with explaining. “Mark’s stylishly European upbringing has been a huge influence on our entire family, and I think it’s amazing (and selfishly convenient for me!).”
“But,” she continued, “I can also already anticipate the nasty remarks; not masculine; not normal? NOT your business! Why do I even have to mention he’s not gay? Are the trolls out there really going to try to sell that as an insult? Let’s shut that down right now. It’s not cool… Change your viewpoint.”
“Listen,” Cary expanded, “it is immeasurably ignorant to say someone is ‘gay’ because they like style or art. We all have plenty of friends WHO HAVE great fashion sense and plenty who don’t. It has nothing to do with sexual preference and is very offensive and small-minded to think that way (let alone spew it directly at people like it even matters).”
Cary wrapped the topic with saying that, “I am so proud of my stylishly savvy husband in everything that he does, and I’m still beaming that he was featured as a style expert in Dallas. At the end of the day, the most important thing here is love. You don’t need even half a brain to figure that one out.”
We applaud Cary not only for confronting this head on, but also for pointing out how foolish and ignorant it is for people to perpetuate this stereotype.
