This week read about Cardi B being accused of queerbaiting again, "Loki" continuing to become more LGBT-inclusive, and TSA possibly targeting gays.
Cardi B Accused of Queerbaiting Again
Cardi B has gotten a lot of backlash and was accused of queerbaiting.
Cardi stands her ground to the accusations and makes her point clear.
“Uuummmm @RollingStone queer baiting? You do know we was trying to hide a whole baby bump right? ... Also I’m married to a man but I have express so much about my bisexuality and my experiences wit girls. All of a sudden 'queer baiting' is the new word & people use it to the ground!" according to PRIDE.
This isn't the only time Cardi has been called out for queerbaiting. PRIDE says that back in 2018, it was her track called “GIRLS” that brought this to the fans’ attention.
Cardi also mentioned her feelings about the “queerbaiting” movement on her Twitter.
“I don’t like this new ‘queer baiting’ word. I feel like it pressure artist to talk about their sexuality or their experiences that they don’t feel comfortable speaking about. If a artist kiss a girl on a video does that means she gotta show videos & text wit wit other women,” Cardi tweeted.
Who will be the next artist to be accused of queerbaiting, we’ll just have to wait and find out.
Bisexual Aliens in ‘Loki’

Fans of the already popular Disney+ series “Loki” have done a deep dive to uncover one of the unused plotlines. Apparently number five on the list was about bisexual aliens having sex.
It was a super-fast catch, but hardcore fans of the series put their investigative skills to the test, by revealing an unused plotline.
According to PRIDE, a shot from the Assembled episode features head writer Michael Waldron standing in front of a whiteboard with a numbered list that caught some eagle-eyed fans' attention. The list depicts a montage that didn’t make it into the show … In the montage, Loki would be “visiting different time periods” and “doing crazy mischief, aka sex,” then pivot to “taking power” and “collecting the Infinity Stones.”
As if “Loki” wasn't already making history by having its main character be genderfluid, they keep giving the LGBT community more reasons to fall in love with the show.
Is TSA Targeting Gays?!

An Instagram post from the TSA has made everyone cringe.
The post shows four wigs of around the same color, in a bin with bobby pins posted up in them, with a caption that reads:
“We heard you walked purse first through one of our security checkpoints. No tea, no shade, and we sure hope you had a pleasant experience, but when it comes to security we do what needs to be done to keep you safe. At times our officers may ask passengers to undergo additional screening, such as letting a wig out the bag to be run separately. This could be to resolve an alarm or as part of other security measures. Now, Shante, you can stay. Thanks for your patience, hilarity, talent, and humility. Keep racking up them frequent flyer miles.”
They even tagged “Bob the Queen” season eight winner of “Drag Race” where she was tweeting about her stressful experience with TSA.
“Bob the Queens” tweeted back in response in a thread.
