Britain’s Prince George is the son of likely future monarch Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, and he is pnly 4 years old. However, the fact that he is a preschooler did not stop some reporters in the media from declaring that he is a “gay icon.”
An LGBT news site called Pink News recently published an article about Prince George titled “People Think Prince George Looks Fabulous In This New Photo” where they showed a photo of the very young royal smiling and then proceeded to sexualize him as “gay.”
Wrote the article, “The picture in question shows the prince on board a helicopter, staring at another helicopter in sheer awe. The genuine expression of joy and surprise lights up the child’s face, as he contentedly takes in the view. The image of the prince expressing his happiness in this way led many to declare their support of George for a whole new position: gay icon.”
Liberal Twitter users clearly approved of this depiction of the boy, with one saying, “literally only praying for this world to be saved so lil Prince George can ascend the throne and become the first gay ass King of England.” Another added, “Prince George is definitely going to be gay .”
Thankfully, socially conservative British politician Jim Allister condemned the article and the responses to it, writing, “Sexualising a young child in this fashion is entirely inappropriate. In reality, the photo which prompted the piece shows a four-year-old boy who is smartly dressed and excited about being on a helicopter with his male father and female mother. To take an image of a little boy and to fantasise of him being an icon for a life defined by sex is outrageous and sick.” Do you agree with Allister?
Prince George is already a bigger gay icon to me than Boy George. pic.twitter.com/i1FM0jh4Vv
