True confession: I can’t recall ever eating kale. Maybe somebody slipped some into a salad I’ve had, but I never consciously bought and consumed it. And I have no idea if kale is a big seller at vegetable counters, but I suspect sales are picking up in light of the controversy — such as it is — over a comment by Madonna, who apparently branded it “gay” in some word association game in a BuzzFeed interview.
It would appear some people are taking it seriously, and might actually be offended? But a lot of people think the whole thing is hilarious (including me), and are having fun spoofing the controversy.
So, with “spoof” in mind, I point you to a BuzzFeed article, which briefly presents the backstory and then has great fun with it all:
Personally, I’ve always suspected grapes are gay, but never said anything about it because I didn’t want to out them. But now that Madonna has outed kale, I’m betting a lot of food will be coming out of the pantry.
As for Madonna. I adore her and want to be just like her when I grow up. And everybody knows she is a strong ally of LGBT people, so if she wants to say kale is gay, she can go right ahead and do so. She undoubtedly has some insight on the matter . . .
But, as a bisexual person who feels the “B” is too often overlooked in “LGBT” matters, I’m wondering about bisexual food. Surely there must be some . . . or is the “B” invisible in food groups, too? Hmm . . . I think we bisexuals need to hold a demo outside a supermarket (NOT!).
