“Because the whole effing world is a straight community you silly cow”
Katie Hopkins knows a thing or two about causing outrage and one of her recent Tweets caused, its fair to say, a fair amount of backlash from Twitter users.
Katie, who seems to be going a bit of an anti-LGBT bent recently, asked her followers the following question, “Why is there no heterosexual community? Or white community? Do you need to feel like a victim to belong? #transcommunity #lgbtcommunity #blackcommunity”.
Well, Twitter users had a few answers for the former MailOnline columnist, Sun columnist, former LBC Radio presenter, former chat show host, former Celebrity Big Brother participant and former Apprentice candidate.
Because the whole effing world is a straight community you silly cow!

Because those groups have dominated society for centuries. Their place is entrenched. Do you not know anything about history Katie?

I’m a gay Latin male in the UK and can tell you for a certain fact we are 100% not victims of any oppression. If anything people tip toe around us.

That’s not how these communities work Babycakes. They’re not full of victims. They include strong people that protect and speak out for genuine victims of prejudice. In the exact same way you feel you speak out on behalf of people that don’t have a voice. ?

You kind of answered your own question. If you are in a minority group, especially one that is not accepted by the wider community, you’re more likely to make more of your community. And cockwombles like you are part of the reason for this.
