YULIA (JULIA) VOLKOVA How shameless of her to make all her money from exploiting lesbian fetishism in the heterosexual male community while also masquerading as an advocate of equality and proponent of same-sex love within the LGBT community, then to reveal her true homophobic nature so candidly. I can’t say it’s surprising she cannot accept homosexual males, seeing that she can’t even accept her own physical appearance - so much that she had to surgically undergone extensive facial deformation just to be happy with herself. You want to know what a real, flesh and blood villain looks like? This, ladies and gentleman, is the warped and twisted face of a truly ill, duplicitous, and parasitic individual. Many of you want to demonize Gaga nowadays for fighting too vigorously a battle that is not hers to fight in support of LGBT equality? You may take for granted homosexual artists like Adam Lambert, Conchita Wurst, Ricky Martin, Frank Ocean, etc. and straight allies like Madonna, Cher, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, P!nk, and (yes) Lady Gaga. But maybe you should be more thankful for the high profile allies we have and focus your energies instead on eliminating such uneducated and myopic logic as that which came from Yulia (Julia) Volkova’s mouth this week - the war against homophobia is far from over, and we aren’t doing ourselves any favors attacking our allies.
