Roseanne Barr took to her YouTube channel to share some odd musings on the use of the word ‘fag,’ and how she herself put the ‘Q’ in LGBTQ.
The comedienne began in a pensive mood, complaining about the use of the ‘F’ word.
“Man, the word ‘fag’ is a really hateful word, isn’t it?,” begins the comedian while apparently sitting in her car. “Especially when it’s when it’s like one gay calling another gay guy that? Hoo! Have you ever been in the middle of one of them hate marriages? Hoo! It’s like, wait a minute, we’re not supposed to say that word. How come you’re saying that word? What?”
She then complains that while some members of the LGBTQ community use the word, she as a straight woman is not allowed to use the slur.
“Oh, I just can’t say that word,” she says. “Well, I can when I’m in the house, but I can’t say it outside the house. Okay, I get your rules.”
“But it is a hateful word and we should get rid of it,” she decides, but then clarifies, “Get rid of it being spoken.”
Ok, so folks should stop saying the word but they can write it? No. Paint it on a wall? No.
The 66-year-old then appears to take partial ownership of the slur by declaring she, herself, is ‘queer.’
“All that LGBTQ stuff, let me just be real, I put the Q in the LGBTQ,” announces the dethroned sitcom queen. “Okay, because I am queer as two motherf**kers.”
Now, we’re off in the underbrush on the way to Poughkeepsie, but we gotta see where this goes, right?
“I’m queer, I’m alien, I don’t belong here with all these people,” she adds although it appears she’s alone, but, you know. “They makes no sense. They are very queer.”
“That makes me queer, I guess,” she declares in summation as she starts her car. “But I did put the Q in it. Bye!”
And, exit stage right.
