Ruby Rose can’t deal with the women who claim she turned them gay

Orange Is The New Black star Ruby Rose has spoken about the many, many women who have claimed she turned them into lesbians.

The actress rose to fame last year when she debuted on the third season of the Netflix prison drama, serving as a “lust object” for main character Piper.

However, the genderfluid star has attracted a lot of attention online, with both gay men and straight women alike routinely joking that the star was making them question their sexuality.

Speaking to Galore Magazine, the actress opened up about the repeated claim.

She said:  “When people say to me that I turned them gay, I just laugh, because that’s not really even a possibility. It sounds like I did something against their will in the middle of the night, as if I crept into their brain and pushed the gay button, then did an evil laugh and left them to fend for themselves—newly gay and alone in the world.

“I break it down like this: Did I find Channing Tatum in Magic Mike to be extremely hot? Yes! Could I now turn straight for him without having previously ever had a desire to be with a man? The answer is, nope.

“But people will say to J. Law, ‘I want to be your best friend’, or to T. Swift, ‘I want to be in your squad’. Everyone has got their little thing, and the catchphrase I got after Orange was ‘She turned me gay’.”

She added: “What makes me laugh is that I’m actually single and not looking at all. I’m just focused on my career. But it was very funny how many people would text photos or slide right into my DMs for months after Orange launched. I would say, ‘That’s cute, but I’m pretty sure you’re straight’. And they’d say, ‘I am, but now I have a crush on you’. And I would respond, ‘I’m pretty sure I met your boyfriend at the première’. But then, if I actually reached out to them to get a coffee as a friend to hang, they wouldn’t ever make plans. I could literally feel them sort of wondering if ‘coffee’ meant something different in the lesbian world.”

She concluded: “I just think that, as human beings, we are drawn to what we can’t have. We are drawn to fantasy over reality, and often are in love with an idea of a situation rather than the reality of it. I think people like the idea of “turning gay for someone,” but it’s not actually that simple. Ultimately, that statement is just a form of endearment or a compliment, but it’s not real.

    But why is she complaining?

    Is it not supposed to be a compliment?

    Babe it’s OK. If u don’t want the fame and hype we can give it to someone else that can handle it.

      Some people are just not comfortable with such kind of ‘fame’ or ‘hype’ as you put it, you can’t really blame she’d want J.Law’s or Taylor’s type compared to hers.

    Lol. Doesn’t that mean she’s doing something good with her character? But I really do not think she turned anyone or can turn anyone into a lesbian or what have you (that’s just ratchet), she merely triggered their curiosity button which goes to show just again, how good an actress she is. Otan.
