The Jameela Jamil situation is exactly why POC and LGBTQ as umbrella identifiers is inadequate when it is time to name the REAL hierarchies and complexities of ID when marginalized people are violent, exploitative and hurtful towards Black LGBTQ people in particular
Not to take away from her journey to queerness, but this statement by Jameela Jamil defending her casting as a judge on a voguing competition show as a then-closeted person with no connection to the ballroom scene really highlights the fallacy of “using one’s privilege for good.”
Jameela Jamil no queriendo salir del armario como bi porque está saliendo con un hombre y le iban a montar el pollo es *exactamente* la causa por la que la gente bi no se siente parte de la comunidad LGTB
Before anyone accuses Katy Perry of taking a role best suited to British Asians, you should know that she is now identifying as Jameela Jamil. https://t.co/6xRsKxMVSk
Si algún día necesitáis un ejemplo clarísimo, sangrante y brutal de bifobia, contadles que a Jameela Jamil la han sacado del armario a patadas cuando no estaba preparada, y una vez fuera le han negado su pertenencia al colectivo LGTB por estar saliendo con un señor. https://t.co/9edfbe8lUj
This is why we always say not to lump Black and POC on some equivalency. Non Black POCs take our space too.
Being queer doesn’t = I can speak for all queer spaces. Cut the crap.
In the 3rd Month of massive protests on the streets of France and in that time @bbc have not reported on it once. But Jameela Jamil announces she is ‘queer’ is front page. Seriously!!?? Is this what I pay my licence fee for?
‘Woke’ actress Jameela Jamil responded to criticism that as a straight woman she shouldn’t be cast in a new LGBT-interest TV show by suddenly announcing that she was “queer.”
“Jameela Jamil has announced she is ‘queer’ after receiving criticism for being cast in a new LGBT-interest show.”
The new way for ordinary people to gain instant privilege is to suddenly identify as “queer” & “non-binary.” It suddenly makes them better. https://t.co/XVlzdthQHX
it's been f*ck jameela jamil ever since she literally SLUT-SHAMED beyoncé at her big age back in 2013. she is a performative "feminist" who's just trying to get a quick check.
I don't know why Jameela Jamil couldn't just identify as a fucking presenter and do her stupid job
LMAO WAIT JAMEELA JAMIL BLOCKED ME AND I DONT EVEN REMEBER DRAGGING HER CORNY ASS KEJDUSJDJSJSJSJDJDJDJEJEJD
Solidarity with my fellow bisexuals everywhere, whose busy day of having an anxiety disorder & failing to sit in chairs properly is being disrupted by the predictable bi erasure in the face of Jameela Jamil coming out. A woman having a male partner doesn't mean she's straight. https://t.co/ATWjgPuQwQ
Representation is so important. We finally have our own Asian Lena Dunham, Jameela Jamil.
not remotely convinced jameela jamil should be heading a show about the ballroom scene and the flattening of all LGBTQ experiences into an unnuanced monolith is ick, but if you think a south asian woman comes out 'just for attention'... why are you like this.
No tengo ni idea de qué ha pasado con Jameela Jamil, pero los comentarios diciendo que tiene novio cuando ella se declara como queer son bifobia de manual. https://t.co/6KGK0PUNjt
Who on earth is Jameela Jamil and why is her announcement that she's 'queer' front page news on the BBC website??
"Lo mantuve en secreto porque tenía miedo del dolor de ser acusada de apoyar a la comunidad por moda, por algo que me causó mucha confusión, miedo y agitación cuando era una niña", dijo la actriz. https://t.co/3mPgvKHUn6

“I’m just so grateful that she’s talking out about her own experience, because it can help lots of her young followers identify their own eating issues that they have.” https://t.co/7PMhahqhj3
The amount of biphobia/queerphobia in Jameela Jamil coming out as queer is completely expected and still infuriating and disapointing. She is queer if she says she's queer. People joking about it is hurting people who worry they aren't 'queer enough' to come out
People saying Jameela Jamil can't be queer because she's in a relationship with a man right now = fucked up, ignorant and uneducated
diving into a very dark jameela jamil investigative hole…
I apologize for anything I said before I realized that Jameela Jamil is not, in fact, hosting a traditional ballroom dancing show in the vein of Dancing with the Stars
