Is Brunch 'Gay'? Twitter Debates


A Sunday tweet sparked a heated conversation about homophobia and the mimosa-filled meal.

Brunch became a trending topic on Twitter Sunday -- and not due to mimosas.

In a conversation that confronted the implicit homophobia of anti-brunch sentiment, users debated whether straight men were allowed to enjoy brunch. The meal, typically served at restaurants on Sunday, is a portmonteau of breakfast and lunch that many perceive as being beloved by the gay community.

The debate appears to have begun by user @iamfatpapi, who declared, "Brunch is for bitches, men we go grab a drink right quick."

Outrage ensued.

Some users urged brunch haters to confront their own insecurities.

There was an inevitable "bottomless" joke.

And others addressed the hypocrisy of those who believe "brunch is gay."

And then there was the voice of reason.

Enjoy brunch!
