Get your Mulberry barf bags out, boys! Teen Vogue asks: Is a GBF (Gay Best Friend) the New Must-Have Accessory For Teen Girls?
Writes Teen Vogue‘s Lindsay Talbot:
He’s fun, trust-worthy, and supportive, plus you don’t have to compete with him. He’s your gay best friend–and he’s in demand.
This spring, sixteen-year-old Mimi noticed a new trend at her Pacific Palisades, California, high school. The must-have items for her fashionista classmates included a Proenza Schouler tie-dyed top, a shrunken military jacket, neon-bright chunky bracelets, and . . . a gay best friend.
“A few years ago, all the popular, pretty girls were walking hand in hand with a preppy jock,” she says. “Now you’ll see them in hallways with a Mulberry bag on one arm and a Johnny Weir look-alike on the other.” She says one girl at her school even recently tweeted: “OMG, watching Glee makes me wish I had a guy like Kurt in my life.”
Let’s see… if I were an accessory for a teen girl, what would I be? Maybe a tube of lipstick with which she could freshen up before kissing my ass? (Is lipstick considered an accessory? I don’t even f*cking know so I guess I wouldn’t make a very good gay lapdog.)
Do you have a friend with a vagina? Which one of her accessories are you?
