Miley Cyrus is taking heat after hinting that going gay is something straight chicks do just because men suck. On Sunday, the pop star said during a lengthy Instagram Live session, "There are good men out there, guys. Don't give up. You don't have to be gay. There are good people with d**ks out there. You just gotta find them." She also claimed, "I always thought I had to be gay because I just thought, like, all guys were evil, but it's not true. There are good people out there that just happen to have d**ks." As one gay fan has since tweeted, "This is not only disappointing, but incredibly insulting and damaging to the queer community. Being gay isn’t a choice (unless you’re Miley, apparently)." Added another, "Don’t use the queer community as a stop-gap because you couldn’t find a boyfriend. People aren’t queer because they 'gave up' on men. This is so insulting."
