TikToker Likens Russia-Ukraine to Sub-Dom Relationship, Chaos Ensues

TikToker Likens Russia-Ukraine to Sub-Dom Relationship, Chaos Ensues

No, we don't need to call the Ukraine a submissive bottom.

Lots of things need a little gay culture sprinkled in. Movie reboots, fashion, TV shows, uncomfortable Thanksgiving dinners with the homophobic fam…but at least one thing absolutely does not need a queer twist to make it palatable for those of us drudging through heteronormative society — the war on Ukraine.

A video currently making the rounds on social media isn’t sitting well with people after TikToker Brennen Scott Cooper opted to try to explain the Russia-Ukraine conflict in terms that he felt gays could understand. And it may be the most cringeworthy thing you’ve seen so far this year.

“Ukraine is a submissive bottom. Russia is a dom top,” he began, and that’s really all you need to know about this video.

Unfortunately, Cooper didn’t stop there, going on to explain his view of Russia’s attack on Ukraine with references to Mean Girls and treating Vladimir Putin like a jealous ex trying to force his lover to give things another go.

It’s hard to believe this is a real video someone willingly put on the internet, rather than a purposely over-the-top storyline on The Other Two mocking Instagays, but here we are. Is this what happens when we embrace queer culture? Are we proving One Million Moms right? Must we be stopped?

Cooper appears to have taken the video down from TikTok, so at least there’s that, but after the video was re-uploaded to Twitter by another user, people are left trying to figure out how to even react.

So, at what point do we simply burn the internet to the ground?
