R&B singer Tank has argued that performing oral sex on other men does not make you gay.

The singer made the claim while appearing on podcast Lip Service to promote new album Elevation.

Host Angela Yee had asked: “Let’s say he sucked a d**k one time… say twice… does that make him gay?”

Tank: ‘The art of being gay is being gay.’

Tank patiently explained: “No, here’s the thing. Twice is excessive, but let’s dig in to it.

“He sucked a dick once and then he’s like, ‘I’m not sure if I liked it or not. Let me try again.’

“And then he says, ‘You know what, it’s not for me, I don’t like the taste!’

“It doesn’t mean he’s gay. It means he sucked d**k twice…  because the art of being gay is being gay.”

People have a lot of opinions, naturally.

The clip has naturally been getting a lot of attention on social media.

One Twitter user wrote: “You’d be surprised how many men actually think like this.

“They equate homosexuality with a certain lifestyle, they believe being flamboyant, wearing meshed tank tops, and moisturising makes them gay not having sexual encounters with other men.”

However, another commenter argued: “Trying gay or lesbian sex does not make you gay or a lesbian. You can try something and decide it’s not for you.

“That does not make you gay or a lesbian or even bi it means the person was bicurious and figured out it wasn’t for them. USE YOUR BRAINS WHAT’S NOT CLICKING.”

They pointed out a “double standard” between genders because it is not considered unusual for straight women to experiment with other women, adding: “Men are shunned for experimenting because of patriarchy and homophobia.”

Out notes that Tank previously performed at a DC Black Pride event in 2017, standing firm as a supporter for LGBT+ equality.
