Mark Ronson has apologised after facing a backlash over comments he made saying he identifies as “sapiosexual”.
Mark Ronson Clarifies Sapiosexual Comments After LGBTQ Backlash
During an appearance on Good Morning Britain last week, the musician said the term  – which describes someone who is sexually or romantically attracted to intelligence before appearance or gender – could be used to describe himself.After many publications reported Mark’s interview as a “coming out” moment, he faced criticism from many parts of the LGBTQ community, who claimed it delegitimised the struggles and prejudices they regularly face...To be queer means, at its heart, to deviate from the normal. "Smart people turn me on" is not any kind of meaningful deviation. It's a statement of preference, a type, *particularly* in Mark Ronson's apparent reading of it, based on how he talked about it.— Dianna E. Anderson 🏳️‍🌈 (@diannaeanderson) September 22, 2019I just saw an article calling Mark Ronson queer because he's sapiosexualWhat other thinly veiled eugenics kinks are queer now?— Jessie (@JessieIsVeryGay) September 22, 2019I don't want to be a reactionary but I think I draw the line at "comes out as sapiosexual" https://t.co/YnxrmmXzpy— Jeremy Gordon (@jeremypgordon) September 19, 2019anyone praising mark ronson for “coming out”, i just wanna remind you that sapiosexual is not part of the lgbtq+ community. being “attracted to intelligence” doesn’t make you queer. most people find intelligence attractive. 🤦🏻‍♀️— 𝒹𝑒𝓂𝒾 ♡ 298 (@vicesandvirtve) September 21, 2019Being “sapiosexual” is just having a type. It’s not an equality issue. Nobody ever beat you up in school for fancying women that have read Shakespeare. pic.twitter.com/564aTStOUp— Benjamin Butterworth (@benjaminbutter) September 20, 2019Proud to announce that I’m coming out as incredibly annoyed. https://t.co/jwrck0Xvyx— Daniel Summers (@WFKARS) September 19, 2019Mark has now addressed the matter in an interview with Rolling Stone, saying: “I do not consider myself part of any marginalised community, and I apologise if anybody misunderstood or took offence to it.”
He also insisted his comments had been misreported, as he had only responded to a question from the GMB hosts asking if he believed the term described him.
“I didn’t know there was a word for it, but I feel like I identify as sapiosexual,” he said at the time.
Addressing how it was subsequently reported in the media as him “coming out” as such, Mark said: “It sounds like I went on a TV show to be like, ‘Guys, I have some big news!’ And the fact that I would go on and sort of declare myself – like as a heterosexual white male – part of any marginalised community was terrifying to me, or just embarrassing. 
“I thought everybody would watch the interview and realise it’s not what I meant. But that’s not really what happens on Twitter any more.”READ MORE...
