When Lil Nas X kissed a dancer during the BET awards, he received a lot of homophobic backlash. In a tweet he taunted, “Since y’all still doing all this over a kiss imma just f**k the n***a on stage next time.” In the ensuing conversation, gay rapper Kevin Abstract asked the question we’ve all wanted to ask, “Are you a top or a bottom.” Lil Nas simply replied: “Power bottom,” before expanding on exactly what that means. He wrote: “We teach our bottoms to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to bottoms, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you would threaten the top.” This backs up a comment he made to fans in April when asked the same question, saying that, “top and bottom s**t” in the gay community has become “a huge form of misogyny”.
