Sexual fluidity and attraction is a hard subject to touch on. This idea is very new in the grand scheme of things. So since it is such a new idea, people don’t really know where to fall with this new idea. There are so many little niches for all different types of people.

I saw many comments saying that Miley was a poor choice for the voice for the LGBTQ
