Angel Haze And Ireland Baldwin Demand You To Take Them Seriously As A Couple

After months of sexting via Twitter and Instagram, Ireland Baldwin and Angel Haze have tired of your questions surrounding their relationship.  Specifically those that indicate you don’t believe they’re in a “real” relationship – you relationship-deniers, you.  I mean, what more do you want them to do? They’ve done just about everything they can to prove it to you, including publicly inviting you along on their sexytime journeys!  The lovesick, tortured tweets and half-naked photos they post on the reg apparently aren’t enough to convince the world they’re not just “fooling around”, and Angel Haze has had enough of it.

“I don’t know if there’s like some confirm or deny thing with the way relationships work in the media, but everyone just calls us best friends, best friends for life, like we’re just friends hanging out.”

As far as confirming or denying a relationship in the media, these two must not be aware that you can sext suggestive selfies on Twitter all you want, but unless you’re getting photographed together while picking up quinoa and almond milk at Whole Foods – no one is going to take you seriously.  Take note, ladies.  I kid, I kid.  Angel Haze expanded on her frustrations over her relationship with Ireland not being taken seriously:

“An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now. We f**k and friends don’t f**k. I have never f**ked one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn’t happen.  But we do f**k and it’s crazy and that’s weird to say because I think about it in terms of an audience reading it and them thinking, ‘What the hell?’ But it happens.”

I have to admit, I’m kind of left scratching my head a little over this one.  Not because I disagree with her, per say, but because I think she’s missing the mark somewhat.  An interracial gay couple is still a difficult thing for a lot of people in America to digest, to be sure.  Which is incredibly unfortunate – that part I agree with.  But I don’t think that’s the reason the Twitterverse and The Almighty Media aren’t taking them seriously.  I think the fact that they’re that couple constantly shoving your face in their most intimate moments and desperately trying to convince you they’re together is why people aren’t taking them seriously.  But they’re young, and I used to put Sex and the City quotes in the deepest realms of my AIM profile to let the guy I was hooking up with know I thought he was totally a Berger, so what do I know? (Remember how you were, like, soooo deeeeep back then? Like on-another-level-deep.  Sooooo much deeper than your friends.)

Though if you combine their intense PDA (screaming “LOOK AT US LOOK AT US NOW/WE BANG, WE’RE TOTALLY BANGING” makes me skeptical of any relationship, whether you’re famous or not), their youth,  and the fact that Ireland was in a long-term, live-in relationship with Slater Trout not so very long ago (I am leaving the fact that she’s Alec Baldwin‘s daughter and therefore genetically predisposed to attention-seeking behavior out of this one), I think you’ve got a much more believable formula for why they’re having trouble convincing some people they’re in true love.

But who cares what people think! Oh wait, they do.  Along with every other human on earth.  Ugh, we’re all doomed.

    I agree she made some good points, when Michael Sam kissed his boyfriend after getting drafted a lot of people freaked out because his boyfriend is white. With these two maybe people are not taking them seriously because they don’t know who they are. What does Ireland Baldwin do? I just assume she a celebrity’s kid wanting attention on social media, why would take anything about her seriously right now?

    I agree with Gayle – I have no clue who they are, so why should I care?

    On the other hand, even if I knew who they were, why should I care? In fact, why do they care if I care? Being so aggressively public about their relationship leads me to think there’s a reason for it outside of their relationship.

    And personally, I think if someone accepts a gay relationship they’ll accept an interracial gay relationship.

    • Cassandra Hough

      Well-put. I’m automatically cynical of anyone who’s so aggressively public about their affection for each other, no matter who they are. I think that’s the bigger issue behind Twitter users calling them out.

    Here’ the thing: if a straight couple was doing this, the media would not hesitate to call them a couple (whether it was for attention or not). It is heterosexism, plain and simple. And I can understand why Angel Haze got pissed off in that interview- they were erasing her relationship and her identity. Gay couples are constantly mislabeled as friends, even when they are holding hands and hugging and kissing and doing things that couples do. This is especially true for two women. There is some weird thing in the media where everyone is assumed to be straight unless they explicitly say at least 15 times that they are not. And even then, not really. It’s a fear of labeling things, its a fear of things that are different. But being queer isn’t bad. And it is pretty obvious to me that those two girls are queer, so this hesitance to call them such, seems pretty ridiculous and out-dated. Also, you can date a boy and then date a girl (and then even date another boy) and STILL BE QUEER AND IN LOVE WITH ALL OF THEM! Bisexuality and Pansexuality are things, in case you were wondering. But way to go erasing both of their identities.

      Thank you.

      Way to go in being overly dramatic. All I said was she was very recently in a relationship with Slater Trout. Which is a fact. I said absolutely nothing regarding the fact that he had male genitalia and Angel Haze has female genitalia. That’s not what this post was even remotely about.

      I don’t know you, but my identity isn’t reduced to my sexual preference.

    The only thing I care about is them burnt pancakes. Very upsetting.

    It’s like the time when Kim said she and Kayne were the first high profile interracial couple (insert eye roll) and that’s why people didn’t like them (insert bigger eye roll). Nobody was making a big deal about until Angel got all pissy pants about it. For the record, it’s not your relationship I object to. It’s the fact that you felt the need to reduce down to the most basic physical element and to do so in a crude way. Is it really hard to say that you’re in a loving, committed, and sexual relationship?

    • Cassandra Hough

      So happy to hear we’re on the same page. Good call with the Kimye comparison! I forgot about that.

  • emilykwells2188

    I don’t really know who these two are but her crass statements are juvenile and make their supposed relationship seems incredibly fake/for show… Pretty obnoxious if you ask me.

  • Napoleon

    I think they’re deluding a serious issue like Kimye to prove a point.

  • Steve Lenore

    Sick, perverted, and unnatural. That’s what their relationship is.
