I recently made a beautiful discovery through my male, straight roommate (believe me, those two distinctions go hand in hand). We showed me this video:
This was the first conversation that we had about her:
Me: Aaaah! So cute! Ashly’s so cute! She has to be gay!
Roommate: Noooooo! No way she’s gay! I haven’t been getting that feeling, and I’m usually right about girls.
Me: Uh, [Roommate], she’s gay.
Roommate: You’re wrong!
Me: She’s swearing like a sailor!
Roommate: That doesn’t matter!
Me: She’s rapping with a sideways baseball cap!
Roommate: Lots of girls do that!
Me: [Roommate]! Now she’s wearing a suit and tie. Give it up.
After this particular conversation, my roommate and I went on a war, based around determining the sexual orientation of this elusive creature. We both began to obsessively watch as many videos as we could in the next few days, along with looking at the HAWP website, listening to the Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’ Podcast, and in my case downloading a tile wallpaper of Ashly Burch. She also has a DVD on Amazon. Just sayin’.
My other gay roommate agrees that she’s gay, but my straight roommate couldn’t tell (of course, she couldn’t tell with me either). Honestly, I’m starting to doubt myself, especially because, shockingly, my gaydar is not very good. My gut reactions are always a certain way, but then I start to over-analyze everything about this person, and suddenly my gaydar BREAKS. This is an unfortunate pattern in my life. Apparently my roommate has the same problem though.
Here’s my evidence:
– Baseball cap
– Suit (in multiple videos)
– Lots of swearing
– Super cute smile
– Really really awesome
– Plays with NERF guns
– Super huge eyes
I realize that most of these don’t make sense. I’m OK with that, because I really want her to be gay. If you talked to my roommate, he would have an equally nonsensical list at the ready. This is why I can’t tell: because no matter how much I watch her videos…I STILL can’t tell. I think it would have been obvious by now, either way, so I’ve decided to just not care.
