Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande released the long-anticipated song “Rain On Me” to thunderous applause from gay people, but USA Today‘s take on the tune wasn’t quite as enthusiastic as queer media’s claim that the duo “just simultaneously invented music, listening, emotions and crying.”

“Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande teamed up for ‘Rain On Me,’ an upbeat dance track where each singer takes a turn with a verse. They also sing together on some of the choruses,” an underwhelming tweet to the story read. Twitter automatically identified the problem: it must have been written by a “straight dude.”

While gay men worldwide agreed with entertainment writer Bradley Stern‘s hypothesis, others suggested the article and tweet were written by a robot. Asked their opinions, the editorial staff of LGBTQ Nation unanimously agreed that they’ve seen worse attempts to string words together from actual human beings.

Adding to the comedy gold, someone threw out the question: What if the newspaper fired all the straight writers and gay men had to write the sports columns?
