Is the Babadook the new gay icon?

The Internet is whole-heartedly embracing the Babadook as the latest gay icon, because why not? The Babadook's rise in status started when Netflix misclassified the movie under its LGBT category. The Internet being the Internet, ran with it. Others think the whole joke is dumb and some think it trivializes what the Babadook is really about—a woman's personal trauma. What do you think? 🌈
