Entitled part 1 because I’m sure there will be many more of these.
And here we go again. I feel like I’m constantly arguing with my peers about homophobia. It always surprises me how educated people can be so freaking ignorant. For the past week I had been arguing about bisexuality. Among the gems thrown my way were: “There’s no such thing as bisexuality, once you have intercourse with someone of the same sex once you’re forever gay.” and “Bisexuality (and not homosexuality) is what is wrong in America.” And I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the Bible pushers. I honestly just don’t think Jesus would love everyone but homosexual, I just don’t. I don’t think God hates gay. I don’t think homosexuality is a choice, and even if it was, I don’t think people should be controlling what others do in their bedroom. I think gay marraige should be legalized and I think it will be within the next decade.
I think Black people especially need to get over their homophobia. I believe men on the DL is such a problem because of homophobia. I think if Black gay men could be out and accepted (at least in rates similar to the White community), I think there would be a lot less DL and more out (and happy) men. In terms of bisexual men, there is little to no incentive to be honest. I’ve met numerous women who flat out refuse to date a bisexual man, even if he was perfect in every way. It blows my mind. With all these women crying about being single and the lack of eligible men, how can we completely shut off a whole group of men.
