THE BLACK GAY COMMUNITY & JIM CROW!
The black gay community more than anyone should know better than to reconstruct a Jim Crow mentality, in which privileged gay men think that other gay men should be LUCKY that they can stomach to be around them let alone associate with them. As African Americans, short term memory is our worst enemy and so many of us seem to think that the oppression and discrimination that we faced is a figment of our imagination. But I have news for you, it wasn’t. It’s very real and it’s very present.
Please find something better to do with your time than to lend credence to the ignorance that somehow straight acting gay men are better than men who embrace the duality of their feminine and masculine beings and don’t actively shun anything remotely feminine about themselves.
There’s nothing commendable about trying to “OTHER” people who are not lke you. There’s nothing commendable about trying to ridicule and demean people who are not like you.
We gain nothing from using tactics from the white racist handbook.
