ROLAND MARTIN AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF HOMOPHOBIA

Posted by antiintellect on February 8, 2012

Homophobia ALWAYS has consequences. The only thing different about Roland Martin is that the perpetrator also has to feel it. Gay people know that homophobia has consequences. It’s homophobic straight people who are waking up to this reality. When I think of the many gay people who have lost family, jobs, their lives to homophobia, Roland losing his speaking gig does not equate.

    I believe that the LGBT community, by making an example of Roland Martin, has alienated the non-LGBT community from your worthy causes of human and civil rights. Most of us in the straight community, don’t detect any homophobia in Martin’s tweets. You may think that you have won the battle…but lost the war.
