Homophobic Misogyny

For men, especially black men, their homophobic misogyny is the penumbra of a core master-slave dialectic. The aggression of heterosexual men towards gay men is not rooted in how a gay man objectifies that which he desires. In many ways, heterosexual aggression towards gay men is a knee-jerk reaction to the idea that another man would think of them and sexualize them the way they think of and sexualize women.

Instead of doing their god’s will, too many religious folks preoccupy themselves with doing their god’s job; calling it the “Lord’s work”. Rather than letting their little lights shine, self-righteous bigots of various religious shades devise all manner of ways to shine their dim lights in places they consider to be dark. Each one of these ‘soldiers’ in the army of their ‘lord and savior’ have convinced themselves that they are part of the ‘high command’.

Words of Wisdom: “IT” is what you are when you are young. Your youth mistakes certainty of the few things that you think you know for knowledge of things that it takes a life time to understand. With time and a few life experiences “IT” becomes the thing you pursue to give your life meaning. Somewhere along the way of having or getting “IT” you ask yourself, ‘Is this “IT”? Panic sets in when you realize that “IT” is your life. Fear and insecurity is that feeling you get when “IT” has not been worth a life time.
