"We don’t live in a society that expects you to keep what you do in the bedroom private, we live in a society that expects you to keep what you do in the bedroom private if you’re not straight."Vanessa Cantrell, comment in a discussion about Coming Out as Bisexual on the BiNet USA Facebook Chat Group (via bialogue-group)

A mom in Baldwin, New York RSVP’ed to a small child’s birthday party invitation with a vile anti-gay screed.
Little Sophia turns 7 in a few weeks, so her two dads decided to throw her a party and invite her friends to celebrate. One of those friends is Tommy, whose mom Beth is apparently a rabid homophobe. She returned the invitation with the following response:
"Tommy will NOT attend. I do not beleive [sic] in what you do and will not subject my innocent son to your ‘lifestyle.’ I am sorry Sophia has to grow up this way. If you have an issue or need to speak to me: 516-362-1357.”
Sophia’s dads were understandably furious, so they sent the letter off to local radio station K-98.3, who posted it on Facebook. The station adds that they contacted Beth, who “gave us permission to post her phone number and said anyone who has a problem with what she wrote can call her, too!”

This is where we’re driven.
This is being queer and black, this is being a feminine black man.
“People want homophobia to change in black America the way that homophobia changed in white America, but it’s not going to happen that way. It’s gonna happen in a way that is befitting to black culture. Everyone always knew Little Richard was gay, but because of his talent, people overlooked it. Dennis Rodman is heterosexual but was a public cross-dresser, but because he was such a good NBA player, people overlooked it. In black culture, talent has always been this big deal. In black culture, there is an ideology of support, of taking care of your people and your community. Changing homophobia is going to come from public figures and pastors telling their community to love their children, that lesbians and gays are your brothers and sisters, that you can be gay and that doesn’t make you less of a strong black man. Discrimination, segregation, and racism make people feel that they have to be strong. And people relate strength to masculinity. And people relate homosexuality to being the opposite of masculinity. When femininity is seen as a source of power in black culture, homophobia will no longer exist.”—Mykki Blanco in this interview with Bullet
When femininity is seen as a source of power….
Powerful words right here.
I think that line in the beginning about homophobia changing in a way that is fitting to Black culture is really important. Everyone has this idea that Black people are more homophobic when that just isn’t true - we just have our own, albeit not okay, views on it that are relevant to us and our communities.
