i had a moment of wanting to slap the taste out of your mouth, but then i realized you have a very good point... soooooo, now what? how does that change?
lol. Thanks for realizing my point. The most important thing is for more gay black exposure for sure. That would mean gay black folk will have to exert themselves more but that will also mean gay blacks will have to identify with the "gay community" more. Its hard to do that when yes, when you think of a gay person the first thing that comes to mind is a white, fit, middle-upperclass, licentious male. So I'm hoping these gay magazines and porno companies, and newspapers as well as any gay media will become more open towards more gay black members joining their ranks.
And it wouldn't hurt if non-black LBGT people would try to communicate their feelings on being mistreated as a gay person more often to black heterosexuals. But I guess in order to do that you'd have to befriend them more but I understand the seperation because its typically a seperation of culture.
And yes, stop comparing gay rights to black civil rights. Both communities are around the same level when it comes to discrimination...NOW. But when you compare the two situations, black people immediately conjure up whole black communities being lynched despite being freed from slavery. They conjure up images of black men being castrated. They see crowds of black people being sprayed with water hoses and attacked by dogs. All by the decree of the freest government on earth.
The gay community as a whole has never faced anything like that and you insult black people when you compare the situations. Try being more specific. Point to the acts of discrimination gay people face that black people face.
