    I have been noticing for almost a few years now that whenever some celebrity or athlete comes out as gay it almost always boosts their career in some way. The first gay football player, the first openy gay mayor or governor the first openly gay news anchor the first openly gay priest, you get the point.

    They're congratulated. The media goes crazy over it and showers them with praise calling them brave and bold. It seems like being gay is really cool now in certain circles.

    Gays are being stereotyped as fashionable, good clothes, witty, always have a nice body, good skin, educated and so on.

    Do you think it's hip to be gay these days?

    You better believe it! However, keep in mind that the pendulum sweeps both ways...

    You asking if being gay is trendy is disrespectful to those to feel that they were born that way...You reduce it to a choice..You ask if individuals are coming out to get attention and fame? They come out because keeping it in causes depression,deception,pain,addiction.The only attention whore is you posting some bullshit that has no relevance to intelligent discussion.

    Excuse you!
    How dare you speak to me in such a vulgar manner. I don't feel as if my topic if NOT up for discussion. Dont you censor me. Your viscious attacks are being documented for escalation. I think you're being wildly unfair to me and I'm not going to stand for it.

    Indeed, I rent myself out for parties these days. I can be the token gay, the token Ph.D., or the token slut boy. Whatever you need for the latest trend. But if you want me to be the designated driver, that costs extra icon_wink.gif

    The feeling is more than mutual, Felicia.

    I think there is something to what the OP is asking here, but there remains a mountain of misunderstanding, negative perceptions and who knows what..
    I doubt in certain countries in Africa or in Russia, most don't think ....

    That said, this all helps. Progress is being made at a greater rate than ever before....

    it's not and never will be. two different things that should never be compared out of respect. besides, someone can hide being gay but they can't hide being black. on another note, being gay certainly doesn't keep folks from being racist either.


    black as in the fashion staple, not race

    See how owl_bundy has been conditioned to think like that?
    Interesting because when I read what u wrote I thought the color black as in a fashion staple like you said, but owl_bundy assumed it was about race.
    Unfortunate.

    how so?? to be honest with you, i think that shit is more for entertainment purposes. either way, they're not taking black people seriously like that.
    Have you honestly never heard the phrase or the Netflix show?

    You are misunderstanding me. The 'black' in my quote has nothing to do with African-Americans.

    There is a cliche in the fashion world where some hot new color is 'the new black' - the trendy, go-to hot color.

    i know of the tv show. the point i'm making is that even as a fashion staple, there really is none. folks just view that shit as entertainment or a chance to live their vicarious fantasies then when it comes to dealing with the shit like actual racism that black people face, they want no parts of that shit.

    why are u making this thread about black people?
