It wasn't too long ago that a young boy dancing to Beyonce's hit song Irreplaceable caused a firestorm of controversy online. In this video (that can be seen above) the young man is obviously imitating Beyonce. Unfortunately, he was born a male into a society that insists on maintaining specific behavioral traits based on gender, so his hip-swaying and full splits didn't sit well with most people.
Here are a few examples of the mean spirited comments that were left for the young man who couldn't have been more than seven years old.
"I would love to have my son beat his ass and get my wife to beat his Momma's ass. This is sad."
"That lil nig gon be gay when he grows up."
"Flamin fag in the making...if it was my son i'd throw his ass in football unpaded for that shit".
Fast forward to the present. The entertainment gossip blog Media Take Out.com has posted a new video of a little black boy dropping it like it's hot and all hell is breaking loose. Here is what's being said in the comments section.
"MEN please raise your boys."
"I done told them people to stop turning their boys into homos. They ain't listening."
"Ok, and why isnt there a scene where the father comes into the video and slaps the Sh**t out of him for doing that? Dang future gayboy!"
"This young boy obviously doesn't have a respectful male figure in the house b/c that dodo brown dance has got to STOP. Shame on his guardian".
I could easily stand on top of my soapbox and pick apart the ignorant comments posted about these young men but I won't. Instead I'd like to point out 10 obvious signs for straight parents who suspect their son might be gay.
1.He would rather watch That's So Raven than Monday Night Football.
2.He knows all of the lyrics and original choreography from CATS The Musical.
3. He's great at putting together a banging outfit.
4. He's polite.
5. He respects Tyra Banks for her entrepreneurship and not her huge rack!
6. He calls women by their name instead of "bitch" and "hoe".
7. He was blessed with too much rhythm.
8. He's aware that crying is not a sign of weakness but of strength.
9. He's not afraid to smile...repeatedly.
10. He knows that using the english language correctly does not make him an Uncle Tom and therefore less black, but intelligent and respectable.
So parents if your child exhibits any of the ten traits listed above then you might as well send him off to a Love Won Out Conference and begin blaming yourself for failing as a parent, because not only are you raising a gay child but a decent human being too. What a damn shame!
