"Some gay men feel somewhat bad that they are gay because of how it impacts women. However, most gay men don't think twice about how their "gayness" affects women, nor are they moved by the women who wink at them or try to "convert them", nor do they care that they are a statistic that makes, "all good men are either married, gay or in jail" a valid statement.
The above statement is taken from a book written by a relatively new black female author who sent me a copy of her book to review and promote on this site. The name of the book and the author will remain unnamed for now. However, I felt compelled to address the content within as I discovered some of it to be misinformed and rooted in stereotypes.
I'm aware that I have a strong female readership and many times you ladies don't comment but choose to e-mail me instead. Well today I'm opening up this post specifically to you.
A few questions
1)What do you really think when you see a black gay man?
2) Have you ever thought to yourself,"What A Waste" and meant it?
3)If you're single have you found yourself blaming the lack of eligible black men on "the gay epidemic".
4)Have you dated or married a gay man with hopes of converting him?
To my brothers- Should we care what they think?
Alright everybody try not to jump in all at once. This is my first open thread so don't let me down.
