if ya’ll know the caribbean as i do,
i feel like those two flags would get up and start fighting each other.
you know how jamaica is with homophobia.
some of them probably see a rainbow in the sky and think the sky is gay.
so the entry about shaggy got the conversation started in and on the foxhole.
as you know,
shaggy said that most homophobic attacks in jamaica happen between gays in crimes of passion.
( x see it here )
a foxholer who lives in jamaica and chose to remain anonymous wanted to dispute shaggy’s claims.
this is what he sent me on ig…
i certainly believe it.
i grew up in barbados and they would shame anyone for being gay.
Storytime: there was a male that lived in the gap behind my grandmother’s crib that was gay.
I was told he was crazy and wore women’s clothes.
He never left his house because of it.
I was told not to ride my bike behind there because he would snatch me up and rape me.
Needless to font,
I always rode my bike past his house because I was a rebellious little one.
One of my female cousins,
whom I don’t know,
told me how she and my mother were actually cool with him.
My mother would pick him up and they’d hang.
Hearing that made me wonder if my mother would have accepted me being gay.
i’ve always heard rumors of how it’s really dangerous to be gay in jamaica.
it was never crimes of passion like shaggy claims,
but hyper-masculine jackals expressing their hatred.
in a nutshell…
Shaggy is full of shit.
you can’t pull the wool over the eyes of those who actually lived in the caribbean.
lowkey: i’m gonna font something controversial…
I’d have a hard time dating any male from the Caribbean or Africa tbh
there is too much un-resolved shame many males from the caribbean carry with them.
it was hard af for me to even accept i liked males.
they are comfortable being a thief in the night for your buttcheeks.
i’m not saying we gotta hold hands in the streets but sheesh.
the dick can be goooooooooood but it’s like you gotta throw away the human attached to it.
Am I wrong for thinking this?
