when controversial moments in pop culture happen,
it really helps gauge the thought process of those around us.
a lot was revealed when chris brown beat up rih and the secret trump supporters that were around me.
as you know,
lnx is a hot topic in these forests these days.
he has everyone giving an opinion or writing a think piece.
I’ve written 2 so far.
a foxholer sent me a tweet from an ex-baller wolf,
i thought he was fine and intelligent but his ignorance blew me away today.
was this tweet directed towards lnx?…
Protect black male masculinity.
— Peak Work Archie (@JoshHarris25) June 29, 2021
so I’ll start off with the positive.
i’ve been following josh for a while now.
i started when he was in college and went on to the nfl.
underneath all that bawdy that I’ll admit i like to look at…
i really enjoyed his thought process on certain issues because he is intelligent.
i always hear this phrase whenever something “gay” happens in pop culture with black males.
my first question is:
What exactly is “black male masculinity”?
the next question is:
What is masculinity in the black community?
is it fuckin a shit ton of hoes?
working out all damn day?
having random children?
running around shooting folks cause they’re mad?
living the obnoxious life of a rapper?
some black males tend to be very fragile about their masculinity.
it’s confusing because as much as some black straights desire for their masculinity to be protected,
there are countless black women who complain about how feminine black straight males have become.
some black males legit run around here playing bigger girl games than they do (or are supposed to).
so many complaints i’ve heard about this black male masculinity.
some black males:
…expect women to do all the work in bed while they lie there like a dead fish
…taking the role of “submissive” when dating a woman
…are super duper sassy
…will run and hide when it comes time in being honest
…will throw their mommy and daddy issues around like it’s strength
…will walk around like stone statues and throw temper tantrums in order to not show emotions
…expect to be chased around like they’re God’s gift to this earth
…have made some black women the providers of the household
…have made women take on the role of mama and daddy when they choose to be deadbeats
…have bigger mood swings like their on their periods
…claimed they’d never wear a dress in movies/tv because it’s feminine but the survey said that was a lie
…can’t protect or defend their gay friends once someone tries to associate them with being gay due to association
…and the list goes on and on and on.
i’m sure there is more.
drop em in the comments!
no matter how feminine lnx might be,
he doesn’t back down from anyone and that shows his masculinity as a gay black male.
i’ve met gay males,
that are more masculine than some straight males.
we don’t back down and i’ve seen some beat straight males down.
i’ve met a shit ton of feminine black male straights who confuse sassiness with being masculine.
most straight black males are selfish af and don’t protect anyone other than themselves.
they don’t even fight for their women!
they do all of this nonsense but expect us to stand together when racism happens.
we sing kumbaya and it’s back to the same bs with these black straight males.
half of the time,
we can’t move forward as a community because of them.
lowkey: i keep saying black folks need a shit ton of therapy.
these silly ideals are why.
