i could sit here and font about a male.
pick any male.
once i font about him,
he’s instantly in google.
i could font about all his career aspirations,
how fine af he is,
and guess what?
some of them still won’t respect me because i’m gay.
being gay to some is lower than being a criminal.
it use to bug me,
but now i realize:
I got something out of it just as much as they did
i changed my perspective so it doesn’t bother me as much.
i’ve become a lot more selfish with what i gaf about.
one of my foxholers hit me up in dms about an encounter on POF…
if you don’t know what POF is,
it’s “plenty of fish” which happens to be an online dating app.
some jackal sent the following to them the other day:
“i keep shit gee”?
he was hurt by it.
i told them he needs to EXPECT it.
not everyone is going to like you because you’re gay,
you can be gay with plenty of swag,
nice ass clothes and dope crib,
but someone will despise you because of your sexuality.
that’s the reality.
this isn’t a forest of sugar plums and chocolate drops.
some folks in the real world don’t like things they can’t understand.
that’s called “ignorance” and some are soaked in it.
so i choose to realize not everyone will like me for me.
it’s so much more freeing.
i don’t expect everyone to like me or the foxhole.
i certainly don’t like most straights “just because”.
i’m not so sensitive about random shit.
i use to be real heavy.
the forests have gotten so ignorant,
especially with this asshole in office,
that i’ve come to expect ignorance.
I enjoy being shocked now
when folks respect me,
or fight for me,
i can font you right now that’s when i let my guard down.
