a foxholer hit me up with a question yesterday.
it was about an ig attentionisto who had another ig attentionisto in his stories.
they were posing after what seemed like an intense workout. the question was:
“Do you think they’re fucking?”
hmm. after watching the ig story, i had one answer on what i saw…
2005 – “noah’s arc” made its debut on logo.
it was a show that started the ball rolling to where we are now.
the plot was about masculine dl gay wolf falling for a feminine out fox.
not many got to watch,
but those who tuned in where pretty much hooked on that story line.
with some searching,
it brought the idea that a relationship like that “can” happen.
2007 – “on the down low: a journey into the lives of straight black men who sleep with men”was released. j.l. king,
brought the word “down low” to the mainstream.
he was on oprah with the shit.
we always knew this kinda thing existed,
but it was always very hush hush or “i don’t believe it”.
it was the start of many of a witch hunt,
with paranoidvixens at the front lines,
but it started whispers on the secret lives of dl males who sleep with other males.
2008 – “hiding in hip-hop” by terrance dean was thrown into the ring.
it was another book that put a spotlight on the dl,
but the ones who were down low in black hollywood. star fox(rip) was the first to read it and urged me to buy it.
that is the book that actually made me a believer.
i was hooked. could many of the malesi fantasized about be out here messing with males?
2009 – “the foxhole” was born.
somewhere before all of that,
there were wendy’s rumors and other shenanigans that all makes sense these days.
we have come a long way from those days of questions and confusion. now we have “straight“ rappers boldly getting head in leaked videos…
