so an f-bi just sent me this “situation” earlier.
i don’t think i rolled my eyes hard enough.
a quack named umar abdullah johnson thinks black men turn gay due to single parent households.
ones who are mainly raised by black women.
the video associated with the story has been circulating from 2013.
i guess it’s back on the internet streets for whatever reason…
Dr. Abdullah Johnson, a certified psychologist, child therapist and founder of the National Movement to Save Black Boys,feels strongly about empowering the black community, especially young black men. Much is clear after one listens to his many impassioned speeches on the need for fathers and mothers to take an active role in their children’s lives, but is his analysis of why some are gay dangerously flawed?
At the 1:52 mark, the good doctor added that mothers “psychologically castrate” their sons then act shocked when they turn out gay. This statement suggests that being gay is a defect and that mothers are responsible for this shortcoming.
I admire the doctor’s spot-on critique of absentee fathers and barely-there mothers in the black community. I agree that we can do better and need to do better. I applaud him having the guts to not only speak truth to your own but offer solutions as well.
But ostracizing or branding a section of the black population as defects or equating being gay to being emasculated or raped is counterproductive, for he is dismissing large segments of the black community that can and does contribute positively.
One pastor even encouraged his congregation to ”beat away the gay” in their children. Pastor Sean Harris, head of the Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, N.C., since 2006, took to the pulpit to teach his flock how to get rid of “butch-like’ tendencies in their girls and girlishness in their boys.
“If your little son starts acting girlish when he’s 4 years old and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying man-up son, get that dress off you and get outside and dig a ditch cause that’s what boys do, you get out the camera and you start taking pictures of Johnny acting like a female… you upload it to YouTube and everybody laughs about it and next thing you know, this dude, this kid, is acting out childhood fantasies that should have been squashed,” said pastor Harris.
So Johnson is not the only one who believes homosexuality is learned or caused by parents and that it can be unlearned. Interestingly, they do not view being heterosexual the same way. No one says heterosexuality can by be switched on and off by prayer and therapy.
i didn’t mean to laugh,
but it’s funny to me.
i grew up with both parents.
father was “be a man!” and all that jazz.
i liked watching sports and play video games.
i still ended up liking muscles and my back blown out.
i do like fashion and enjoy some good entertainment gossip tho.
even star fox (rip) had both his parents both active in his life.
i could name a couple more gays who did as well.
so is this logic flawed?
it maybe true with others so i can’t speak for everyone in the gay community.
i had to ask…
Does single mother households birth gay men?
…and is that why most are so feminine?
lowkey: this kinda reminds me of this k michelle song:
this song is a whole nother topic about men in general.
