There is no such thing as a Little White Lie
While in my friendly neighborhood Wal-Mart the other day I happened to go into the book and magazine section of the store.
There is a new book out by E Lynn Harris, you know the guy that writes all the books about the down-low life style.I could not help but to read the jacket of the book to see what this guy is writing about this time.
Well it seems that this book is just like all the others. A Pro Basketball Player likes to dribble more than Basketballs if you know what I mean, and he is afraid of the fallout if his secret becomes known,so he marries a woman to put on the illusion that he is "keeping it real" with the ladies.
Well, his male jump-off that he has been treating like a queen, no pun intended, doesn't take too kindly to being pushed to the background, so herein lies the problem.
That is all the jacket of the book says and that is all I am going to read, but I can see where the story is going.
First, let me begin by saying I have no problem with Gay people.
To each his own.
I have a problem with people that try to hide their gayness.
If you are Gay, then you should be proud of it and embrace who you are.
I cannot stand a person that pretends that they are something other than what they are.
That is the problem I have with this book and all the other "must reads" written on this subject. A man on the down-low is a motherfucking liar that cannot be trusted.
A man on the down-low is a selfish coward that would rather endanger the lives of the people that love him,(i.e. by giving them AIDS) rather than be a man and stand up for who and what he is.
In my opinion, and this is only my opinion, there is no such animal as a bisexual.
I don't understand how a person can like pussy one day and dick the next.
A person knows what they prefer and it is either a woman or a man. Everybody has a preference of what they like to do and how they like to do it.
But maybe I am wrong. But like I said this is just my opinion.
So be who you are is all I'm saying.
Or if you and your significant other have an understanding that includes tipping out and getting freaky with other people, including those of the same sex, as long as it is understood and both parties are aware of what's going on,then do what you have to do to keep your relationship healthy.
But lying to the people that love you, and endangering not only your life, but the lives of the ones that you "care" so much about, is what my man the Field Negro would call "House Negro Behavior".
