I am a rabid “Empire” fan, and often follow comments on Facebook and Twitter while the show is still on.

And some of the comments of my straight brethren are killing me.

“There is too much gay sex.”

“Why do they have to have women kissing each other?”

“It just ain’t right.”

Nine times out of 10 it’s not straight men saying this shit but middle-age black women. Usually they don’t have a boyfriend or husband. Yep, they ain’t getting dick and hating that some gay man or lesbian is getting something they are not.

Just plain hating.

I am dying to comment but “Van” says why bother? Why get myself upset trying to change folks that are ignorant? He runs across the same thing on his Facebook page, especially from a cousin.

Guess what, she’s a middle age uptight black woman too.

There is no gay sex on Empire. There is no porn. You see lesbians kissing or Jamal and his Latino boyfriend or black photographer pretty boy (wow, they got rid of his character quick between the first and second season) passionately making out.

But they are not showing them simulating gay sex acts on TV. This is far from “Queer As Folk.”

Besides they are not doing anything straight actors do not do. Hell, even Viola Davis on “How to Get Away with Murder” is getting her swerve in. Did you see that black guy she was cheating on her husband with?

Dayum!

Same-sex marriage is legal and I’m seeing gay men and lesbians holding hands all over Washington, D.C. Times are changing.

But we got a little ways to go.

  1. I love that it pissess them off!! Way to go Empire Jamal and his scenes kick azz.
    Once me and my dude were in Lowes and this black woman in front of us just looked at us with such disgust, shaking her head, she didn’t even know us, I was like F her, but not all women walk around with a chip on their shoulder either its just the ones who haven’t dealt with their baggage like Erykah Badu said.

    • Jailovzmen: Sorry that happened to you in Lowes. She better be glad she didn’t pull that on me. Management would have had to call the cops to a crime scene on Aisle 3.

      What gets me about Facebook comments on LGBT people is that they are the scapegoats. I mean, folks having affairs up in church and out-of-wedlock babies and divorcing and shit but no one says anything about that. But two gay men show some affection on Empire (although Jamal pulling Michael’s hair was saying something to me) and folks’ bloomers get all twisted.

  2. Hello,im a 44yr old “cutie”. I love your blog,it has opened my mind to other relationships and people just being happy. I am into guy black porn because of you explaining everything and for that , i must say its soooo sexy to see to fine ass dudes go at it. I love it !!! Jamal is fine straight or gay. Im single and a freak. I will unleash on my next boyfriend. Have a good weekend gemini.

  3. Viola’s character just recently had a lesbian kissing scene in How to get Away with Murder so that brought out even more “there’s too much gay sex on TV” comments. They also say there shouldn’t be as much gay sex as there is because we’re only 1%-2% of the population.
    I was actually kinda surprised people are still complaining about Jamal on Empire. The first season made it pretty clear they’re not shying away from homosexuality.

  4. I sometimes listen to the local black oriented talk radio show against my better judgment. The black male radio talk show hosts (and some of the black men who call in) say all the time that they LOVE to watch “girl-on-girl” lesbian action. Saying they like to watch women kissing and sexing each other is like the thing to say among many straight black men these days it seems.

    These same straight black men, however, totally reject any penis-to-penis” action (as they call it). They want anyone who will listen to know that they HATE the very idea of man-to-man sex.

    Haters NEVER prosper. I WILL NOT get exhausted from saying this #byeFELICIA!
    Lee Daniels & Shonda Rhimes are pushing ALL the βœ‰s & pressing ALL the buttons. & THAT’S how you get Emmys etc.! These geniuses are doing NOTHING short of what the other (read non-Black) $$$$ makers have been doing for EONS to get ratings while earning they coins.
    Lee Daniels is doing THE most with ‘Principe’ & ‘Maul. I wanted him & ole pretty boy to be booed up this season. Did you hear when ‘Maul called him a ho? #iDIED watching the pot cuss the kettle BLACK! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  6. It is amazing that it pisses people off. Not only that, I live with a homophobic relative and It fucking amazes me automatic discuss that they get from two same sex couples doing what straight people do. I look at it as hypocrisy. It’s fucked up

  7. Hi immanuel, I have reading your blog since a long time ago, but this is the first time I comment. I live in the Caribbean and I would love to contact you by e-mail, because I would like to share my history with you and ask you some questions because I need some advice. Thanks in advance.

  8. Hey man. My sisters are middle aged black women and I love them but they are dangerous. What even more scarier is that they think they are born again Christians until they get mad and cuss someone out. Lol. They are in everybody’s business and knows everything about everybody….I have a middle aged black female cousin that is a Evangelist. Her son announced on facebook that he was gay and she called and cussed him out. She told him she dis-own him and for him to keep his life insurance paid up for when he die of aids. He cried his ass off but never apologized for being gay…… He is 36 years old with 3 kids…..I think people in general get nervous about gay sex on tv because it is still fairly new. I remember when whites were uncomfortable seeing blacks being intimate on tv. I don’t watch empire but I have seen tyler perry ” The haves and the have nots” I notice when I watch the show with straight relatives the room get very quiet when jeffery is doing or say something gay. Everyone looks uncomfortable. You can feel it in the room. Lol. I think as long as preachers preach that fire and brim stone message to church goers; our race in particular will always associate gayness as a sin and a sure path to hell. They will never change……….

    • I hear & agree with you Marcus, & you know what will never change either?

      The rate at which we contract & die of STDs & many other diseases that SPECIFICALLY plague our BLACK populations GLOBALLY.

      I’m about to start tellin’ mothafucka’s a BIG, FAT “FUCK YOU!” when they start preaching THEIR tainted version of Pupa Jesus’s love. #FIN

    • The people that a lot of black gay men call “family” are not really family. “Relatives” and “family” are not necessarily the same thing.

      In many cases with black gay men, their relatives are so homophobic that it would be best to separate from them. Yet many of us refuse to eliminate these homophobes from our lives because they’re “family”. But how are they family if they hate who you are?

      It goes without saying that if you are a gay man you NEED a gay support system (family). It might save your life.
