If ‘Heterophobia’ Were Real …

A short film entitled “Love is All You Need?” uses real life events in an alternate universe to explore if “heterophobia” were real.

“Love” creator and director K.Rocco Shields uses intolerance, bullying and suicide to depict what the world would be if being gay was the norm and straight people were in the minority. The film has already won a total of 19 film festival awards.

At present, WingSpan Pictures is currently seeking financing of the feature-length version of the movie, which is reportedly set to star “Twilight” hunk Kellan Lutz.

Check out the powerful short film in full below.

Spinning The New Pope as a Good Guy

 

 

The media keeps highlighting that the new pope has a long history of advocating on behalf of the “poor”. I’m assuming they think this absolves him of his homophobia, misogyny, and all around ignorance. It’s easy to be “for the poor” without examining how social inequalities like disdain and lack of access to contraception like condoms and birth control adds to the growing number of the poor. Or how homophobia prevents people from accessing the workforce and other segments of society that could help them hold a job. Or how forcing women to carry pregnancies that they don’t want or can’t afford also adds to the growing number of the poor. Also, I don’t see homophobia and misogyny as synonymous with humility. A modest view of one’s own importance does not translate into infringing on OTHER’s rights. They can try to spin this new pope into being a “good guy”, but he’s not.

Black Men & Patriarchy

Patriarchy Is Not Logical, Boo

So, I had to laugh yesterday when a boringly patriarchal Black man accused me of only wanting to “crush” Black men. I was wondering with what racial, gender, economic or political power I was going to do this crushing with. In most cases, without a weapon (or even with one), I could not even do that physically. I most certainly cannot sociopolitically.

What he meant was by not digitally giving him head by worshipping and co-signing his patriarchal tweets or for some Black men, even complimenting their avatar, I seek his destruction.

You see, male oppression (in the context of a man and woman of the same race) = hurting his feelings. That’s it. He would not dare criticize the White supremacist capitalist patriarchal systems and institutions that he seeks to emulate versus eradicate. Achieving patriarchal power is quite too important to him to critique the White men who deny it to him in many ways. Thus, blame Black Women 101 starts.

The absolute funniest part is that he claimed that being a Womanist “blocks” my logic. Because…worshipping patriarchy is logical and has brought Black men so much joy and peace? Please see The Middle Passage. Please see lynching. Please see Prison Industrial Complex. Further, how logical is it to consistently disregard knowledge and research of socialization and cultural norms (though ALL research is subject to inquiry), not biology, as the primary cause of “gendered” behavior. Why? Because Steve Harvey or a random pan-African heterosexual able-bodied Black male who is sexist and homophobic said so?

He tried the boring “it’s biological for me to dominate and control you” argument. This is always fun when Black men or other men of colour start this argument. They NEVER have a good answer as to why White men should not be able to dominate and control them since Whites feel biologically superior to Blacks and other people of colour. Feel. Because that is what it is. A feeling based on bigotry. Even the ever so worshipped Thomas Jefferson had a collection of writings filled with lies and pseudoscience to justify White domination. Centuries of medical practice reveal this.

Black men like this need to read Medical Apartheid by Harriet A. Washington and learn their goddamn history. Then they can read Delusions of Gender by Cordelia Fine, as a start on their ideas of superior gender. Then read bell hooks. Then read all of the Black foremothers’ writing. Then read James Baldwin so they can be reminded of how Whites think Black men are inferior and how they as Black men are using the same flawed arguments Whites do against both of us as flawed arguments against Black women. While they do all this reading and studying though, they can stay the entire fuck out of my Twitter mentions. Feminist Black men need only apply.
