Karamo Brown Thinks Gay White Men Have Privilege
Karamo Brown does make a valid point in one sense when he mentions racism in the gay community. I have seen racism in the gay community and I’ve even posted about it here. However, it’s not possible for gay white men to have privilege.
You cannot be gay and be privileged. If you are gay, the moment you are born you enter into a world where you will always deal with discrimination, shame, and hate. I’ve been posting links to these things for years now, from what the police do to gay men to what organized religions do…almost all religions with respect to all races. I have faced that discrimination personally all my life.
Heterosexuals can comfortably and safely talk about their relationships with opposite sex partners where gay men, lesbian women, and bisexual individuals often censor their discussions, choosing their pronouns carefully.
With that said, I personally have experienced discrimination from people with straight privilege who come from ethnic minority communities. This homophobic discrimination comes from everywhere there are non-gay people.
So I do agree with Karamo Brown to a certain extent. I have seen racism in the gay community. However, I don’t believe that anyone that falls under the umbrella of the LGBTQ+ community could ever be referred to as privileged. That simply does not exist.
When Anderson Cooper Asked Lady Gaga If She Had a Penis
I don’t remember this, but apparently other people do.
In 2011, Anderson Cooper asked Lady Gaga if she had a penis and here’s how she replied.
“Why the hell am I going to waste my time and give a press release about whether or not I have a penis? My fans don’t care and neither do I.”
Here’s more. Well done, Lady Gaga.
