It makes me so uncomfortable and irritated when I read posts that say “oh well sure it’s bad for you but at least your white so you can’t have it that bad” etc. I know that racism still exists - shit, I’ve experienced it first hand - but I don’t feel the need to constantly point out to people how much worse my plight is because of my skin colour. Is it really necessary to point out how much worse it always is to be a “person of colour”? I don’t feel like it is. It confuses me.
I know that it’s generally harder to come out to black parents because of more instilled homophobia but does that mean that all white people have an easy time of it? Does it matter if they do? I dunno, I really just don’t understand it at all.
When I read the POC posts, they rarely feel like they’re raising awareness of black/POC issues. Instead they generally feel full of hatred and bitterness to everyone else and I hate that. I for one will not be reblogging them. I despise racism - be it Black to White, White to Black, Chinese to Indian or any other kind of variation.
Someone on facebook today (a girl I grew up with in Jamaica) uploaded a photo of a black, gay couple and wrote “OH MY GOD BLACK PEOPLE ARE COPYING NOW - STOP IT; IT DOESN’T SUIT YOU” I can’t tell you how much that shit irritates me. See she knows I’m a “girl” who has a girlfriend, but her excuse for me was that I’m half white, but to see 2 black men, 2 rastas being openly gay. Well, I could hear the thud of her hitting the floor in a shock-induced faint from the UK.
It pisses me off man. OF COURSE THERE ARE GAY BLACK PEOPLE YOU FUCKING MORON! “yeah but it’s wrong - the bible says so” UH HUH, so is rape, murder, child abuse, fornication and all that other shit you have no problem with - why is it ok for you all to now decide this person who broke this biblical rule should pay with his/her life?!
See this is the fucking thing with you fucking people. You claim to be open and loving yet you’d rather your child die or live their life utterly miserable than to be themselves? Than to love someone they love. Yes, there are black gay people - lots and fucking lots of them and you know what there are a lot more who have committed suicide because of people like you. Your ignorance sickens me. You know what, you all piss me off.
There are so many lesbians, gay people and trans people in Jamaica who live every single day in fear of their lives because apparently it’s your business what they do with their genitals. They have the fucking nerve to judge LGBTQetc people when in the same breath they do other shit then hide it. I love my country but the hypocrisy in the culture fucking sickens me.
Reading comments like “no way I’d eat that” because a fried piece of chicken vaguely resembled a penis just reminds me how fucking pathetic yet engrained the homophobia is in that culture. Still, things like murder and child abuse go on practically unnoticed.
I am Jamaican. I am polyromantic, asexual, genderfluid and proud of all those things. Why should I have to choose between my family, country and culture and the things that make me who I am?!
HOMOPHOBIA, TRANSPHOBIA & ALL THEM PHOBIAS FUCKING SUCK
