Don't Call Me "FAG"

Image
Earlier today, as I was in the forums of one the infamous well known Black Gay Chat Sites, I noticed that one forum author and regular always uses the word "Fag."  The word "faggot" and any variation is used as an insult towards homosexual men.  In the Gay Community it is also a term used to mean that a Gay person is full of drama and messy.   Let's examine the real meaning of the word faggot. The word means a bundle of sticks which was a burden to be carried. It comes from the french Fagot.  In the 16th Century the "F" word became an epithet for a woman, mainly a shrewish,  bad tempered woman. From that point it began to denote feminine qualities.  However in the 20th century, is when the "F" word became a derogatory term to denote gay men and feminine gay men alike.   What is my issue with this word? My issue is that I am not a bundle of sticks and nor am I a burden.  I hate when people especially other members of the LGBT Community use…

Being a Black Genderqueer in America #TransLivesMatter

With the recent murders of 18 Transpeople, 16 of those being People of Color, Women of Color, I have been considering my own mortality.  Why? Well for starters, I'm a Black Genderqueer living in South Carolina.  This is the place where the Charleston 9 were murdered in a worship facility, the Confederate Flag was Finally Taken down from the state house after 150 years, and unfortunately, South Carolina is still ass backwards in time and thinking.   I recall one day as I began to take a walk in my neighborhood, in early spring 2015, I was dressed and painted for the Gods and I heard a White Man yell "You're a Boy."  I kept walking and ignored him and acted unbothered, when the truth was, I was fearful that he and his Hillbilly boys were going to attack me and beat me just for wearing a scarf, skinny jeans, light blue shoes, and dangling earrings.   Thankfully I walked away with my life, but I am saddened that my sisters that have been attacked recently were not aff…

Andrew Haigh on Looking from Southern4life Blog

“I would love it if there were more shows with different types of gay people, but I couldn’t do that with Looking. What is frustrating is that gay people complain that there is no representation on screen, but then when we made Looking, not many people actually watched it. We had really low viewing figures and got cancelled! … A lot of people seemed to talk about it without actually watching it. So many people said ‘I didn’t watch your show, I didn’t like it’, but they’d admit they barely watched the pilot. So you’re making a judgment on two seasons of a show after watching just five minutes, and turning it off because somebody was being jerked off in a wood and you didn’t like what that said about gay people. I do think it is rooted in a fear where we want representation in the world, but only of the best of us. Now, it is of my feeling that if we want true acceptance, then we should be accepted fully, as shitty people, who have emotional baggage and who do find it hard to be gay. I …
