 roadFormer homophobe looks back on his religion-inspired bigotry: "My hatred of homosexuality finally subsided when I began questioning the Bible — the ultimate source of my hatred. Without the Bible, there was no reason to hate homosexuality. It was a natural desire, and though I didn’t have that desire myself, I wouldn’t want to be persecuted if I did. It didn’t hurt anyone and in fact made people happy. It was not rational to oppose it. Now both my friend and I are both vocal supporters of gay rights — and that means other people just as crazy as us can turn around too."

Her plight and the public policy question at the heart of it have attracted little public notice. But the issue has turned Gerus-Darbison and others in the hemophilia community into an army of Davids standing in the path of political Goliaths -- America's highly organized gay rights community, the Red Cross, the American Medical Assn. and others."

  1. That Almasy, who inspired The English Patient, was gay has been known for years. It is intriguing to have further confirmation, though!

  2. Meg Whitman would be a complete shrill for big business, screwing the middle class; not to mention gay rights. This is the test of whether someone completely awful can buy political office.

  3. Benjamin jealous is the real racist here.

    And I agree with Gerus-Darbison.

  6. Great to see this being talked about, Meg Whitman must be stopped!

  7. One has to wonder what all Jealous would constitute as being "sufficient outreach"? Crawling on our hands and knees, begging for their help?

    Posted by: LiamB | Apr 5, 2010 6:04:00 PM


  8. I'm with Jealous on this one. The gay community loves to play the "but how can they be homophobic blah", when we ALL know racism is the gay commnities "dirty little secret". Gays (unless they are of color) have no interest in supporting communities of color. Talk to a gay person of color (if you know any) if you don't believe me.

    The NAACP owes the gay community nothing.

  9. Basically, Jealous is passing the responsibility for the homophobia within the black community to the oppressed community, here. They don't want to change, and he doesn't want to answer for it. It is racist, because it's infantilizing the black community; that they're incapable of understanding that bigotry is wrong without being taught, and that they're not responsible for their bigotry. Of course, it just wouldn't be politick for him to endorse personal responsibility.

    Outreach in the black community hasn't been neglected by many, many lgbt advocates, and that crutch is no longer a viable excuse. Or does Mr. Jealous believe that only white men are gay? LOL! He is representin', though.

  10. That's right, marty. Take those rights and RUN RUN RUN! SPit on those trying to achieve equality because, hey, you've got yours. Saying that the NAACP owes the gay community nothing is pissing on the grave of bayard rustin. ANyone that would endorse that is a piece of homophobic trash.

    Posted by: TANK | Apr 5, 2010 6:17:50 PM


  11. LOL. Ah yes, I almost forgot to expect the white gays to roll out "Baynard Rustin" as their go-to black gay for all occassions.

    Here's a challenge. Toss out the names of some WHITE GAYS that supported the civil rights march Tank??


    Better yet, name a gay rights organization
    that has endorsed ANY black struggle recently?

    Baynard Rustin was a BLACK man first and foremost, as are most Black gay men and with good reason.

    I'll wait for your list of names tho'....

    You're actually MAKING MY POINT.

    My point was just as gays have no interest in Civil rights for minorites (isn't THAT the right thing to do?) Black people should feel no obligation.

    But I'll wait for your list of names first...

    Posted by: Marty | Apr 5, 2010 6:26:07 PM


  12. You can't even spell his name. You have no credibility in any meaningful ethical context. Your argument is trash. Apparently you, like jealous, don't believe that gay people of color exist, making the NAACP about black people...so long as they're heterosexual (and probably religious, too; excluding atheist people of color).

    You're an ass. You exist to incite conflict where it doesn't exist.

    Posted by: TANK | Apr 5, 2010 6:32:16 PM


  13. I exist as a gay man of color to speak the truth. You just can't handle it or would rather not own up to it.

    Typical.

    Posted by: Marty | Apr 5, 2010 6:34:49 PM


  14. And yes, the NAACP is about BLACK people (and Brown). That's why most gays of color still feel more welcome in straight homophobic communities of color than the white gay community.

    Posted by: Marty | Apr 5, 2010 6:37:37 PM


  15. Marty

    Considering in 1965 many gay men were closeted due to the fact that they could be areested, sent to mental institutions, lose thier jobs, or be arresested there were VERY FEW gay rights leaders, Like maybe 2. So don't be an obnoxious idiot.

    But many closeted gay men and womed DID support and fight for equal rights back in the 60's because they knew oppression is WERONG. You just didn't know they were gay. It's not like we are rainbow colored.

    Posted by: Wolf | Apr 5, 2010 6:38:52 PM


  16. Oh my god you're stupid. I'd wait for it to sink in, but I doubt it will. I love how people think that they can separate and compartmentalize aspects of themselves. "When I'm black, I'm not gay...because black has nothing to do with that...and when I'm gay, I'm not black..." WOw...the hoops you jump through to justify your warped understanding of reality is surreal.

    Posted by: TANK | Apr 5, 2010 6:40:32 PM


  17. LOL. Seriously Wolf? You are actually going to make a statement with ZERO facts to back it up?

    What do they call that?..oh yeah, "talking out of your ass."

    What about the black people who marched without the benefit of being "closeted"? Are you actually going to pretend it is courageous to be secretly supportive of the Civil Rights March as Blacks were out in full force??

    You, sir, are a pathetic douche if you believe that. Being closeted takes ZERO courgage.

    Posted by: Marty | Apr 5, 2010 6:46:16 PM


  18. And Tank, until you answer the question...you're just a blowhard.

    But I think you know that.


    Posted by: Marty | Apr 5, 2010 6:47:27 PM


  19. It was 1965 Marty. Almost EVERYONE was closeted. Perhaps you should brush up on your LGBT History.

    Oh and better a douche than a reverse racist man.

    Posted by: Wolf | Apr 5, 2010 6:50:19 PM


  20. Wow...
    Marty is proof that bile-spewing racists come in all colors.

    Posted by: Brad | Apr 5, 2010 6:53:32 PM


  21. Sorry if this went over your head Wolf, but essentially what you're saying is that white gay men were too cowardly to stand up, despite the millions of black people who took to the streets AND YOU'RE OKAY WITH THAT!.

    Posted by: Marty | Apr 5, 2010 6:55:21 PM


  22. And I know my LGBT history and unfortunately I'm not impressed.

    Posted by: Marty | Apr 5, 2010 6:56:26 PM


  23. Wow...
    Marty is proof that bile-spewing racists come in all colors.

    THAT could be why no one in the gay community wants anything to do with him.

    Posted by: Wolf | Apr 5, 2010 7:06:54 PM


  24. Wolf, this is an anonymous blog..you have no clue who I am.

    Again, talking out of your ass.

    Good luck with that.

    Posted by: Marty | Apr 5, 2010 7:23:01 PM


  25. Yes, because we all know that being black was a criminal offense that got you thrown in jail, or chemically castrated, or subjected to the oh so gentle "cures" of 1960's mental care. Not to mention when your family and friends found out you were black and tossed you to the curb like trash, leaving you out on your own with no support structure what-so-ever.

    Honestly, why would a person's sexuality even be brought up in the fight for racial equality, especially during a historical period when homosexuality was officially considered a mental disease, not an inborn trait? Seriously, get some perspective.
