Most of you know that I do not watch television so I am not up to speed on what's going on in Hollywood. But I hear about things; Now the other day it was brought to my attention that Mr. R kelly has a video or something outin which a preacher and his wife were both cheating on each other with cats who were on the down low. One thing I do know, hollywood tends to do things to death--to squeeze the last penny out of an idea until there is no more money to be made. But the price we pay for satiation is high because when something is thrown at us so much we get the impression that it is a big issue when in reality it is not. Is the issue of down low brothas as big as Hollywood is making it seem or are we helping to spread fear and distrust in our community? Sistas, how many times have you decided not to date a brotha because there was something slightly efiminant about the way he carried himself and moved his body? Do you look more for clues about a brotha's possible sexual orientation than you do for clues about his character and suitability as a mate? Brothas, have you ever been mistaken for down low just because you don't fit the stereotype of how a man should appear to be? Do you run from the stereoptypes. ignore them or defy them?
