    ~This is in response to the woman who felt the need to tell me that my being gay was a disease and that i was losing my womanhood. This is entitled

    IM STILL WOMAN


    Im still woman..tho my pants may sag and i may have ill swagg
    but on my birth tag.. it says female
    Now you talkin to me sideways talkin bout back in your day
    and the right and wrong way to live my life...a gay life
    my day to day life that will one day be spent with my WIFE

    how dare you call homosexuality a disease jus because we live at ease
    and you stay on your knees praying to god that one day you can have my clarity
    so dont come at me with "its a sin" because so is being a FAKE christian
    preaching love but practicing hate
    acting like were not able to appreciate the fact that
    jesus died for all of our sins
    see you dont have the decency but
    god always lets me in.

    Although i am gay i am still woman
    one who has embraced the wings of adulthood
    showing doubters that i could and i would become
    something you cant imitate
    even to those who hate and discriminate
    on what i find to be soo great....I let them know
    That i am still woman point blank period
    and yes i still get my period lol
    but why you tryna make me inferior
    i reevaluate my interior..my inside
    what you cant see through blind eyes and fake lies
    the way you criticize...you disregard high crime
    jus so you can intrude upon my life and tell me
    i cant have a wife because of ur own marital strife
    PEOPLE PLEASE GET A LIFE!
    and stay outta mine cause i dont have time
    to write these lines everytime
    ignorance is spewed from the mouth of a person
    that is blind..
    i know this is a lot to accept but go ahead ill wait
    take your time...




    ~Ignorance leads to more ignorance please stop that cycle~

    Bravo!! Even though I know it is difficult you can't let those people effect anything in your life. You tell the bible thumpers that nobody ever used homosexuality to go to war or to enslave people.

    Mad props to you.. i know it is hard being a homosexual woman especially a black one.. so the fact that you can come back at such discrimination with words and not violence is a reflection of your character and applaud you in every which way.

    ~ Dont ever let ignorance force you into action~

    much love..your sister

    You have my support

    always Sister.... your words are tight, the flow is right on and your message is bold, truthful and beautiful in it's authenticity.

    I have never believed that being gay or lesbian changes the hueman experience, or that it should decide who is "Black enough", Womban enough, etc...

    Stay proud and stay true to you!

    She doesn't know what she's talking about.

    Nvermind the haters sis. as long as you are right with the Lord then dare anyone to intervine. I am a proud and strong, black christen women and i am constatly having this same conversation with the congregation. i hate to hear pastors, preachers or generals congregation tell me what God considers exceptable in my life. God himself and only him can tell me that i am not doing as he wishes not some person on this earth just as flawed as i am. God is the only being in existance with thr RIGHT TO PASS JUDGEMENT. Everyone else doing it is sinning themselves. Take pride and comfort in knowing that God does not make mistakes and if he made you then you then there was no mistake. i liked this write most of all because it shows how diverse our community really is and allows those whose minds are closed the chance to see what they are missing.
