Rahsaan patterson dating tevin campbell
Just because you don't know what I'm doing doesn't mean that I'm trying to keep something from you. I don't know about you guys but hearing Rahsaan Patterson describe his sexuality as "a spirit that attached itself to him" and the use of the word choice is very problematic for me.The people that know me like my family, my friends and the people I am intimate with, they know, and that's what matters to me. I understand that our experiences are not the same.But when someone implies that a demonic spirit attached itself to their person or they made a choice to be a homosexual(btw who in their right mind would choose to be gay in this society???) whether due to abuse or free will publicly, then the public will no doubt have a reaction to these kind of statements and that reaction will not always be a positive one. February 19, 2009 PM I find it hard to believe that anyone would "choose" to be gay.February 19, 2009 PM You know,we as gay brothers have to be careful that we are not overly judgmental or cynical about our brothers who choose to believe that there is a choice in being gay.
I believe Rashaan shares the opinion of many who have accepted the rhetoric of choice and spirits and such.Just as the educated black character balances out the "hood" black character in tv and film, so too must we have diversity in the gay images that are presented to those looking for gay celebrities with whom they can identify.February 19, 2009 PM There is no ONE absolute understanding of homosexuality SO you can not judge or lambaste him because the view he subscribes is different than the one you subscribe to.Yes, the mainstream Christian church does indeed teach that homosexuality is a spirit, but if one were to go deeper into the truth of the matter, it is very easy to be both a Christian and a proud gay or lesbian person. What we must begin to do is meet people where they are and guide them into a better understanding of who they are. There are some who are comfortable believing certain things about themselves. As important, I believe, is the need to have balance.We need confident celebrity figures to come out as well who can show another aspect of black homosexuality.
I don't really know, but what I do know is that I've never been in the closet or hiding anything.
