Meanwhile across the hall… like I mentioned earlier… my son’s voice had gotten louder and louder and higher and higher until I finally was fed up and angrily yelled his name out so he could come here to discuss what all of this noise is about! As he sashayed into my room and me shaking my head… still popping off nonetheless to whoever was on the phone… I told him to immediately hang his cell phone up and shut up with all of that racket before I snatch his phone from him and throw it out the window… maybe roll over it a couple of times with my truck then I can get back to my television drama fix!
Now that I am thinking about it... it seems that all of his friends and/or the Black gay men we see on television… especially, Black produced television shows… always showcase the Black gay man as an angry Black woman.
SIDE NOTE… before we go any further… now… please hear me out before you or anyone else sends the NAACP or the LGBT or any other of them acronyms after me because you think I am gay bashing or being disrespectful towards Black men… first of all… I am only giving my point of view of the things that transpired in my life when it comes to my son, myself and my home… so leave them folks alone and don’t get them all “Hot and Bothered!”
I feel I need to reiterate myself... so I am going to say this again... Girl... YES... I'm talking to you... the troublemaker... don't you send them people over here bothering me and make me lose my dang mind... you gonna mess around and get somebody's' feelings hurt fooling with me... I stand by what I am saying and I am not in the mood for the shenanigans... all I am doing is expressing myself and once again... minding my own business! Shucks... this is just a friendly conversation amongst friends... and nobody likes a troublemaker... Just Saying!

Do they not understand that these stereotypes represent her physical and mental enslavement during chattel slavery and the true meaning is to continually keep her in an inferior state? Does he even care… or them?
See, my son had behaviors that can be classified as gay like. My daughter would dress him up like a little girl because she wanted a sister… and that is a blog for another day… but the aggressive and angry Black women behaviors did not come along until he started hanging around other gay Black boys.
He started changing his voice and swinging his pretend hair… do you know how ridiculous that looks for someone to swing their imaginary hair with that hand movement… when they have a brush cut?!? Seriously… it really looks ridiculous! Or a Black man changing his voice to be more girly, but when they go off… that BASS magically appears in their voice?!? I am going to need them to pick a tone and stick with it… shaking my head because of the foolery… Just plain… FOOLERY and RIDICULOUSNESS!
So, he keeps trying to convince me… like I just met him yesterday and somehow forgot those labor pains I felt bringing his Stewie shaped... football shaped head azz in this world… no for real… his head was shaped like a football when he was born and my dad was over there trying to mold that big azz football head into a normal shaped head… Girl, I keep telling you the foolery in my life is ridiculous… but funny!
Well, my son never really could give me a clear answer or gave me any logical information to help me to understand his point of view... just a lot of teenage antics, loudness and double talk. In closing... I really don’t know, but to each his own! Do what you feel you need to do to survive and maintain in this crazy world of ours, because I do…
