The Origin of Homosexuality in the Black Male

I recently read the work of a Black college student in America, which suggested that homosexuality in black men is a legacy of the subjugation of the "African male" by White colonizers. I don't mean to simplify his arguments here, but apparently the colonizers were intimidated by the apparently more virile, robust Africans (with larger penises) and sought to emasculate them through enslavement, and through raping them. I never realized emasculation was a primary intent of slavery, as opposed to developing from it.

I don't yet have enough knowledge to substantively disagree with this persons argument, but I have a few opinions I'd like to share. I do not believe that homosexuality has anything to do with lacking "manhood". As "manly" as African males were/are perceived to be, the occurrence of homosexuality is no less, or more, marked in African societies than it is in every other today. Surely there were/are cultural mores that proscribed homosexual behavior more stringently than in Europe (where there was some documented discussion about variance in human sexuality), but to suggest that (black) African people were entirely heterosexual before colonization is rather gratuitous. 

Why would anyone want to convince themselves that they are gay because of the systematic emasculation of black men by europeans? Supposedly this subjugation continues today with global structures that perpetuate imperialistic relations between (black) Africans and their descendants, and the powerful, white West. So, I am to believe that my attraction for men is less essential than the attraction European gay men feel for other men, because the incidence of homosexuality in my lineage is nonexistent prior to the 17th century. Oookay. So then if it wasn't for colonization and slavery I would be straight like everybody else? Fuck the white man! 

After responding to his essay this budding scholar was quick to remind me that "the truth is offensive". His claims are somehow credible because "he spends his entire time reading and writing, and has thought about the origins of homosexuality in Black men for months". Consider this "fact" that he reminded me of: homosexuality was considered a mental problem, but when alot of white people within the white collective started to come out of the closet, it was removed from the list of mental disorders. Oh really? I didn't know that. This entire time I thought it was removed because in fact gay people are not mentally ill. Obviously the development of a politically active (primarily white) gay community was crucial, but homosexuality was not removed from the DSM of the APA without due consideration of empirical data available.  

There are no homosexuals in Jamaica, or at least, there weren't any a few decades ago. It's tourism, American television, and the Internet that are eroding the moral purity of my Christian country. Bunkum and Balderdash! People need to stop recycling this misinformed and ignorant bullshit. It's scary what formal education can do to people who do only selective reading.

    I enjoying reading your papers, your rhetoric is on point. :)
    I think the young man whose paper you read, was only finding or using information that supports his point and disregard information that is on the contrary.

  4. I think the college student should do a little less reading and a little more thinking. Most people who are repulsed by homosexuality cannot articulate a compelling reason to support their position. I believe that the mixture of discomfort we feel with things/ideas that we don't understand and a homophobic society does that to the feeble minds.

  5. I was doing a research project on this topic and this blog came up in google search. I just wanted to say that I dont think your homosexuality is more pronounced etc because you are black. However, the truth still stands that the emasculation of the black male throughout history by the white subject is very true. Rape, castration and sodomy have all been used to instill fear and dominate the "other", whether is be male, female, black or white. During the budding era of the Ku Klux Klan, clansmen would rape and castrate black men, not because they were homosexual but because sexual violation was/is a power tool and sent the message that black male sexuality had to be controlled or eradicated. Also during this time, you saw an uprising in lynchings of black men. In which many would be castrated and their penis would be distributed amongst a group of lynchers, to celebrate the power and dominance they had over their victim(s). White men both in slavery, during jim crow, now have an inherited fear that black men will somehow steal, and or taint the white race through white women. And in order to protect "their women" and reassert their heternormativity, they had to create the image of the black brut, buck in order to justify slavery and many other cruel acts towards blacks.

  19. Rubbish.

    All civilizations have exhibited homosexual interaction as a necessary stepping stoneof natural population control, social grooming and simple affection. In Ghanaian culture the court "Soul Washer" to the king raises some questions; Queen NZinga headed a fierce batallion of women who's society inverted male and female roles, etc.

    Contemporary study is headless, but look into classical civilization. Just like Greek, Rome, Persia, China, Japan, Europe and probably the Americas, human beings have depended upon one another intimately. Because of lack of documentation and shoddy scholarship, students like the afforementioned create blasphemous essays.
