    Nice blog. Hmm. Reminds me of my ex GF. Her name was ….wait for this, Ummi. And I was, yes, her christian BF. Ummi was always very boyish. And many of her male friends were gay. So she was our fag hag…

    I once introduced Ummi to a guy who’s a close pally of mine. They shook hands. After she left, he commented on how firm her grip was. He thought she was gay.

    These days, I have a BF. Ummi & I are separated, but still friends. And she’s still single…hmm.

        Nehh, I doubt. He said ‘These days I have a BF.’ I guess he’s bisexual.

        OAN, 4Real, Fag Hag is offensive.

        Some people don’t mind actually.. I know someone who actually likes it. But Yh, better to be politically correct before you inadvertently hurt someone’s feelings.

    👏👏👏 I’m glad this series finally came on. Nigerian families and their expectations of what their children should do to please them though….. *heavy sigh* why should Ummi get married so the grandma can feel fulfilled. She cannot go and find fulfillment by herself? Mtcheew

      @ Ringlana, I completely disagree with you. We all share the same burden and struggle. The illusion that lesbians have it more easy than gay men, stems from living in a world where high premium is placed on masculinity.

      This is why things suck for us.. We are focusing on how we are different than how we are similar. Anyhoo..

    This is truly beautiful. A shame that Ummi had to suffer this kind of psychological blackmail, stopping what would have been a life true to herself.

    I’m so happy you finally got around to doing this. It was a beautiful entry and I’d definitely love to see more dialogue.

    This just shows how similar the struggles of gay men and women are.

    I completely enjoyed this. Please write more.

    Side note, I’ve always envied girls for the way their bodies indicate attraction. Hardening nipples. Barely noticeable. If it’s a guy now, he’d have been struggling to keep things south of the border under control. Smh

    I am not sure what captivated me more, the effortless flow of prose or the subtle, yet impactful (and sexy) sex scene in the story.

    I am glad, you got over your initial fears and decided to write the series..

    Remember this, “Haters are just fans in denial”

    Just Do You.
