    I’ll just paste what I said on the FB post:

    “Why do we have this knee-jerk reaction to term the most foolish homophobes as closeted homosexuals? I’m not saying internalised homophobia doesn’t exist. I am just worried that the first comment in most forums when someone does homophobic shit is, ‘And he might even be secretly gay.’ Biko, LGBT folks don’t want such idiots. Let them be straight abeg.”

    On a more serious note, it’s simply not true that most homophobes are self-hating gays. A lot are, but the majority are stupid straight men. It’s almost as if we think so little of our community. Or we think gayness a punishment for homophobes.

      The sentiment that a homophobe may very well be a self hating gay person comes, to me, from the belief that if you’re rabidly against something that ought not to concern you, then it MUST concern you and you’re trying to convince yourself otherwise.
      I don’t believe homophobes are internally homophobic gay men. But I believe that anytime the issue of homosexuality comes up and you don’t waka pass, and you jump in foaming at the mouth, then you’re a self hating gay man.

        Oh and many a time, they do not walk past. They must talk, vent, bark. It’s almost as though it’s a misfortune and I’m the cause of it.

        I still reiterate, no confident straight man would care so much for what two people do in their rooms.

        “How person go dey put im dick for shit?” this to me aren’t the words of a straight man but a struggling gay man.

    Delle, you realise this relates to biphobia of which you’ve been guilty of in the past?

      I know it’s your sworn mission in life to always call Delle out on his PAST biphobia (emphasis on ‘past’), but aren’t you going for a stretch by relating this post about internalized homophobia to biphobia?

        Maybe I’m going for a stretch here but I’ve always opined that it takes lots of relearning and unlearning not to be homophobic (internal and external) in Nigeria. I tend to cut people slack and only come hard on their homophobic asses if they blatantly refuse to assimilate new info.

        But Delle has been unlearning and relearning. Admitted it himself in a comment awhile back. Doesn’t look like you’re cutting him any slack in spite of that.

      Now, this right here, is the definition of petty.

        Pete would keep on coming this way. Even if the post is about vegetables and how it affects the alimentary canal of the unrepentant bottom, he would drag it out till it somehow connects to my past sentiments on biphobia.

        Oh well…

    This post made to remember a Facebook profile I came across last Thursday where this guy has written boldly as his Bio headline. “I am Straight” Meanwhile, we have 44 mutual friends. *vigorous eyeroll*

    They end up hating you and asking you to come to confessions in church after they aff fuck you all through the night… They blame you for making them sin. Yet they come to you when hormones come calling…
