Gay Troubles........ [sexual Preference; Bigotry? ; Name-Calling, Etc.; Very Short] - Poem by Bri Edwards

Gay Troubles …… [sexual preference; bigotry? ; name-calling, etc.; VERY short]

Kick me in my face,
Call me a disgrace,
Put me in my place,
Just ‘cause I wear lace?
You homophobic scum!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

no i am not gay and i am glad i am not. life is tough enough without a 'problem' like that to deal with! ! ! ! i find nothing objectionable about it other than the inconvenience it can cause for some gays and some people who are 'concerned' about 'it'. feel free to comment please.

    Sorry but I think I may just offend but four things trouble me about this poem 1) Do gay men wear lace? Terrible stereotyping 2) Why would anyone think your gay for writing about it and why did you feel the need to say your not gay? 3) Is being gay a problem and if so for who? Many gay people don't have a problem being gay 4) Is this poem inverted bigotry itself? I'm not sure why you wrote it. You say you find nothing objectionable about gay people yet I, sorry to say, find the poem just that. Oh and I am gay and don't find it an inconvenience. BB (Report) Reply

    All people should be free to love and be loved. That is it. Life is short and a life without love is a lesser existence. (Report) Reply
