- Tyler Perry
- November 11th, 2011
So I came across a random post on a random blog, talking about Tyler Perry's sexual orientation. Tyler Perry known for his character, Madea, has had a string of successes over his movies that were once played on stage. I am a fan of his works. I seen a few of his plays, watched his movies as they came out, and ultimately look forward to his works. I don't watch his TV Shows though because to me, they are not funny. Anyway! I stumbled on this person's blog talking about how he's in the closet and he might never reveal that he's gay. Excuse me. Do you know him personally? I don't think so. What are you judging this on? Appearances? Behavior? Speech? Lemme tell you something, being gay doesn't make a person a certain way. Not all people who prefer the same sex, dress, look, or even act the same. So where are your ideas coming from? I wanted to post on this person's blog, but the date was posted March of last year and there are so many comments both negative and positive. Quite a few people expressed the same opinion as mine, so I choose not to post anything. They already done it for me. But it bothered me so I decided to post it here on my own 'blog' if you will. But the topic didn't make any sense to me really.
Lemme ask a question. Will the people celebrate if he announces he's straight? Will people hate and discriminate against him if he announced he's gay? What makes people think he should even make a statement on his sexual orientation? Do straight people go around telling the media that they're straight? No, they don't. So why should gay people announce anything about who they sleep with in bed? It isn't anyone's business really and whatever he does, should stay private. I personally don't care if he's straight, gay, or doesn't sleep with anybody. What right as his audience, do we have in asking him a private question?
Before people starts talking shit about anything, they should put themselves in his shoes. Would you like thousands of people asking you what are your personal preferences? Would you mind going on national television and proclaiming something you've known since as long as you remember, just to please people other than yourself? It's just mind-boggling how selfish people are. They should just shut up and mind their own business. Who cares if he's gay, straight, or a purple alien! Just watch his fucking movies, plays, TV shows, or don't watch them at all. Judge him from your safe environment where there's no spotlight on your stupid ass.
