Malcolm X Had Gay Sex! He Joins a Historic Club!

Categories: Activism

malcolm-x.jpg
A new book about Malcolm X says the controversial civil rights leader had an early homosexual relationship with a white businessman, according to The New York Times.

And he's not alone! Anyone with a Kindle will learn of a whole bevy of historical figures who turn out to have been "that way"!

A recent book about Indian peace (and weight loss) advocate Mahatma Gandhi suggested that he dabbled in the homosex as well.

And of course Larry Kramer published a book last year offering what he says is proof that Honest Abe Lincoln not only freed the slaves, but he freed his body parts for various same-sex activities.

Plus Geri Jewell (Facts of Life) came out as a lesbian, ba-dum-pum.

Is there anyone in history who was straight?

Is Mount Rushmore basically a quartet of fabulous queers?

And hasn't it become a truism that if you're an important world leader, you're also a versatile bottom?

So Malcolm X took blood-gorged sex organs up his anus and into his mouth and then condemned others harshly for doing so? well la-de-dah!

Oh what an embarASSing revelation!

Nothing more entertaining than gays projecting their own experience upon others.  Just because you overcame your fears and came out of the closet doesn't mean everyone is gay like you.

"Does his sexual orientation really matter?"

Why do people only say that when gay stuff is involved!!!!

"What really matters are his achievements."

As if his achievements have never been discussed before or will never be discussed again!!!!!

Chill out, homophobes.

This is why Spike Lee didn't want me to interview him for "The Advocate" when "Malcolm X" was released. He knew I knew about Malcolm.

Does his sexual orientation really matter? Or was it his contributions to the world that we should be focusing on?

If in fact Malcolm X did have gay sex (which was before his embracing Islam) according to Mr. Manning Marable's book, it stands as further testimony to the power of human beings to potentially take control of their destinies in phenomenal ways. The embracing of human rights struggles and truth knows no sexual preference boundaries relative to the GOD Given freedom of choice to take paths towards ultimate self-development and spiritual enlightenment.

Umm, the writer of the new biography was an African-American man who grew up under segregation and who as far as I know was straight. This has nothing to do with gays trying to make everyone be like us. Would that we could.

If we needed photographic evidence to prove the facts of historical figures' sexuality, then we couldn't say much about anyone, homo or hetero. And having children doesn't prove anything: most gay people throughout history have had children.

I've been reading the Malcolm X book, and I encourage anyone who, out of homophobia, dismisses the Malcolm gay affair out of hand, to engage with Manning Marable's narrative before dismissing it.

Unless a credible witness actually saw the full, penetrative butt sex happening, I'm not buying it, not about Gandhi, not about Lincoln, not about Malcolm X, not about G.W. Bush.

The last one was just to get the rumor mill going.

Allegedly
Allegedly

But the thing is this, just because an assertion is made in public (whether in print or not) does not automatically grant rumor credibility. And with historical figures' sexuality being a frequent topic of speculation, we forget that these hypotheses are often unfounded. Even photographic "evidence" of said relations would have to be doubted in this age of digital manipulation (PhotoShop, etc.)

Alex Haley hinted at this in his Autobiography of Malcolm X but didn't, uh, flesh it out.

I'm guessing the white businessman was a 'foxy white liberal,' a 'sticking it to the man' guilt free experience without compromising the depth of his faith.

"The Negro revolution is controlled by foxy white liberals, by the Government itself. But the Black Revolution is controlled only by God." - Malcolm X

It will probably be treated as a horrible smear campaign.

I am wondering how the black community is going to accept this revelation. I am basically certain that it will be denied. Homophobia in the black community is rampant, and I doubt that outing Malcolm's experience with a white man is gonna make much of a difference in the hood.

That will be fine so long as history books leave out the wives, affairs or spawn of heterosexual persons. You stoopit, disingenuous, hom skooled, double standard'd, talibangelical cretin. And any such evidence doesn't undermine anything, except perhaps the homophobic project from bigots who wish to silence, defame and disfranchise glbt history and people. Praiz!

I like to think its the latter. But the fact that this is even news suggests otherwise. Its almost as if this revelation is intended to undermine those achievements and contributions, and discredit an important historical figure - given the nature of his actions, beliefs and teachings. Its kinda like how people sometimes try to discredit Lincoln by saying he owned slaves.

Yes, people can "take control" and marry, have children, stay in the closet,then kill themselves.

Yeah, like Barney Frank and Allen Ginsberg.

There's more gay sex, like more straight sex or any kind of sex, than penetration.

What closet have you been trapped in all these years, Brando thing?

Larry, honey,then STOP thinking about it !

Not so much. A gay man might find eating pussy repulsive, but not disparage straight people in general. News flash: all sex is repulsive to some people.

Sharpton is not homophobic as I recall. He knows plenty about what his fellows do/have done, where they live, etc. Fill me in if I'm wrong, but he's rather real on the topic.

Word up, I do not believe this Sh-t. I need to see some real proof, I need to hear him same this Sh-t. Malcolm X has become an Icon for black youth and this is a way to tarnish his image. We have know about his criminal activities for ever. There has never been a question about his man hood, why now?

Movielover

Don't worry, sometimes the process is slow to be dragged into enlightenment and truth. You might read some Alfred Kinsey and his scale of 1 to 6, with people estimating where they are on the scale - 6 being exclusively homosexual and 1 being hardly at all. You might even be a zero.

Some white liberals are pretty foxy, chile. Wouldn't you want to break off a piece for Angelina Jolie, or Brad Pitt, or James Franco, or Barbara Streisand, or George Clooney, or even Silver Foxxx Daddy Bill Clinton?

Don't front now, Miss Thang!

You damn right, what and where the hell is the proof. The big question for you Ron, is why do you believe it's true. I want to see the damn proof and not just a blog reporting on it, this is some bullshot.

Are you suggesting there is no homophobia in the white community? Surely you jest! What about the whole Westboro Church clan and their silent and not so silent partners in crime? What about Pat Robertson and his followers who are predominantly white? For cdrying out loud, what about the whole I-am-right-because-I-am-white republicans from the Fox network and their followers? Like I said, surely you jest!

I did not mean that he was homophopic, rather his total head explosion about ANYTHING that in any way makes a negro look bad.

Umm...I'm "pro black"! Meaning I know plenty of great black folks of all types and love me some good black men, but it's well known that in a "macho" cultures, black, Latino (love them too!!) there is wide spread homophobia, more so than in the white culture. Of course nobody has the market cornered on hate, and in all of the cultures, often using god as their excuse, when the preachers/priests, etc. tell their flocks from early on, as soon as someone can understand language, that gays are bad-bad devils, it has a terrible affect. I can think of a few otherwise likeable show biz types who "innocently" let it slip that they know gay is bad because the lord told them so. Also people are taught that feeling affection or sex towards the same sex is weak. Many of the men from this segment also actually are miserable towards women. Whorey, I think none of this is news to you.

"Negro?" You're so racist you hate yourself.

Sharpton was one of the first pols to support gay marriage.

Now please go shtup yourself while you're at it.

This is one fella (me) who knows about more than Hollywood trivia. I would respect your criticism more if you clarified what is condescending in my remarks? Not being hostile, but wondering. Pro black is not a great term, it could mean a lot of things, but in this context, I mean that I am in no way anti black. Wanted to specify that before saying anything about black culture and homophobia.

Type your comment here."Pro-black" is not the same as "Being black" and reeks of condescension. I respect you more when you confine your comments to Old Hollywood trivia.
