HOMOSEXUALITY...AS "POPULATION CONTROL"...SAY WHAT...?

Happy New Year people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May God bless all of you with a prosperous 2013. I have not blogged in a few weeks, but I stumbled upon (actually someone sent me this article but I was sworn not to say who did) an article written below entitled, "Homosexual Behavior as Population Control" by a man named Ridgley Muhammad. the article is listed below:

http://noirg.org/homosexual-behavior-as-population-control/



Here is my response to the good man's article:  


As-Salaam-Alaikum,


May Allah(God) bless you with the best of health and spirit. I came across your article about homosexual behavior, and had a few comments regarding  your views. This is one of the most short-sighted, uninformed perspectives on sexual orientation that I have ever read. If homosexuality were "population control", then why are there more humans on Earth now than at any time in history? This, despite the fact that more gay men and lesbian women are out and living their lives as they see fit.

Despite there being more black same-gender loving men and women as a part of the black community, it has not affected birth rates at all. In fact, some black gay men and lesbian women still have children and raise them,(because they wish to be mothers and fathers as anyone else would) albeit in silence from persons like the brother who wrote this article. This attempt to scientifically rationalize the Nation of Islam's anti gay stance is ridiculous. If your argument is theological, keep it as a theological argument. These wild-eyed, overly simplistic and off base conspiracy theories make sane minded brothers and sisters not take you all very seriously at all.

If the relationships between black males and females are damaged, then you may want to look into 400 years of dehumanizing chattel slavery, segregation, mass incarceration (that has more black men under criminal control of the Justice System now than black people were slaves in the year 1850, 10 years before the Civil War), and the disparity in education between educated men and women in the black community as contributing factors. You may wish to look into the cyclical generational death spiral that the black community has been in post "integration". Oh, and lest I forget, black on black murder rates having soared to gut wrenching levels in the last 35 years may be another reason there are not enough heterosexual black men for your women to find potential suitors and husbands. Add to that mix, a poverty rate that has scarcely moved since Dr. King's assassination in 1968, and I can sort of understand the disintegration of black male-female relationships. Can you?

Scapegoating gays and lesbians for the ills of the black heterosexual community shows that your ignorance blinds you and hamstrings you from taking effective action to deal with all of the myriad problems in black-male relationships. We are not the cause of your relationship woes. According to a 2010 report, the "DL" myth was debunked as the main factor contributing to black women contracting HIV/AIDS. Their studies found, as well as other studies, showed that black men having multiple female partners in a heterosexual sexual climate, was a much larger factor. Get your own heterosexual house in order.

Being gay is not a "lifestyle" or "preference", any more than heterosexuality is. There are over 1500 species in nature that one could find members of participating in same sex behavior. As a former member of your organization who is now openly same-gender loving, I had to suffer in silence for years because of the way of thinking presented in this article. Minister Farrakhan and many other Ministers/Student Ministers can be heard at any given point calling gay men "faggots", and yet with a straight face, say so innocently, "but we are not homophobic".  People who are not such would not use "baby language", as Master Fard Muhammad and The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, your spiritual benefactors, put it, to denigrate those with whom they differ.  I am so glad that I stumbled upon this website and decided to read your words.  I pray Allah bless you with the light of Understanding.

As-Salaam-Alaikum

Brother Hassan
