Challenging Roland Martin's Homophobia!

Roland Martin chose to advocate violence against men who are attracted to other men. We will not let this be swept under the rug or brushed off under the guise of "comedy." The words were hurtful and homophobic, and must be called out!

I hope that @tvonetv evaluates its working relationship with homophobe @rolandsmartin. His words are harmful to Black gay people.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
I hope @rolandsmartin is aware of the fact that GLAAD and other LGBT activists are calling for CNN to reevaluate their relationship.

RT @glaad: Take action: Tell @CNN that advocates of anti-gay violence have no place at CNN or Time Warner http://t.co/xAx1jHUg #LGBT

@rolandsmartin My issue remains with you advocating violence to those men who may be attracted to other men. It's careless and homophobic.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
Note to @rolandsmartin: I have seen "It's not homophobic it's _____" a million times throughout history. Bigots always seek to justify.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
Note to @rolandsmartin: gay people can't wait around for homophobes to decide whether or not homophobia harms gay people. Sorry.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
If you consider my sexuality, and not your own, to be a "lifestyle choice," I don't care how tolerant and loving you are. #Homophobia
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
History of homophobia from @rolandsmartin. "Faith, not social pressure, must govern church on issue of homosexuality" http://t.co/te4dTJIJ.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
Note to @rolandsmartin: My sexual orientation is not a lifestyle anymore than yours is.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
RT @rolandsmartin: It wasn't how you describe it. simple as that. <> Then how was it? Please educate the gay community on homophobia.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
Note to @rolandsmartin: I will never apologize for articulating my struggle. Signed, a vocal gay person!
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
RT @rolandsmartin: Folks are assuming plenty of nonsense. <> I guess we gay people are too stupid too know when we are being ridiculed, huh?
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
@rolandsmartin The truth is that you advocated violence against men who are attracted to men. That is the unfortunate, pitiful, truth.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
Gay men know what men like @rolandsmartin mean when they say "real bruhs." They mean the non-faggots, non-sissys. Heard it all before.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
Note to@rolandsmartin: your rigid gender expectations does nothing to support your claims that you aren't homophobic.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
Props to @glaad for backing up those of us who want @rolandsmartin to know that his words are hurtful and homophobic. These are our lives!
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
I hope people look at @rolandsmartin's timeline. It really is an exercise in heterosexual privilege. Deny. Deny. Ignore. Deny. Justify.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
In typical bigot fashion @rolandsmartin stuck to his ignorance. He doesn't have to account for marginalizing gays. #StraightPrivilege
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
@JoeyGaskinsJr @rolandsmartin That's what I want to know. What is a real bruh? Apparently, one not attracted to the same-sex. #Homophobia
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
Apparently, @rolandsmartin shouldn't be called out on his homophobia because he also jokes about New Birth? I don't get it.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
@rolandsmartin The issue is your homophobic tweet about same-sex attraction. I don't really care what you think about New Birth.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
@rolandsmartin Because your heterosexual privilege affords you the right to ridicule same-sex attractions and see nothing wrong with it.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
@rolandsmartin You could have framed that "joke" any number of ways, but you went with the tired homophobic way.. the easy way.
Anti_Intellect @Anti_Intellect
@rolandsmartin You have shown zero care and concern for the gay community, a heavily marginalized community. That is the homophobia.

GLBT can miss me with the persecution complexes. Challenge your members on their racism... then we can talk.
