How many of you had the opportunity to see Oprah's show yesterday where the author of a book titled "Brothas on the DL" spoke?
This is a big time "CURRENT EVENT
"! And, release of this author's book has caused death-threats on this man's life simply because he is bringing out in the open "not so new -- news" on married men having sex with other men while married. This man claims that these married men having sex with other men are NOT
gay...I repeat...are NOT
gay...they simply enjoy "having sex with men", but claim to "really love their wives".
This is a frightening CURRENT EVENT to read about. I intend to buy the book and read up on it more. Now that I am newly single, whom shall I date?
Married men are not being totally honest with their wives anymore than I'm sure many married women are not being honest with their husbands about their adulterous affairs outside of their marriages.
The spread of HIV/AIDS is on the rise (especially in the Black Race of people) because of this "newsflash" that has hit air waves, bookstores, and radio talk shows alerting women to this CURRENT EVENT about the men they are involved with.
In Ecclessiates (sp?) in the Old Testament of the Bible, there is a statement that says "There is nothing new under the sun". I believe this wholeheartedly, however this is something that is now coming out in the open since we live in a society today that wants EVERYTHING
out in the open.
I'm thankful to the author for publishing this book to open women's eyes as to what is destroying the sanctity of "marriage and family". Divorce is no picnic! Children are the ones hurt the most by divorce. As women are learning about their husband's behaviors in this manner, the divorce trend is climbing along with HIV/AIDS.......especially in the Black Race, and in women of other races who marry or are married to Black men who practice this art of sex on the side with other men.
The author also said this is NOT a "Black Man's thing" to do outside of his marriage, but many other cultures are practicing this unsafe behavior as well, so don't think you are safe just because you have never been with a "Brotha". The author is a Black Male, and that is why his book is addressed mostly to the Black Brotha's wives, girlfriends, etc.
This is not
about being gay! This is about keeping a secret from your wife that may affect her health and the lives of your children because of your promiscuous involvement outside of marriage with other men who do the same as you are doing.
I'm baffled by all of this, and never thought something like this would surface to the extent it has. If anyone wants to learn more about the book and the author, go on Oprah's website and read yesterday's show for an update.
Just wanted to bring this to everyone's attention for your own protection! It's a major health concern for all of us today.

It's a free country, consenting adults should be free to do what they want to do. Hopefully they are using safer sex.
But let me go on record as saying I don't have anything to do with fence jumpers. It's just plain wrong. IMHO. Can't stand 'em.
edited: I'm not talking about bisexuals. But married men who on the sly sleep with men.
