The Game Totally Supports Gay Rappers, But Thinks Closeted Ones Give Everyone AIDS

The Game is a rapper. The Game likes speaking about himself in third person. The Game don’t have a problem with gay people. The Game has a problem with people that are pretending not to be gay… because they all give their girlfriends AIDS… or something. Seems like someone has been watching a bit too much of R. Kelly’s In The Closet.

We’re actually happy another successful rapper has encouraged his gay peers to come out, but while homophobia and AIDS continue to create big challenges in African-American gay communities, it’s erroneous to conflate the two a la “homophobia causes AIDS.” Homophobia certainly contributes to rising HIV rates, but saying that closeted men spread AIDS completely excludes the straight men, women, and social factors that also play a part.

And of course gay people exist in hip-hop. We’ve been saying that long before Hot 97 DJ Mister Cee got caught getting a beej from another dude (no homo).
