People say that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. And I wholeheartedly agree with that statement.
I’ve been to Vegas.
Well, I also think that same logic applies to jail. What happens in jail stays in jail unless you were shanked by somebody, in which case the statute of limitations on returning the favor is pretty much unlimited.
However, given the circumstances of those men who are placed in jail for extremely long sentences, a question becomes evident to me:
Is it acceptable for a man to be gay in jail?
Umm…not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Think about this: people need personal interaction to live in this world. I don’t care how much of a loner you are; we all need some skin-on-skin action in our lives. That’s what prostitutes are for, to provide a service when you can’t get any skin-on-skin action from anywhere else. Much like video h*es, prostitutes don’t get enough credit for the service they provide to humanity.
Why would this change in jail? Especially when you have to spend years in a place where the only female might be a prison guard who is only sleeping with the death row inmates.
[***DISCLAIMER: Before we go any further, let me clear few things up. I’m not gay, nor do I live a gay lifestyle…not that there’s anything wrong with living a gay lifestyle. I’m not even a metro-sexual. In fact, I’m still confused as to what a metro-sexual means since my take means almost gay, just doesn’t know it yet. Once again, not that there’s anything wrong with that. I have no problem with gay people, gay marriage, pink, flamingos, or John Legend. Nor do I plan on going to jail. I just think it’s an interesting topic. ***]
Of course, the other side of the game is this — what happens when he gets out? Would it be okay if he was gay in jail for, say, 7 years, and then wasn’t gay when he got out? Now, this is in direct conflict with the notion that people are born gay. Then again, jail is in direct conflict with the notion of a mixed genitalia world.
And what with EVERY woman thinking that EVERY man is either gay, gay-curious, or just DL anyway, the thought that its acceptable to say a black man can be gay in jail and come home and be un-gay might make me eligible to be incinerated at a Ponderosa Steak House — which is similar to being burned at a stake, only not at all.
But back to the point, is it even possible for a man to be gay in jail and actually come back out and live a heterosexual life? From a “desire” standpoint? I have no clue. And maybe that is where the answer lies. But…Donnie McClurkin was gay and he turned his life around.
Hmm…that was a judgmental statement that assumed that being gay means your life isn’t going in the right direction being as we only use the term “turned your life around” when referring to any negativity that you pursued prior. I mean when was the last time you heard somebody say, “wow, that Jim sure turned his life around” in reference to somebody going from being a God-fearing Christian to a Satan worshiping cat-screwer?
So, let me rephrase. Donnie McClurkin became — un-gay.
Do we believe that a gay man can become un-gay and not lust after the pleasures of the manflesh?
Like I said, I don’t know the answer.
However, for sake of argument, and assuming that a man could become ungay after leaving jail, assuming also that he would be eligible for parole at some point during his prison sentence, but not before at least 5 years…
…is it acceptable for a man to be gay in prison?
And to throw fuel on the fire, would you (women out there) date a man if you knew he was “prison gay”?
