A popular black feminist writer, Kyla Jenee Lacey, has in a recent article published on the website, The Root, advised black women to try dating bisexual men.
The feminist writer in the article titled: “Why I’m Open to Dating Bisexual Men,” stated that women contribute to the tired trope that a man who has sex with other men is somehow sullied and his masculinity ruined.
She added: [Black male] Sexual fluidity is a real thing, and men have sex with other men all the time.
As black women, we contribute to the tired trope that a man who has sex with other men is somehow sullied and his masculinity ruined, and we will throw the whole man of our dreams away because he had sex with another man and has been honest about it.
She added: “Women will put up with [Black men with] no jobs, multiple ugly kids, multiple baby mamas, multiple other women—shit, wives even; but let him be bisexual, or sexually fluid, and it’s a complete wrap.
“We have become so wrapped up in protecting toxic masculinity that we forget to protect ourselves. . . If he likes me, he likes me . . . I would simply hope that they protected themselves.
“It’s insane that in 2018 controversy surrounding people’s sexuality still even exists – but it does.”
