the Real Homophobes Of AtlantaBy: Stephanie Allen-Gobert

The fifth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta premiered in October. And since then, the ladies hot topic has become “The man who doesn’t want me is gay!” Porsha Williams’ exhaustive storyline has constantly implied that her ex-husband, Kordell Stewart, who allegedly notified her of their divorce via Twitter, must have been diving into the man pond because they weren’t sexual.

With the recent announcement by Michael Sam, a major NFL prospect who twitted Sunday night revealing that he is a proud gay man, The Real Housewives of Atlanta twitted and trended for opposite reasons. There is an unexplored theme in reality TV that features black women; the criminalization of black male sexuality, blatant homophobia and the misappropriation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender culture.

Last year, Kenya Moore, the former Miss USA and RHOA star  insinuated that Walter Jackson-a man she begged to marry-craved boy love because he didn’t go on bended knee or have sex with her during a trip to the Caribbean.

The allegedly classy Georgia peaches spit the hot button word “gay” to rationalize why a man doesn’t want them, and thus raise the flames of homophobia. Also in the process they victimize black women for not having a man. For the dynamic duo(Moore and Williams) and so many other women to attack a man’s sexual orientation because they’re not married or are divorcees is despicable, it’s an attack on the black male sexuality, straight and gay.

But their “homophobia” doesn’t stop there. On season 4, one of NeNe Leakes’ TV BFFs, Marlo Hampton, hurled the word “f—got” during a trip to South Africa. None of the ladies corrected her. On season 3, there was a buzz that Phaedra Parks’ husband, Apollo, might be gay because he was incarcerated. When Kenya Moore joined the cast, she stated that Phaedra should get an AIDS test because he’d served time in jail.

Several other episodes depict the RHOA walking and talking and snapping their way through each episode, cheaply imitating the LGBT culture.

Some say the RHOA may claim that they’re for same-sex marriage and LGBT rights, but most of the women in the cast (not all-Kandi Burruss never “drags it up” for the camera) seem to receive a pass for their bigotry.
