Usher believes a good man is hard to find, which is why there are lesbians

Usher believes a good man is hard to find, which is why there are lesbians

Fed up with the negative rumors surrounding his's marital situation, Usher gained a bit of notoriety last month for his angry response on TRL. In this month's issue of Vibe, Usher clarifies his comments a bit further, explaining why he should be praised for being a reliable heterosexual life mate instead of having gossip columnists speculate on his separation from his wife. Particularly of note is his bizarre explanation of the origins of lesbianism:

"Am I so much of a bad guy because I decided to get married? Am I so much of a bad guy [because once I got in the situation], I decided to stand for something, build a foundation, and think about my future? As a man, you would respect me for not turning my back on it. ... It can never be bad to have a foundation as a man — a black man — in a time when women are dying for men. Women have started to become lovers of each other as a result of not having enough men. Are you not studying the stories? Wake up! Black love is a good thing."

Is this explanation of lesbianism feminist, or homophobic? Is he getting ready for the 150th anniversary celebrations for The Origin of Species? My guess is that Usher means well, but doesn't realize quite how controversial that argument can be construed.

 

Elsewhere, he talks of making amends with his mother after she opposed his marriage, and the troubles of being a music superstar and a father at the same time. Usher's new album Here I Stand came out on May 27. [Idolator

Yes, Usher. The entire reason I love women is because I can't find a good man.

PUNT.

Taking that any further than a moron making a moronic comment is to give actual credence to said comment. He's a *singer,* not a professor; he has platinum records, not a PhD. Actually being offended by that comment is ridiculous because it means that the party(ies) offended is/are taking that comment seriously, as if Usher knows what he's talking about - which he does not, as per the aforementioned reason.

He's an idiot who said something stupid. It really is that simple.

I still think that he is gay, an that is a sin, read your BIBLE.

The idea that women love other women because there are no men around is definitely NOT feminist. The assumption in Usher's statement is that a man is the best option. The truth is, of course, that for a lot of women men are simply not an option at all. Some men are just unable to see the world from any other viewpoint than the back end of their raging hard on. "She's having sex with another woman? Well, that's just because *I* wasn't available at the time!"

I don't actually think that he meant that comment to come out, and sound so controversial. But he really should have thought about what he was going to say before he said it.

this comment is so stupid. "there are lesbians because there's not enough good men in the world" then i guess "there are gays because there aren't enough good girls anymore".

....

LuVLeZLyFe-I can understand your outrage at Usher's statement as well as others who condemn you to hell for being a lesbian. However, in your infinite ignorance you sound ridiculous. How dare you call someone "another lazy ass n----r". I don't see touring, rehearsing, recording, and writing music as lazy. And the fact that your choose to say n----r, in a day and time when the world is crying out for racial solidarity, you insert racism into an argument of sexism. Fighting ignorance with ignorance makes you look as foolish if not more foolish than the person that you are attacking.

Peace and Blessings

Though I feel that Usher is off his rocker, he does have a point. I see many women who once had relationships with men and are now dating women because they

I couldn't care less what usher thinks, but he has a right to his opinion. I take more offense at the bible thumpers trying to cram christianity down my throat . If your gay and not hurting anyone else then it is your freedom of choice. I live in Thailand where being gay is openly accepted. I have found that these people who are are not only very talented but exceptionally intelligent. They have a sense of humor that is second to none. I am straight but have enjoyed their company in local night spots on occassion and am glad i had the opportunity to meet them. I firmly believe that none of us choose our sexuality, it is just a part of what we are.
