So, let me begin this post by saying that I’m a big Tank fan. Now, while I was aware of him from the time he dropped “Maybe I Deserve,” I was all in when he released his Sex, Love & Pain album. Side bar, “Coldest” is GUARANTEED to get it poppin’, son. Trust me, brethren. In any case, it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t address the comments that he made on Angela Yee‘s Lip Service podcast. All in all, I think Tank is a little confused on what “gay” means. Anyway, let’s discuss it, fam.
Ok, for those who are unaware, Tank just did an episode of Lip Service with Yee, Stephanie Santiago, GiGi Maguire and Lore’l. Now, sometime during the conversation, they started talking about what determines homosexuality. From there, Tank had a hot take that if a man gave another man head once or twice, that doesn’t necessarily make him gay. In his eyes, continuous physical encounters are the determining factor of a person’s sexuality.
Look, I won’t lie, man. On the real, I’m a very literal dude, bruh. Now, by definition, homosexuality is “romantic attraction, sexual attraction or sexual behavior between members of the same sex gender.” So, by denotation, a man giving another man head is a homosexual act. Now, to be fair, I don’t give a flying fuckity-fuck about who’s sleeping with who, son. Honestly, I want everyone to live their lives and have fun, fam. But, let’s call a spade a spade, folks. Shit, even if the dude doesn’t identify as gay, he’s at least queer, people. The way I see it, there’s a curiosity there that isn’t synonymous with heterosexuality. Listen, if I’m completely off-base here, I’d like someone to explain it to me. I’m always down to learn.
In the end, I couldn’t care less how men or women categorize themselves. Ultimately, love is love, sex is sex and I hope we’re all doing it safely. However, come the fuck on, Tank. He knows damn well that if Bobby is fucking around with Billy, then this isn’t a heterosexual encounter. By and by, I think other dudes are scared to experiment because they’re scared of how they’ll be labeled. At the end of the day, do what feels right, brethren. Who are any of us to judge? That is all. LC out.
