Of course, her revealing statement will get little attention from the Godless, far-Left press because A) Monifah, despite being a longtime artist, had at best one minor hit during her career and B) it dispels the Gay Mafia's position/myth which states that homosexuals are "born that way" (despite scientist after scientist having failed to come up with the ever elusive "gay gene"):
LGBT people have some of the highest rates of depression and substance abuse. Do you think any of that factored into your issues?No, actually that was probably the least of them. It was more based in the things I had gone through as a child. I had a lot of deaths of people close to me. My sexuality wasn't a big issue for me. There are a lot of gay people in my family, so the ice was broken. My brother, God rest his soul, whom I was very close to and helped raised me, he was 12 years older than me, his name was Kevin Carter. He was a gay man, and I felt like, whatever, it was so prevalent on my mind that it wasn't a huge deal for me exploring my feelings for women. I didn't feel frightful in that area, any resistance, I didn't experience any of that. That definitely wasn't the cause.You haven't made your same-sex relationships a secret. When was your first one?Exploring my affinity towards women, actually it's so funny. Terez and I laugh because we have this running joke. We're like, "Oh! Now I understand why I liked Kristy McNichol!" You know? I didn't understand what it was. It wasn't anything sexual. I just thought they were cool. There's so many people, retrospectively, it's like wow! It's a big joke. I had a bad relationship with this older guy who was real controlling. After that I thought, I'm going to the girls' club, I'm going to meet a woman, I'm going to date a woman. I'm going to find a woman. I just made a conscious decision.That happens a lot — why do you think that is?I don't know! [Laughs] I mean, I really don't know. It wasn't like I hated men or anything. I just thought I'm going to give that a break, because I've never experienced a realtionship with a woman, and I was curious. I thought it would be a good way to give the guys a break. I was going to live my life, I was just going to be me.
