    Blanco discusses his homophobic, abusive grandmother

    Such an interesting article. It is pretty overwhelming but he does say that he wouldn't be the kind of poet he is today if he had had a different upbringing.


    I'm six or seven years old, riding back home with my grandfather and my Cuban grandmother from my tía Onelia's house.


    Her son Juan Alberto is effeminate, "un afeminado," my grandmother says with disgust. "¿Por qué? He's so handsome. Where did she go wrong with dat niño?" she continues, and then turns to me in the back seat: "Better to having a granddaughter who's a whore than a grandson who is un pato faggot like you. Understand?" she says with scorn in her voice.
    I nod my head yes, but I don't understand: I don't know what a faggot means, really; don't even know about sex yet. All I know is she's talking about me, me; and whatever I am, is bad, very bad. Twenty-something years later, I sit in my therapist's office, telling him that same story. With his guidance through the months that follow, I discover the extent of my grandmother's verbal and psychological abuse, which I had swept under my subconscious rug.

    "I no taking you to dat Enrique's house neber again. He's a Mamacita's boy. I don't want you playing with him. I don't care what you say, those GI Joes he has are dolls. Do you want to play with dolls; is dat what you want señorita?"

    Hilarious. Thank you for sharing.

    On the up side--besides Blanco's poem--it was a big day for gays when the president mentions Stonewall in an Inauguration speech something big happened ---many commentators and historians were amazed he went there.

    boys who play with dolls - guys who are forced to be gay because they aren't "masculine" enough . FORCED into gayness out of simple self-preservation . Victims . As Quentin Crisp , there is a small group of boys that are consistently brutalized . Again there is no evidence/proof that Matthew Shephard was gay . Brutalized by the culture as a whole - emphatically including women . "Bullying" as a school problem reprenting a social problem .

    Tolerance.
    Appalled at the ignorant (even lunatic extreme), but apparently official, right-wing slant of the forums

    I hate the word 'tolerance'. Gay people don't need to be tolerated, they need to be accepted. The entire term is a way of putting down the gay community.

    Hmm... I agree I think. Whenever I think about things I tolerate... I think about things I sincerely can't stand, but have the maturity to ignore. I'd like to think we're moving past that point where a majority of people in western countries are seriously disturbed or bothered by the fact of being gay and moving more into them simply accepting it as normal. (I know we're not fully there yet.)

    Re: Blanco discusses his homophobic, abusive grandmother

    My brother, who, curiously, was stunned when I came out to him, filled much of my childhood, de-sissy-fying me. He critiqued how I carried my schoolbooks, how I screamed, how I sat. He arranged fights for me ("X said you're a sissy. You have to fight him.") I know he did this out of love for me, and I'm sure in part out fear of being sissified by association. And I forgive him for it, but it built a pattern of thinking in me--hiding my true self from the world and ultimately from myself--that has taken decades to break through. I wish I had been able to turn that process into art as Blanco has.
