    Question MJ and LGBT...

    As we all know, Michael Jackson was heterosexual. Some author suggested he was gay, but that's just speculation. Jackson explained how the press made up a lot of lies about him incl. allegations of homosexuality in order to turn the public against him. Jackson explained in a song how the press will falsely call people a "homosexual" or a "bisexual". True! But I'm now reading from a Jackson hater in the thread linked above that he was a homophobe... I don't believe that for a second (it's complete bollocks), but I have a question. Has Jackson ever had any LGBT friend? Has he ever said anything in support of LGBT?



    Labelling a thread 'Michael Jackson - Paedophile (Continued)' does not constitute abusive behaviour, accusing MJ of paedophilia, cussing him out, saying he needs to rot in Hell, etc. does not constitute abusive behaviour, telling an MJ supporter (also a Madonna fan): "**** OFF PEDO APOLOGIST" does not constitute abusive behaviour, calling all MJ supporters (incl. Madonna's own fans) pedophile apologists is not abusive behaviour, but standing up to MJ in a polite and civilized manner, providing arguments and sources constitutes "abusive behavior", and I've got a one-day suspension and a warning. They can go f*@# themselves for all I care.

    Trust me, I was very polite to all of them (no insults, no personal attacks), I made good points and provided sources. To the one that cussed at me, I asked them to take their "**** off" where the sun don't shine. If THAT's what that mod sees as "abusive behavior", then they have a problem. Maybe the mod took issue w/ the nicknames I came up for those crooks: ROBson, SafeCHECK and Dan GREED, but all those members can insult MJ in the foulest ways possible, and that's proper behaviour?

    I've never had any issue on that board except when I discuss anything political in the 'General Topics' section. Some people are like that; if you don't agree w/ them at 100% on a particular topic, they will get very angry, will insult you, throw a fit but accuse YOU of acting improperly. Pathetic at best, and I don't give a ****! They've lost a member.

    I am not sure he said anything in public to show support to the LGBT-community, but he was fully aware many of his fans and colleagues in the music business and dance industry were gay, bisexual or something else. He once asked to stop the recording of an interview in the late 70s (if I remember the time frame correctly) after the interviewer asked him if he was gay. Of the record he told the interviewer he was not gay, but he didn't want his gay fans to change their perception of him. He also worked with a lot of choreographers that were known to be part of the LGBT community. Don't want single out any names here. He loved working with them on many occasions (tours), so he probably was open minded about other being LGBT.

    Edit: I read the discussion on the mentioned forum. You gave them facts (and you stayed very respectful to them) but they are not open for the idea the truth is different then presented by Wade and James. So let them believe what they want, they only will believe the other site of the story when it's presented by mainstream tabloid media and that might never happen.

    Thanks for the info, Urvino. It's terrifying how some (like that MJ hater) will spread lies about someone they do not love.

    I think he told that to Martin Bashir.
    It's somewhere in the "Take Two: The Footage You Were Never Meant To See" rebuttal docu.

    (edit... I watched that again, but can't find the part. Maybe it's in the actual Martin Bashir docu? I remember he said that in that green shirt interview.)


    And well, he was a friend with Elton John (dedicated the Blood On The Dance Floor album to him). He was also friends with Siegfried & Roy and even wrote a song for them ("Mind Is The Magic"). Not what a homophobe would do.

    He worked with Freddie Mercury for goodness sake lol and Lavell Smith (his head dancer) is gay also. MJ was around gay people most of his life. If you work in entertainment you are bound to become friends with some gay people.

    I watch a deposition clip and Michael clearly said it doesn't bother him that people are gay this was during the Mark Schaffle case where Michael found out he directed gay porn without ever informing MJ. Michael didn't hate gay people at all. He was more annoyed at Schaffle doing gay porn more than anything else. He's never said he dislikes gay people.

    This might not be a popular thought, but I've often wondered if, had he been aware this was a thing, Michael might have identified with the asexual or demisexual communities. (Leaning toward demi since he did seem genuinely sexually attracted to LMP and Debbie.) I'm ace myself, so I'm probably biased, but hear me out. He seemed utterly baffled by the way that most people make things sexual when they're not intended to be. The fact that he not only didn't initially see things as sexual, but still didn't see them that way after it had been pointed out (referring not just to his interactions with kids, but also stuff like certain dance moves), makes me think there was something on the ace spectrum going on. He definitely was heteroromantic, but that's a separate thing from sexuality.

    I've actually done quite a bit of academic writing about asexuality, and my Master's thesis on this topic includes a footnote about MJ. The reason for this is because certain things about Mark Twain strongly suggest that he may have been ace, and some of these things have parallels with Michael. I won't get on too much of a tangent here, but the major one is that Twain also was friends with kids and even shared his bed with them, and there was nothing sexual about it, even though it raised a lot of eyebrows.

    I know people debate about whether or not asexuality falls within LGBT, but regardless of your thoughts on that, I thought this might be relevant here.

    skip to 6:55 to see MJ basically saying a guy working on gay pornography is not appropriate for what he has in mind in terms of projects. Which I think is perfectly reasonable. But this is probably what they mean by that.


    Anyway, I think it's pretty clear what MJ's stance is. He doesn't want to be associated with the pornagraphy industry in general, nothing specific against LGBT at all. Other than that there is nothing that says he's anti LGBT at all.

    Yeah. Michael made it very clear at the very end that he wasn't bothered by the fact it was a gay film, but just by the fact it was pornography.
    Urvino, Mikky Dee, what's ironic is that Madonna herself loves MJ and has never publicly disparaged him. She even defended him during the whole Martin Bashir controversy.

    Just last August, she posted photos of herself with MJ on her official Facebook:

    Granted, like I said, I'm ace, so I'm probably not the best at telling these things. He did have her have his kids (and they made them the old-fashioned way), so that's got to mean something.

    MJ said he was not gay also on record on certain occasions.

    Like, during an interrogation in 1996 (March).

    Or, during the Martin Bashir Documentary, Take Two:

    …They said I’m homosexual… but none of that stuff is true…” (MJ, Martin Bashir Documentary, Take Two)

    MJ was sexually attracted to Lisa Marie Presley.

    Not to Debbie Rowe.

    When Lisa Marie Presley filed for divorce in early 1996, that thing caused emotional distress to MJ.

    Like, backstage of the HIStory Tour where MJ could not hide that distress (according to people who met him there).

    After the way I was mistreated last time (unfairly warned and suspended for "abusive behaviour"), I stopped posting at MadonnaNation. Since Madonna's just renewed her support of Michael Jackson, I made a few posts in the appropriate threads of that forum including this one:


    Full size: https://images2.imgbox.com/40/a1/CJGY12oE_o.jpg

    I also wrote this on Twitter:




    Did I say anything untrue? No! I also, in one last post (now deleted), briefly went over the eight allegations, explained why I did not believe them, and I included a few tweets by Taj Jackson, Judi Brisse and Carol Humphrey. See how admin Ven Conmigo reacted:

    So, I guess Madonna is a "sick pedo apologist ****" too? I've let Ven Comigo have it on Twitter! Shame on them all, and thanks for yr support, #MJFam!
