darnell moore http://wfpl.org en Strange Fruit: Yolo Akili, Darnell Moore, Gay Men and Sexism http://wfpl.org/post/strange-fruit-yolo-akili-darnell-moore-gay-men-and-sexism <p>He's a poet, activist, counselor, wellness consultant, performance artist, and more. But this week, what got our attention about <a href="http://yoloakili.com/">Yolo Akili</a> was his article, <a href="http://goodmenproject.com/ethics-values/gay-mens-sexism-and-womens-bodies/">Gay Men's Sexism and Women's Bodies</a>. In it, he talks about incidents of gay men giving unsolicited advice about (and sometimes&nbsp;nonconsensually&nbsp;touching) women's bodies, and why it's often seen as more acceptable behavior in gay men than it would be in their straight brothers. We've talked before about how being gay doesn't give you a free pass to be racist; Yolo reminds us that it also doesn't give you carte blanche to make sexist comments or treat women's bodies like public property.</p><p> Sat, 17 Nov 2012 15:00:00 +0000 Laura Ellis 2547 at http://wfpl.org Strange Fruit: Yolo Akili, Darnell Moore, Gay Men and Sexism
