LGBTQIA Monarchs In #Africa ..’ – #In14Ways #Lgbtqia #MercyfulGrace

I am a Tom Girl from Nigeria of the Yoruba tribe and Kingdom. Born this way. In fact my sister 7 years my junior, was a natural Tom Boy as a child.

Imagine my horror after years of harrasment, bullying & dehumanisation for my genetic disposition as a blackman, to find out 700 years ago, my ancestors, endorsed anďrogyny & same sex relations in Africa🧐. See Osumare (3).

(The irony. How sad, when Osumare, means ‘Rainbow’ in ‘Yoruba’, where it’s from. And, ‘Osumare’, a deity (like Sango, Obatala, Yemoja, and etc) who balances feminine and masculine energy, is also an androgynous god whose signature is the rainbow. The same signature of the lgbtqia+ appropriated in the west.

Yet, some of my people, still dismiss, and truely perish; for lack of knowlege).

No thanks, to white jesus and it’s phonie bolonie, idealogy to suppress, oppress and control my people, with a form of christianity, that will white wash it’s indegenious ways, customs and practices for power and control. GTFOH. The Arabs, are no saints either and just as hypocritical.

White Jesus - Aremuorin
Explain. The lift does not go up in this narrative anymore? This is deep like a rabbit hole. Do I get the sense that this was by design to subjugate Africans with mental slavery by distorting history and historical facts with a white washed religion to enventually enslave Africans, in perpetuity? Thats not fair🤦🏿‍♂️👈🏿. More @ https://Aremuorin.me

I never felt, or was made to feel different, in Africa, until my encounter with homophobia in Europe later on in life. Coloniliasm and slavery did a no on us Africans, just as much as the white Jesus they gave us. My research led me – here.

To break it down: LGBTQIA+ 

L – LESBIANS, G – GAY, B – BISEXUALS, T – TRANSGENDERED, Q – QUEER / QUESTIONING, I – INTERSECTIONS, A+ – ALLIES (& Supporters) ..’ 

Examples include:

  • One notably ‘‘explicit” Bushmen painting, which depicts African men engaging in same-sex sexual activity
  •  
  • In the late 1640s, a Dutch military attaché documented Nzinga, a warrior woman in the Ndongo kingdom of the Mbundu, who ruled as ‘‘king” rather than ‘‘queen”, dressed as a man and surrounded herself with a harem of young men who dressed as women and who were her ‘‘wives”.
  •  
  • Eighteenth century anthropologist, Father J-B. Labat, documented the Ganga-Ya-Chibanda, presiding priest of the Giagues, a group within the Congo kingdom, who routinely cross-dressed and was referred to as ‘‘grandmother”.
  •  
  • In traditional, monarchical Zande culture, anthropological records described homosexuality as ‘‘indigenous”. The Azande of the Northern Congo ‘‘routinely married” younger men who functioned as temporary wives – a practise that was institutionalised to such an extent that warriors would pay ‘‘brideprice” to the young man”s parents.
  •  
  • Amongst Bantu-speaking Pouhain farmers (Bene, Bulu, Fang, Jaunde, Mokuk, Mwele, Ntum and Pangwe) in present-day Gabon and Cameroon, homosexual intercourse was known as bian nkû”ma– a medicine for wealth which was transmitted through sexual activity between men.
  •  
  • Similarly in Uganda, amongst the Nilotico Lango, men who assumed ‘‘alternative gender status” were known as mukodo dako. They were treated as women and were permitted to marry other men.

 

  •  In the former Kingdom o Dahomey, women could be soldiers (above) and older women would sometimes marry younger women, according to anthropologist Melville Herkovits. The Baganda. King Mwanga II, the Baganda monarch, was widely reported to have engaged in sexual relations with his male subjects.

  • Jesuit working in Southern Africa in 1606 described finding ‘‘Chibadi, which are Men attired like Women, and behave themselves womanly, ashamed to be called men”.
  •  
  • In the early 17th century in present-day Angola, Portuguese priests Gaspar Azevereduc and Antonius Sequerius encountered men who spoke, sat and dressed like women, and who entered into marriage with men. Such marriages were ‘‘honored and even prized”.
  •  
  • In the Iteso communities, based in northwest Kenya and Uganda, same-sex relations existed amongst men who behaved as and were socially accepted as women.
  •  
  • Same-sex practises were also recorded among the Banyoro and the Langi.
  •  
  • In pre-colonial Benin, homosexuality was seen as a phase that boys passed through and grew out of.
  •  
  • There were practises of female-female marriages amongst the Nandi and …
  •  
  • Kisii of Kenya, as well as the
  •  
  •  
  • the Igbo of Nigeria,
  •  
  • the Nuer of Sudan and
  •  
  • the Kuria of Tanzania.
  •  
  • Among Cape Bantu, lesbianism was ascribed to women who were in the process of becoming chief diviners, known as isanuses.

The next time you harrass or gaslight any lgbqia+ person with the bible, according to white jesus, remember this post. Because, unless you are stoning all the females in your familiy who are not virgins; on their wedding nights, as the bible commands, according to white jesus, you are a flaming hypocrite. I do not suppose you have a monopoly on grace now. Do you? Realtalk ..’✍🏿

Evil has no color and evil is smart. This post is to raise awareness and troubleshoot solutions. Not anarchy and mischief. Live and let live. I do not care what your orientation, colour, class, or creed is. Respect is a two way street.

For real thou. If you are going to be self righteous, holy and pious, why lose the argument by throwing childish tantrums when facts say otherwise?

Then, run off like a cry baby. Lets have a grown up conversation like adults.

Maybe if some of our inept African leaders were not consumed with looting the treasury with greed we might have some funds left to build schools and institutions of higher learning, for real history; unlike mental slavery from bad religion.

Very mature indeed ..’ ✍🏿🙏🏿

Structured institutional racism explained. When will it stop?

All who think #blm is hijacked are misguided. Black communities have intersections, globally; overtly or covertly.

Wakeup! If African communites could solely end racism and oppression, they would have, by now. Inept, corrupt leaders, and ignorance, stalled that.

Hence, why African communities, need allies co-operatively, in the #diaspora ..’ – #In14Ways

The Selfie That Went Viral #Aremuorin #LindaIkeji #MercyfulGrace #ICantBreathe

Written by Aremuorin

Thank you #LindaIkeji❤👈🏿.

An innocent, red carpet, selfie moment. Then, selfie went viral. I am here ..’ – Aremuorin ✍🏿🙏🏿

God instructed me to do it. I felt his presence after the ignorant fake xtains attacked me verbally at that award ceremony in London for my hair.

I was booked to perform there and someone blocked all my awards from that event. I laugh at the narcissism now. Never needed it.

It was an aftermath selfie I posted on my instagram @Aremuorin (See new IG page @IAmAremuorin). The only viral pic from the bookers event.

The event organiser, allegedly, told photographers not to take my pic on the red carpet. I was avoided like a plague on that red carpet by them.

But see how God shut them up.

Was offerred no stipends and sang on an empty stomach watching everyone after; eat, their main course, and desserts, plus drinks, while I starved my eyes out, dehydratingly.

Worst night ever booked as an artiste! God did me good ooo with justice in the end. Who said there is no God! Please, do it again; dear God. Fight for me. Shalom !!!

My red carpet selfie went viral. I will never forget. God can not be mocked.
Touch not my annointed.

Aremuorin For God❤👈🏿

Cognitive Dissonance Vs #Toxic #Masculinity: #Lgbtqia+ #Aremuorin #LHHH #MercyfulGrace

Written by Aremuorin

Love And Hippop did a great job bringing this to light. Utter respect to the producers and cast. God bless you. Miles & Milan’s relationship journey was a FIRST for “Love & Hip Hop”. #ProudTogether #LHHH

Broadly speaking, from experience. This is my take. I say this to those in the closet proverbially. So you are street, flying the hipop flag, which is about realness, but you are gay/bi, in the closet. Explain that part of the bull sh*t I missed. All that tough exterior, but broken, inside. Who is the butt of the joke? This is indicative of our black communities. It is not right. Bucking!!!I feel for you if this is who you are. Give it to God. Lives are destroyed and broken behind this fassad. It is an insidious unhealthy contradiction. Especially, if you are a homophobic, downlow, black man. I love my #lgbtqia+ life. Read a book. Educate your mind. Get it out of mental slavery and religious dogma according to white jesus. Free your soul. Live. There are many gangstars caught up in this prison. In their mind, they believe; nobody knows. So sad. It is time. Love is love. Everybody knows.Miles & Milan’s relationship journey was a FIRST for “Love & Hip Hop”. #ProudTogether #LHH.

Scattered applause🤣🤷🏿‍♂️ after a performance. Is that good or bad? #Aremuorin #LiveMusic #OblivionEp

Written by Aremuorin


Found this songwriting workshop footage, I attended, a decade ago; performing my first penned, song How Is Life“. 

The scattered applause at the end had me ambivalent and insecure about my singing for years ..’

Watch “Follow Your Dreams: “How Is LIfe” Unplugged”.


An uplugged (stripped) version. Wao! Early morning singing, no warm ups.

So, I cruised through the song, rather than letting rip of my vocal cords. I did that regrettably, once before, due to poor music inductrination and racial peer pressure.

It cost me a lucrative major record deal among other things like racial trauma and ptsd. So, no! Not again. Beyond the pain, and making lemonade out of my lemons, I have performed this song, numerous time’s live at Ronnie Scotts.

It’s a cathartic favourite to play at jam sessions, with the house band, when asked to perform my self-penned songs. I’ve written hundreds of holistic  cathartic songs for my music therapy journey to overcome narcolepsy & depression. The remixes are just as cool.

Been always iffy about the acoustic version🧐. I nearly deleted it several times. It was one of the rare moments I observed on film, I was a Tom Girl and unique. I hated it for years till I embraced my individuality (uniqueness). The very african consciousness (Osumare) I was demonised for .

Everyone should. This opened my eye into the world of toxic masculinity in some men. Particularly, in some black men and why they are the way they are. Escuse the digression🧘🏿‍♂️. Scattered applause🤣🤷🏿‍♂️ after a performance. Is that good or bad? What do you think? Leave me your thoughts❤👈🏿 ..’ ✍🏿🙏🏿

US Police Officer Derek Chauvin Charged With Third-Degree ..’ – #In14Ways #GeorgeLoyd #ICantBreath #Aremuorin

Written By Aremuorin Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd 1st Degree Murder requires both intent and premeditation.

 


They can’t prove intent. 2nd Degree Murder requires only intent. They can’t PROVE intent. 3rd Degree Murder requires reckless or negligent behavior.

This charge is the smart way to go. If you go for 1st or 2nd and lose, you CAN’T RETRY HIM. Cast light on it. Say it loud and wear it proud ..’ 🧘🏿‍♂️✍🏿🙏🏿

American #History That We Don’t Hear in #School. #ICantBreath #MaryCantyMerrill #Aremuorin

Written by Mary Canty Merrill

I cannot endure yet another round of planned cross-country racial justice protests. Black folks have protested for years, and here we are in 21st century U.S.A. still protesting and still being slaughtered like animals.


NOTHING will change until white supremacist systems are dismantled. Yet, we already know the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house. There is no safety for Black people on these shores.

1. Lincoln believed white people were the superior race.

2. Gandhi hated black Africans. 3. The CIA introduced crack/cocaine into inner-cities across the U.S.

4. The FBI actively sabotaged and dismantled the Black Power Movement, the American Indian Movement, and the Chicano Movement but the KKK is still alive and well today.

5. The father of modern gynecology (James Marion Sims) experimented and tortured black women during slavery for his findings.

6. In 1999 a jury found that Loyd Jowers had participated in a conspiracy to kill Martin Luther King Jr., and that “governmental agencies” (namely the FBI and military) were party to the conspiracy.


7. In the Tuskegee experiments, the U.S. gave STDs and other diseases, including syphilis, to unknowing black men.

8. Japan was already in line to surrender when the U.S. bombed Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

9.The US created the Taliban to oppose the Soviet Union.

10. Native Americans had to register to become American.

11. Black Panthers once watched over the police to prevent unjust arrests and beatings.

12. Native American children were forcibly taken from their parents and enrolled in government run “boarding schools” which stripped them of their culture by shaving their hair and virtually whitewashing them. The government also used the children as a tool of leverage against their parents.

13. Black people were in zoos.

14. Gay white plantation owners used to rape the slave men in front of the slave’s wives, children, and friends. They used this method to deter the slaves from revolting or any other unwanted acts.

15. Plantation owner would make a “deal” with the hardest working male slave to bore a set amount of children and he will be set free. Creating the stereotype of black men leaving and abandoning their children.

16. Harriet Tubman’s first husband, a freed man, tried to discourage Harriet’s mission to free as many slaves as she could by threatening to turn her over.

17. The U.S. has been responsible for almost every major conflict of the last one hundred years and interfered in the others almost always for drugs or oil.

When Religions Conflict #Love ..’ – #In14Ways #Lgbtqia #Aremuorin

Written by Aremuorin

The truth can not lie because love is the truth. You can lie but – ‘Love, will take over ..’ – Aremuorin

Did you know that some religious people are the worst hypocrites you’d ever meet? According to the xtain faith, sex out side marriage is a sin.

Yet; half the human race accept this as a norm. In fact; you are made to feel awkward; otherwise if you aren’t participating.

These are the same group of people who would enrage disspeakable hate towards gays and prostitutes – even thou; Jesus’s Nan, was a whore and his best mate. Explain.

It really ticks me off, in biblical and mammoth proportions ..’ Brings a new meaning to, sweep around your own front door, before you sweep around mine!

Read Isiaiah 64:6 “All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.”

They always skip this part and rush straight to the condemnation and judgment part; of the gospels when the fundamentals; are loving your neighbours, as yourself. The greatest of all their theologies and religions. Thank you Jesus for the cross and repentance by faith. We are made whole again. I believe.

No condemnation. Salvation is free! Freely it was given ..’ That’s what love would do. God Is Love. Believe. Amen. #MercyfulGrace #Bad #Religion This post is to highlight the particular antiquated traditional practises against Africans in the African community.

Watch more on my recent facebook live about homophobia and bad religion – here.

There is more #sister ..’ – #In14Ways #Aremuorin #MercyfulGrace

Saw an interesting post by a page from a young black lady’s perspective on white supremacy by the name Neith Night ..’ So I responded:

Ok. L💕v💕 this post except a few holes in her theory. LGBTQIA black men can procreate if they choose just as much as straight folks can opt out of procreation if they choose.

The Eve gene is not news to some. So, enough of that mis-information. It makes this post appear incredulous – besides great job.

I admire her energy. Just wished she opened her mind a bit more. The gay agenda is not just about the black man.

The gay agenda is about luciferianism. Black people worship lucifer too. Married black men and women with kids are lgbtqia too.

They just live in the closet, on the downlow; busy cross infecting the community (world) with std’s, in denials. That is a huge-grave concern.

Black men and women are still practising slavery: selling their own kind for cash. Cogent undisputable facts!Black men are burning the state treasury after looting stimulant cheques donated to the poor by billionaires in their country.

Perspective, and dialogue is key with certain narratives. As an lgbtqia ally, I find some of her video remarks about the lgbtqia, offensive.

Now, love is not a doormat, but the highest vibration of all. God is love. I am not saying all white folks are angels, cuz I live racism too, but my black folks are no angels either.

First, folks like her need to stop fear mongering, and sterring division. She plays in to the narrative of a scary black man.

She said – “WE CAN NOT LOVE THEM OUT OF THIS. WE CAN NOT PRAY THEM OUT OF THIS”. I disagree.

Let each person bring what they have💞. Positive Solution, not war. Mediation, not anarchy.

So, try and love, or pray that, out of

exisistence, first ..’ When we fix this, and self love – they will love us unreservedly; but you can not give what you do not have.

Stevie Wonder – “Only love can conquer hate”.

Watch her video I saw here.
