What is worse for kids? Gay People or Gansta Rap

In a battle between the queers and Ja Rule.

Ja Rule told Complex Magazine that gays are pretty much evil and to blame for America’s problems. He wants to shift the blame society puts on rap onto the gays.

“And if it is, then we need to go step to Paramount, and fucking MGM, and all of these other motherfuckers that’s making all of these movies and we need to go step to MTV and Viacom, and lets talk about all these fucking shows that they have on MTV that is promoting homosexuality, that my kids can’t watch this shit,” he continued. “Dating shows that’s showing two guys or two girls in mid-afternoon. Let’s talk about shit like that! If that’s not fucking up America, I don’t know what is.”

GLAAD responded with a statement.

“No fair-minded person can look at JaRule’s interview with Complex Magazine and believe for one second that his children could be more harmed by what they might see on television than by the vulgarity and prejudice that comes out of their father’s mouth.”

Ja Rule received tons of negative press from both mainstream media and even within the hip hop community. What one may personally feel about homosexuality in regard to their morals and faith is up to them, but most people don’t want a rapper telling them what is right and wrong. He raps about killing people, drug dealing, and degrading women. After the negative press, he responded by claiming he was taken out of context and that he is fine with gay people. In the classic response, he basically says “I know gay people, so I must be tolerant”.

“I was taken out of context. My statement was more about where our mind state is as a people. We’re focused on the wrong things — like, our country is at war right now.”

How would you react if one of your kids told you that he or she was gay?

“That’s their own preference. I’m going to love them regardless. I have relatives that are homosexuals and, you know, they come over for Christmas, hang out. It’s something that starts with us. That’s why my album is named ‘The Mirror’ — because everybody has to look at themselves and take it upon themselves to educate. It’s my responsibility to educate my children — not the TV. I think a visual is more influential than audio, but that goes without being said. You know, that’s the world we live in and people are tight in the collar about a lot of issues. It is what it is.”

    Interesting post, thank you. Too bad Ja Rule is so square. How pioneering that he has gay relatives over for Christmas!! Wow. Shocking. What a xenophobe.

    That is so f’ed up. Not that I think we should blame things on music or television, talking about killing people is way worse then seeing gay people hold hands. In the worse possible case, kids would as a result wind up killing someone or being gay. And I don’t know about you, but I find murder way worse then homosexuality. And it’s the same dumb rationale that parents have when taking kids to rated R movies. Most parents would rather take their kids to see a slasher film than a film that has one sex scene, which is ridiculous because their kids are eventually going to have sex. Hopefully, they won’t eventually kill people. They’re just trying to avoid having an awkward conversation, which as good parents, they should have anyway.

    I think Ja Rule. doesn’t understands Nature. He doesn’t have a good head which thinks of giveing others thier right. I believe MTV is not organising a programme either for him( Ja Rule ) or his kids for goodness sake.
    I believe artistes like Ja rule just want his name to remain on the headlines, that’s all.
    I love his music b4 but I never new I was going to hate him oneday
