DL Overload!!!!

This week I’ve been receiving the same email 10 times from TEN different people. It’s a movie clip I believe from Duke Media called “Invisible”. It’s about a Black doctor on the DL. Unless you’ve been under a rock somewhere, DL is an abbreviation for “Down Low”, which is slang for a dude that lives a heterosexual life but sleep with men in secret.

I don’t know about y’all but this DL crap has worn me out. Black folks act like this is something new, when in fact it’s not. It’s been around since the beginning of time and it’s not just Black men on the DL, it’s all men and for that matter women too. To hear Michael Baisden tell it, all women are bisexual, but I digress.

I remember when I first started reading E. Lynn Harris , I found the notion of men sleeping with men fascinating and scandalous. The only person I knew at the time that slept with both men and women was this guy name Chino. He had a girlfriend, but he would go up on Mack and trick for cash. He claimed that he only let them give him a BJ, yeah whatever. I know I’m digressing again! I credit E. Lynn to waking Sistah’s up about the DL, not this JL King fool who’s made a fortune off being on the DL. I bought his ex-wife book but I have yet to read it.

Hearing all this DL stuff will make you extra paranoid. You’ll be checking your man’s underwear, ease dropping when he’s talking on the phone to his boy, getting mad when he goes to shoot hoop, etc. Sistah’s can’t keep their men away from other woman, so it’s impossible to keep him from a man if he swings that way. The only thing I can say is to stay on guard and protect yourself. When I was single, I would flat out ask a Brotha if he was on the DL, not like he would confess, but I just wanted him to know I was aware. I’ve had a couple of guys I stopped dating because I wasn’t so sure and I was right on one of them, but that’s a loooongggg story, perhaps another time.
