Is it Just Me or Does Tyler Perry Have Gay Face?

I mean, I don’t consume ANY of Tyler Perry’s media. I’ve never been interested in Madea’s European Vacation or whatever wacky scenario Perry has her in now and I’ve never watched Tyler Perry’s House of Payne. I have, however, seen him on those TNT commercials for the show while I’ve been watching the NBA Playoffs. Anyway, that’s when I started noticing it. It’s just the way he’s looking at me. I mean, I can just feel it, then he speaks and it’s all wrong….

And then the commercial comes on like 5 times each game, so there’s no escaping it. No, Tyler will not be ignored. It’s pretty crazy. And call me what you like, but the fact that homey is known for impersonating a large woman in drag, duddent help matters either.

SMH. Snow see that jaw piece is waaay too skrong and that smile is a liiiil bit too comfortable.

Don’t ask me why, it’s just never been my thing, never liked it. I didn’t think Wanda with Jaime Foxx was funny. I didn’t much care for Sheneneh with Martin. I mean, I just don’t like that shit. It just aint right, at least not for me. And bottom line, something in this boy’s eye lets me know that he aint right, either.

See what I’m saying? The boy aint right in the EYE!!! My understanding, thanks to some ladies I know with gay guy friends, is that dude has “Gay Face”. What is Gay Face?

That is Gay Face.

That is Gay Face. And oddly enough, oh yes:

Datz GAY FACE(s) too!!!!!!!!!

Well, you know what it is. It’s just that little something about a dude’s face, expression, I don’t know… something that let’s you know that he may be driving off from the ladies tees, swanging from the other side of the plate or helping his boys over the fence.

And taking into account his Gay Face, then reading my man’s wikipedia profile, I’m not so sure which squad homey is on. First off, they talk about his “daddy issues”, which by itself isn’t a big deal, but we know what that could mean and yes “abuse” was discussed. Then they talk about how homey has been suspected of being gay for a minute and that he had been relatively “mummm” about the topic. Ok. THEN homey came out with the oh so classic “I’m heterosexual because I’m a Christian” rhetoric. Oh, is how it works?

At any rate, I asked my good friend Chris Rock what he thought about Tyler Perry’s masculinity and this is what he had to say:

Right, he’s not sure either.

  4. < ![CDATA[@Lake - Yeh mang this is well known in the (ahem) Black community lol I like Madea too, but Tyler Perry is as sweet as it gets. Part of that whole -proud-Black-men-gay-movement thing going on...or sumthin like that. All ima say is Im kinda nervous about steppin foot in cities like 'Hot'-lanta. :-P]]>

  6. < ![CDATA[I don't think he's gay, everyone has their own look about them. Maybe he's just in touch with his fem side......quit being haters......]]>

  7. < ![CDATA[Why is it an issue if Tyler is gay or not?? Maybe he is and maybe he's not - WHO CARES?! What you should focus on is the kind of person Tyler is. Tyler has given to the black community over and over again. Tyler was homeless but had enough inside strength from within and from GOD to make it where he is today. Be thankful of this because he is not selfish or selfcentered. With his success, he has blessed many in need. We need more people in the world like him. You have all these rich folks and many of them don't give back to the community. I personally don't think he's gay but it wouldt bother me if he was. Shoot, becareful what you say - you may need his help one day. You probably wouldn't have issues w/him if he was going to give you $$$ would you? Honor the man for what he does for his people and stop stabbing this great man in the back. He has a heart for everyone and helps the people that need help that are actually helping themselves. Stop trying to bring a brother down with things that don't even matter. And Tyler, if you are reading this, just keeping doing what you do and don't let a few rotten apples change who you are or the great support you give to the needy and seniors. There are many many people that appreciate and love you, and Im one of them. God Bless.]]>

  8. < ![CDATA[I DON'T THINK TYLER IS GAY. SOME PEOPLE HAVE THEIR OWN WAY OF BECOMING SUCCESSFUL AND HE IS AN AXEMPLE OF THAT. OFTEN THE PEOPLE WHO QUESTIONS PEOPLE'S GAY OR NOT GAY AND ACT LIKE THEY VERY 'NOT GAY' END UP TO BE BIG GAYS. SO I THINK TYLER IS VERY TENDER BUT NOT GAY. HE IS VERY CLOSE TO THE ROLE OF MADEA AND SOMETIMES ACT LIKE HER. IF HIS HEART IS CLOSE TO THE LORD OUR SAVIOUR, THAN HE MUST KNOW WHAT THE LORD WANT OF HIM. IF HE DOES THAT, THEN YALL NEED TO SHUTUP YOUR BIG IGNORANT MOUTH AND RESPECT THE MAN. HE AINT SELLING DRUGS U KNOW!!!!!!! PEACE MR TYLER PERRY, MAY THE LORD OF ALL LORDS GRAND U WITH MORE LOVE, IDEAS AND PEACE OF MIND]]>

  9. < ![CDATA[I think Tyler Perry probably is gay. He just has that face. Even so, it's fine. I'll still love and appreciate all he has done. He is very creative and it seems to me that he uses his criticism as fuel to get even better- can't be mad at that!. So go ahead Tyler do what you do. It's cool!!]]>

  10. < ![CDATA[I don't care if he is gay or not he is talented. But I do have a problem with the Brother saying he would never sell out to the MAN .. THE BROWNS WILL BE AIRING NEXT WEEK ON CHANNEL 13 OWN BY VIACOM THE SAME MASTERS THAT OWN BET.. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT. DO THEY GET A CUT OF YOUR MOVIES TOO !!!]]>

  11. < ![CDATA[STOP HATTTTTTTTTTIIIIIIINNNNNNGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!! Get a life! Mind your business! Do you sleep in the bed with Tyler Perry at night? If not, you have no business proclaiming what this man is or is not doing and it is none of your business. Find you some business! My boyfriend found this site and wanted me to read it because he thinks he may be homosexual too. I told him the same thing. Leave Michael Jackson alone too! ;D]]>

  12. please stop and get your life together like tyler perry did then you will have something to talk about.

  13. Wake up…the man is gay and period! The dogmatic ignorance around this subject is frightening. This is why the HIV rate among straight black women is off the hook…they are so willing to say that a man is in touch with his feminine side and not see a dude for what he is…I do not care how lonely you might get do not sleep with a man that is in touch with his feminine side not matter what his ethnicity is …else you might be signing your death certificate for real.

    odds I do not: appreaciate Blacks. Whom say there speaking
    for me: my sex life is my own.
    Tyler your talented forget the
    trash!!!

    This blog should be asking the question of why do Black male actors have to dress up like “women” to be “successful” in Hollywood film?
    Making strong Black male “blockbuster” actors effeminate is a part of the systemic destruction of the Black male identity. And to the men who responded in offense to the wierd vibe Tyler Perry and other drag characters produced by Hollywood’s sellout of masculinity–YOU ARE CORRECT in sensing the awkward & uncomfortable feeling. It is an affront to masculinity so to subconsciously approve that it is okay to negotiate your manly ways.

    Just think about it, almost every top (or not) paid Black male actor that has made it in crossover success in film has done either a Gay role or has done drag. Naming a few…

    1. Denzel Washington (Academy Award, Best Actor, Training Day)

    2. Will Smith (Seven Degrees Of Separation, his 1st film, so he got his gay role out the way and he was set for his career.)

    3. Jamie Foxx (In Living Color as Wanda, he too got his gay character out the way ahead of his career so he could get the Academy Award, Best Actor for biopic “Ray”)

    4. Wesley Snipes (Two Wong Foo… as Noxeema)

    5. Martin Lawrence ( Big Mama’s House as “Big Mama” after his sitcom in the 90s & Bad Boys–with WILL SMITH he had a “nervous breakdown” and then played “Big Mama”)

    6. Shawn Wayans/ Damon Wayans/ Marlon Wayans
    (All these guys, esp. Shawn Wayans– Scary Movie 1&2– is suspect gay or did gay roles. Damon & In Living Color co-star David Alan Grier did that skit called “MEN ON FILM.” And Marlon in 90s movie For The Love Of Money, starred with Damon in a scene as two gay men.)

    7. Tyler Perry…Nuff said.

    (8. And Caucasian actor who was on ‘In Living Color’ back in the day with the Wayans crew…Jim Carrey did drag character Venus De Milo. So the rules apply to the non-black as well.)

    Let me explain why Denzel Washington is on this list. In Training Day he did get “shot in the butt.” And if you know archetypal symbols, a gun is nothing but a penis, bullets are sperm and firing is…well you get the picture. And getting shot in the ass is considered “buffoonery” too.

    Just think about it. Madea / “Mother Dear” / “Big Mama” is the staple of the Black family, she is revered. To present Mother Dear’s in drag is defamatory. And by the way…”Mother’s Day” is coming up…and that is celebrated as a holiday/ HOLY-DAY…

    Call it entertainment if you want to. But that would be foolish.

  19. Ya definitely not a fan of this type of ish

    It is so sad to read someone’s message saying that yes tyler perry is gay and that is why hiv and aids is so high among the black african american women. Wrong Wrong Wrong…do your research. What you said was so ignorant on your part… and i am sending this reply to kww again kww……hiv and aids is high among african american women yes but not because of gay men it has more to do with drug users whom have shared needles for many years and it has been spreading……….please people stop trying to put all the blame on gay…what about married men sleeping with other women whom are lesbians or sleeping other men or boys or lilttle girls so many ways for this to spread but you are in your comfort zone by saying its because of the gay life why this is here…wrong again….first of all research is so important it has been noted that the disease itself is linked to monkey’s and it just goes from there…..kww kww kww read a book do research……..get the knowledge and then speak……………get the facts and then go get some more and then you will retract the ignorance that is coming out of your mouth…….

  21. i still think he has a strong Gay Face
