Antoine Dodson was, at one point, an internet sensation. Exactly how, I haven’t got a clue. Quite honestly, I’m not even sure who this guy is. All I know is that he now seems to want to be the new poster child for the ex-gay movement. Maybe he should sit down and talk to Alan Chambers and John Paulk before committing to that.
Dodson apparently announced that he had become a “True Chosen Hebrew Israelite descendant of Judah,” and that he is no longer gay and now wants to have a wife. He told this all to HuffPost Live host Alicia Mendez when he tried to explain how he became ex-gay.
Dodson stated “It’s not praying the gay away because it can be lifted. If you really want to change your life, and just get rid of it, then you can. And that’s what I’m doing. I’m not saying I don’t have the memories of my past, because I do, and I see it everyday in my mind. But I’m trying to move away from that and become a better person. That’s all.”
Dodson also noted that he had always been attracted to the “art of a woman”, and claimed that he mistakenly “tried to actually be that instead of being with that.” He also called his gay days “dumb,” and stated “When you get older and you get mature, things in your life change.”
He claims that he wants “people to see my past. I want them to see me and see what I was delivered from.”
Apparently he was delivered from being bisexual. That might seem like a leap, but it is amazing how few people ever bother to notice that there is a middle ground between being gay and being not-gay, and that is called bisexuality. Odds on are that Dodson, given his attraction to ‘the art of a woman’ was bisexual and not gay.
Take, for instance, Gillian Anderson of X-Files fame. She is bisexual, but mostly straight. She hasn’t dated a woman in ages, but admits that she is still bisexual. The same holds true for Cynthia Nixon of Sex and the City fame. Nixon is bisexual, but mostly lesbian. She dated and even had a long term relationship with men before settling down and marrying a woman.
Seems to me that Dodson is more worried about trying to be famous again than actually being true to himself.
