If Real Men Suck Dick for a Billion Dollars, would you?
There’s a lot you would do for a billion dollars. The real question is what wouldn’t you do for a billion dollars. Money’s coercive nature makes you reconsider what you wouldn’t otherwise do. Getting up at 5 in the morning with a hangover. Working at that fast food joint and serving people borderline poisonous food. Tolerating an abusive manager. Taking a gig with that annoying snob of a client with a six-figure net worth.
Money is the tool–not the motive. Money is the symbol of freedom in a capitalist society.
More money= More Freedumbs
More money to go on vacation. More money to get that boob job. More money to pursue those dreams of being a producer with the best gear in your town. Everything costs money. And if we can get our hands on money, we can buy anything — even people.
We all suck dick.
There’s a lot of things we would never do for free. Hell. People resort to murdering their family for insurance money before doing sex work. Ask any man if they would rather suck their homeboy’s dick or kill them to save their mother’s life. Sucking dick is the epitome of degradation for heterosexual men. To suck dick is to submit. To be anything but heterosexual is to sacrifice manhood. Heterosexual men doing anything remotely feminine is seen as “gay.” Behaviors associated with women are seen as weak and undesirable. This is where homophobia and misogyny intersect.
Try this experiment
Go in a room full of men and ask; “Would you suck dick for a billion dollars?” Proceed to observe the stages of grief:
Hell naw man! That’s that gay shit! I would NEVER.
Man if any man came up to me asking me to suck his dick, that’s disrespectful! I’m knocking him out! I’ll kill that nigga and take the billion dollars!
I mean… how long you gotta suck it though? Is there a confidentiality agreement?
Damn but I really gotta suck it though? I can’t just do something else for the billion dollars?
I mean nobody gotta know. Fuck it.
The Power of Suggestion
Most people will hesitate to answer. The first few will answer. Everyone else will probably wind up agreeing to the consensus. A man will say “no” in one room and say “yes” in another if you ask him again next week.
What’s the point of Real Men Suck Dick?
To make you question the arbitrary definition of a “Real Man.”
To make you question how money influences your everyday decisions.
Cash cow artists in the music industry sell themselves out everyday. Changing their music, their values, and more… handing over their rights to labels for a million dollar deal… But God forbid a real nigga gotta suck some dick out here for a billion dollars.
A billion dollars.
That’s 1,000 millions. Think about it.Post Views: 4,731

Inspired by Thelonious Monk’s Jazz Standard “Round Midnight,” Harlem Round Midnight Intersects the Nightlife of a Working Class Father and Unemployed Stepfather in Harlem.
Joey Alexander’s performance of ‘Round Midnight truly captures the melancholic aura that haunts Harlem’s nightlife. Harlem ‘Round Midnight depicts how one can only dream of day when surrounded by addiction and class struggle.
Almonte’s visuals highlight the true protagonists of a capitalist society. The lumpen proletariat. Or the Rag class. The unemployed, the homeless, the sex workers, the drug addicts, the hustlers, the starving artists. A story told in this perspective humanizes these people that we often scoff at. We can see them with dreams and families. They strive toward happiness just as anyone else, pummeled by the circumstances they were born in.
Here’s the poem written by Jeffrey Almonte
Before the bright and early,
the darkest dreams more punctual.
The early bird catches the worm
but not if devoured in the owl’s hour.
Round Midnight’s Rennaisance:
beat fathers carry bags on their eyes
and veins in their hands blink
to flush the heat of day.
Suitcase soldiers off the crosstown convoy
C.O.’s pass and CO gas
hisses in the face of homeless veterans
as the convo leaves.
A loud stench and a sour sight
kushion the jagged coasts of K2 Island
While half-conscious coastguards taste cracked cement.
Pocket full of dreams;
wallet full of nightmares.
Harmonies of 8 bars,
measures by the kilo
symphonies of car horns
at clicking heels.
Chorus of left-panned
orgasms under the bridge of pay-for-play.
Right ear deafened by the call of wives
and abandoned children.
Sons leave while the
sun grieves another work day
to rise…once again
above the leaves
… of fathers–
beat dead by day–
Some dreams never end.
The night sweats faces–
in evaporated moonlight.Post Views: 2,378

The same thing you would do if you had a straight son.
Having a gay son is always made a spectacle
As if preparing for your child’s potential queerness is on par with being diagnosed with some terminal illness.
It’s not a tragedy to have a gay son. Not an inconvenience. Not some hypothetical hard premise to make small talk about at a dinner table. People are gay. People are straight. And all sorts of in-betweens.
What would I do if I had a gay son? The same thing I would do if I had a straight son.
But that’s not an interesting enough answer for you is it? Watch the satirical comedy sketch on what to do.
And enjoy the reaction people give you when you use this answer to such a silly question.Post Views: 1,868
