Stevie Wonder Says Frank Ocean And Other Homosexuals Are Misguided

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayMusic MinuteFrank OceanLGBT

steview wonder frank ocean homosexuals are confused

Aye, aye, aye!

We love you, Stevie! You are one of the GREATEST living American musicians.

But honestly, reading your recent quote regarding Frank Ocean felt like a swift kick in the croutons!

In a conversation involving Ocean's sexuality, Stevie Wonder said:

"I think honestly, some people who think they're gay, they're confused. People can misconstrue closeness for love. People can feel connected, they bond. I'm not saying all [gay people are confused]. Some people have a desire to be with the same sex. But that's them."


To imply a heterosexual loves their Cherie amour more authentically than a homosexual loves the sunshine of THEIR life is sooooo very insulting!

You can better than that, Stevie!!

We know you're a good, classy dude, but this viewpoint is offensive!

Hopefully you can rethink your position and find some higher ground, morally speaking!!

    fuck him! he has no right to speak up on others peoples sexuallity. How the fuck does he know!? go get divorced.. again!

  2. 2

    I don't really think it was that offensive. He said not every gay person is confused, just some. Which is probably true. There have been millions and millions of homosexuals, in all likely hood some of them have probably been confused about being gay. Same goes for straight people. There have been straight people who have been confused about their sexuality. It's not so simple to lump everyone as definitely gay or definitely straight. There's bound to be some confusion in there, especially when dealing with basic human emotions.

    "MORALLY" there is a word that has ZERO

  4. 4

    'MORALLY" DO you even know the definition of that word. You clearly have none, nor ethics or scruples

    i completely agree with him. i think there are people out there who are completely gay from the time they were in the womb until now. i also think there are people out there who are legitimately confused and maybe not gay at all.. perhaps just experimenting and thinking they're gay or identifying as gay for a period of time. im sure there are a lot of people who identify as gay now, who once identified as straight, and were confused about being straight - when in reality, they were gay. its ok for other people to have opinions. its not everyone elses job to modify their behaviour, censor their opinions, etc in order to not offend the delicate sensibilities of others. its our job as individuals to learn that everyone is different, people all have different perspectives and opinions, and we need to learn how to deal with those different perspectives in a responsible and mature way without trying to force other people to agree with us. and also without making people feel bad for having a differing opinion.

    Sometimes I am confused too Stevie. Smart Casper and John Travolta, now aren't they confusing as hell.

  7. 7

    As a fan of Stevie Wonder, it hurts me that someone seemingly so intuitive can have such primitive and misguided thoughts. What the hell does Stevie Wonder know about ANYONE else's sexuality than his own? I don't know about him, but my sexuality is pretty much set in stone. If he believes his sexuality is more flexible than that, it seems like he has some of his own issues to work out. This country should be centuries past this kind of shit. Truly embarrassing.

    Ey, Stevie, how's that divorce going? let me call you up about relationship advice.

  9. 9

    Oh for GOD'S SAKE!!! Here we go on the "This is gay bashing and I am the victim here!" There is nothing derogatory or demeaning about his statement whatsoever! He is simply stating that people can be confused on whether they are gay or not… and I think A LOT of people have been in that situation. Get a life and quit playing the victim; you are giving gay people a bad name! It's this kind of sh*t, along with the Chick-Fil-A protests that are just making ALL gay people look like an angry mob that will never be happy with anything.

    Wow do people even read before they curse someone out and demonize them? Figuring out if youre gay IS confusing. Sexuality as a whole is confusing. He didn't say anything hateful or mean spirited. Relax people.
    Hes right too. For example, Men in jail who think they became gay realize when they get out it was just for closeness. But then are confused as to whether that's the case or not. Are they gay or was it just for human affection?
    He said nothing wrong or ignorant. How about you look deeper besides thinking every statement that questions sexuality is hateful.

    He is stupid as well as blind apparently…what an ignorant thing to say…Can we NOT get beyond this people??? This is 2012….get an education people….really.

    Dang, you can't say anything about GAY people without a backlash! What is this world coming to?!

  13. 13

    Some gay people are confused, just as some straights are confused. This is actually a good statement considering the generation he is from.

  14. 14

    You've got to be kidding me if you think that was offensive. He said SOME, he thinks maybe SOME people misconstrue closeness with sexual feelings, and that's true! SOME people do. Straight people do it too, so why wouldn't gays? That's just human nature. Confusion. Sex and romance is very complex. He also said, Not All confuse it, some really do prefer the same sex… and, he's right!

  15. 15

    Just as I have the right to say and feel how ever I want, so does he. He didn't say anything to attack the gay community, and I'm pretty sure he wasn't trying to offend anyone. Stop being so judgmental Perez.

  16. 16

    For someone that claims to a liberal, this is a pretty foolish comment to make. Whether he is misquoted or out of context, most liberals respect gay people and believe in the ability of someone of the same sex to love someone of the same sex. They don't question if that person is confused or not. This is a man who fundraises for Obama. For I were the Obama campaign, I would sit him down and have a talk.

    Everyone has the right to their own opinion. If God wanted gay love he would have not made Eve & Adams privates a perfect match. Gays cannot create life.. ottom line, if your gay then you don't care about living right. Im not perfect, but to slap God in the face and go against nature. God can love and heal all. You must repent " go and sin no more"

    Sodomy is a sin, not natural, not productive,

  19. 19

    The reality is that all gay people are confused! Stevie Wonder almost had it right, and as always Perez has it all wrong!

  20. 20

    Re: kandycane
    "Sodomy is a sin, not natural, not productive,"

    Says the girl with a stripper name. Don't act like you don't use it as a form of birth control, rolling around in the backseats of cars…

    Re: kandycane – Your comments make me want to go get pregnant, have an abortion, and then have anal sex afterwards.

    If you are sure of being gay or lesbian, good for you, but there are bi ppl out there which Frank Ocean said he was btw Perez, it's very confusing. I'm a straight woman, i love men and would never be in a committed relationship with another woman, but from time to time i'll have fun with a woman. my first sex partner was a woman. That's because i was confused as a child and now i know clearly who i am…so it does get confusing for some. just bcuz you're gay and know it does not mean there aren't other sexually confused out there…

  23. It'smetime says – reply to this


    I think he is right and I don't find his opinion offensive. He is just saying that SOME not ALL gays confuse love with closeness and that I believe can go both ways that why sometimes people divorce after been together so long because they finally accept their homosexualty.

  24. andrea says – reply to this


    My friend who is now Lesbian was VERY confused before she figured it out. She firstly said she was sraight, then bi, then realised she was gay. We all knew before her what she was because of the way she behave.

    it is true the comment he made, confusion is not only about how you physically and emotionally feel about men/women but the realisation that your family/friend/etc may judge you and many people hold back to actually come out because they are scared they will be judged negatively…

    You can easily replace his quote with the word "straight" and it would be just as effective. There's no either/or about sexuality. Some people are only attracted to the same sex, some people are only attracted to the opposite, but sexuality runs along a spectrum with many different degrees of sexuality, rather than being something which forces people to decide which team to play on.

  26. 26

    This guy is a blind ass.

  27. 27

    Call me stupid but I'm confused as to what's offensive with what he said. It'd be one thing if he said ALL gay people were confused…but he said SOME. It happens. Some people are born knowing exactly who they're attracted to and some are more confused about it. A friend of mine (who was straight in high school, lesbian in college and now considers herself bi) likes to say, sexuality is fluid, there's no black or white. So yes, I'm sure some people who consider themselves gay may decide differently later, just like some people who consider themselves straight will.

    I am gay, and what he said wasn't offensive. He said it light heartly and genuinely. Shut up, Perez. Too be honest, I have to agree. The world is pushing "sex, sex, sex" and some people honestly don't know how to tell the truth from the lie. I believe real gays are born gay, then I believe there are those who don't know any better and they choose to be gay. I believe if America and the world weren't so sex driven and media whores, then the gay issue wouldn't be an issue. We, the Americans of the United States of America, have forever criticalized the future of homosexuals because of our desire of "we need it and we need it NOW" mood.

    He's right, gays are messed up in the head. Lobotomies for all of them.

  30. Ihaveabackbone says – reply to this


    Seriously, can you stop trying to bend what people say to make them look bad. Perez' blog is really getting ridiculous. Everybody has the right to their own opinion and what he said really wasn't a slam on gays. Whoever wrote this blog entry needs to get over their hate.

  31. 31

    Anne Heche. Lindsay Lohan. John Travolta….get what Stevie was saying? There are some people who have been in gay OR straight relationships for long periods of time, but have now settled into just one sex. That's controversial to say? How many college girls can admit to being very close to a girlfriend and "something happens"? Again, is that wrong to say? Not every gay person is 100% gay nor is every straight person 100% straight.

  32. 32

    Yeah I also don't see what all the drama is about. Stevie is obviously not homophobic and I don't believe he meant to be offensive..sounds to me like he may have had an experience, like the close bond he talks about….but even if not you can tell he's not anti gay.

    Kinda annoys me that some reporters feel the need to ask every (usually black) artist how they feel about Frank Ocean's sexuality. Who cares, it's old news now and there will always be ppl who don't accept it and we will never change their minds so how about we just move on!

    I bet there are some homosexuals who are confused jaut as there are heterosexual people who are confused.

  34. TJ says – reply to this


    He said he thinks some people are sexually confused. I have a relative who for quite some time thought he was straight. He was confused, but fortunately he recognized his confusion, realized he was making a mistake, and is now much happier. As humans we are attracted in varying degrees to both sexes, and the process of settling down - if one ever does - to a particular primary attraction can be confusing. Now, if Mr. Wonder had said Mr. Ocean wasn't gay, just confused, that would be quite offensive and ignorant. But he didn't say that.

    Beautiful photos… Can't wait for another more…

    What i do not understood is actually how you are not really much more well-liked than you might be right now. You're very intelligent. You realize thus significantly relating to this subject, produced me personally consider it from so many varied angles. Its like women and men aren't fascinated unless it is one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs nice. Always maintain it up!
