I will Never Forgive Him.

Hello my good people of blogville, how are y'all doing?

I'm supposed to be watching the Spain-Chile match, but it's so boring...just like the Portugal-Brazil one. Boring.

BORING.

Anyway boring don't matter as long as you get the points, yes?

Anyhow anyhow, something has had me worried for a few days now...I'm gonna tell you all about it, and then you're gonna give your opinions, how's that?

So you know how, when you're browsing; one thing you're reading leads to the next, and to the next like that like that?

Yeah so somehow, I stumbled upon John Fashanu's wikipedia page.

Let me first say this.

The guy annoys me. I don't know why, He just does. I remember back in Nigeria when I used to watch that his show 'Deal Or No Deal Nigeria' on Africa Magic. He used to annoy me.

Anyway so I again moved on and stumbled upon his brother's name. Justin Fashanu. Handsome young man.

The guy committed suicide.

He was the first only footballer to ever come out as gay. Like really. As of 2010

He was accused of sexually molesting a seventeen year old boy, and so he committed suicide.

I dont think he committed suicide because of that incident. I think a number of things must have led up to it.

First of all, what shocked me the most was that the guy came out at all.

I mean, it was 1990, and homosexuality was a very very big deal then.

Another thing that really shocked me was the fact that his idiot brother, John, publicly disowned him.

Like he actually disowned him publicly.

This is someone who moved around a lot with him when they were kids, because their parents split up. And y'all know how close that thing can make siblings. They only had each other.

And yet, when a little trouble came by, he was the first to disown his brother. How marvellous.

He was the first to say 'He is not my brother'.
He joined the world against his own flesh, his own blood.

I'm not saying homosexuality is right. Because I know it ain't. My Bible tells me so.

BUT.

Whatever the hell it was, whatever!

Now of course, if the guy's own family was against him, tell me, what should he have expected from the world?

His career suffered drastically, his social life, his relationship with his family, everything.

I don't blame him for committing suicide though, for what would he have done?

I cannot imagine what my sister would do that would make me disown her, or my brother.

No seriously what could she do?

sleep with my husband?
kill my father? my child?

what???

Because I don't get it. what on earth would make me disown my own blood? My own flesh? I really don't get it, and I'd very much like to know.

What could your siblings do, that would make you disown them??

leggy said...

if my sibling comes out as gay or my child says he or she is gay.i wouldnt disown him, i may not be happy but i would never disown him for that.

Myne Whitman said...

I certainly won't disown a sibling for being what/who ever they are. But killing another of my flesh and blood, hmmm...

neefemi said...

Hmmm, its easy for you to say now, my love, but anger can be bad. i feel like i wont disown anyone for that, but unless God forbid it happens to you, i think its easy to say that you won't disown them for anything. i currently feel like i hate my dad and wont forgive him for sum'n a whole lot less, so lets not pass judgement is all i'm saying though i can see your point as well

CerebrallyBusy said...

@iphy: :( yeah

@leggy: i know i wouldnt be happy but i would never disown her for that


@Myne: lol...ok maybe that was a little far-fetched.

@neefemi : hmmn ok but please try to forgive your dad ok?

First time here and I'm not happy it is, shoulda been here ages ago..
That said.. I was here,I had fun reading..
You're not alone in despising John Fashanu, I thought I was the only one..
The guy's just an ass..
I don't have siblings ; I'm an only child, I'd choose not to comment on that, but really, if your sister sleeps with your husband, would you be all that forgiving?

CerebrallyBusy said...

it would take me a while, but i wouldnt disown my own flesh and blood for anything, really.

and thanks for dropping by, please come again :)

eyah, out and proud in Nigeria is a bit risky, in a country where ordinary single parenting is still frowned upon. 1st time i'm hearing about him and his brother though RIP. I don't think I could disown my sibling, heck I find it difficult not speaking to them for even an hour, talkless of completely diswoning

CerebrallyBusy said...

they were not in Nigeria, bu yeah it was still pretty risky.

and i feel you on not talking to them for an hour lol!

miss.fab said...

That's unfortunate. I agree with Neefemi. It's easy to pass judgement on something like this, but let's be real - he wasn't the first and he won't be the last to disown his family for something like that. Not all of those people committed suicide.

I don't think I'll ever disown my family like that though

CerebrallyBusy said...
