"After the death of his father, when Malcolm was six, he lacked male role models and was dominated by strong women - in particular, his tyrannical mother. He feared women and his early sexual experiences with girls were mostly unsatisfactory."Gee, how on earth do they get these juicy details? Was Malcolm X homosexual? Anything is possible. But neither the facts nor history bear out the sloppy, campy, gossip mongering that Tatchell spreads in an attempt to tarnish the character of a revered black American. Here's a pretty good rebuttal written by Jamaican Melody Walker, who called the story a "muckracking peice of cognitive dissonance."

Rewriting black history?
A British gay activist has decided to sexually impunge the legacy of prolific Black civil rights activist Malcolm X by irresponsibly repeating that Malcolm X was homosexual. Peter Tatchell, most known for the outrageous antics he employs to force "gay rights" issues, --especially with AIDS myths-- wrote a column for the liberal paper London Guardian in which he takes his obsession(s) to new lows. Considering that Tatchell actively campaigns to lower the age of sexual consent in the UK to 14, advocates for the unrestricted flow of tainted homosexual blood into blood banks,and thinks that there is nothing "obscene" about porn he is hardly one to rewrite history. But, such minds seem never to comprehend the utter darkness through which they attempt to see the world and even worse still --change the world. Shockingly enough Tatchell uses as "evidence" of Malcolm's "latent homosexuality the absent father, overbearing mother theory. I thought gays had kicked that out with the '73 APA overthrow! Opines Tatchell:
