Magic Johnson's Son Goes Public With BF, Parents So Proud
Magic Johnson's Son Goes Public With BF, Parents So Proud
5 Hours Ago
Magic Johnson's 20-year-old son hit the Sunset Strip, hand in hand with his boyfriend ... and his parents couldn't be happier for their kid.
Earvin Johnson III -- aka EJ -- is one of Magic's 3 kids. The Lakers legend tells TMZ, "Cookie and I love EJ and support him in every way." Magic goes on, "We're very proud of him."
The feeling is mutual ... 'cause EJ told us he's been "hoping and praying" for his dad's team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, ever since Magic and his business partners took over the franchise.
He's also a huge Lakers fan ... obviously.
EJ -- who's a student at NYU -- has a close relationship with his parents. Back in August, Magic tweeted, "Thx to my son EJ for hosting me at NYU. Look forward to taking him to dinner tonight in the city."

That is great news. And I still love the fact that his biologically female wife's name is Cookie.

Is he carrying a purse? Nothing wrong with that, and girlfriend is REALLY working it!
However, someone should talk to him about the bulky fur (or faux fur) coat. Too much.
Especially on Sunset Strip!

Black gay guys seem to be on the extreme end of the spectrum. Either they're incredibly butch or extra femme. I've always lamented that Noah's Ark wasn't more successful, since it showed black gay guys who were just regular guys, not extra queeny or extra bush. Just undetectable straight-acting guys who just happened to be gay.

Wow, yet another racist generalization about a minority subset.
I know many openly gay black guys who are neither ultra masculine nor swishy feminine. Some doctors, lawyers, Ivy League scholars, a nurse, two accountants, three human resources professionals, 3 modern dancers, 4 Broadway performers, a plumber, a few rentboy/strippers and two UPS guys come to mind.
I don't know where r23 is hanging out - probably among theatric gay bar/ghetto/parade circuit revelers (which I love but realize they're not the only gay thing in town). If he sampled all the gay men throughout all the universities and different professions of America and the world he'd realize they come in all sizes, mannerisms and colors (no pun intended).

Another EJ, Elton John, isn't embarrassed about his outrageous 70's costumes. David Bowie isn't embarrassed about his androgynous get-up from the same era. Interestingly, Bowie was less masculine than Freddie Mercury, and yet, Mercury was gay, Bowie not.
Funny how that works. I guess if I were still living in the village where I was born, I'd also be a self-loathing gay person criticizing men I felt were pushing boundaries inappropriately, but I got out of there, thank God, and really don't give a shit if other men want to do whatever they want to do.

r55 people of the same political persuasion aren't carbon copies of each other. We all differ on certain issues. There are plenty of Democrats in office who are anti-choice, but that is their personal value and many of them don't push it as a political agenda, unlike our Republican colleagues.
Beatty has his personal beliefs and quite frankly, they are no more than that as he has no political power to enact laws, nor is he a vocal anti-choicer who protest outside the Supreme Court with images of dead babies.
Is this what happens when you name-drop another celebrity in your post? A potential derailing of a thread?

Gay men (I'm a gay guy myself) who act, dress and live overtly feminine, including drag queens and those like this young man, are indeed presenting a form of self loathing. That may or may not be due in part to the fact they grow up seeing so few male role models.
A gay teen or adult man who worships traditional female clothing, mannerisms, speech may be expressing himself freely, but that expression is based on a self hate, a hate for being male and a lack of respect and pride in the truth that he IS a man.
So yes, he's self loathing, but I don't necessarily think it's something to fault him for. It could be a side effect of the environment he grew up in or society at large.
Men, be proud of YOU, embrace manhood and your masculinity. Masculinity isn't about being 'butch' or a cowboy or building shit. Stop mimicking women and be yourselves. Females are not worthy of idolizing. You're equal, not sub-human.

I'm with r67. Contrast Magic's sons reaction to the paparazzi with Sean Penn's 'nigger' rant at a photographer last week. Magic's son was polite and well spoken. He was obviously raised well.

r118, the idea that Johnson would be a better parent than Penn isn't exactly a shocker.

BTW, am I being cynical, or is it possible that he felt he had no choice but to make that statement because his son was so flamboyant and out?
If he came out as a gay jock, maybe a baller, would the reaction be the same?

Maybe he made the statement because it's exactly how he feels....he loves his son and fuck what anyone else has to say about it.

He has more than 3 kids. I was a huge BB fan and I definitely remember there being at least 4. Good for their family, though. It's good to be supported.

I immediately thought he seemed like a nice kid too. Very polite to the paparazzi guy, who also treated him respectfully.
I've seen much worse from the kids of famouse parents.
He's 20 and seems mature

I know this guy and he is the most intolerable, spoiled, stuck up queen. Great his parents still love him, honestly must be harder when your son is such a flamer. But they also spoil him beyond belief. Whatever, good for all of them

The reason r56 is that this board is made up predominantly of old effeminate gay men who thankfully will die of disease or suicide soon and let the new generation craft new rules for our community.

See, I'm among the last of a dying breed. Once the ERA and gay civil rights bills have been passed, me and mine will be swept under the carpets like the blacks done to Amos, Andy, and Aunt Jemima....and that, chillun', is called power. Be it gay, black, or flowered, it always comes down to the survival of the majority.

It's scary that there is so much hate for this boy. Any gay boy with that level of security and confidence at 20 should be encouraged. It just shows how vitally important the love of family is to our well-being. Unfortunately many of us don't have that. Especially all the gurlz who are intimidated or envious of or repulsed by EJ.

I have been reading here for ages, and I have seldom seen such a disturbing thread as this. I would expect to read such smack talk on Media Take Out or Sandra Rose...perhaps even a conservative white site.
Many of you have shown a pretty dark side of the state of supporting your community in these post-homo hate days.
With friends like you.....

It's great that Johnson's son is out there and struttin' proud on Sunset with his parents support.
Meanwhile, two blocks south on Santa Monica Blvd, all the other heavyset, purse carrying black 20 something's are being ignored at Rage, Micky's, Revolver, and Here.

r84 Some men are naturally femme. It has nothing to do with "self-loathing". Just like some lesbians are naturally tom-boyish. Plus make-up and dresses are NOT inherently female. Men in the past(and till this day outside of the west) wore heels, make-up, and wigs. Look at Europe in the 1700's and back.
Your issue seems to be with women and femininity in general. If you are comfortable with your OWN masculinity you don't need to tear down femininity or the opposite sex.

One of the very first things he made clear with his announcement was that his then new wife and unborn child had tested negative.

R84 should be voted the new moral spokesman of the gay community, or at least the gay male community. So, so true!
I'm glad this kid is out and proud and that he's confident enough to be so outlandish. But yes, the over the top drag is clearly a sign of self hate.
Also, consider this: he's an obese young man and there just aren't any 'fashionable' clothes for big men. But there are for women. That being the case, he finds it easy and comfortable to buy and wear women's clothing because he can find it loose and flowing and with some style, so therein lies the attraction.
The necklaces and purses are just accessories and of course make him feel like a 'classy' lady.

PLEASE - how can acting freely the way you want to act, despite the consequences, be self-loathing?! He's celebrating his personality and is not ashamed or afraid of people thinking he's gay. And he's certainly not self-loathing of his homosexuality. Those of you that have come up with that new spin - self-loathing his "manhood" - have such a distorted view of the term.
He may disagree with YOUR definition of manhood but I don't see a man who hates the way he is or acts in any size, shape, or form.

R162, ITA. I was going to post about the very same thing. This phrase "self-loathing" is being used to frequently and freely. People are complex and can't be put into boxes. This young man is a prime example. Embracing your feminine side should not be seen as anything other than that.

This is particularly true in the African American community.
The closet has destroyed a lot of rich, talented people.
Kudos to him for unqualified support for his son, though. I'm too much of a cunt to shake my cynicism fully, but I'm glad Magic was open about his support.

R162 R163 Thank you! I have been thinking the same thing also. In fact, I will go one further. The term self loathing has been tossed around so much, it has no meaning any more. EJ is supposed to be "self loathing" because he acts like a woman. And yet how many times have we seen gay men who are naturally masculine also are called "self loathing" because they must be putting on a front? (not straight acting, that's something different, the key word being acting). Go over and check out the Gaybros thread. Ive been called self loathing because even though I am a gay man, I don't really care for disco or the old fashion musicals. If you're 100% top and never even considered getting fucked, you're self loathing. If you're all sub and can only cum with a big dick up your ass, you're self loathing. If your Saturday night is appearing in a drag show, clearly you must be self loathing, otherwise whats with the disguise and fake persona and name? If instead, you're shooting pool with your friends at a sports bar, then you must be self loathing, because what kind of gay man would do that? I wouldn't be surprised if someone had claimed the way one wipes their ass is grounds to call them self loathing.
Besides, we all know who is REALLY the ones that are self loathing.

Anyone see EJ on Fashion Police last night? His personality seems fine. Obviously he's spoiled but he doesn't seem too annoying...I will probably change my mind this coming winter though, as EJ is one of the cast members on the upcoming reality show "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills". Yes, he's going to be a reality star.
