Eminem: Ugly Words, and Scared of His Own Attraction to Men?

Think about the difference between the proper intolerance we have for slurs against Blacks and Jews, vs. our improper tolerance for slurs -- like Eminem's -- against women and homosexuals.

If Eminem's lyrics attacked Blacks and Jews the same way he attacks gays and women, would he ever even have gotten a recording contract, let alone been nominated for a Grammy?

And regarding his homophobia, an elementary principle of psychology is that we attack in others that which we most don't want to recognize in ourselves. From the ugliness and ferocity of his lyrics, Eminem must be scared to death of his own so-far-suppressed gay inclinations.
