Somizi Mhlongo decided it was time to confront straight men on just why they care so much about what he and his hubby Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo do. If you are not a fan of same-sex marriage, why do you get so invested?

There are still a lot of people who do not believe in same-sex marriages or even people of the same gender being a couple. This ongoing discrimination has made the lives of people of the LGBTQ+ community very difficult for many years.

Briefly.co.za came across a rather deep post made by Somizi in which he straight-up asked straight men why they are so interested in his relationship. This is a hard conversation that many are not willing to have.

Somizi took to social media with what he titled his “closed letter,” addressing the interest so many straight men show in his relationship. He sees you and he wants answers. This all stems from some questionable pics Somizi once posted on social media in which his bum was showing.

Seeing his bum posted on social media got the backs of a lot of people, mainly straight men, up. Somizi found it rather interesting as to why this was so offensive to straight men. Is it because he’s married to a man?

Getting real deep, Somizi questioned whether the men complaining actually liked it and just don’t have the guts to be open about who they really are. Often men who have to hide their sexuality are the first to make a mockery of those who have had the courage to own theirs.

“Closed letter to the so straight guys who are always touched by my relationship. They know themselves... this is not to all guys but bayazazi abazifuna next to me secretly, but instead of saying it they choose to spew hate. RIP.”

Seeing the post, many took to the comment section to let Somizi know that they supported him. Seeing how many straight men agreed with Somizi and showed their support is truly heartwarming.
