Everyone was happy when Lauryn Hill released her new song, Neurotic Society. Weeks after the release and after her sentencing, fans of the singer allowed the dust to settle and listen to the words of the song. Now that they’ve heard, some are starting to question if L-Boogie is homophobic?

In Neurotic Society, Hill refers to the cause of the fall of society due to “girl men,” “drag queens,” and the lies of “social transvestism.”

In an essay on, Monica Miller writs about Hill messages and the effect on the LGBT community.

“Whether or not Hill is merely using these comments as examples of the smokescreens and sleight-of-hands that pervade this “Neurotic Society” is unclear. Beyond intention, these sorts of statements suggest that society is in a shambles because it’s been taking too many cues from the LGBTQ community, acting like “girl men,” “drag queens” and “transvestites.” Is her beef with oppressive society or is her issue with people who don’t abide by a traditional family structure? For those who don’t feel me, would it be okay if her song criticized “neurotic society” for acting like “N—–s,” ”mammies” and ”jezebels?” No! Then why does she think it’s cool to critique society by using stereotypes about a community that suggest the community isn’t as valuable as another?”
