see, THIS is history. and you won’t find it in any secondary school history textbook in the U.S., i guarantee.
when i’m about to buy something stupid, is there a way to just have my credit card decline itself?
This would have been more meaningful if it had come from someone besides the straight, white man. You know, like the lady two people over.
Seriously? Seriously, people? Shut the fuck up. Because he is a white straight man making an effort to gather support for equal rights he is unworthy? That his support is nothing? Or that it’s not good enough for him to support equal rights? Get your slick stinky underwear out of your ass crack and stop being so stupid. I’ve heard macklemore get so much shit today for FUCKING SUPPORTING equal rights! He is a straight white man using his privilege in a correct and respectful way and people seem to have a problem with that?! You’re fucking kidding me. So if he just decided to suck someone’s dick the day before, would his support finally mean something?! Man, shut the hell up people. This is support right here, and in the mainstream media.
/end motherfucking rant
reblogging this a million times
do you even understand how much shit macklemore gets because people think he’s gay? do you understand that they kept passing the microphone to her but she didnt want to speak? do you understand that if you’re straight, you can support same sex marriage? because you can. just because he’s straight doesn’t mean his support doesn’t matter. do you get how amazing it is to have a song like this played on the radio? things like this dont hapoen often, and the fact that the same straight goofball who sang “thrift shop” can write something so beautiful like this is amazing. in fact, i think it is fucking amazing that this man is using his speech time to talk about gay rights. he almost forgot to thank his fiancé because he cared about this cause so much. macklemore used his minute and a half (maybe less) of speech time to stand up for what he believe, to stand up for love, to stand up for his family. and you think that just because he’s straight it isn’t valid? that makes you just as close minded as homophobic people in my opinion.
I will never ever not reblog this. Ever.
Fucking thank you!!
About damn time somebody spoke some sense on this website.
Do you people even listen to the lyrics? “I may not be the same, but damn right I support them”
The issue isn’t that he’s a straight, white, cis man supporting lgbt rights. The issue is that many people interpret his support of those groups as his being able to represent them. Believe it or not, there are lgbt rappers and singers out there, but they are silenced for the very same reasons that people like Macklemore are allowed to speak. It’s not Macklemore who’s really in the wrong, it’s the whole idea that we, as a people, KNOWINGLY value his opinion and words on this subject above those of the people who are truly suffering and are subject to discrimination based on their sexual orientation and other factors. I’m not entirely sure if this was what the OP was trying to say
(although, yeah, i do agree that if he won an award for a song he recorded with a lesbian, it probably wouldn’t have hurt to let her say a few things about her thoughts and feelings on the issue.. but idk? maybe he did… let her say… a little?), but it’s really sad that there are a lot of people out there who need to hear it from a white man to start acting like they give a shit. And I know that it’s because he has privilege and that’s been built into society for years now, but if we acknowledge it and then ignore it, what good does that really do? How does that help us understand each other any better when we’re just waiting for someone like us or someone we consider an authority figure to tell us when to care? Because… What happens if they don’t?
As long as you….
