I don’t think I can do any of these.

I can do most of these, but only for a very short amount of time. These are hard T.T

More Macklemore, less Robin Thicke.

And yet a huge percentage of Tumblr hates him. Not trying to be confrontational, but could someone please explain to me why this is?

Because he is a straight white guy and Tumblr isn’t always right. 

Yup. A lot of people like to ignore all the good things he does simply because he is part of the privileged. Never mind that he flat out acknowledges this in Same Love. (“I may not be the same, but that’s not important.”)

BLESS YOUR SOULS. 
BLESS YOUR FUCKING SOULS. 
I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND THAT FUCKING A LOT OF TUMBLR HATES MACKLEMORE. 
BECAUSE HONESTLY, HE WAS EVERYTHING THEY WERE COMPLAINING WHITE PEOPLE AREN’T AND NOW THAT THEY GOT A FUCKING ROLEMODEL THEY SUDDENLY COMPLAIN?????? BECAUSE HE’S WHITE????? 
Macklemore grew up privileged, yes, but he understands the inequality and the disturbing gap between rich and poor. He has a song called White Privilege: 
"Hiphop started off in a block that I’ve never been toTo counter act a struggle that I’ve never even been throughIf I think I understand just because I flow tooThat means I’m not keeping it true, nope.”
ALSO
"But as I’m blessed with the privilege, they’re still left with the scars"
AND HAVE YOU HEARD HIS SONG CLAIMING THE CITY???
"I grew up on Capitol Hill,With two parents and two cars.They had a beautiful marriage, we even had a swing set in our yard.My mom didn’t have a job, because my dad made enough money that we could live comfortably and he could support us.Now, he commute to Tacoma, so we knew we be good.But then I realized everybody looked just like me in my neighborhood.I go to school, which was diverse.But indeed us, I got sandwiches and Capri Suns well my friends ate their free lunch.It’s crazy trying to look back, cause when I was growing upI didn’t understand the fact was there’s something called a social status.And my black friends wanted my financial bracket.And then my city’s divided,From neighborhood to neighborhoodWe’re polarized but we claim we’re progressive.The police shoot in the hood but never once in my residence.As a white person been shot at we’d stopped in a Lexus.And to think that we have claimed that so much has changed”
OH GOODNESS ME, HE’S SUCH AN ASSHOLE. HE’S SO PRIVILEGED GOD.
HOW ABOUT A WAKE??? 
"Don’t wanna be that white dude, million man marchin’Fighting for our freedom that my people stoleDon’t wanna make all my white fans uncomfortableBut you don’t even have a fuckin’ song for radioWhy you out here talkin race, tryin’ to save the fuckin’ globeDon’t get involved with the causes in mindWhite privilege, white guilt, at the same damn timeSo we just party like it’s nineteen ninety nineCelebrate the ignorance while these kids keep dying.”
Tumblr needs to hop down off it’s high fucking horse and instead of turning against a potential role model and ally to all that they’ve been fucking preaching about JUST BECAUSE HE’S PRIVILEGED AND WHITE, maybe make him an icon because he’s not rapping about disrespecting women. He’s making a small change. But because he grew up with a well structured family environment and he was able to afford everything he desired, he’s suddenly the enemy. 

Macklemore hate is proof that Tumblr’s brand of militant social justice is just made up of a bunch of people with either a victimization fetish and/or a hateful, angry heart seeking acceptable targets, and they then proceed to poison the people that really just want to do good, ultimately mangling a good cause beyond recognition.
And 99% of people who complain about the first lyric of “Same Love” have never actually listened beyond that. Somebody tells them “The song starts with ‘when i was in the third grade i thought that i was gay’” and they start clutching their pearls because surely the whole song is just some straight dude making lgbtqa rights all about him and how he thinks because he thought he was gay when he was eight he knows all about it. And maybe it’s not the best way to word the beginning of the song, BUT IF YOU ACTUALLY LISTEN OR READ BEYOND THAT it turns out it’s a segue into talking about ridiculous stereotypes and preconceived ideas about sexuality and questioning why someone would think it was a bad idea to be gay in the first place. And then it goes on to discuss the homophobia inherent in the music genre he’s a part of and calling his peers out on slurs and derogatory language and hypocrisy in religion, and it beautifully features Mary fucking Lambert, and goddammit I had trouble driving home when I first heard it in the car because I was fucking crying.
Macklemore is a privileged individual who consistently and vocally acknowledges his privileges and strives to use it to do legitimate good, which is everything Tumblr claims it wants, but as soon as he starts, they scream for him to shut up. Because their need to rage and scream and hate and wallow in willful ignorance is more important to them than seeing actual change take place anywhere in the world.

so glad i came across this post. you have to remember that tumblr :so called “activists” like to comment on anything that seems potentially bad, even if that means over-shadowing great points and progress that a lot of people, both gay and straight have wished for.

I’m in calgary actually, so I have a vested interest myself :-)

Are you from Alberta or not far from Alberta and are a fan of Teen Wolf?

We need to band together and ask the lovely folks of the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo to consider inviting a group of celebs from Teen Wolf to the 2015 Expo. I don’t think anyone…

Novel rec's!

  • Hey! I'm branching out of my ten author prison and looking for new things to read! (yes, for the past several years I only read books by the same ten authors.)
  • I'm looking for fiction with main characters with an LGBTQ bent.
  • I recently read I am J by Cris Beam and it was amazing.
  • Anyone have any recommendations for me?

Imagine one day coming across vintage fanfiction on your teenager’s phone and recognising it immediately because you wrote the porn your child is trying to hide from you

I have had this happen. I caught my 14 year old reading my veronica Mars fiction. I’m not sure who was more embarrassed. But at least now I’m the cool mom among her fandom friends /:-/

Aaaahahaha, that is fantastic!

I should elaborate… Her friends think I’m cool. She herself thinks I’m an embarrassment because her mom was a fangirl before it was cool.
