Something to be deleted later but that I need to get out:
I guess I should clear up what I mean when I say what I do about Macklemore. It’s hurtful to me that I had to sit down every day in middle school, high school, even today and hear people throw the word faggot and the word gay around with a negative connotation like it was nothing. While I do agree that straight people should support gay rights, I’m willing to bet Macklemore has never felt that sting every time someone used one of those words that we’re just supposed to ‘get over’. That is something only possibly exclusive to that group of people that knows what it’s like to feel like the world hates you for something that you literally can not help. It is some fucking bullshit to me that for as long as gay artists have been trying to get this message across, people are paying attention to a straight dude. For lack of a better way to put it, it feels like a stolen victory from someone who’s never had to endure the issues that come along with it. This is only my opinion.
