I knew this type of BS will soon come along. Hip-Hop artist 50 Cents gave his opinions on gay marriage recently in an interview with Vibe magazine. Be prepared for such hetero foolishness:
On gay marriage:
“I think everyone should be happy. I think a fool is going to go against same sex marriage at this point. The President…look how long it took him to say he was for same sex marriages. You understand? I’m up for it. If everyone else is for it, then hey, to each his own. I don’t have personal feelings towards it because I’m not involved in that lifestyle. I want people to be happy. It makes for everything to be better.”
Not too bad right? I don’t like the use of the word “lifestyle,” though…
On heterosexual organization
“So in process, we need organization
s for straight men. We do. We need organization s for straight men in the case you’ve been on the elevator and somebody decides they want to grab your little buns. Times are changing. Those organization s are set up for at one point they were being attacked for those choices. Now its completely different. Obviously [homosexuali ty] is more socially accepted.”
Massive fucking fail, right?
How in the hell can someone advocate or marriage equality while promoting such heterosexist, homophobic bullshit. This type of double-speak bigotry reminds me of those nutjobs who advocate for a group to counter the NAACP or BET.
I mean, why not create an organization for straight men. They must have it so damn hard with the so-called threat of GLBTQ individuals out there just waiting for an opportunity to molest unsuspecting heterosexual males. They must have it so hard with all the gay men out there, watching their every move and waiting or a moment they can unleash their venom to bring more men in their ranks.
There’s nothing worse than witnessing someone claim support of full equality only to see their privileged minds take over and demonstrate how they really feel about marginalized bodies. 50 Cents is one of many who embody this endless cycle of bigotry oppressed groups have to navigate on a daily basis.
