Hip hop in my experience contains a lot of homophobia/homophobic slurs. Or at least it used to.
Yeah well the board I used to frequent before MB was more hip hop oriented and there are definitely people who think hollywood is using hip hop to break down the masculinity of the black man... I'm not saying it's right but there is that perception.

Basically hip hop is one of the last bastions of unapologetic masculinity and bravado in modern pop culture.. in an era where said macho posturing is being seen as more and more taboo/problematic

Hip hop was one of the longest standing pillars of this ethos precisely because it wasn't as receptive to white feminists criticizing it for being too misogynist. Said criticisms were perceived as just another white dismissal of a black art form.

But as time goes by and the culture shifts, hip hop and the black community in america have evolving attitudes towards things like lgbt/feminist issues and we're seeing a generally more accepting environment than would've seemed possible 20 years ago.

But there is still the inherent bravado that is implicit in hip hop and cannot be erased because it is intrinsic to the art form. Hence Cardio B comes out with WAP and feminists say ah she's empowering women. She's just using the same frame work males used to talk about hoes but with inverted sexes. The bravado remains in tact. Same with this lil nas x song. There's nothing sappy or apologetic or attempting to pull at your heart strings about it, like that old Macklemore song which was just corny. Lil nas X just leans in on all the decadent and satanic imagery on top of the gay **** and this once again keeps the bravado in tact.

Obliviously, people who are predisposed to conspiracy thinking, religious mindset and conservative mindset are going to recognize this antagonism against their world vote for what it is and as such perceived it as more satanic brainwashing set forth from on high. From whoever it is that looks out that eye at the top of the pyramid.

Ah okay, with the explanation, I understand what you were getting at. With most things, it depends on the perspective of the person listening and their various confirmation biases.

Matt Gaetz is being investigated for having sex with/trafficking a 17 year old. And that's a biproduct of a completely different GOP member being investigated for sex trafficking.

Apparently he went on Tucker Carlson and said it was just a blackmail plot and then was like "Hey, Tucker, you were having dinner with me when that person came up and tried to shake me down, you remember right? And Tucker was just like "Yeah I don't know what you're talking about."

Everything Kaitlin Bennett has ever said or done is ****ing idiotic so that's no surprise. Also obligatory reminder of her infamous photo where she pooped herself in the middle of a party

Also I hope Matt Gaetz gets more than cancelled, I hope he ends up in jail. Piece of **** motha****a, man

Richard Dawkins loses ‘humanist of the year’ title over trans comments

Time to cancel Richard Dawkins.
