chasingdunamis asked: I have mad love for you, dude. Seriously. I just read some of your post concerning your sexuality and I could definitely see the difficulty of explaining yourself to folks. Genuine admiration.
Anonymous asked: You like to talk about feminism and body image a lot. I'm curious about sex and hip hop. Do you know of any gay rappers (in or out of the closet)? Is there any famous emcees that might be gay? Are *you* gay/bi/queer etc. ?
Anonymous asked: No offense intended -- I doubt you'll be offended, but covering bases --, Do you identify as gay? Some of your recent posts left me wondering. Feel free not to asnwer this
I just like creating stuff and trying to make good work, whatever it is. I don’t...– Andre 3000 (via jessethorn) I have intensely mixed feelings about this quote. It’s a nice sentiment in theory but the actual output of its source isn’t working in its favor. Because uh… nobody wants a damn Andre 3000 toothbrush! And I sincerely doubt that Andre 3000 possesses the skills necessary...

boxcutterhaircut: I’m trying to cancel my gym membership. I can’t afford it right now, and I’m not even in a good enough place to be going to a gym regularly anyway. I’m just not ready to try and lose weight yet. HOWEVER, in order to cancel my membership I’ve tried calling their 1-800 number twice now. And twice… A dude in Ottawa was trying to cancel his gym membership at the giant...

bigbigtruck: I bought a copy of 3rd Bass’ The Cactus Album with money in 2007 and I don’t particularly regret it this is the kind of adult I have become the kind of adult that is steppin to the A.M. why the fuck would you be sorry for this?? the only thing less shameful than buying The Cactus Album is buying Derelicts Of Dialect, their even BETTER sophomore album!

Me: I need it NOW
Him: I know, they're working on it!
Me: Tell them if they don't do it today they get NOTHING. I don't have time for rapper bullshit. We can't do this a week out.
Him: I know! They're all like, 'b-b-but it's EMINEM!'
Me: You know what? Tell them his misogynist, woman-beating ass can take his fucking Grammy and shove it where the sun don't shine. I don't care where they stay.
Him: Ok, I'll tell them.
I love Cyndi Lauper, but Madonna is slightly more… prolific, more...– Viktor Vazquez (Kool AD of Das Racist), when asked if he prefers Madonna or Cyndi Lauper. Even though there’s a ton to like about Lauper and a ton to criticize about Madonna, I think it’s classy to list a bunch of admirable facts about someone it’s become cool to trash on lately.
There’s a push to make people ashamed of being offended by anything, as if it...– The 7 Stupidest Things That Make People Proud | Cracked.com (via upshot) “Someone who offends you hasn’t ‘got’ you or ‘won’. What they said, and why, matters. They don’t get a free pass on being scrutinized on any of that just because they got a certain reaction.” (via erikawithac) I like the...

[M]y eyes are opening just from reading the comments, … they say stuff...– Too $hort in conversation with dream hampton on Ebony Magazine’s website. I thought in the first place that what he said (as far as I could find it transcribed) irresponsibly glossed over the matter of consent but described something that is far from abnormal behaviour between consenting...

pumpkinpeach: A friend of a friend of a friend of someone on my facebook recently uploaded this picture. And tagged a trans girl as the bottle. The girl asked to be untagged and the picture taken down. Because she’d experienced hate and violence associated with that word. Which is totally reasonable. … I find the word “tranny” pretty jarring. (I just told my phone not to learn...

milkeemountainmama: i’m just not going to read tumblr any more, forever. or something. because this whole “ri made a new song w/chris brown she’s getting back together with him, fuck her next time he beats her” crap is really fucking pissing me off. and in many ways, the discourse… only sober reactions to anything ever ^^^^
Anonymous asked: I just want to first say that I know absolutely ZERO about rap whatsoever (Who-Tang Clan?). I used to think that it was a pointless genre that only idiots listened to, but then I heard YOU. You really opened my eyes to what rap could really be. The only problem is, all of the other rap I've heard (which is not much, I'll admit) was terrible. I own your albums, where do I go next?
