Black people have been putting up with this kind of thing for decades.

I find the song extremely sincere .

He cops so much shit for trying to speak up for issues he cares about and it pisses me off, because so often people give artists crap for NOT speaking up when they have an audience to speak to. You can't have it both ways.

The straight allies are everything right now. It's humbling and lovely to see all the FB profile pics in rainbow.

While it might be sincere, it really, really is a bad song lol. It just.. meanders on and there's nothing interesting going on there. I think it's great he attempted to tackle this issue, but the execution could've been better.

Yeah, it surprised me that there were many of my straight friends who did that. In fact, I think they were the only ones to do so. Oh the irony.

Yeah the first time I heard Same Love my thought was "that was sweet". Now when I hear the song I want to put my eardrums out because it's so boring.

Good on him for the effort, and I admire that he's got the courage to not only write a song like that but to release it as a single, but it's just musically not very interesting.

It's so fucking cloying and bad.

I also wasn't concerned about my sexuality in 3rd grade, but maybe I was just a late bloomer.

So Irvine and Galeon and anyone else I might be forgetting, it seems like there have been a lot of people who have become vocal supporters of LGBT rights, with the Facebook rainbows and such, only in the very recent past, when it was becoming increasingly clear where the movement was going and there could no longer be any serious repercussions for espousing such a stance. How do you feel about that?

It's the same thing watching Blackhawks "fans" come out of the woodwork two rounds into the playoffs.

Whatever helps, helps. While I do believe that many of these people were already supportive, but in the privacy of their own homes. Which is okay to me. Though I live in a society where nobody cares if you're gay or straight, there still are people not okay with that. But they do so in the privacy of their own homes. Which is more than okay to me. The tables are turned, now hate is done in private and love can flow freely. I don't mind that it takes some people longer to get than others that gays are just human beings that deserve basic human rights. As long as they get there in the end.
