50 Cent’s “Little Buns”

May 25 2012 @ 3:18pm

The rapper supports marriage equality on the grounds of "to each his own". Then this:

[W]e need organizations for straight men. We do. We need organizations 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.

Little buns? The man is built like a brick shit house. TNC analyzes:

This is what I meant about the difference between being fine with marriage equality, and still being bigoted against gays. As sure as there were arguments against slavery that had nothing to do with an affinity for black people, there are arguments for marriage equality that still allow for bigotry against gays and lesbians. But this is what progress always looks like.

Agreed. I'll take Mr Half-Dollar's support any day of the week. But what fascinates me is that a big, muscled thug-style dude like him is terrified that another man might touch his petite bottom. The specter of terrifying, marauding gay men traumatizing straight guys is still in the psyche, I suppose. Or maybe it's true that homophobia is the fear that other men will treat you the way you treat women.
