I Did Not Watch The Grammys

January 28, 2014

Because honestly, they are somewhat…ridiculous. The clothes can be fun but in terms of my listening preferences they don’t have much to do with what I’m interested in. Until someone like Kevin Aviance wins, I’ll question the whole “best” in any musical catagory moniker.

Further, I have this weird thing that I do wherein I get a few new readers. Or a few hundred, you know. (HI NEW READERS! Please stay. Tell your friends!) Anyway, I get a few new readers and then my ability to type words goes up in smoke.

My brain appears to hate me, I don’t’ know.

So there I was all set up to continue not writing anything when lo people showed their homophobic asses all over Twitter.

For anyone who, like me, didn’t watch the show, Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, and Mary Lambert performed. With a bit of an assist from Madonna on backing vocals and with Queen Latifah as officiant, 33 couples, gay, straight, mixed race, and homoracial, got married.

The sum of these tweets was pretty much

OMG TEH GAYZ R TRYIN TO GET THEIR GAY ALL OVER EVERYTHING!

Which is, you know, kinda true.

Do we want Gender and Sexual Minorities representation on award shows like the Grammys? Sure.

Also we want representation at places like the grocery store and stuff.

I don’t actually know what representation at the grocery store would look like…maybe all the fruits and veggies would be arranged like a rainbow?

An edible rainbow of nummy fruits and vegetables

Because that’s the whole point of being equal.

We don’t long for the days when what happened during Macklemore’s performance is the norm. We long for the days when equality is the norm and mass marriage events that include same gender couples is unnecessary.

That’s what equality looks like.
