Seriously guys don’t ignore this like the media is. 
The City Centre of Glasgow is over run with protesters, people are setting off flares and attacking each other, police tried to form a human barrier to prevent the rioters from spreading, Unionists were burning the Saltire, there are claims that someone may have been stabbed. And the news sites aren’t reporting this. 
This city was my home for half a year and it’s absolutely killing me that people aren’t paying attention to what’s going on right now. 

Seriously, I watched major news channels for three hours today and this is getting ignored. Only sky news mentioned this, but called it “good humoured” and “boisterous.”
THIS IS NOT GOOD HUMOURED OR BOISTEROUS. THIS IS DANGEROUS AND BRUTAL.
Please get out of the city centre, or if you have to be there, avoid Buchanan Street and George Square. Be safe!
Don’t watch the link I posted if violence is triggering.

this sentence is giving me a migraine 

Iggy’s gonna be the first real superstar female rapper you guys ignore Lauryn and Missy’s grammy’s and critical acclaim ignore Nicki’s platinum albumS and sell out tours and critically acclaimed mixtapes ignore it all, ms crocodile dundee dropped one mediocre 8 track mixtape and did 2 songs that everyone only knows the chorus too SHE’S the one to watch!!! 

The most depressing part of this is that lat month Nicki Minaj actually broke the record for the most appearances as a lead, collaborative, or featured guest artist on the Billboard Hot 100. But nah, forget her, she’s not important, let’s all gush about how successful Iggy Azalea is instead.

iggy azalea’s only talents are 1) good hooks and 2) collaborating with people who can make her sound good, like, meanwhile nicki makes other incredible ppl sound mediocre next to her

If anyone’s wondering, yes I’m in Vegas.
Yes, it’s 10:48pm.
Yes, I can hear the pulsating beats resonating from several clubs within earshot.
Yes, I’ve chosen to spend my evening looking at photos of autumnal windows on Tumblr.
Yes, I am proud.

In what sense was Harvey milk a republican?

Okay, I was wrong about that, his Wikipedia page says he was a Democrat. And he did support a lot of good causes when he was on the city council in San Francisco. I think what stuck in my craw about that one post was that it seemed to imply that he was some sort of fiery radical queer when in fact he was in many ways the Dan Savage of his time because he wrought a lot of divisions in the people who initially supported him, and then there are things like this:

Milk, however, took advantage of the opportunity to illustrate his cause that public perception of gay people would be improved if they came out of the closet. He told a friend: “It’s too good an opportunity. For once we can show that gays do heroic things, not just all that ca-ca about molesting children and hanging out in bathrooms.”

It just seems like he won a lot of appeal by playing to people’s stereotypes and being conciliatory. I’m often loath to call people assimilationists but that’s what he strikes me as.

do you seriously not understand that we’re talking about the 1970s, when coming out was a much bigger deal than it is now, much more dangerous and much more rare, and that it actually was important for people like Harvey milk to come out precisely because most straight people had never knowingly known any out gay people, much less looked up to - or voted for! - an openly gay person?

the reason why it’s much easier for many people to be out now is that people like harvey milk dared to be out. calling him an “assimilationist” for acknowledging the disgusting homophobic assumptions many people made about gay people - and still do, but to a far greater extent in the 70s - and risking his career and eventually losing his life to change that, is as appalling as it is ahistorical. God help us all.

i

is this person serious

"for once we can show that gays do heroic things" and aren’t all child molesters and sex-only-all-the-time robots FUCKING ASSIMILATIONIST SCUM. only NORMIES are HEROES.

if you ever try to suggest with your public actions you might be a complex human being or even a good person, why, why, why, you’re… ASSIMILATING into the DOMINANT CULTURE… YOU… were… born… into…?

i cannot believe how angry i am right now how can you misconstrue that quote in such a hateful way

"the dan savage of his time" fucking shame on you

god forbid a gay guy want to end the stereotype that gay people are child molesters

also this person literally didn’t know milk was a democrat until they looked it up on Wikipedia? and they’re trying to talk on his politics? the fuck

"I have no idea what the hell I’m talking about, but here’s a ridiculous and ahistorical interpretation of an innocuous statement I chose at random to save face."
