No Freedom Till Were Equal!

There is  a lot of controversy in the world today revolving around equal right's, early this year in England same sex marriage was legalised. Many negative view's have been expressed online and through youtube comment's, about homosexuality. 

Society has become obsessed with wanting to know certain peoples sexuality, this is frustrating to see because some people do not want to say or may still be working it out for themselves. I understand that to put yourself on youtube, you are expected to get hate comment's and that people want to know more and more about who they are watching. Some of the thing's I read online towards these people, are totally unacceptable.

I think that all people should be allowed to be themselves, whatever sexuality, colour or gender they are, without constantly feeling like they are going to be judged by other's. 



I think that the song that implements this is "Same Love" by Macklemore from his album which you can download on I-tunes here- https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/the-heist-deluxe-edition/id560097651This album is a ray of light, listen to it, and understand the view's some of the ignorant world are unable to comprehend. The lyrics portray a message to society, that we shouldn't judge, that we are all different from sexuality to music taste, no person is completely the same. 

Some of the lyric's include lines like "It's human rights for everybody, there is no difference, Live and be yourself. I might be the same but thats not important, No freedom till were equal damn right I support it". Macklemore won a MTV music award for his song "Same Love" at the MTV Awards for video "with a message". Some critics believe that Macklemore is attempting to portray homosexuality as something "normative and "good" ignoring the social context it is normal put in, "a word rooted in hate year our genre still ignores it."
My opinion is 'always be OPEN MINDED and ACCEPTING of others', "treat others as you wish to be treated'.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you think about the controversy. See you thursday!
