The Striking Viking
commented on Joe Mande Hates "Same Love"
It wasn't so much an act of bravery to make a song about homosexual rights in our current society (Seattle or elsewhere), but it was a bit ballsy in the context of the hip-hop community. That, I think, was the big deal. While I hesitate to make broad generalizations about a whole genre, Hip-hop on the national stage is full of macho heterosexual posturing...this was the departure Macklemore was making.
