On Wednesday, Pharrell dropped a video for his new single, “Come Get It Bae,”which may immediately raise some questions, such as “Come get what?” and “What in the world does bae mean, anyway?” The short answer: Though this word was used in the 1500s to refer to sheep sounds, today bae is used as a term of endearment, often referring to your boyfriend or girlfriend. Or perhaps a prospect who might one day hold such a lofty position.

Canadian music festival takes huge step against Native appropriation
From their announcement:
For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.
We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.
Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.
say that one more time…bolded for significance

why do straight people think their opinions on lgbt issues matter
Because we care. Because we’re human beings, who care about other human beings.
And for the record, I am bisexual. Ignorance at its finest. Ignorant bigots. :)
how you gonna say because we care and then say ur bisexual hmm?? you fuckin potato salad
omg that was so insulting i actually just yelped
also straight people taking up space in LGBT issues is equivalent to America telling Nigeria it’s corrupt.
or white people telling black kids not to use the N word…
there is literally no room in this convo
also for the record being an ally doesn’t mean people in that community should care about your oppinion
for instance… tim wise (as problematic as some people think he is) doesn’t tell Black people his opinions about Blackness … his comments are directed towards non-minority group
i hope these examples help.

vagina’s are able to stretch wide enough to give birth to a fucking baby and then return to it’s original size but of course being penetrated by that grass blade you call a penis is what’s going to make it “loose”
