hopefully he’ll be able to put me in contact with my biological family. Wish me luck guys!
This would have been more meaningful if it had come from someone besides the straight, white man. You know, like the lady two people over.
Seriously? Seriously, people? Shut the fuck up. Because he is a white straight man making an effort to gather support for equal rights he is unworthy? That his support is nothing? Or that it’s not good enough for him to support equal rights? Get your slick stinky underwear out of your ass crack and stop being so stupid. I’ve heard macklemore get so much shit today for FUCKING SUPPORTING equal rights! He is a straight white man using his privilege in a correct and respectful way and people seem to have a problem with that?! You’re fucking kidding me. So if he just decided to suck someone’s dick the day before, would his support finally mean something?! Man, shut the hell up people. This is support right here, and in the mainstream media.
/end motherfucking rant
reblogging this a million times
do you even understand how much shit macklemore gets because people think he’s gay? do you understand that they kept passing the microphone to her but she didnt want to speak? do you understand that if you’re straight, you can support same sex marriage? because you can. just because he’s straight doesn’t mean his support doesn’t matter. do you get how amazing it is to have a song like this played on the radio? things like this dont hapoen often, and the fact that the same straight goofball who sang “thrift shop” can write something so beautiful like this is amazing. in fact, i think it is fucking amazing that this man is using his speech time to talk about gay rights. he almost forgot to thank his fiancé because he cared about this cause so much. do you know what taylor swift did? fucking insulted her ex. macklemore used his minute and a half (maybe less) of speech time to stand up for what he believe, to stand up for love, to stand up for his family. and you think that just because he’s straight it isn’t valid? that makes you just as close minded as homophobic people in my opinion.
I will never ever not reblog this. Ever.
OK, I’m getting really tired of this “poor Macklemore he’s being hated on for being a straight white man!!!11” bullshit.
Yes, it’s great that he’s using his privilege to talk about LGBTQ rights. What’s not so great is what he is saying is seen as being “new” and “revolutionary” and that Macklemore as seen by some as some saviour to queer people.
Because guess what? Macklemore isn’t the first person to rap about LGBTQ rights in his music. There are plenty of queer hip-hop and R&B artists, a good portion of them queer artists of colour and many of them women, who have been talking about LGBTQ issues in their music for ages. In fact, Macklemore may have stolen ideas from Le1f, a queer rapper of colour.
The fact that Macklemore, a straight white guy, was the person to become famous, make a shitton of money, and get awards of making “music with a cause” while queer hip-hop artists, most of them not white and many of them women, continue to be largely ignored, is what I (and a lot of other people) are side-eyeing. The fact people will pay attention when a straight white guy raps about LGBTQ rights but won’t pay attention when a queer person of colour (who might also be a woman) does the same thing (and is able to speak about it FROM THEIR OWN EXPERIENCE) is pretty telling of the racism, homophobia, and sexism that still exists in the music industry (and society at large).
TL;DR: It’s cool that Macklemore is using the attention he’s been given to promote LGBTQ rights, but the reason he’s getting that attention is largely because of racism, sexism, and homophobia and it’s important to not forget that.
i just want a boy who touches me distractedly
like sitting watching a movie and he just kinds of drags his fingers over your skin while watching and he doesn’t have a motive he’s not trying to tickle you or be sexual with you he’s just touching your skin and feeling the shape of your bones under that skin like it’s physically comforting for him to know that you’re there right under his fingertips im so

- Neoplastic proliferation of mature myeloid cells, especially platelets
- RBC and granulocytes are also increased
- Associated with JAK2 kinase mutation
- Iron deficiency anemia has a similar pattern - also has a lot of platelets associate; so, need to differentiate!Symptoms:
- Increased risk of bleeding or thrombosis - platelets either don’t function or over function
- Rarely progresses to marrow fibrosis (most of the myeloproliferatives are able to burn out and —> marrow fibrosis) or acute leukemia
- No significant risk for hyperuricemia or gout (platelets are developed from megakaryocytes—they’re just pieces of the cytoplasm, so they don’t actually have nuclei, so there is no quick turn-over nucleic acids)
