Mackleless works with the same sort of view that society tends to have when discussing homophobia in music: hyperfocus on hip-hop/rap, vague/zero mentions of other genres. I shouldn’t have to point out that homophobia is virulent in hard rock, metal and country music/fanbases, and even in pop music. He talks about how [hip-hop/rap] ignores it, as if other genres do not ignore their homophobia or otherwise fails to comment on it.
He compares gay rights to civil rights and says there’s “no difference” between the two, cause it’s not like Black queers didn’t exist in those times and don’t exist today! I swear to God, this is the hardest point to drum into white queers/white heterosexual people. I am queer and Black, but my Blackness is not my queerness and oppression either identity face IN-TER-SECTS.
