52 notes July 6, 2012 "Tyler, the Creator can now claim that he's not homophobic—two of his best friends and colleagues are not straight!—but that sort of claim is, as we all know, bullshit. That's a very definitive response that any non-straight person can make. As a gay man who grew up in a rural town in Virginia, there's a lot of my personal life that I do not share with friends and family back home. I'm certainly out and open, and most people know about it and accept it! But that doesn't mean I don't get incredibly uncomfortable when I am around people who casually make homophobic remarks. (And don't get me started on the casual racism, because oof.)"
