redneck i wanna

anonymous asked:

I'm going away to college next week and even though it's my dream school, I'm kind of scared bc it's in The South™ and I, a gay punk, am terrified of rednecks. I also don't wanna leave my current local scene behind :/ sorry this isn't really a question I'm just feeling very :/

Oh man, I don’t know what to tell you really but be brave, you will be okay, stay safe ❤

What’s up y’all. Trae Crowder, Liberal Redneck. Look, I wanna talk about a lot of things, but this transgender bathroom deal just won’t go away. And you know it’s gettin’ out of hand now cos we’ve got white people boycottin’ Target. God damn! Never thought I’d see the day. But yeah, sure enough, the American Family Association in Mississippi asked for a boycott of Target and they got over seven hundred thousand signatures. And I guarantee every one of them damn people’s so proud of themselves for makin’ a statement, too.

Y’all ever notice how shitty white people get to protest stuff by like, ‘goin to Sears instead!’ or ‘eatin’ two chicken sandwiches this week!’ But yeah. [sarcastically] Y’all are basically freedom riders.

Gah! This gets my red up, man! Apparently, the people signing this petition are doing it because they don’t feel comfortable taking their kids into Target now with their trans-friendly policy. Oh, really? Y’all ain’t comfortable? Yeah? Well if you’ll allow a rejoinder: So the hell what? If my great granny was still alive, she wouldn’t be comfortable eatin’ cornbread next to a colored boy. Guess what: She’d have to get her old ass over it. Cos it’s 2016 and that’s a shitty way to be. And why should we care if you’re comfortable anyway? Have you ever even thought about the comfort of gay people, black people, hell, me! I’m a non-Christian living in the south. I can’t even go to a goddamn potluck without having to thank some space fairy for the broccoli casserole and honey, it makes me a little uncomfortable. Have you ever cared? I’m guessin’ not since Nancy Grace never had a hashtag about it. 

But now you ain’t comfortable so now you’re screamin’ [mocking]: ‘we gotta boycott Target, askeet-da-deet-deet!’

Well, shit. I hope you realize that Target ain’t even gonna THINK about givin’ a damn. Target would love for you to waddle your hateful ass over to Wal-Mart. That’s where all the Duck Dynasty shit is anyway. Target don’t want you, American Family Association. Which, lastly, fuck that name. You don’t speak for my family! I got two little boys, man, and I’ve actually thought about the possibility of one of them bein’ gay or transgender and how I would feel if I knew they had to face the shit that y’all put people though for the sake of your ‘comfort.’ And it pisses me off. So stop trying to pass your bigotry off as a ‘family issue’ because, speaking as a father, that’s bullshit! 

And fuck Nancy Grace, too.
