April 28 2015 - Hundreds gathered outside the US Supreme Court in Washington DC in support of Gay Marriage. Inside, the justices considered whether the constitution requires states to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and whether individual states must recognise same-sex marriage which are performed in other states where the practice is legal.

Good job Sucker Punch Productions! You included something in Infamous: Second Son that was heartfelt and true to the city of Seattle, the state of Washington and the people everywhere that to this day are still being persecuted because of who they choose to love.

Most people are too afraid to take a side on this issue and include it in any form of mass media, and for that I applaud everyone at Sucker Punch who had a hand in creating this great game.

I’m so fucking happy I took the time to go to the Supreme Court today to hear the Obergefell decision. We weren’t sure if it would chime but seeing the interns run was great. And then it came! And the crowd went nuts. People were jumping up and down, yelling, crying. The two men hugging in the second row of pics are married but didn’t find each other until later in life. Watching them celebrate made even this cynical heart happy!

CNN EXCLUSIVE: President Barack Obama calls Jim Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling, while he and his supporters celebrated the ruling outside the court.


“I just wanted to say congratulations,” Obama says, being heard through speakerphone, adding later, “Your leadership on this has changed the country."

Major awards are going to be announced later in the pre-show and Macklemore believes Kendrick Lamar deserves the best rap album Grammy, but if he and his producer take home the award, he feels it is justified.

‘I think that we made a great album that pushed the genre of hip-hop,’ the 30-year-old said. 'I think that hip-hop can be at times resistant to change and when you see two white dudes from Seattle, Washington, rapping about gay marriage, it’s like, “Hold up, this isn’t hip-hop,” when in actuality it is. Hip-hop has always been about expansion, about pushing the genre, about challenging the listener.’

Some article about the Grammys

See, I have a problem with the idea that “The Heist” did anything new with hip-hop at all, though I’ll concede that’s subjective. But conflating people’s resistance to your mediocre album with a resistance to gay marriage (or any other social issues) screams of egotism, of the kind of false rhetoric straight white dudes use every day to try and make them feel innocent. Sorry, but I still reject your fuckin bullshit Mack.
