Hey, Im about as un judgmental  as you can get. As I scroll thru my timeline, I come across Young Thug’s post. (Stoner, About The Money, Lifestyle). Earlier today, Young Thug dropped an interesting picture with an equally interesting caption. Insert below.

Things That Stand Out To Me

1. The pastel fingernail polish. (Rock artist have done this before. Not shocking)

2. Hubbie could’ve been “Homie” spell checked.

3. Maybe it’s the lighting, but Young Thug’s eyebrows look a tad arched.

I said all that to say this. IT’S NOT MY BUSINESS WHAT 2 GROWN MEN CALL EACH OTHER!!! But it did bring the question up… Is “Rap” ready for it’s first openly gay relationship??? Not rumors or Instagram pictures. But 2 artist who you respect & love their music, coming out as a couple… Times are changing. Take the poll.

Researchers said they detect what they call the “spiral of silence” phenomenon: Unless people know their audience agrees, they are likely to shy away from discussing anything controversial.

In other words, most of us are more comfortable with ice-bucket challenges than political banter.

“People do not tend to be using social media for this type of important political discussion. And if anything, it may actually be removing conversation from the public sphere,” said Keith Hampton, a communications professor at…
