I don't talk about current events or politics much in this space, but this one I can't pass up.

Fact 1. 50 cent makes some jokes on his twitter about needing a blow job.

Look I'm a good person I don't ask for much. I deserve a little oral bobbing on my ball sack. I do everything better when I'm relaxed. Lol

Fact 2: He tries in his (more than slightly stupid) way to tell guys that they need to reciprocate:

If you a man and your over 25 and you don't eat pu**y just kill your self damn it. The world will be a better place. Lol

Fact 3. In the US very recently, 3 young people have committed suicide allegedly as a result of gay bashing and bullying.

Fact 4. 50 Cent's statement has been seen in the media as an especially insensitive anti-gay sentiment.


Do I agree with Fiddy? Of course not. There are as many ways to have sex as there are people having sex.

Do I think he should have thought more carefully about what he said? Of course, but I don't expect much from someone who spells bed 'bead' on his twitter...

Do I think he got caught with bad timing? Oh Hell Yes! One should never make a joke about suicide, PERIOD! One should never joke about someone else's sexuality (hetero, homo, or otherwise determined or undetermined), PERIOD!

BUT, if he had said these things 3 months ago, before the suicides of these kids, would it have been so widely circulated? I would hope the answer is yes, but we all know that he happened to fall into the news cycle.

When I went back to read through his twitter (which many people, I'm sure, didn't do), placing the statement in context really does make sense. He was saying that he wants a blow job and that guys who want blow jobs from women should reciprocate.

Considering that his mother was a Lesbian, 50 Cent really should think about what he says and understand that a public twitter is not a vacuum, nor are his (far from) innocent statements things that will be put into context.

In Conclusion:
-50 Cent isn't the brightest bulb on the Christmas Tree.
-He thinks that everyone is entitled to oral sex.
-He made a dumbass statement that I honestly don't think he meant as anti-gay, but if he'd'a thought for a few minutes, he would realize why people are upset.
-Does putting the statement into context make it all right? No, but it does give it less of a gay bashing spin than the statement on its own.
-I do not buy the "my mom was a Lesbian, how can I be anti-gay". That's like saying, "I'm not a racist because I have Black friends"....NO, just NO!!

To be honest, how many people were surprised when they heard that some rapper said something stupid? Honestly? Doesn't that happen everyday? We do realize that he is a friend of Eminem, right?
