Miley Cyrus: Why I Got My Gay Marriage Tattoo

Miley Cyrus: Why I Got My Gay Marriage Tattoo

Miley Cyrus and boyfriend Liam Hemsworth head to lunch at Studio Cafe on Friday (February 3) in Studio City, Calif.

The 19-year-old singer and actress paired her high-waisted denim shorts with a strapless black top and matching boots.

Miley recently penned a piece for Glamour.com explaining why she got her “All LOVE is equal” tattoo, something that sparked controversy, hate mail, and even threats.

“I believe every American should be allowed the same rights and civil liberties. Without legalized same-sex marriage, most of the time you cannot share the same health benefits, you are not considered next of kin and you are not granted the same securities as a heterosexual couple. How is this different than having someone sit in the back of the bus because of their skin color?” she wrote.

Excuse me Ms. Cyrus; I am a Black woman and while I support gay rights and equality, IT IS NOT the same as the treatment of Blacks during the civil rights movement. Please go back to the history books, talk to some Black people (there’s a novel idea), or STFU and sit down.

I will never understand this need people have of insulting others.

# 7

Is she wearing one of those fake nose-and-glasses things you get from a joke shop?

# 8

Oh God why doesn’t she shut up when she has half facts. I agree with gossipgirl , this is no way equal to civil rights movement.
I still don’t understand why isn’t it being legalized, why cant people follow Live and Let Live. it works great for me , I don’t bother about what others do or don’t do.

BTW is it only me who finds Liam Hemsworth ugly ?

@Gossipgirl

Your ignorance to the Civil Rights of African Americans and Gays is obvious. After reading my list, if you still think they’re different then I can’t help you.

1. Banned from Public Places: Gays and Blacks
2. Hung: Gays and Blacks
3. Denied marriage rights: Gays and Blacks
4. Denied voting rights: Gays and Blacks
5. Slavery: Blacks
6. Fired: Gays and Blacks
7. Denied housing: Gays and Blacks
8. Banned from the military: Gays and Blacks
9. Witch-hunted: Gays and Blacks
10. School segregation: Blacks

So besides for slaver and school segregation, the Black and Gay Civil Rights movement are Equal. Even though they can’ segregate Gays in school, doesn’t mean they wouldn’t if they could. Next time you try to speak about something you know nothing about, don’t.

WOW. I am 110% supportive of marriage equality, but this girl is speaking out of absolute ignorance when she compares gay rights in the year 2012 to the disgusting mistreatment of colored (not just black, but Asian or “yellows,” as they called us) in the 50s and 60s.

Miley, please show me an instance where the GOVERNMENT FORCED gays to sit at the back of the bus, attend separate schools, use separate bathrooms, weren’t allowed to attend public universities, couldn’t get a job, couldn’t eat in public restaurants, etc. IGNORANT and INACCURATE comparison. Disgusting.

There is no difference between the treatment meted out to blacks and gay people. Discrimination against both groups was/is based on something they have no control over i.e. the color of their skin and their sexual orientation; it is an apt comparison. Regardless, even if you don’t like the comparison, you should be offended by Americans being discriminated against, period. If you are not, then not only are you a bigot but you are also unpatriotic.

If you’re going to disagree with someone, you don’t have to be hateful. If you’re Black and you want to point out that it might not be the same as mistreatment of gay people (which I agree, cause gay people weren’t dragged from their continent to be enslaved and bought and sold and treated like friggen property), just say why and enlighten people. Miley went to Haiti to help people, regardless of their color, so I think she deserves respect even if she might have misspoken.

carryin the banner for redneck southern wear, yah miles!

@ Angela Miley is NOT a Christian, obviously.

@Thomas Alex: Thank you for educating me on this issue. What do I know? I’m only the descendant of slaves. Love and peace to all!

@Thomas Alex:

I’m sorry but equating racial discrimination with discrimination against gays is a false equivalence. The minute you say “with the exception of…” your argument is immediately invalid especially when that exception is a 300 year history of racial discrimination and disenfranchisement.

I also don’t understand why every case of discrimination has to be compared to slavery or the Civil Rights Movement. While we can measure instances of discrimination by degree of severity, it doesn’t make something any less wrong even if it doesn’t equate to what happened during slavery or in the 1950s and 60s. During these times, discrimination was based on a physical characteristic. Skin color couldn’t be changed or disguised, which is not the case with homosexuality.

The argument for equality for homosexuals has its own very good and valid merits without bringing up the Civil Rights Movement. I feel like when we throw these comparisons out there to validate one movement we’re doing a disservice to both.

u cant compare suffering like hey, we suffered more than u etc
so x group was worse of than jews during the holocaust? and y group worse than the Complete Annihilation of american indians?
what about the oppressed in South Africa?
if u suffered and were wronged, u just were.
no need to compare.
