I agree with that sentiment. I truly don't think that was his intention, due to the lack of celebrity he had when the song was written (and really even when the album was released). But the masses have definitely turned it into a bigger issue of hypocrisy. It's getting to the point where it doesn't even seem to matter what songs were written about or why, but moreso what everyone wants to make of it.
This. People seem to forget that, despite how blatantly obvious some creators of media make their messages, consumers always come to their own conclusions about what a texts messages are. 'Blurred Lines' is not obviously
about date rape/rape culture, but some lyrics can be interpreted that way when looking at them from that side of things. Many people have done that, so Robin Thicke is fucked. I feel sorry for Macklemore in this instance because to me it seems his intentions were good - just because he isn't LGBT, doesn't mean his message is lessened & he is being a "straight savior".
