Because sometimes men want to be the little spoon, to be held and feel safe, too.

Not gonna lie, i have no problems with being the little spoon
i cant even fit around all his muscles
being the little spoon is awesome
"said no grown ass man ever" oh pls get over yourself
why is it seen as ~unmanly~ to enjoy cuddles oh my gOD
I love being the big spoon :3
Sometimes being the little spoon is AWESOME!
I tend to be the big spoon simply because that’s the side I sleep on. I’ve yet to hear a single complaint!
I’m a grown ass man and I love being the little spoon.
1. tumblr’s response to frank ocean’s coming out was universally enthusiastic. his tumblr post about coming out has 83,000 notes and counting. but, you know, good job erasing the emotional responses of 83,000 people to make your bullshit point.
2. i’m so glad we have brave people like you, tumblr user decolonizingyourdadtonight, to ignore the fact that nicki minaj admitted to lying about being bisexual and actually appropriated lesbian imagery and sex acts in the “the boys” video. yeah, a straight woman pretending to be bisexual and miming lesbian sex acts to sell records? totally progressive.
3. jay-z and kanye west use homophobic slurs like punctuation, but please, tell me more about how lyrics like “girls kissing girls, cause it’s hot, right? but unless they use a strap-on then they not dykes, they ain’t about that life” are okay because kanye west, like, totally thinks teh gays should marry!!!
4. “lgbtqi+ rappers exist” i like azealia and angel and kitty as much as the next girl but the fact is that we don’t live in a world where these artists top the billboard charts. it’s not like there’s a huge queer presence in mainstream rap that tumblr is ignoring in favour of bland heteronormativity. the fact that lgbtq rappers exist and aren’t topping the charts is a huge problem that actually starts with label execs and systemic homophobia, not teenagers on tumblr. but, you know, keep yelling at kids who listen to macklemore, you’re changing the world.
5. i’ma quote my good friend spencer:
I know Macklemore is reaching zenith exposure levels right now, and absolutely every individual is entitled to feel however they feel about something, but I’m getting really tired of seeing Same Love being dragged up and down my dash, and I’ll tell you why:
Same Love was released as a single on July 18, 2012, almost a year ago; it was written in response to Washington Referendum 74, which, if passed, would approve the bill legalizing same-sex marriage in Macklemore’s home state Washington. All of the proceeds from the single (we’re talking disc sales, digital downloads, radio airplay) went to funding an organization called Music4Marriage, which was a Washington-based organization raising awareness about Referendum 74 in support of same-sex marriage. The referendum was passed by voters on November 6, 2012, and same-sex marriage is now legal in the state of Washington.
At this time, most of you still didn’t know Macklemore even EXISTED, because his smash radio hit Thrift Shop didn’t even enter the greater public consciousness until it started burning up the charts in late December.
Same Love fought its fight well before any of you even heard it, so whether or not you think it’s annoying or condescending or trivializing, it remains that it accomplished the goal it was intended for. But now that his ubiquity is at peak levels, I’m seeing numbering complaints about how Macklemore, who, at the time he wrote and recorded the song, was just a locally-known Seattle-based hip-hop artist, is latching onto a movement he doesn’t belong in, is hurting the LGBT community, is just looking for attention.
This is the guy who put his two uncles on the cover of the Same Love single. This is the guy who asked fellow Seattle musician and actual member of the queer community Mary Lambert if she would sing the chorus on his song. This is the guy who released a seven-minute music video for it that he doesn’t even appear in, until the last 30 seconds.
And now that he’s made a name for himself, even though this fight has yet to be won in places outside the state of Washington, he’s attention-seeking or disingenuous or condescending for using his newfound platform to spread that message even further?
I’m sorry, but that’s just ignorance.
