The Comments on Beyoncé’s Instagram in Support of Gay Marriage Are Very Mature


If you’ve been following Beyoncé on Instagram you know she’s gone HARD in support of gay marriage these last couple days, even making the emptiest of gestures the incredibly bold, impossibly brave choice to post the ubiquitous pink equality = on her account (pictured above). It’s a big step from the avowed Christian who named her baby and latest track after a famous Bible verse * (1 Chrysanthemums 12:16 – “And with a fist full of blue ivy, Lord God did shout down from the mountaintop to his subjects, ‘Bow down, Bitches!'”) In a day and a half the pic has 175,763 <3s, and many of its over 5,000 comments, as you can imagine, are amazing; delicate and subtle understandings of the true nature of Man, religion and why we do what we do. This is Instagram, remember, so no one leaving comments is anonymous. You can look through photos of their most cherished moments and favorite sandwiches, should you so desire. Naturally, that kind of exposure has heightened the debate and kept things civil.

@rhonda_bl: @baddiebey OMG, for somebody who seems like a traditional person, how can you support such a thing? Do you want your daughter to grow up and be a lesbian or be like Chaz bono and become a man? If gay marriage is legalized, this kind of behavior will be viewed at acceptable. You can’t call yourself a Christian and support this. Have you thought about the long term consequences? Just because something seems natural and fair now doesn’t mean it’s the right thing! God made it wrong for a reason!

Supporting the rights of people to fall in love with and marry whom they wish = Blue Ivy is Chaz Bono. Makes perfect sense.

@redbadchica: Marriage should be between a man and woman and that’s it! Just because the media and society says its ok does not mean that I do! We are all entitled to believe what we want and I will raise my kids to know that this bs isn’t right no matter how much society throws it in our face! Ppl are so stupid if they think that this girl OR HER HUSBAND agree with this shit. It’s a good career move to fight for gay rights!

Clearly. It doesn’t seem to make you or @rhonda_bl, fans who like to flip through pics of Beyoncé in their spare time, the least bit angry.

@cstoops11: Some people saying there is no God, most people saying its ok to marry the same sex…all I can say is, its very sad to see.

Agreed. Everything about this is sad.

@star562: Adam and Eve were put on this earth for a reason. If the Lord intended to have same sex marriage the Mighty one would have put Adam and Jose or Ellen and Christi but he didn’t. Now if you want to be in a same sex relationship then go for it. But there is no way two people of the same sex will have their signature on an official certificate. No way

“Adam and Jose.”

This really strange conversation:

@_dannycocaine: @2sweeet_t and why do you think gays shouldn’t marry ? * waits for a brilliant answer*

@2sweeet_t: If u legalize gay marriages, @_dannycocaine y not turn around the rest of the laws to benefit others happiness like molestation

@xelerose: @2sweeet_t molestation? Really?… that’s the dumbest comparison yet.

@2sweeet_t: Jesus @xelerose it started out that way…they were led a stray btw this isnt the only thing potential law I believe to be harmful to society but thats my opinion so in no way shape or form am I shoving anything down ones throat…a man and a woman are physically , mentally, spirituality and chemically designed to go together. Our body anatomys correspond to reproduce and two women or two men cannot do that..yall can sut here and ignore the obvious facts to fight the norm or to be different but the facts are and will always be there

@2sweeet_t: If they choose to live they lifestyle thats on them @xelerose , but dont legalize to make them happy if u want to be sleepn with the same sex go head…next thing you know they gone be mad they cant naturally produce and who they gone blame that on the n??!! Society??!! For not finding some majical way to have babies…lmmfao

May no one you love or care about ever be lead a stray.

@fashion_icon25: This world coming to an end, people really think its okay for women to fuck women and men to fuck men . Smh , Satan got all his hoes out

It’s fun when you imagine “Satan got all his hoes out” means he’s tending to his beautiful garden.

@bep4eva Equality for what??

@darnell86: Ok can somebody explain to me what does this means? I see this all over my instagram but doesn’t describe much? I don’t understand

Some people are late to the = party, and look to the comment section of Bey’s Instagram for answers. Satan got all his hoes out.

@janyouweary: Im not tryna preach on instagram, but @2sweeet_t is right fans. Its always an opposing force to another; opposite. Black/white, day/night, male/female, God/devil. We are merely on this planet to find or way to Heaven as creations of God. The devil is here to cast us astray. Homosexuality is an abomination whether our paths decide that for us or not. If you don’t believe in God/His word; the Bible…Im sorry but Im no judge.

“I’m not tryna preach on instagram” but “homosexuality is an abomination.”

@netyra: SMH Not Cool

@anikaon_urmind: I Don’t Think So…Soo Not Cool! :/

Ugh, enough of this shit. There are a lot of supporters too. Let’s hear from a couple, at least:

@gnarly_ky My 185th reason I love you Bey

@fiercelili Yayayyayayayayayya Beyonce gay marriage

@lesson_reason I love me gay nd all snap snap @baddiebey

And on and on they go. *smh*
