I'm sure T&S and AM are doing great. They're both doing this because they are activists for that community.

... "then you're never allowed to voice your thoughts on anything ever because some internet commenter will accuse you of doing it for publicity."

I'll finish that thought for you.

LJG and T&S are fantastic role models for the LGBT community. They create a visible LGBT presence in the music scene that is not easily found. They let their LGBT identities influence their music in an overt way, which is powerful when so often LGBT musicians have shied away from sexual topics in music for fear of alienating heterosexist fans. I do wish that more PoC LGBT musicians would get the level of attention that these musicians get, but I'm glad to see these artists representing and leading the LGBT community.

If you're talking about Laura, remember that gender =/= sexuality

Surprisingly, the first page is all pretty supportive, and on highest post count. However I do remember it getting pretty bad. Also damn, 47 pages.

Against Me! and Tegan & Sara's latest albums were the highest charting of their respective careers, so I don't understand what you mean.
