In Praise of Miley Cyrus

Yglesias » Miley Cyrus Delivers For LGBT Equality: "I think we should take the Miley Cyrus demographic more seriously than that. Celebrities risk alienating fans if they wade into partisan politics. But Cyrus knows perfectly well that among her core audience of young people, combatting anti-gay bigotry isn’t a divisive issue. For younger Americans, it’s just common sense. Whether or not her fans are able to vote in the 2012 election, they’ll be voting in 2014 or 2016 or 2018 and so forth for decades. And the fact of the matter is that there are a lot of politicians out there right now amassing a record on LGBT equity that horrifies the younger generation. That’s a big deal."
