Bit of casual anti-LGBT, specifically biphobia, at Morrissey's expense there from gordy.It makes him bisexual not "greedy", do you live in 1972?
They haven't because it would be an absurd thing to say.iv never seen a straight person on here write i think M is heterosexual.
read above.They haven't because it would be an absurd thing to say.
Mozzer is "humasexual" according to his own words i.e. he's attracted to humans.
It's hardly a secret that The Smiths and Morrissey's lyrics and imagery is laden with queer iconography and symbolism. No idea how you can possibly deny this. Even more troubling is why you'd like to deny this, and labelling Morrissey as "greedy" because of his sexuality.
That is not homophobic in any way and by shoehorning in your agenda again, you have missed the point completely. Johnny once said that the Smiths "liberated straight boys" from poisonous ideas of masculinity and that is exactly what this para was getting at - that they realised that men could form close friendships, dance together etc just for fun without it being done for sexual or political reasons. A freedom that women already had.This bit is incredibly homophobic:
“The two of them dancing together as men, but both being very feminine and, in Johnny’s case, quite androgynous, was incredibly powerful,” he says. “It felt to an adolescent audience that it was giving them agency to act differently – two men dancing together not in an overtly homoerotic or political way, but just having fun together in their own unique way.”
i never stole it,when you sing a smiths lyric are you stealing it,no you are quoting it."It was a joke" says Gordy, a joke he stole from Larry David, and totally not a reflection of his real thoughts on sexuality after he denied that there's anything queer about The Smiths.
Morrissey literally wrote about his same sex relationships in Autobiography, and referred to himself as humasexual. Also, some of Morrissey's recent lyrics (especially on Low in High School) were overtly sexual and it's not hard to imagine that he could be referring to same sex relationships considering what we know.i never stole it,when you sing a smiths lyric are you stealing it,no you are quoting it.
the smiths imagery was when M was in his twenties,when was the last time he employed the same imagery,a long time ago.
you still going on about this,as broken records go you are thee gold medallistMorrissey literally wrote about his same sex relationships in Autobiography, and referred to himself as humasexual. Also, some of Morrissey's recent lyrics (especially on Low in High School) were overtly sexual and it's not hard to imagine that he could be referring to same sex relationships considering what we know.
You, with your fingers in your ears: "Morrissey is completely and utterly HETEROSEXUAL and EXTREMELY MASCULINE. There's nothing queer, sexual or homoerotic about his work!!!! I'M NOT GAY!!!! I'M NOT GAY!!!!"
Well said!This is such a stale argument. Who is the most 'gay'? Where are we - the school playground? Although I suppose this is an online creche.
Lots of bands and lots of singers have written songs that speak to all aspects of the human experience - Lou Reed, The Buzzcocks, The Smiths, Morrissey, The Pogues, Suede, Placebo...the list is endless. The Smiths are for everyone. Morrissey is for everyone. Labels are for tins of beans. Moz as an artist has never wanted to be limited to one aspect of the human experience or human sexuality. We are not defined by what we do in the bedroom.
I agree it was Used by “some” in the “community”, however is is mostly used as a slur.Queer was a word the gay community used as a code before it was a slur.
This book is great & sneaks in a few hidden Morrissey references.
I really do think the reason the Guardian has ended up shaming itself by persecuting Morrissey is his sexuality - which is also why he'll be vindicated.

Can we please stop using the word Queer.
As a “gay man” this word has connotations especially coming from straight people. It’s a slur and an insult. The Q in LGBTQ+ goes to show that the term is not interchangeable.
I’m old enough to remember and to have suffered from this as a hurtful insult for many years.
It’s not big and it’s not clever, and certain people on here seem to take joy in using it to be antagonistic to anyone who has a different opinion than them.
No I’m saying you’re wrong.Many people identify as queer and use the term though, so are you saying that all of those people are wrong and you are right?
