MESSAGES FROM MORRISSEY on MORRISSEY CENTRAL
He's absolutely correct. And not alone. Marc Almond, James Dreyfus, Simon Callow, Simon Fanshawe have all criticised the trans activist ideologues (most of whom aren't even trans) and been labelled 'transphobic' for doing so. Many trans campaigners have also criticised the same ideology that is putting trans rights back by 30 years.Turns out Boy George got shit for wrongthink, too:
Boy George Called Transphobic for Hating on Modern Pronoun UsageThe Culture Club front man, who was once a pioneer in unconventional gender expression, spouted hateful sentiments about respecting people's pronouns.www.advocate.com
He is, of course, completely correct.
He's a human being. Is there a 'purity' test people still have to pass before we are allowed to 'like' them? I gave up beliefs like that when I became agnostic at about the age of 12.
Right on.What's amazing about the whole thing is that despite this, somehow Boy George has largely avoided being cancelled to a far greater extent than Morrissey, whose only crime was saying some off-brand stuff about immigration.
David Hoyle is a 'gay ex-drug addict' and Moz is a big fan of him. I'm not sure if Moz would condemn Mr O'Dowd for any of those things you mention above. Maybe Moz is attracted to figures like Hoyle because they appeal to a side of his character that he has never been able to express - except in his lyrics?No, they aren't
They are both Irish/English like loads of brits and are "camp" music acts who worshipped David Bowie and are mouthy shits. That's it. End of
George is a full-on gay ex-drug addict, who goes on any show that pays him ( look at the show we are talking about)
George is a complete attention seeker and although a good singer and songwriter he is in no way as poetic as M or as iconic
I like BG but he is a real money grabber who is full of shit. I mean he was a Buddhist that chained a rent boy to a radiator. He is just about the pose He goes on about being a rebel who says what he wants= but he plays the game as much as any other light entertainer. I mean he's been on a few reality shows. He is the direct opposite of M in loads of ways
By the way who is in the profile picture, Andrew lincoln?
I was never a fan of Culture Club - although I did like Boy George's influence on moving society forward in relation to the questioning of traditional gender roles. And I always thought as a pop song this was quite a nice sentiment to get out there to the 12-year old record buying public:
I haven't seen the word 'caveat' used in that way before. Thanks for the typical edification!That is such a slimy post...
Boy George used to caveat supporting Morrissey & people are beginning to drop it - so I'd like him to keep moving in that direction.
Don't be too edified - it's simply bad grammar.I haven't seen the word 'caveat' used in that way before. Thanks for the typical edification!
Wary of reputed and recent faux pas from this source, I hesitated over clicking on this link but watching pays off. Besides his great voice and being a hunky humorous gentleman, Morrissey's compositions and antics are helpful for thinking, feeling and living, for working things out under constricting conditions, according to many over the years, and as Boy George indicates. 'You were good in your time and we thank you'. And it's still his time, so no scarpering just yet please!
he said the being tied to a radiator bit was made up by the current bun and the like.not buying it.And he was also jailed for 15 months for holding a male rent boy prisoner by chaining him to a wall and beating him with a metal chain.
the crying game was a very good song.He sees a lot of Morrissey in himself - and vice-versa. Both gave compelling interviews that set them apart from their contemporaries of the time. They were also the sons of tough Irish working-class fathers and had mothers who doted over them, for whom they could no wrong.
Both also liked to be deliberately awkward, periodically pressing the self-destruct button to spice things up. Some of the Culture Club stuff I can still enjoy, but his solo stuff feels insipid and rather forced to me.
Did he really have to hurt him?he said the being tied to a radiator bit was made up by the current bun and the like.not buying it.
iv said for years that if there was three judges with the things M has said in front of them,would they find him racist,some things are over the top but racist i will leave that to the judges.Right on.
I always think of the blog post someone did, when they mentioned the things M said, then actually included links. so you can hear what M said. They then mention the fact, that M has broken no law. Yet is treated worse than someone who has. Its a very good pro M argument and worth a million Fiona articles
was only a matter of Time Clock Of The Heart.Did he really have to hurt him?
Boy George, David Bowie, Annie Lennox ... they all pushed back against gender norms. They were clever, daring and brilliant. They made it OK to be androgynous. They eviscerated stereotypes instead of reinforcing them.
It's a funny world in which Boy George and Marc Almond are bigots and people like Dylan Mulvaney are heroes.
No he's not.BG is a big Smiths / Moz fan and always has been.
He's also a deeply unpleasant, lying, conniving f***-up, but Central won't care about that.
No he's not.
At least in those early days he > was < a total and utter pain in the arse, a right drama queen. And more besides.
But since 2000 he's mellowed with age.
He's quite nice now - honestly !
I don't think many on here share your assessment of Karen's argument, goinghome, but you are entitled to your opinion. I think the general consensus is that Karen is well meaning and her heart is in the right place - but that, at best, she sees the world through rose tinted glasses and, at worst, is verging on delusional, with a penchant for mental gymnastics. And I think posts like that by Mike Rourke above deserve a more coherent response.Watch out, gashonthenail, before you're thoroughly pounded again!
