Sorry I've just gotta say this....
Sthum has the right to say he is NOT gay as much anyone else has the right to say they ARE gay. Otherwise where is the equality that is
He has the right state a matter of fact on this forum that he is not gay.
The same right that the 1500 people that march thought Truro every August, and probably many other cities, declaring they are gay and proud of it (of which my brother and his partner take part being gay themselves) do with pride. I have no issue with them, in fact it's quite a good day.
If he had typed George Best is a good looking man and I am gay, what difference would that make. He's mearly stating that as a heterosexual male he can recognise George Best as an attractive man, which he was in his day (or is that being ageist).
My brother is here with me now working in the studio (he says hello everyone, say hello to Paul everyone) and he could see what the poster meant, he took no offence and would go as far to say its reactions like that which make divisions not bridge them.
By the way brother is GAY but can't see the fuss about George Best.
Sorry this forum probably should stick to music.
WOW... Well said gazola11!! Somebody had to... and it sure wasn't gonna be me...
It's amazing innit? Hugh has requested (on more than one occasion I think) that we drop this subject. However, some people just aren't getting it and seem determined to carry it on. Seems to me like a deliberate attempt to get the thread locked.
To quote Hugh:
"Can we drop the irrelevant gay comments now please?"
Now, if Andrew or whoever really want to discuss the subject, as they seem determined to do, that's fine - but perhaps the music lounge is a more appropriate place for such a thread, not the Music Business forum. This is, surprisingly, for music business. The clue's in the words so to speak.
So, could we please drop that subject and stick to the X-Factor?
