Bits on Morrissey, Reagan

Y’all know I love the economic issues, and sometimes avoid the “gay” issues (as unprofitable – heh). But hey, this is a gay blog, and courtesy of reader Peter Hughes, we have a couple of gay-themed tidbits.

First, the irrepressible, he-won’t-come-out-but-everyone-knows-anyway singer Morrissey enlightens us that if we had more gay men, we’d somehow have fewer wars:

If more men were homosexual, there would be no wars, because homosexual men would never kill other men, whereas heterosexual men love killing other men.

Where has Morrissey been hiding? Let’s set aside the famous gay male serial killers, let’s even set aside the ancient Greeks: The fact remains that some of the most aggressive (and best) men out there are gays who have made a career of the U.S. military.

And I say, good on them! Real men protect people from evil, and the roughness and aggression of the good men who protect all of us from terrorists, criminals, etc. may (if under good regulation) be a virtue. Sensitive, artistic men are also needed, but I don’t want a world where the type that Morrissey seems to prefer – the effete, self-indulgent eunuch who protects no one except himself and maybe a few cows – is dominant.

Next, we hear that ABC is ready to produce a Reagan-hating mini-series:

The Hollywood Reporter relayed on Thursday that “Mere days after the Academy Awards, ABC Studios has bought rights to David France’s film,” How to Survive a Plague, a hard-left documentary on AIDS activism in the Reagan years, when the Left claimed Reagan wanted them all to die off…

Clearly, the Gay Left’s mythology of Reagan-as-gay-hater is going to be with us awhile. Fortunately, no amount of repetition of a myth can alter the truth.

  1. “a hard-left documentary on AIDS activism in the Reagan years, when the Left claimed Reagan wanted them all to die off…”

    Good God……………are we still fighting this battle? Everyone knows Dianne Feinstein let gay men die through politically correct stupidity. It was Reagan who actually tried to do something.

  2. I see a bigger meme at play: portray someone in the recent past for whom the younger generation [read: the pop culture dominant consumers] has little-to-no first hand knowledge of as a grand intolerant bigot to be contrasted with The First Gay President (as Newsweek has proclaimed) and let the conclusion be obvious. Oh, and by the way, Reagan was a Republican, so when one hears the term “Reagan Republican”—well, do we have to spell it out for you?
