Just to let you know how narrow-minded some people around me are.

My friend Tina told me this story yesterday:

She was in the car with our friend Marcus and Queen came on the radio. Marcus turned it off imediately and said: "Queen... I hate them!!!"
Tina asked: "Why?" Marcus said: "Because their singer was gay!...and because he's dead anyway!"

It makes me want to strangle him the next time I see him!

The music is, IMO the only reason to dislike a band, but not the sexuality and even less the fact that the singer is dead.

Do you know people who hate Queen for other stupid reasons or have you ever heard more intolerant comments than this one?
Or am I the only one who knows idiots like this bloke?

a good kick in the nuts is all you need to do

and people tend to hate Queen, but it's not my fault i want to listen to them in the middle of the night really loud

friends are getting used to them, as someone once said "everyone's a Queen fan, they just haven't realized", i like FM, George Michael, and some Pet shop boy songs, so they always think "gay", i coudln't care less

The best thing to do in such circumstances is to gloat inwardly.

When they get home, they will probably put 'Slipknot' on and shake their lonely brain cell to oblivion. While we listen to the genius of 'Seaside Rendezvous' and wallow in smug self-righteousness.

Thats what I got in college - "gay" comments all because I logged onto QZ everytime I used the Internet.

Pathetic.

narrow-minded is the right word for such people.
and of course lack of good taste ;-))
and also, many people used to say things like "Queen....nah not my taste at ALL!" but time passed by...and it happens very often that those same people suddenly say "oh yeah Queen...well, they've got some good songs...." - afraid to admit they were wrong or afraid to say they really DID like Queen, for whatever reason.

and not liking music because the man who sings is gay..well, I wonder where they go when they find out their hairdresser is gay. or their baker, the guy who repairs their car, the cassier in the supermarket, the insurance guy...etc!

either way, it's their loss! (and their problem!)

:)

"...afraid to say they really DID like Queen, for whatever reason."

Yeah, I think that happens pretty often. It might be the age in some cases. I think quite a lot of younger people don't like to admit that they like Queen (songs) because it's not quite their scene or because Queen were an old band - And thumbs up for all the very young fans here, I think to have such a good taste in music at such a young age and interest in an old band that had their biggest successes when they weren't even born is remarkable!

I also think what many people think of in the first place when they hear the name Queen - and that is really sad - is "Freddie - Gay - Aids". And THIS is so narrow-minded! Queen was a ROCK Group, it was all about music but some people just don't seem to be able to look a bit deeper into things.

I don't care what other people say either. All my friends know that Queen are my favourite band and that I also have some Elton John stuff at home, that I like George Michael's old stuff, too, etc...

And not so long ago I told everyone that I wanted Adidas boxing shoes like Freddie Mercury used to wear on stage. All I got was strange looks and comments but who cares?

PS: I found them in London - 110 pounds. I bought cheaper ones that look similar... ;-)

Some time ago I overheard some guys in my school talking about Queen. They were mentioning some songs and mostly saying how great they are. Of course there was this one guy who kept repeating all the time that Radio Ga Ga is so gay and that it's the worst song ever written, because it's soooo gay.

I really had to force myself not to strangle him :-)

they are just jelouse and envious because the stupid bands that they listen to aren't as great as Queen were......i get the same respone from my friends also espacially when i start talking about Queen or when a queen song comes up they start saying Salem we're not gay...and i just hated it when they say that, but i just reply with a cool answer and say u love Tupac or whoever is the "Rapper" that u listen to right? they say yes so i say and he's a niggar right, so does that make u a niggar also ??!! so they just shut up after that. ;)

Keep in mind that i'm not being racist or anything i'm just giving an example that the image dosen't affect the music.


that's enough about me, now, what do you think of me ?
