In America, people are constantly making fun of Queen, and looking down on Queen because of Freddie's homosexuality. I was wathcing Vh1 today, and there was a shoe about celebrities coming out of the closet. While this show was on, they began to play Queen songs. It isn't that that was offencive or anything, but they just need to lay off!!!! Do any of you agree?

Wasn't there just a thread about this? I agree, though, it does suck, but you can't argue with all of the idiots in the world. People do need to get over it, it's pathetic that the very issue, among other things, lost Kerry the election, really. The US is doing a wonderful job earning its(our) reputation as the most homophobic contry in the world, but you know what? They can listen to their shite music all they like and we can be the priviledged few that love Queen. Their loss. I know there are other American Queen fans here, so it's not all of us.....

I've got nothing more to add than "I agree".

"America sucks..."

I dunno, I think it's the military-industrial complex that sucks. Or blows. And all that entails. Anyway, President Eisenhower warned us about it in his farewell address January 1961. The result: laissez-faire morality and political correctness create a society driven by alternating cycles of amusement and consumption, driven by scapegoating behavior (read: racial prejudice, homphobia, etc), energized by sexual aggression. Basic capitalism.

I'm so glad I can pop in a Queen cd, light another "cigarette", and let myself go...

I think the US is just a slowly evolving culture. A Kurt Cobain quote might fit: "The world is run by dinosaurs. They will die, and we will move into their houses."

Well.. I won't put up too much of a fuss on that.. I agree that most of America is for shit.. but there are a few of us around that don't deserve to be put in the same pot..

Americans and MTV are hypocrites. I don't want to hear the times change crap! Freddie and the lads get cast out for dressing in drag while my fellow Americans enjoyed watching Madonna and the skank Britney lesbo lip lock! Queen rock!

A lot of ignorant dinosaurs still see male homosexuality as a threat. They're blinded by their (wrong)-wing hate filled dogma. We're a slowly evolving species, and unfortuately, have to be patient while these people catch up.

That's America for you.
Queen are known as stupid British fags.
Especially in the rock world that just burts with testosterone.

I'm an American too....
And that is how I feel.
Not all of us (as I stated in the parenthesis that look oddly similar to these ones) are like that, but generalization can be true for some part.

But I guess with the way things are going, America will start to suck too. I mean....who knows? Homeland Security could be reading all of our posts on here looking for terrorists....heh.

I'm from America and I have to agree somewhat! I LOVE QUEEN and I feel that Freddie's homosexuality had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the way he sang! People tend to pick on those who are different in the slightest ways and it really is a shame. The way I look at it is Who Cares!! What ever sexual preference Freddie had was his business and his business alone. That made him no less of a person. I'm looking forward to the day that I can meet him in Heaven!!

americans are just way too paranoid and take things too seriosly. they obsess over the war and made way to much of a deal out of the whole superbowl incedent. i don't think as a whole that they are as accepting of other cultures and ideas as other countries are. they should stop acting like they rule the world and their opinion is always right, not that this is the people but rather those in charge

Yes,in some ways. For instance: the arrogant way of pushing other countries and other thinking peolple. The government lies to make sense of war, but of course they need money and oil, because no other country don`t cares so much about ökologie and ressources than america I think. Other point: Almost all countries avoid landmines except america. Buisiness is number one and worth to make the whole world die. This fallen society thinks that they will get wings while they fall. Anyway, this is the way people outside america see the politic. It has nothing to do with you people in it. I´m sure you as kind, peacefully,tolerant, nice etc. like everybody else. And in the past America did a great job and helped to build a free thinking world to live in...

I think some of them are just pure ignorant, some of them really don't like Queen's (or rock)music, but some of them are really narrow-minded double standard hypocrites. They are afraid to admit that a GAY man can actually sing better, perform better than their MACHO men in rock music. They feel threatened, so they have to label Queen as a gay band and try to ignore the greatness of their music and performances.

Just take a look of Elton John case: He's gay, and a bitchy one actually. He is not only accepted by Americans, but also embraced. He's everywhere nowadays. Shows in Las Vegas, guest appearances in American idol and Extreme make over home edition, he's even talking with ABC for a sitcom based on his life. Recently, he even got the 27th annual Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contribution to American culture through the performing arts! They even call him "Sir Elton"(I know he's knighted, but still...) What's up with that? I think they just don't feel threatened by Elton, so he can do whatever he wants.

So now tell me those people are NOT narrow-minded double standard hypocrites.
