Morrissey Doesn’t Think Gay Men Can Do What Straight Men Can Do

In what may be the most breathtakingly ignorant thing I’ve ever read on the internet, which is saying A LOT, Morrissey, former frontman of the Smiths, and arguably the world’s first EMO, told online magazine Rookie:

“War, I thought, was the most negative aspect of male heterosexuality. 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,”

Which sounds good at first because why would you want to kill another man when you’re busy grinding your junk against his ass while techno music pulsates to  the gyrations of your groin and glitter rains down from above? But historically speaking, plenty of gay men have been responsible for war and death, like the Greeks and the Romans where homosexuality was common and accepted amongst their leaders, as well as some famous generals and military leaders like Alexander the Great, Julius Ceaser, Lawrence of Arabia and Baron Von Steuben. Not to mention all the serial killers like Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy and Andrew Cunanan.

So really, not only is Morrisey’s assertion grossly inaccurate, saying a gay guy is incapable of killing another man is a little sexist. A gay person should go stab him just to prove him wrong.
