Quote# 79685

(regarding the song "We Are the Champions," by Queen)


While the phrase is a perfect rally cry for victors in competition, such a matter had nothing to do with the writing of that song. It was a song to encourage they who choose to practice homosexuality; calling the practitioners of homosexuality (the "we") champions whether merited or not. Freddie, a self-proclaimed practitioner of homosexuality, was singing encouragement to others who likewise choose to practice homosexuality, encouraging them to think of themselves as champions, about being fighters for others who likewise choose to practice homosexuality. Another phrase of the song, "...and we'll keep on fighting till the end" was not about competing until that last yard or that last goal, basket or buzzer, but was about death ... his own ... in never-give-up defiance.

"a self-proclaimed practitioner of homosexuality"

is that the exact opposite of a self proclaimed practitioner of heterosexuality? I dont really call myself that. Why dont you just say he was openly gay instead of stressing needless words like that?

So the song is better than I thought, then?

So another Homosexual Militant is calling for murder of the "breeders" by starting a gay civil war.

Isn't that the homosexual party line?

So instead, you'd prefer played over sporting events' Tannoy systems (to gee up the crowd), "Rock & Roll (Part 2)".

By Gary Glitter.

Gotcha.

As it happens, Freddie Mercury was the only one of the band Queen who was gay. So what the hell are you talking about?

Do fundamentalists think of nothing by gay sex? Are you all raving queens with nothing but perverted thoughts racing through your fevered minds all day and man-inspired wet dreams all night? It certainly seems like it.

As a gay man, I have to say I occasionally envy the colour of your lurid imaginations. It must bring you all the most wonderful fantasies. Me, my sex life is monogamous and no better or no worse than it should be. But I imagine some of the spice that inflames Tom Carder's thoughts would certainly lend some more excitement. OTOH, the disadvantages of fundyism are too high a price to pay even for extra spice.

"By Gary Glitter."


Actually, given Gary's criminal record of having kiddie porn, and given the inordinate number of kiddie-diddlers among the Religious Right, you may be onto something here.

Guess what? Every song written by a gay man is not necesarilly about homosexuality. ""We Are the Champions" was built on audience response, with Brian May (a heterosexual)stating; 'We wanted to get the crowds waving and singing. It’s very unifying and positive'". That's ALL it's about, unless you want to read things into it that aren't there.

Let's assume for a moment that you're correct.

So what?

I once heard it rendered on a kazoo. It wasn't particularly stirring.

This is your only warning...
Tread lightly on the memory of Mr. Freddie Mercury.



The world's greatest rock band.

Never giving up? The horror. People need to make sure that their children never listen to this filth.

Boy, you fundies sure think about homosexuality alot, moreso than even the homosexuals do. I'll grant that rock songs often have innuendo and double meanings, hell, many songwriters take great pride in making their lyrics mean different things to different people, but what meaning you extract from a song is based on the way you think. Which brings us right back to: why do fundies think about homosexuality so much?

"Another phrase of the song, "...and we'll keep on fighting till the end" was not about competing until that last yard or that last goal, basket or buzzer, but was about death ... his own ... in never-give-up defiance."

And that's a bad thing?

[After reading a long post decrying Freddie Mecury.]

Please, everyone, excuse me while I go and beat the shit out of this fucker to the tune of "Don't Stop Me Now".


EDIT:

@Syb Actually, that's probably quite true; one already has, ironically one by the name of Brian May.

So not only is he one of the greatest guitarists ever (and the one I've always wanted to play like, but I never practiced guitar), he's also a Doctor of astrophysics!

For me, personally, that's even more awesome, because I'm a scientist and he's a doctor in my field! Just, just ... fuck yes, you know what I mean?

Seriously, the guy is my hero of sorts. He has achieved all of my ambitions.

And now I sound like an idiotic fanboy.

RIP Freddie, we miss you mate.

Aww, I kind of like this interpritation of the song. Sadly it came from this asshole who sees it as a negative.

For the last 25 years I am a Queen fan. I knew early on that Freddy was bi-sexual, so what! He was a great performer and a good person (with a great sense of humor). And Queen made great music. Queen and Freddy are legends now and you are and always will be a big (intellectual)NOTHING.

@TGRWulf: Maybe it's sort of a "GOING TO FIGHT YOU FUCKERS UNTIL I DIE" kind of thing?

@ Felis --

Brian May will eventually have to team up with Greg Graffin (singer/songwriter for Bad Religion; he has a PhD in zoology).

Fucking Christ you people are crazy!

Wrong. Freddy was the vocalist. Brian was the songwriter.
Brian wrote "We are the champions" as an expression of his pride in his own school producing yet another Nobel prize winner.
Brian was the token hetrosexual in the band.
