I'm not very on the ball, hadn't heard it before.
but fuck me, I wish I'd stuck to my guns and never investigated that band.
Shame that almost everything else they've done is awful.
Its just a shame that "untrue" is a homophobic asshole who insists in using the word gay as an insult. Sorry I thought this was a music site, not one for dickhead fascists.
What the fuck is that Cameron poster???
Practically a mince.
Its not even funny! Using gay as a derogatory term is homophobic. I'm sorry, am I on the tory website?? I come on here to escape all the homophobic bullshit and see that there is a minority of nazis intent on making LGBT people feel threatened or belittled.
DiS are still not acting enough on this. Had you come out with racist comments, you'd all have been kicked off. But its ok to hate gays? Cos thats exactly what you are doing using the word gay as an insult.
Surely Trans is a separate issue to sexuality. But that's a debate for a whole different time.
Look, I'm sure no offence was meant and you are right that using gay as an insult is wrong. Still, I can see why the word was used to describe The Drums. The song is not only carefree (gay) but also really quite camp in its delivery.
is that I didn't even use 'gay' in a derogatory sense. Read the thread title again. Not derogatory. Not an insult. Shut the fuck up.
You wouldn't have pointed this song out for being black or feminine, you're just waving the homophobia baton again.
And I will not shut the fuck up, and my "stupid little rant" is entirly justified - see above re: feminine and black.
^this is one of my favourite posts in DiS history.
not sure why.
when it comes to age or class though.
And that's ok is it?
What gets me is that people think discrimination is only against women, LGB and 'ethnic minorities'
who clearly just leapt on this for the 'gay' comment. I completely agree with you about the difference between preference and discrimination though.
I just got the feeling that if someone had said something along the lines of "The Rolling Stones are too old and need to stop recording/touring" or "The Enemy are too working class" then neither him nor anyone else would have gotten so uppity.
Wouldn't have mentioned anything but he had to go and drag gender and ethnicity into it. If you want to open that can of worms then you gotta be prepared to look at all forms of prejudice not just the 'hot potatoes'
the thread that Everett True http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everett_True started and it turned into a big gay/homophobe/racist/sexist/'ist debate.
SO... he (dis-integration) was being silly and saying something to the effect of "where's Everett now, he'll be here any minute, to get all offended start up another debate on the matter."
You should read that thread, one of my favorite of 2009, if only for the trainwreck of it all.
It was a wonder of a thread, if a little painful to witness. Apologies if I was being a bit obscure, should probably have quantified that whole thing.
Regarding Everett, it is THE Everett True, yeah. He took to spamming the boards with links to his blog for a while, and took quite severe exception to someone criticising that. It wasn't that he was being a homophobe, it was that he flamed someone else for supposedly being homophobic/bigoted for using 'gay' in a casual way, then proceeded to denounce the guy by name on his blog. Pretty poor show for someone who should be above all that really.
Has a peculiar etymology and can mean many different things. Look at the Oxford English dictionary for more, but one definition means, simply, "lame". Now, it doesn't take much to understand from the context of the original post that "lame" is meant here. It sounds to me as though you are looking for something to get offended about, which is, frankly, pathetic. Now shut up.
although he's obviously just craving the outrage
words evolve. that's what they do. gay is now split pretty evenly between cock in ass gay and i do not enjoy this gay.
faggot is going the same way too, but it's gonna be a good while before everyone's onboard for that one
They should just jew off and stop being so black about it.
in the older sense of the word: happy, carefree etc
But it is also kinda shit. In the modern sense of the word: not much good etc
This is the only song I've heard
too bad if you guys think it sounds gay
i wanted to say... usually i'm not watching the video whilst listening to the song so i couldn't care less about the video. Furthermore, music videos are so irrelevant these days, at least in my opinion.
the dudes teeth are so white
i recognise this song from an ad or two, or maybe 6music. it is good in a sort of sub bloc party mgmt way
but not much more
