We all know Morrissey smokes the good shit a little too often and is always giving buckwild commentary on everyday life, but he’s taken it to a whole new level of WTF during a recent interview with teen website Rookie, during which he claimed that straight men “love killing” and that if all men were gay, there would be no war.
Shine on, you crazy diamond:
“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. They even get medals for it. Women don’t go to war to kill other women. Wars and armies and nuclear weapons are essentially heterosexual hobbies.”
I mean, like, okay – if we’re going to at all try to justify or understand these comments (I know, we definitely shouldn’t be), I guess I can sorta pick up what he’s putting down. Bros love being macho and are into guns and fighting and all that. But guess what? NOT ALL BROS LIKE THOSE THINGS. Just like not all women fawn over high heels and Ryan Gosling and not all gay guys are cross-dressing effeminate men who grew up wearing their mother’s lipstick and not all kids are brats (okay, most of them are). We can make as many swift generalisations as we’d like, but saying something like “heterosexual men love killing other men” as a grown ass adult who should have enough years on him to realise how stupid that is kind of blows my ass out of the H2O. Stop talking now, Morrissey.
