Dude, you're the one bringing it up and dragging it out. I assure you my thinking he was "never really gay" has nothing to do with any sort of homophobia or unwillingness to accept others' sexuality. In fact, I have been trying to convince plenty of my male friends that they are gay despite their total non-cooperation.
In reply to:
but to claim you're gay you've gotta at least have some sort of confirmation.
Are we still talking about Flea and Anthony here? They said they really wanted to be gay, and tried their hardest, but found they weren't made for it--they never claimed to be gay.
As for Bowie, well gee, he said that he was "gay and always has been" while married and expecting a child, so that tells you how much he cared for strict accuracy of terms at the time. (By your own definition, that would make him at most bisexual.)
In reply to:
if you have to force yourself to do it despite not really wanting to it could be either self depreciating or alot of work.. doesn't sound seductive
Well, that's why most people give up on it then. But really, you can't imagine someone being so seduced by the idea of a particular type of romance that they throw themselves into it hoping it will work, somehow?
But yes, yes, Bowie experimented with his "bi side" and then chose the straight. Because his bi side was like, nearly non-existent when it came to the nitty gritty.
Anyway, let's go back to talking about the prettiness of Mika now!
Silly pants, yay!
