What is it with former members of The Smiths saying stupid things? Last week it was guitarist Johnny Marr and today it’s Morrissey:

‘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.’

Perhaps Mr Steerpike should award a weekly Big Mouth Strikes Again prize.

    Perhaps they could him in charge of the female LimpDumb activists. They could bore each other to death with their mad sanctimony, secure in the knowledge that behaviour was never less than appropriate, and touching of legs always quite accidental.

    Biggestaspidistra tells us that “Morrissey means well” no he bloody well doesn’t, he is a
    self opinionated all things English and conservative loathing vegetarian (or is it vegan) gobshite.

      Couldnt possibly have described him better.

      • David Ossitt

        Thank you.

  • Biggestaspidistra

    Morrissey means well but Hadrian, the Spartans, Alexander the Great don’t help his case.

      …and then there are all those lesbians in the armed forces these days. And, well, the Navy has been more or less exclusively homosexual for centuries. 🙂 (If Morrisey can deal in stereotypes, so can we.)

    Dennis Nilsen (15 victims), Jeffrey Dahmer (17), Luis Garavito (140) and so on. Is this Morrissey person famous by the way?
