In a sweat, the ashen-faced singer declared: “Are you gay? No? Then f*** off! This is my culture!”
Then he claimed: “I’m not doing anything illegal. The police don’t even come up here any more.
“I’m a free man, I can do whatever I want. I’m not harming anyone.”
And according to Queerty, you’ve made similar claims.
George Michael has been quoted as saying in the past that he and Kenny have an open relationship, explaining it this way, “Gay relationships are a bit different. I’m sure we’ll be allowed to roam if we want to. But we love each other dearly.”
News to me, and apparently to your partner since he’s called off the wedding.
As with other high profile gay couples, people tend to either look at them as examples of what same sex relationships are like, or they project their preformed opinions on those couples. But famous gay couples aren’t any more an example of all gay couples than, say, Brittney Spear’s marriage(s) are examples of all heterosexual couples.
I’m gonna try real hard not to be judgmental here, so as not to get into a whole other debate. Like I said, if that’s what works for you and your partner, and (like you said) you aren’t hurting anyone, then do as you please. But, remarks like yours do hurt other people, George, because they only reinforce prejudices and assumptions we’re constantly fighting already
Besides, there are a lot of us you don’t speak for, including myself and my husband. So next time you emerge from an al fresco frolic, just own up to the fact that you were doing what you wanted to do. Period. And leave the rest of us out of it.
