Dusty Springfield Comes Out:

Dusty Springfield considered herself to be bisexual said in 1970, "I couldn't stand to be thought of as a big butch lady. But I know that I'm as perfectly capable of being swayed by a girl as by a boy." This was quite a thing to admit in 1970, just one year after the Stonewall Riots.

@Miley_Lovato, γιατί δεν υπάρχουν Έλληνες καλλιτέχνες σε αυτήν τη λίστα, τόσο τελευταίοι είμαστε σε όλα;
Μάνος Χατζιδάκις, Γιώργος Μαζωνάκης Γιώργος Τσαλίκης και πολλοί άλλοι ειδικά αν πας από Κρήτη μεριά θα βρεις πολύ καλά σύκα τον Αύγουστο! Wink smile
Gay, coca και μπουζούκι, ο συνδυασμός που φτιάχνει τα αστέρια που λατρεύει ο νεοέλληνας.  Shades smile

Even if you've said it differently, don't mention the word "figs" again, we all know what you meant.

Is Alexander Rybak gay?


or at least Eurovision gay. he said before he won that his heart was "occupied by a man"... although, some people probably lie to win since this is a gay contest. perhaps we won't know until we see him with a guy haha ha

Εντελώς ρατσιστικο αυτο που ειπε η κουκουβάγια... λεςκαι ζούμε στο 1900.. ακου "συκα". Ειναι υποτιμητικος ορος. Ο καθενας κανει ο.τι θελει στη ζωη του και ολα θεωρουνται φυσιολογικα. Οτιδηποτε αλλο ειναι ομοφοβικο.

líadanlíadan    Sun, 26/07/2020 - 01:37

What's the issue, you referring to what Makis said? how is being last at everything 'racist'? We all know he meant to say "f*gs" but thought we wouldn't get it by saying "figs" instead (and you're right, that term isn't acceptable either).

Και εντελώς λανθασμένη η εκτίμησή σου γιατί μάλλον δεν κατάλαβες και έβγαλες βιαστικά συμπεράσματα...
Ασφαλώς ο όρος "σύκα" είναι μειωτικός αλλά απευθύνεται κάπου συγκεκριμένα, δεν αφορά τους ομοφυλόφιλους που έχουν σωστή συμπεριφορά και κυρίως αξιοπρέπεια και έχουν ενσωματωθεί επιτυχώς στο κοινωνικό σύνολο αλλά απευθύνεται σε κάποιους άλλους με προκλητική συμπεριφορά που φτάνει σε βαθμό χυδαιότητας.
Νομίζω όλοι έχουμε στο νου τέτοια παραδείγματα.
Έχω γνωρίσει ομοφυλόφιλους με τόσο σωστή συμπεριφορά που κυριολεκτικά σε φέρνουν σε "δύσκολη θέση" καθώς νιώθεις μία υποχρέωση απέναντί τους ώστε να μην βρεθείς κάποια στιγμή και εκτεθείς για κάτι ή να μη δώσεις κάποια λάθος απάντηση.
Και είναι γνωστό ότι είναι ομοφυλόφιλοι αλλά ούτε το φωνάζουν ούτε προκαλούν γιατί είναι αξιοπρεπείς.
Νομίζω πως παντού τριγύρω μας υπάρχει ρατσισμός και ότι τα ταμπού που αφορούν τις σεξουαλικές προτιμήσεις είναι πλέον άνευ ουσίας και σημασίας όταν υπάρχουν πολύ σοβαρότερες μορφές διακρίσεων όπως ο φυλετικός ρατσισμός ο κοινωνικός ρατσισμός (που δεν αφορά μόνο η θέση του ατόμου στην κοινωνία αλλά και την οικονομική του κατάσταση που είναι ακόμη πιο σημαντικό) ο θρησκευτικός ρατσισμός κ.λ.π.
Και ειδικά με όλα αυτά τα θλιβερά που γίνονται στην Αμερική το όραμα του Μάρτιν Λούθερ Κινγκ είναι πιο επίκαιρο από ποτέ άσχετα αν η ίδια η φύση έκανε τον άνθρωπο έτσι φτιαγμένο ώστε για να είναι χορτάτος αυτός μερικοί άλλοι θα πρέπει να πεινάνε και να υποφέρουν:
