Twelve Days Of Holiday Bullshit

1 comment on Twelve Days Of Holiday Bullshit

OMG why didn't i know about the stars' cover of fairytale of new york? (it's also one of my great contradictions in life that one of my favorite christmas songs includes a homophobic slur...bah)

I mean, for one thing, Stars Is For Fags. Also, I've found solace in acknowledging that the song is very clearly sung from the perspective of characters that are certainly not the singers. While I really don't like when straight people use that word, I think the writing, even in the original, is emulating a very specific personality type, while not necessarily celebrating it or saying it's okay for straight people to use that word.
