OK, here's a question from a heterosexual to the homosexuals on here: What do you guys think of One in a Million? For years we've had Axl's version, and the Media's version, even the Black community have had their say to some extent. But I've never heard what you think. Obviously, you won't all think the same, but I'm curious as to what the general consensus is.
OKay, i just listened to this song on youtube. Yeah, the part where Axl sings "And all the faggots, who come to this country. They got it so easy, but ill never understand them. All talking so differently, just sounds like something greek to me. they say lets get together and spread some disease." or something along those lines.
Well, its a good song. good rythm guitar lines. i dont know if he actually meant immigrants because of the reference to "all the faggots, who come to this country". i have a friend who says "shit, man thats gay." he doesn't mean it as gay like to make fun of me, its just used simply in that sense (he doesn't ever think about homosexuals when he says that). But I remember when Axl Rose did a duet with Elton John back in the early '90s because of a lot of bad rap he was getting due to everyone thinking he was homophobic. Axl said that he's not homophobic and that he has nothing against gays at all.
But to be honest, no gay person anywhere is ever to use this song as a comfort in anyway. it is hurtful at any rate just hear one of my favorite singers say something like that and the part where he sings "...but ill never understand them. Spread some disease"??
Queer as Folk was a terrible tv show because it stereotyped the whole gay community as raging sluts. im gay and have been with 5 guys in the last 6 years. its hard enough to be just a person, let alone something else on top of that. you get your straight woman who are sluts, you get your straight men who are sluts. you get your gay woman who are sluts, you get your get men who are sluts. you get your Good and Bad in every population.
Pawnshop-Guitars, why did you get me to review this song. i thought we where friends, now i feel like you punched me in the face... :'(
