Morrissey then added: “Well, to be more specific, if more men shared my exact beliefs and morals and looked more like me, talked like me, etc. Then there wouldn’t be any wars.” Via Rookie:
What political causes mattered most to you back then, and are they still important to you now?
War, I thought, was the most negative aspect of male heterosexuality. 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.

What music or movies or artists do you recommend to your teenage fans today that they might not know about?
The arts have diminished, because we are now living through a time when we are encouraged not to think. No one making music wants to waste time struggling with art. A group like the Sex Pistols would never again be allowed to slip through, and there is no such thing in 2013 as a popular artist who sets their own terms for success. Whether it be Beyoncé or Justin Bieber, we see singers who have absolutely nothing to offer anyone as they walk offstage clutching three Grammys in each hand.
