Music Discussion

Wed 14 July 2010

So I was sitting on the bus to go home when I had the idea for this back-and-forth between these two characters, one a prominent right-wing gay-basher type and his friend-of-sorts, who I will call A and B respectively:

B: I'm surprised to find that you like house music, since house - and especially the funky house you listen to - pretty much descends thematically from disco which, despite being co-opted by the mainstream in outings like Saturday Night Fever and the Bee Gees, was primary oriented towards gay nightclubs and patrons.

A: And your point is...?

B: You like music for fags, in your own words.
