    , I don't listen to music where a guy is singing about sexing another dude [...] Do you listen to jams about dudes sexing up dudes?

    why not?
    Because penetration (PIV and PIA) is inherently problematic.

    haha! Nice tune. I can see that some people clearly haven't been paying attention to what I've been saying. It's not a genre I go out of my way to listen to, but i ain't mad at it. Not telling FO to pack it up, just saying I think it's going to be a poor career choice. I hope it's not. I hope I'm wrong.

    I don't watch gay male porn either. (CousinLarrry's going to freak because, after all, if it's hot bodies and good sex, who cares who's doing it, right Larry?) I also don't watch Glee or 95% of the shows on Bravo. Not my thing. Not sure why it's that hard to understand?

    "Genre"?
    So you wont listen to FO because you don't listen to R&B?
    Or because you don't listen to music made by gay men?

    Either way you seem to be limiting yourself.
    As has been pointed out, (repeatedly) there is great music in every genre made by gay men*.
    And there is extremely popular music made by gay men.

    Instrumental music is all about something. Usually love.
    Do you skip over the Billy Strayhorn compositions?

    *And LGBTQ, though in hip hop and country they remain mainly closeted.

    Bon Vivant,
    Do you think you would like Channel Orange if you were none the wiser?
    And, did you like ULTRA?

    Perhaps it's your bizarre insistence that he can only write about "dudes sexing up other dudes".

    Are they mp3 only?

    Yes.

    You show me where I said or implied anything like that. Please. Otherwise, you need to fall back. Get off my nuts.

    Maybe it's your implied assertion that he won't even touch that subject that's bizarre. You think he's only singing about banging chicks in the clurb, or novacane? Now that he's out? What the fuck are you smoking? It's like none of you fools are familiar with R&Bs; history of pushing lyrical limits when it comes to singing about fucking? But, yeah. FO won't do it. I mean he just came out extremely publicaly, but he won't sing jams about it and what it means, or the dude he says he's in love with. Good for him if he does. I'm not buying that 12". ahem.

    Good on FO for having the courage to be himself, but not everyone is buying the next record.

    Ok, subgenre. Is that better for you? I doubt it.

    I'm not limiting a thing about myself, thanks though. I don't watch gay male porn either. You must (not that there's anything wrong with that) because you wouldn't want to be limiting yourself, right? Spare me the "your limiting yourself" garbage.

    What the fuck? Where did I say that gay men don't make good music? I'm talking FOs career, and the fact that I'm not into songs where the dude is singing about being in love with another dude. Some people here thknk FO isn't going to do a single song about it. Bizarre.

    None the wiser to what? That their songs are about men? And they're men, who love men? Sure.

    I like gay artists. I'm really into house music. It's not the personal gayness of the artist that turns me off.

    Never heard of ULTRA. Plaese to educate.

    Read your own posts for fuck's sake.

    And stop imagining that I'm "on your nuts" - it's creepy.

    Nostalgia, Ultra. FO's "mixtape" from last year.

    It looks like Channel Orange is available on itunes already.

    Not necessarily. If I picture you surfing or walking on your hands during this, um, encounter, it's good for a laugh or two.

    This is what you do for laughs?

    Um, OK.

    The Fiona Apple album that just came out is harder than this record. I'm not hearing the gay angst.

    Honestly, I think there was just one terrible look, everyone else seemed fairly sensible. So far I like what I have heard of the new LP.
