    Default The Guardian go bigot on Tchaikovsky

    the Ministry Of Truth's media writes this - http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...vsky-sexuality - whereas first of all Tchaikovsky was not gay and there's not a single evidence to prove otherwise.

    secondly they say the movie director 'Kirill Serebrennikov, a respected filmmaker' which is a total lie, for he has not yet made a decent film to be respected for.

    no wonder all this came from those who promote outright shoddy stuff - http://www.guardianbookshop.co.uk/Be...NTCMP=mic_3140

    There goes Round II...

    I've got an infraction from Round I though, so I'll better stay out of this...

    It's even on the first page, but when a guy's hot, he's hot. What I mean by that is, um, that he has to post what's on his mind, ASAP. Shoot first, in a sense, and ask questions later.

    I cannot defend this post if challenged. Clearly I've had too much Mountain Dew. The yellow #5 or whatever is doing something to my, um, brain.

    Are you accusing the western media of being engaged in a massive conspiracy to portray Tchaikovsky as gay? As a way of getting back at Russia or something?

    Do you think Tchaikovsky's letters are fake?

    Why does it matter if Tchaikovsky was gay or not? It almost sounds like you think there is something wrong with being gay.

    - good question, btw. Tchaikovsky never confessed himself as being gay, so this is why his not a gay.
