    Default Is Mozart's music mostly just effeminate tea time music?

    The question doesn't need any clarification I think.

    It's not *just* effeminate tea time music. There's a lot more to it than that.

    (Actually, it drives me batty when people describe music as manly or effeminate.)

    The operative word here is "mostly."

    It's hard to see how anyone could argue against your well-conceived hypothesis.

    Now that I think of it, I agree with this sentence:

    "Mozart's music is most of the time effeminate tea time music."

    But not this:

    "Mozart's music is most of the time JUST effeminate tea time music."

    So I basically I agree with GreenMamba. I got pwned.

    Not being a tea drinker, I have no idea what happens at tea time. If it's similar to dinner time, there must be a lot of arguing, insulting, table pounding and food throwing.

    Is Mozart's music mostly just effeminate tea-time music?



    Key terms: "effeminate" and "tea-time"

    Short, insensitive, unperceptive redneck answer: yes

    Clarification: "Tea time" implies a diversion of the rich, powerful, and cultured. Also, 'tea time' is a cultured activity which sublimates our coarse human agression, especially the violent males of the species, so there is the implication of "elitist diversion" and "feminization" of (mostly) male human agression.

    Sort of question that never should be asked.

    Sarcastic answer: No, of course not. That's why they use it as training music in The Marines. It brings out that natural, male testosterone aggression. Also, it's good as marching music. It conveys a sense of regimented power and control.

    When I first heard the intro of Clarinet Concerto, my testosterone levels plummeted, and my pleasure levels skyrocketed.

    I have always considered it to be bicurious lunchtime music.
