I appreciate that, but your support was awkward and terrifying.

I think Richard herring pretty much summed up my thoughts on it:

Fun fact: Michael Clarke Duncan (who was a huge White Sox fan, IIRC) was at Disco Demolition Night. He slid into home plate, I think.

Because the Bee Gees were a bunch of gay black men...

No, because most of the people who loved and listened to disco were black people and were also gay people. That's why.

Re: Bieber hopes Anne Frank would have been a fan

^ And we care about this...why, exactly?

To express disdain or even hatred for a kind of music is not relevant to that music's fan base. Is everyone who hates rap a racist? Are all those who say "Depeche Mode sucks" homophobes? Do people who hate country music hate Southerners? No, of course not. Same story here.

Really? I think that this article will enlighten you, as well as this quote from it:

The Anti-disco movement represented an unholy alliance of funkateers and feminists, progressives and puritans, rockers and reactionaries. None the less, the attacks on disco gave respectable voice to the ugliest kinds of unacknowledged racism, sexism and homophobia.

^ Pack your bags, we're going on a guilt trip!

Looks like we all better keep our mouths shut regarding music we hate, then.

Re: Bieber hopes Anne Frank would have been a fan

I have no idea what's going on, anymore. Are we discussing gay, Disco racists?

Guys, come on, you need to get along. Think of what you have in common, Bieber wants you all to be his fan.

Re: Bieber hopes Anne Frank would have been a fan

Apparently I was a racist and a homophobe when I was 9, because I wanted to smash into a wall due to the fact that the damn "We Are Family" would not shut the fuck up. And I had no idea who even sang the song, I just hated it so much I wanted to puree the radio.
