    Don't think Bowie was concerned one way or another. Was just living his life.

    My first experiences with "gays", after moving to Cambridge in 1975 were unpleasant. It did not surprise me that so many got their asses kicked because they tended to take the offensive, were aggressively "in your face". Was ALWAYS about THEM. Everyone else was at fault who did not agree with their causes.

    Exactly! I found the same when I moved to SF in '78. Neither Bowie nor anyone else "allowed" me to be gay. My own personal opinion is that someone named God had a hand in that.

    Bowie was different before Apple's Think Different.

    For Different to be mainstream contributed to the freeing of others to be different.

    Just by living his life, others could be experimental, creative, talented, accepted, freed.

    Yes, claiming civil rights should always warrants a good beating. It's like I always said, Martin Luther King Jr. deserved that bullet in his head for being so annoying. Who did he think he was, wanting same rights for everyone?
