Scissor Sister Blasts 'Right-Wing Republican' Gay Men

Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears has blasted other gay men for conforming to such a degree - they're beginning to resemble "right-wing Republicans".

The COMFORTABLY NUMB singer is shocked at how homosexual males have negated their own personality to fit into "straight culture" - a revelation made apparent to him at an OUT! magazine party in New York in November (04) where he was reminded of how corporate "urban gay professionals" have become.

Shears says, "The event reminded me of how bored with the gays I've become.

"I'm speaking in very general terms here, but you get a room full of urban gay professionals together in America in 2004 and you won't be able to tell the difference between them and a bunch of right-wing Republicans.

"A lot of the gay mainstream is so desperate to assimilate into straight culture that they've turned into their own high school principals, except with a spoonful of ketamine up their nose on the weekends.

"The wonderful thing about the UK is that the sexuality thing kind of went out the window after the record came out."
