Hockney said in an interview that too many gay men were determined to lead ‘ordinary’ lives by entering into civil partnerships and having children through adoption or surrogate mothers.
“They want to be ordinary – they want to fit in,” said Hockney, “Well I don’t care about that. I don’t care about fitting in. Everywhere is so conservative.”
There’s about as many heterosexual libertines and Bohemians out there as there ever were. Would imagine the same is true of Teh Gayers. It’s just that we know also see the population of gys that are not Bohemians or libertines, as we used not to.
It’s rather amusing really, quite how conservative (very small c conservative there) human society is. Those formerly outcast from polite society are flocking to get married just as soon as they’re allowed to. Rather puts the lie to the idea that there’s something unnatural about marriage (or the pair bond if you like).
