i was not privy to mark russell's original post suggesting that people
consider possibly repressed homosexual urges among the members of U2 -
made reference to an interview which i am assuming had some content which
prompted him to initiate this thread - mark, if you read this, can you
please advise me where i might hear this interview, or read it??

i would not go so far as to say that i think any of the band members are
repressed homosexuals - i have, however, for a long time, detected an
homoerotic intensity in the relationships between them, particularly edge
and bono - the thought that they may be "repressing" themselves in order
to conform to societal norms, though, had not really occured to me

whoever wrote the post in response to mark asking if he "hears voices"
was rude and out of line - i really can't get over how many homophobic
sentiments are expressed on this list - if you stop to think about this
band and what they stand for, you might realise how out of line those
kinds of attitudes are
