Day 2366 - The guiding and chiding of a wingless, genderless Dawn

An hour after I posted my blog entry of yesterday, Morrissey took to the comment section of FTM, in the guise of Dawn Mist, and left this comment:


I do not wish to give you a coincidence but I since there appears to be nobody paying attention to anything... 

Interview for the Sunday Times 26/11/17 

"Just like veganism, he insists, being sexually fluid and gender fluid is now much more accepted. "It's extraordinary. People seem to be very relaxed by it." But when Morrissey announced his humasexuality in 2013, he was a lonely voice. "Yes, I was. I spearheaded the movement. I know no other way, so nothing has changed for me, but the rest of the world leaps on. I am pleased because I want people to be happy. There is an expiration date on our lives on this planet. You have to be yourself and hopefully get some happiness from it. It seems everybody, in every respect of their lives, is coming out of their cupboard saying this is the person I'd like to be. I want to wear these clothes, not those that have been imposed on me. As long as nobody's harmed, I think it's good." 

True Morrissey Blog Post - 'Let Your Juvenile Influences Sway" 14/12/16 

"I have always been influenced by feminism, please dig around the archives and you will find enough evidence of this. I know List of the Lost may point towards me having a rather negative view of women but you can blame Gail Shea for that. My view of gender is thus, no matter what genitals you were lucky or unlucky to have when you were born, they do not define your gender. Your gender is your mind and your gender is whatever you decide to construct it as. A boy has a feminine side and a girl has a masculine side, if they decide to show these opposite sides of their given gender it does not make them strange. It makes them unique. 

It is time to collapse down into the ground the rigid constructs around gender. The body is fragmented. The body is fractured. The body is not natural. There is no natural body. The only natural thing is the mind, not the body, not the limbs. Gender is not something you are, it's something you do, an act, a dress code, a thought pattern. It is not ascribed at birth. Gender is the stylisation of the body. It is akin to suicide in that it is a person taking control of their own destiny and saying "I will not play the role given to me, I am free to be whatever and whoever I choose". The acting of the genders tears down traditional ideas of masculinity and femininity. It tears down, and not before time, the obsolete sexualities. No longer can people be defined by one sexuality or one gender. Indeed both of these things are fluid. 


People must free themselves from the modern idea of gender. Emancipate your body from itself. Free your mind from what you think you knew. Fly with genderless wings, for as you know angels are genderless. Do the Gods really think about gender? Shop wherever you please, release yourself in whatever cubicle you feel you should. Marry, if you're so inclined, in whatever outfit you wish. Gender is a performance." 


So the only question that remains is why do I even bother? 

I mean.. Why does OM even bother?

Not paying attention, indeed! Morrissey has this great ability to guide and chide all at the same time. It didn't occur to me for one minute that the only other time Morrissey had discussed gender fluidity prior to the Sunday Times interview was on that blog post of last December - which incidentally I re-posted on Day 2019 of FTM.

Surely there must be other interviews where Morrissey has discussed the issue of gender fluidity? - Perhaps not!
Back in the day Morrissey certainly used to bang on about a fourth gender, but I guess the first time he really brought up the subject of gender fluidity was in 2013, when he announced that he was, "humasexual". That may well have been the start of Moz spearheading the movement, but that 2013 statement certainly didn't go into much detail - I guess people have just worked it out for themselves. I shall add this gender fluid 'coincidence' to our list.

A NAIL-VARNISHED, WINGLESS, GENDERLESS NEW DAWN

I replied to Dawn's comment by pointing out that it was 8:03 am in Detroit (which I presume is the current location), and asked genderless Dawn if he couldn't sleep. I got the reply, "Fuck off you ungrateful rum-cunt", which made my day. I think it is safe to say that despite all the recent negative press, Mozzer remains in good spirits.

And well might old Mozzer be in good spirits, for today Low In High School entered the US Billboard Chart at an amazing Number 20. It is truly an incredible achievement, and the whole band plus Joe Chiccarelli should be immensely proud. Korda Marshall should also take a bow. To hell with accusations of sycophantisism, Low In High School is a truly great album.

I have nothing else of note to add today, other than to mention that Chrissy Iley has now put the whole of her interview with Morrissey on her own personal website. It comes across as far warmer than Eleanor Mills's edited down version that appeared in the Sunday Times magazine - no surprises there.

And finally, close-up Youtube footage has appeared of Morrissey saying, "make it happen" in St Louis (as reported on Day 2362 of FTM). As Morrissey says the words, he makes a very overstated  'O' sign, which is further proof that this was a clear instruction for Our Heather to get her blue rose to him. A missed opportunity, but never mind, we still have New York.



There are once again two charts this week, with the first one being the ten most viewed Morrissey song clips posted on Youtube from the past seven days, and the second one the Official(ish) Wrong Arms Chart.

  2. oh congrats to Moz and the boys on reaching number one in the billboard vinyl album chart

  3. Many congrats are in order - bravo to Moz and everyone connected with LIHS. As for me, I'll be kicking myself forevermore - can't believe I completely missed the O sign but I was on the wrong side of the venue for a good view. Speaking of signs, I'm surprised that Trumpshifters with the V sign didn't place higher on the chart, but thanks for another great chart - always nice to see some BRS nods on there.

    1. I'll be honest, I'd compiled the chart with Trumpshifters from Denver, having completely forgotten about the 'V' and hand in the shirt at St Louis. I switched it over after the chart rundown in The Arms. Hang the DJ.

  4. Hi Ratty, perfect chart once again, and, once again, I can't be more proud about Morrissey! The interview, the new songs, the tour everything is going fine and whoever still can't understand the greatness of Morrissey is condamned to live a sad life, we try to help them, but they still don't believe us... Ciao!❤️😉
