A radio presenter was musing on sexual ambiguity in the movies recently.

John Wayne never went out without a pair of chaps.

Was Roy Rogers a statement?

How about Butch Cassidy?

And Jesse James?

And all those old cowpokes?

What was a Saddle Horn then?

And who had a Little Big Horn?

I think that Bareback Mountain has just dragged those cowboys out of the closet.

*snort snort* *snigger!* *spray coffee through the nose!!!!* Funniest thread I've read in a long time, boys ( I notice you are all "boys").

Keep it coming for heaven's sake, I haven't heard so many hilariously witty replies since I was in Year 8. Come to think of it, it was probably about the same subject, but that was in 1965. Are any of you ever going to grow up? :bored:

What a silly queschun, Binos!

Of course not ! :E

The Guardian - February 16, 2006
Willie Nelson sings in voice of gay cowboy

First it was Wyoming, with Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain, now gay cowboy fever has spread to Texas.

"There's many a strange impulse out on the plains of west Texas," sings country legend Willie Nelson in a song released on Valentine's Day on the internet music store, iTunes. "There's many a young boy who feels things he can't comprehend."

Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly (Fond of Each Other), is a story of forbidden love in small town Texas, written 25 years ago by the improbably named Ned Sublette. "Now a small town don't like it when somebody falls between sexes," runs the first verse, "No, a small town don't like it when a cowboy has feelings for men."

The chorus, which Nelson sings accompanied by acoustic guitar and accordion, chimes with the concerns of Lee's Oscar-nominated film for which he contributed a song to the soundtrack.

"Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other/ What did you think them saddles and boots was about?/There's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels for his brother/Inside every cowboy there's a lady that'd love to slip out."

Nelson, most famous for songs such as Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys, said that he felt the time was right for the song to be released. While it was written in 1981, the version released this week was recorded last year. "The song's been in the closet for 20 years," he said. "The timing's right for it to come out. I'm just opening the door."

Kim Buie, a vice-president at Nelson's Lost Highway records, told the Dallas Morning News: "Being gay is nothing new ... Society puts its own standards on it, but that song makes it OK."

Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly (Fond of Each Other)

There's many a strange impulse out on the plains of West Texas;
There's many a young boy who feels things he don't comprehend.
Well small towns don't like it when somebody falls between sexes,
No, small towns don't like it when a cowboy has feelings for men.

Well I believe in my soul that inside every man there's a feminine,
And inside every lady there's a deep manly voice loud and clear.
Well, a cowboy may brag about things that he does with his women,
But the ones who brag loudest are the ones that are most likely queer.

Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other
What did you think those saddles and boots was about?
There's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels towards his brother,
Inside every cowboy there's a lady who'd love to slip out.

Ten men for each woman was the rule way back when on the prairie,
And somehow those cowboys must have kept themselves warm late at night.
Cowboys are famous for getting riled up about fairies,
But I'll tell you the reason a big strong man gets so uptight:
Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other
That's why they wear leather, and Levi's and belts buckled tight.

There's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels towards his brother;
There's many a cowboy who's more like a lady at night.
Well there's always somebody who says what the others just whisper,
And mostly that someone's the first one to get shot down dead:
When you talk to a cowboy don't treat him like he was a sister
Don't mess with the lady that's sleepin' in each cowboy's head.

Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other
Even though they take speed and drive pickups and shoot their big guns;
There's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels towards his brother;
There's many a cowboy who keeps quiet about things he's done.

Are you aware that in the Top End media it was reported that Brokeback Mountain was banned in Rocky & Townsville because, as Bob Katter Jr was quoted as saying, "we don't have poofta cowboys in QLD"! :}

16th Feb 2006, 13:09
Clarrie, I'd like to say I wouldn't be at all surprised, but like all feelgood southern slurs about the top end, it proves to have no basis in reality.

A simple visit to www.greaterunion.com.au should convince even Bob Katter that BM is playing five sessions a day in Darwin, Townsville, Rocky and my own humble piece of earth. Never let the facts get in the way of a cliche, though. ;)

16th Feb 2006, 13:53
It will never play against "Brrlue Eyes Cryin' inna Renn".

Probably not even against "The Old Homoing Waltz".
