Melissa Etheridge The Nor

Melissa Etheridge The Normal Heart
In an interview with PopEater, singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge spoke openly about gay stereotypes, including the absurdity of being called "not gay enough." Says Etheridge, "I've had the gay community say, 'Why don't you write a song saying her? Your lyrics are non-gender.' They're never happy. And the straight folks, they just assume the lyrics are about a woman, and they assume that if they go to a concert it's going to be all gay people. There are stereotypes we all have. But there's no us and them. Good God, we're all the same."
