I know he's been in the closet his entire life, but now would be the perfect time to finally 'come out'. Firstly, it would win him some oppression brownie points from the woke identity politics brigade who have deserted him in recent years (maybe not as much as being Muslim or transgender, but it's got to count for something), and secondly, Philip Schofield is on the market and looking for man on man action. Win, win.
You're missing the point. Calling yourself 'gay' is boring. It's actually the safer option for society to limit you and stick you in a pigeon-box marked 'gay'. Gay people can now get married ffs. Morrissey clearly wants to exist in that grey area that Oscar Wilde thrived in - until he was convicted and then his artistic life was over. Is he or isn't he? That's the realm of the artist - the delicious realm of mystery and temptation and danger. 'Dorian Gray' works so well as a novel because the sins that Dorian gets up to are almost all left unsaid and hinted at only. Call yourself 'gay' and all the danger is gone. The door gets shut. It would kill Morrissey's creativity.
He has never been in.
Getting lawyers to try to retrieve pre fame letters and making up terms like humosexual and refusing to walk through Soho in case anyone saw him, always getting Damon to walk behind is not being out. Most people who are out wouldn't give two shits about being seen or what people might know or think they know. He couldn't be any further in Nania if he tried.
He says that female genitalia does not like him, there is nothing wrong with saying that.
He’s been my one constant in life ..and yes we’ve all been in situations that we haven’t been to suited with from time to time...I don’t think I would ever like to meet him or even be a friend to be honest I think I enjoy the relationship I have now, I buy the records and concert ticketsIt would be nice to think Morrissey was talking about a newly discoveted sex life in those lines, wouldn't it, Carlisle, but it was something much more mundane, ie the intrusion of the media. That's what I love about Morrissey though. One size fits all. Whatever situation you find yourself in.
Then why make it?
