They were pretty good songs & so was, In The Navy. Unfortunately they were considered gay songs & The Village People were considered a gay band when I was in skewl.

Well multiple members of the band were indeed gay, and yes it is well-known that there are undertones of that in the song, but why is that unfortunate and does that somehow make them not good now, if so why?

I was called gay for liking them. I still like them anyways.

That's like calling someone black for liking songs by black people. Like songs by gay people doesn't make you anymore than like songs by black people makes you black.

That's actually a thing as well but it's mostly associated with rap.

Ah alright. It does suck not only that people called you gay for liking them but also saw gay as a valid insult. It is a good thing that society seems to be moving past all that now. I personally think you should always just like what you like, but it does suck when people try to use what you like to bully you.

The YMCA was a place where gay men hooked up back then.

It's gay. I like that.

I tend to like 'gay songs' but there aren't many which are specifically gay like that. Most are just camp straight songs by women (like Britney) or mixed bands (like ABBA). I wish there were more gay songs out there and especially songs which were just love songs or especially break up songs which happen to be same sex.

I like fun songs. Mum took over the car stereo yesterday and most of the songs she chose were depressing.

They are fun songs to dance to. I agree, a lot of today's music is very depressing.
