Elephant Man and TOK are among the most egregious of the serial offenders. I'm glad the Canadians and Germans are restricting their music. More nations need to catch on.

That's right. Hit them where it hurts. In their wallets!

Only now are reggae artists starting to think twice about making this awful, hateful music. This is the right approach. Keep pressuring the distribution channels, manufacturers and nations that are sympathetic to the cause.

This is good news, and this is coming from someone who is Jamaican and can identify with the insane anti-gay hatred on the island.

Absolutely. Long as they're invited and given work, they're not going to reconsider. Let them sit at home and they'll realize they're not indispensable nor untouchable.

Bravo for Germany.

Its beginning to seem strange that certain artists have this bug up their 'bum' about us innocent gay folk who want nothing more than to live our lifes like everyone else. Why is that? Even when its becoming more and more clear that spreading hate will no longer be tolerated, still, they can't pen a song without burning a homosexual.

Interesting. I hope the next time one of these guys is interviewed someone broaches that subject.

Dumb rhetoric aside, it bothers me that anyone has control over whether or not music can be available. It can end up cutting both ways, and more often than not, usually does. What if a Christian Democratic party comes into power? Will gay artists then be moved against, while reactionary nonsense like these artists be let through?
