Jason you should have quoted this! Now this is a ridiculous statement.
"War, I thought, was the most negative aspect of male heterosexuality. If more men were homosexual, there would be no wars, because homosexual men would never kill other men, whereas heterosexual men love killing other men. They even get medals for it. Women don’t go to war to kill other women. Wars and armies and nuclear weapons are essentially heterosexual hobbies."
I've said it before -- I respect the guy, but he's a fucking idiot. Jeffrey Dahmer anyone? I'm sorry, I know he released some great albums, but this is ridiculous. If anyone else said this we'd be calling them trolls, morons, etc.

I still don't know how I feel about Morrissey, sometimes I love what he has to say, other times he just seems like a grumpy (often to the point of whiny) bastard.
The homosexuality/war bit was definitely interesting. Haha. I do believe war to be an ugly facet of humanity... And I wouldn't disagree that a lot of it is brought on by male aggression, but to say no homosexual would kill another man is just pretty presumptuous, and ultimately untrue.
Q: If you could tell your teenage self one thing, what would it be?
A: I am still my teenage self. If you think that we all step through a door marked Adult, or that we sign a Grown-Up Document, you’re quite wrong. We remain as we always were, and that, alas, is one of life’s many nasty tricks.
Since we're already on the topic of Morrissey, check out his new response to the whole Jimmy Kimmel/Duck Dynasty thing...
I was disappointed with last nightís Jimmy Kimmel Show wherein our smiling host managed to ridicule depression (70% of Americans suffer from depression according to the National Institute of Mental Health). He then found time to ridicule healthy eating (the obesity epidemic in the U.S. costs $147 billion per year in medical expenditure), and he also ridiculed the notion that animals should be entitled to the possession of their own lives. Furthermore, he found time to jokingly promote gun-ownership - hugely amusing for the parents at Sandy Hook, no doubt. He also promoted his special guests Duck Dynasty Ė who kill beings for fun. None of the above issues are, of course, as important as Jimmy Kimmel himself, who has finally revealed his show to have an overwhelming loss of meaning. Tune in and relive the intellectual fog of the 1950s.
