"I felt like the school was discriminating for sexual orientation and I felt it was wrong. It's so stupid because there's nothing sexual in the song. There aren't even any cuss words."

--Junior Casey Hight of Wasilla High School, who contacted an LGBT group when her principal banned "Bohemian Rhapsody" because it was written by a gay man

Okay, so, as a professional musician, I was under the impression that Mercury was bisexual. After all, he was rather fond of them "fat bottom girls."

I'm pretty sure that he was bi, as well...

Banned because it was written by a gay man? I guess they have to ban the 1812 Overture also.
