Homosexuality and blue color. What the general?
If person called blue, then, I think, now any will understand what is meant it. In Russia this term began to extend widely with 80 - x years to this day (along with the word “gay“) is quite popular.
And why blue? Not lilac and not claret, for example. Whether connects something in general this color with same-sex love? Let`s try to understand.
There is a wish to notice that abroad the term “blue“ in relation to gays especially is not applied. However there is various coincidence. For example, there are versions that once the homosexual districts of Paris were called blue.
On the Australian slang the word “blue“ (letters. blue, blue ) means “not such as all“, and on English - American - “obscene“, “dissolute“. Though it is possible that similar values of expression appeared just from Russian, and not vice versa.
It is known that in English there are turns of speech with the word “blue“ having quite peaceful character (for example, “to be in the blue“ - to long, mourn). And the musical blues direction which arose in America - well not dissolute (and does not smell of homosexuality at all).
Blue color - color of the sky. It symbolizes an inaccessibility and divinity (expression “dreamboat“, seemingly, went from here). It is interesting that in one of the works Platon wrote about the goddess Aphrodite Urania (heavenly) as about the patroness of same-sex sublime (heavenly) love. Apparently, in ancient times homosexuality was not considered as special defect. Today hardly anyone - that will begin to idolize same-sex love.
Blue color - color of the sea, color of our planet. It symbolizes the world, boundless space. It is color of tranquility, wisdom, independence … And here homosexuality?
However if to dig more deeply, in our organism it is possible to track interesting communication. It is known that each human organ bears in itself a certain program of perception of life (I will not go deep into details). The program of homosexuality is concealed in kidneys. It is also known that each body radiates certain waves of own frequency. These waves can be perceived and visually, that is to see their color. And so, “color“ of kidneys - blue.
However, the probability has not enough that “color“ of the Russian gays is connected with this coincidence. It is much easier to assume that homosexuals just were associated with pigeons. “Bred how pigeons …“, “are pardoned how pigeons …“, etc.
Or perhaps blue color at all not and? Perhaps this word not Russian?
“Girl - boy“ - is literally translated from English as the boy - the girl . We read as “ gyol - fight “. In Russian instead of a hyphen the connecting vowel “about“ is often used or “at“ (and sounding smoothes out). Here also we receive “gyoloby“ - blue. The boy - the girl, quite associated with the gay (behavior, appearance). Or the semi-boy, that is a floor - fight , or “callboy“ (“ the boy on a call “in English - the American slang). Too it is conformable with “blue“, isn`t that so?
Why in Russia gays began to call “blue“, unambiguously it is difficult to answer. There are only many versions. Nevertheless, this color became very ambiguous and is often perceived in the wrong context. And it is quite probable that the general between homosexuality and blue color - actually only the first two letters.
