Oh, I like this thread, but have to admit I'm not familar with Tumblr - although I'm sure I've come across it by accident when browsing for pics etc but I've never seen any of these.

Just wanted to pick up on this pic posted a couple of pages back...



How anyone can say Yoko was/is ugly is beyond me. I mean look at her... not a scrap of make-up, no hair from a bottle etc, She looks extremely beautiful here.... and she was never more beautiful than when she looked at John, you could feel all that she felt for him. She still looks bloody good, and natural, and still shines that special playful, child-like quality I always saw in her.

LL, I agree with all you said! I agree that Yoko had a very definite beauty and allure, and we all know John thought so!!

Yes, that's a gorgeous photo of Yoko. We've discussed it here before, but we've come to the conclusion that racism had a big part of it. Since you're a Briton, maybe you could shed light on the issue, because John always said that the two of them faced such overwhelming negativity in the UK. Do you think it may have been because Yoko was Japanese, or just because the British were/are so protective of the boys that they were upset at someone "breaking them up" or do you think it was something else or a combination of things?

Maia...

I'd say without a doubt rascism reared it's ugly head and played a huge part in the anti-Yoko mantra at that time, and probably still does with some mature fans whose feelings became so ingrained there's just no changing them. I'd also say the further north in Britain and out of Cities you ventured at that time those views would have been immensely stronger in general, they really weren't as used to seeing mixed race couples at all. My ex partner's brother despised Yoko, always harped on about how Cyn was so lovely and sweet and blah, blah... how Yoko single-handedly caused the rift blah, blah. There's just no point even trying to challenge him anymore - I have tried, and failed.

Of course there were people who just didn't want the split, wanted the group to go on forever and hated that John seemingly abandoned them and headed for NYC, some got over it, moved on, began to understand and didn't blame or hate Yoko. Some because of their love of John, some because they could just see how ridicuous all that hate was.

So, a mixture of reasons, but rascism blatently did play a part. Fact.

On a positive, It's good to see so many new fans 'getting' it all, getting that there were so many problems within the group before Yoko that a split was inevitable. Maybe one day the ridculousness will die out for good. I'm sure there will be people looking back at Cyn and Yoko and comparing, but hopefully that ugly R word won't come into any preference... and as an added bonus, maybe one day in the distant future the "Yoko split up The Beatles" mantra will be put to bed too... or maybe I'm living on planet Nutopia, but I can dream....

Here's more of this type of stuff:



*sigh* No disrespect to our Snoopy, but I just HATE this analysis. It's so black and white. So completely...wrong.

Olivia Harrison said that when George died, it was peaceful and he was surrounded by his loved ones. They got to say so much more than just goodbye. But John was stolen from this world in a cruel and violent way that made no sense. He bled to death in front of his wife, while his little boy waited for him to come home and his elder son was planning on visiting him shortly. Where is the humanity in any of that? I don't care if it's a random Joe...that is not a peaceful way to die. And for a man who gave this world so much and more, the heartbreak is immeasurable.

I've really always felt this. I never saw this couple as anything less than one of the greatest romances in history.

Probably one of the most reblogged and liked confession. I adore this one:

How about we let it go now? It's been quite a long time and John isn't here and has been gone for over 30 years. I believe Cynthia has moved on, and Julian...well, he'll always be a little troubled but I have shared my own thoughts on that here so you all know where I'm at with this...sort of over the Cynthia Lennon pity party to be honest.

I'm sorry, but why are there so many confessions talking about John's 'mistakes?' Do people really think the other Beatles never made any?

Even in his early days with Yoko I don't think people poured such hateful feelings on him... but that;s what you get with a guy like John. He inspires passionate responses.

I will never stop standing up to The Modern Generation in their quest to demoralize John and pick apart his life. I know the great man sang, "After all is said and done/you can't go pleasing everyone" but that doesn't mean I'm going to take that crap lying down.
