On anti-gayness February 4, 2005Posted by BiB in Uncategorized.
It can be so depressing to read the intelligent press these days. Press which I like, enjoy, respect. And yet I come across, all the more often, endless anti-gay comments. It is so disheartening. I have always liked to think of myself as an ulmost uninterested-in-gay-politics (whatever they are) homosexual, and yet this type of comment pushes one the other way. In the latest edition of www.spectator.co.uk, the article ‘The inexorable march of censorship in New Labour Britain’ by Paul Johnson, was proving an interesting read, even if there was some of the traditional drear about political correctness, but why throw in not being allowed to be anti-gay? I hate the implication that gay folk are some hectoring group constantly crying wolf and looking for something unreasonable. I, and, I expect, most other homosexuals, want nothing more than to be able to get on with our lives unlegislated AGAINST. But, gosh, it’s depressing reading this type of sneer ever more frequently.
