Britain: Worse Than Nazi Germany - Official

Many lesbian, gay and bisexual people continue to live in fear of prejudice, despite the significant progress in recent years to improve equality.

Gay in Britain, a report by the campaign group Stonewall, suggests that large numbers of Britain's 3.7 million* gay people fear they will be discriminated against if they stand for political office, seek to foster a child or look to become a magistrate.

Three in five of those questioned in the YouGov poll of just over 2,000 gay people said they expected their child would be bullied in primary school if it were known they had gay parents; more than four in five expected the same if they had a child in secondary school. Seven in 10 people expected to face barriers because of their sexual orientation if they applied to become a school governor...

Its survey found more than six in 10 gay and bisexual men and four in 10 lesbians and bisexual women expect to experience homophobia if they take part in a team sport and are open about their sexuality. And almost half think that television's portrayal of lesbian, gay and bisexual people is unrealistic.

I know I've said this before, but I really can't say it enough - and heaven forfend I sound like a monumental loon with no idea how the world works - but this shows once again that Britain today is to homophobia what Nazi Germany was to antisemitism.
This is just one train stop away from Auschwitz, dudes.
This is exactly what apartheid South Africa was like.
And I, for one, refuse to be hysterical and exagerate.
Good day, sir.

* In-no-way is this figure made-up! See also the thing about how much The Gays contribute to the economy. LOLZ etc...

Update: The Stage on The Gays on The Tellybox. 

Oh and finally... here's a PDF of the Stonewall survey.
