Pink News: A New Low


So it's come to this...


Sorry, but the stupidity level on this story had threatened to engulf my neck.

Fagburn is particularly fond of this bit - mainly as it contains a two-word quote from The Fall...

The gay public realm has been hijacked by new puritans – bullies, censors, bores.

Bedwetting pearl-clutching fools, desperate to take offence at anything and everything.

I thank you.

  1. Oh you are so terrifically brave condemning those people who get upset about homophobia working in your gay friendly job and no doubt living in your gay friendly neighbourhood with all your gay friends. I guess your next door neighbour hasn't knocked on your door and for no reason announced that he is sick of your gay lifestyle and punched you in face. I'm still laughing about that one.

  2. I think you answered your own question in the article when you said there's far worse things in the world to worry about.
    The thing is, moaning about this crap is easy for people: click an e-petition, tweet their faux-outrage, etc. Attending to anything that genuinely requires change needs actual effort.

    I don't know what is more pathetic: the depressing amount of times in the comments section that the Smugtwitian "imagine if they said that about black people" Defence was used or the above conflation of a religious nutter on TV simply airing his views and an actual violent homophobic attack,

    You do have a gift for pissing off morons, Fagburn.

  3. I am surprised to see you writing four paragraphs abusing gay people who challenge homophobia, BK. Surely someone as self important as you has better things to do?

    Challenging Neanderthal opinions from religious bigots seems more constructive than condemning those who do so, but as a pathetic moron, I am clearly not able to comprehend the intellectual reasoning of a smug, pompous, complacent hypocrite like you.
