Norman Lamb MP: Addresses The Burning Issues Of The Day

...Should they should have gay characters in Peppa Pig, or is there a limit?

If you impose arbitrary limits, you’re saying that actually at heart, it’s not equatable. It should absolutely not be out of bounds, which it appears to be at the moment.

It is inconsistent with the philosophy that has led to the legislation. That’s the principle point. So, we have to be clear and consistent.

If we’re not, it still tells that teenager, who is struggling to come to terms with her sexuality, that there is something not quite normal about how they feel. And that puts unfair strain on that individual which we should not be prepared to tolerate.

Actual question and answer with the Lib Dem leadership candidate in a Pink News interview.

He sounds like a light-hearted and fun kinda guy, doesn't he?

PS Mail Online readers were somewhat vexed by this gay piggies and the kiddies conundrum.

Update: Thursday's Metro - I think the 'Which kids' TV characters are gay?' thing might be getting a bit old now...
