The Observer: Letter To The Editor

Criticising George Michael for his concern for "the poor gay children", Barbara Ellen says: "It's not as if we ever think of straight children – they are just children" ("Crashing into Snappy Snaps doesn't encourage homophobia, George", Comment). That is because the assumption prevails that all children are heading for heterosexuality. The education they get, the socialising facilitated by schools (how many schools would smile on a gay couple attending the school prom as a couple?) and the widespread reluctance to tackle homophobic bullying all reflect this.

Here's Barbara Ellen's stupid piece from last week; George Michael crashing into Snappy Snaps doesn't encourage homophobia
Barbara is one of Fagburn's favourite writers, but what a very silly piece that was.
