OK – I realise that I am going to get pilloried for this article and branded as an homophobic, lezza hating, sexually intolerant, prejudiced, queer bashing twat but frankly I don’t give a fuck…
…because anyone who does this is just not capable of understanding what I am trying to say.
Yesterday, the Independent on Sunday published it’s pink list for 2011. This is described as “Our annual celebration of the gay and lesbian community”
Well, that’s all very well – but why exactly are we celebrating what is, in effective, sexual deviation? Now don’t get me wrong; I’m not queer bashing when I say this. It’s just that those of us who are normally sexually oriented – by which I mean those of us who prefer our sex in the way that is practiced by the overwhelming majority of men and women on the planet – simply don’t understand why it is so wonderful to be different that we need to make a big thing out of it and hold it out as something wonderous?
Here’s a first rate comment sent to me by GeorgeSilver :
I seem to have lost my cool this morning after seeing The Independent on Sunday Pink List 2011. I felt an unbearable need to rant in their comments : How about a list for the ‘unsung heroes’ the middle class, middle age, English white male.
You know the guy that pays most of the taxes. Doesn’t mug pensioners. Doesn’t want hand-outs. Doesn’t break the law. Doesn’t stand on the street corner selling drugs. Brings up a family in responsible manner. Doesn’t have massive credit card debt and lives within his means. Doesn’t have ‘parades’ that have to be policed.
You know. The guy that lives with a normal woman and maybe a couple of kids. Goes out to work everyday and is expected to tolerate and hand-out money to all the weird groups who never seem to be able to earn their own money. The guy you can count on when there is a problem………and usually doesn’t complain until now.
I understand where he’s coming from with this. We make so much fuss about being sexually different, but why? I’m quite happy for you to live your life any way you want as long as you extend the same courtesy to me and as long as you don’t force me to live the same way you do. We live in sexually liberated times and that’s as it should be.
But why this compulsion to ram it down our throats?…
Mrs D. and I just went throught the list and she would like to know how she gets a job as an ‘Activist’ and how much it pays. She thinks she could fit it into her busy life and that it might suit her quite well. Any offers?…
Have I been here before?
