tyke boy. Theres me thinking you had a social belief.

One really needs to read between the lines of posters!
If you look at the posting history as well as resurrecting/hijacking this thread the poster has attempted 3 times to start other threads one presumably on the Bradford board. However non are tagged with a location so other than through the posting history and via the "England" page they aren't visible which is possibly why the mods have been a little less careful about removing the thinly disguised email address. The domain of the email address is this website www.wyjs.org.uk/inde... which appears to be funded by the 5 West Yorkshire councils. So bloominluck if you pay council tax in West Yorks or any other tax in the UK then you are paying for this

Dear oh! Dear. Now what are you doing about helping others,you pay tax! Big Deal so does everyone so how about other than whinging!You do something. BTW name one child you know in Leeds who is living in poverty?

Again what are you doing about it? Nowt! Just whinging, as its someone else problem, thats why I pay my taxes.

SAD!

No it upsets me that my tax is being used to fund some self indulgent looser, who wants to write about him/her self, when there are children in Leeds in poverty in the 21st Century.

It's not a novelty or even remotely interesting to the vast majority of people. Just look at the amount of respondees - sorry to say this, but you're as normal as the rest apart from the large chip on the odd shoulder. Grow up.

Alex. The Elephant boy is just that, Thinks he knows it all but knows nowt!

A fustrated bi kid! suffering with rejection. Which could be due to his attitude. Sad really!

Quoted from this message



Oh grow up. I make a reasoned factual comment regarding taxes, and you just cant hack it. Rather than attempting to refute it, you lash out in a childish personal outburst, and ironically call *me* a kid.

I'll repeat it. Gays may perhaps pay more in taxes, but they also use more too. HIV treatment costs millions. And when 1 in 10 gays in cities have hiv, you are talking a significant amount of money, that negates the extra taxes gays as a community may earn. Add to this the huge spending on social workers, antidepressents, and NHS treatment from a community that has the highest proportion of smokers and drug users, and the costs all add up.

And just to add to that, my point is, as I said before, that while gay people as a community may perhaps pay a little more in taxes, this is negated by perhaps greater consumption, so it even outs. If this is true, what does this mean? It means gay people pay and consume taxes just like everyone else, and so are equally entitled to their share.

You dont see the gay community up in arms moanings about how "their hard earned taxes" go on the welfare and support of kids, the whole child education system, or single mums. If gay people moaned everytime taxes were spent on something exclusively not for them, they'd be moaning continuously.

If someone doesnt like this LGB History commision thing whatever it is, dont participate in it. simple.

And ignore everything else above.

1 in 10 is gay, so your argument is completely flawed. But its more likely 2 or more in 10 becuase thats only based on people on the visable scene, going on that basis its a flawed survey as its not including the entire gay population just a tiny % of it.

Its like doing a survey in a brothell and saying most are prostitutes.

In comparrison:
More straight people have HIV
More straight people smoke
More straight people take drugs
More straight people drink

There are more of ya, so how can the gay community cost more tax than the straight community ?

Pretty stupid statement to make to be honest!

Oh! The Elephant boy has a temper.

Uk Smokers for a start: They pay in taxes 7,000,000,000 great english pounds. For their habit. On my calculations, it would appear they are paying for their habit!

Now has you have a fear of HIV infection and the cost. over 80% of HIV infection is in the world wide hetrosexual community. ( Just to add, men go with men...just to keep you up!)

Taking your comment from a local point of view, it would appear that you have some form of homophobic attitude. That people in the UK who are gay and have HIV, are a burden on the community purse.

To enlighten you, a person who requires medical treatment and support will never be denied. A patient is a person a human being. No price is ever put on the needs of the patient, the patient always comes first.

Your posting is so shallow to the respect of the well being of human life, I can only say you must live a very sad life, when monetry costs are more important than the life of a person.

You are either taking a neoconservative attitude, or that you have an issue that you yourself as not dealt with.

ABL you are so intense of the subject of Gay people. Yet why is there violence towards Asian women.

You blogged your name as Asian boy. Why are Asian women so controlled, and if they don't, they are murdered!

Two recent cases, one in the UK and one in Canada.

Because these women did not conform to the dictates of their family, they were killed.

Asian Boy. I do not bring this up as a challenge to you, but to think what you say, when it comes to the value of life.

Life and love in any form is beautiful.

Quoted from this message



The '1 in 10 gay men are HIV' figure.. comes from the terrence higgins trust. If you are talking gay men on the gay scene in the big cities, it rises to a staggering 1 in 6 in London, manchester and brighton.

I appreciate your point that such data analysis doesnt take into account all those gay people who are not out. *BUT* nor does your presumption that gay people are higher earners take this into account either.

There are more of ya, so how can the gay community cost more tax than the straight community ?

Quoted from this message



Ey? Are you for real? lol Do you understand what "proportionately" means?

Who has said the gay community costs more? I have simply refuted your wild unsubstantiated claim that gays pay more than their fair share of taxes. The reality is they pay they same, espeically when you factor in the HIV burdeon.

If you want to make the claim that gays disproportionatley pay more than their fair share in taxes (because they are arguabley high earners), than you have to prepare to be challenged. You are suggesting that anyone who challenges you is homophobic.

No! Dislikes come from a lack of social awareness. That there are other people out there, that one is not aware of.

That there are people that are a different being than oneself, which takes form in many ways.

Insulated and controlled upbringing, can dictate the attitude, one can carry into adult life.

ABL. What is the point you are trying to make?

So far from your postings, you appear to be saying that Homosexuls are costing you money.

Do Try and clarify, as our readers are becoming confused, at the point you are trying to make!

Asianboyleeds. Are you GAY?

Asianboyleeds. What is your problem towards Gays?

Asianboyleeds. Why are you so interested Gays?

Asianboyleeds. Are you HIV positive?

The questions are to clarify why you have an anti towards gay people.

Your personal life is your own, you are invisible.

So be honest and socially aware!

Quoted from this message



In the UK, every year there are more cases of homosexually contracted HIV than there are heterosexual, despite gays making up less than 1 tenth the population.
