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.

Yeah same here. I stamp my feet and scream when I see some lazy slob get my tax to support his low life bum of a family who seem to be regarded better in comparrison to a hard working high earning tax paying homosexuals.

Thanks for aknowledging that gay people are normal. The chips are/were placed by ranting raving heterosexuals, so your very welcome to them, I didnt want them to start with. :)

Im intrested in gay history, seeing as most of it was wiped out by the god brigade in days of old... but it would be nice to read about how gay people lived in better/worse times, who was tortured and their recollection of events, how it affected them and how they live today... the struggle for equality and how it happened, something for the younger generation to read and appreciate... Hell yeah, thats intresting.

But hey if i contributed it would be such a boring read anyway being the normal gay person that i am.

Very apt and leval headed of you,this is very true in so many ways.
Because minority groups in this country have had their confidence boosted so much by the "equality" ....... they want elevated status which puts them above everyone else.

The best way for them to do this is cry "discrimination" and try make everyone tread on eggshells around them


this, i believe, pretty much sums up why there is so much resentment towards any minority group in Britain. its nothing to do with hatred or phobia but more to do with the minority groups wanting a special platform over and above the rest of us

before the shouting starts - bear in mind that the rest of us, if we're refused housing, jobs, social security, whatever, we can't claim the benefit of discrimination, we just have to accept we are not good enough for the job or there are no houses available or whatever

i think that's what annoys so many people

Well apart from being treated equally at work, being allowed to have a recognised lawful relationship, medical treatment, insurance and being allowed to adopt, all these things that are taken for granted by the majority of the population.

We have had to fight for each and every single one.

Whats this preferential treatment you speak of ?

Is that because they are all like fashion designers and stylists and work for vogue with flamboyant bitchiness and all. I spoke to Frank about this matter but Frank just told me he wasn't here to talk to me about gays. This I thought was reasonable because of course Frank is the government's anti-drugs bunny.

a greater proportion of gays take drugs and smoke and drink heavily, and also a much greater proportion have or will get HIV, which cost the tax payer lots. So it probably evens out to be fair.

Statistically 1 in 10 is gay, so doubt that.

The "rest of us" as quoted above does not, of course, include single women, especially pregnant single women!

"Elevated status", can you be more explicit and detail what you mean.

Otherwise that is just gobbly dook rhetoric, without evidence and facts to back that comment.

Was kinda thinking about what ABL said about gays being bigger drinkers etc, costing the tax payer alot.

I dont know of many gay people who end up arrested on a friday saturday night for being drunk and dissorderly or for causing fights on the streets. I dont ever recall seeing 100s of police standing around outside gay night clubs/pubs to break up the trouble. Cant even say in all the years i went clubbing i ever even saw one bit of trouble. I dont hear of stories of drunken domestic violence where police have to be envolved in straight communities. I do recall seeing/hearing all these thing and worse within the straight community.

Im sure having a police presence in the streets costs alot more tax. Thats not incluing the ambulence service and casualty to tend to injurys from drunken brawls.

We then have to look at all the single unworking parents who need tax payers support to raise thier kids.

Gay people costing more of tax payers money, I hardly think so.

Agree with you there - if there were more gays and gay pubs and nightclubs the police could more or less take the night off on a Friday and Saturday night - though there are probably a few "handbags at 12 paces" over a missing eye liner on occasion - hardly equates to moronic drunken brawls after "are you looking at my bird ?" and "you spilt my pint !".

Besides the fact that the city centre would be less threatening - the interior decor would be much more tastefull and tidy
