mauvepink BS: Equality State? NOT (27) RE: BS: Equality State? NOT 21 Feb 11


I think "Brokeback Mountain" put some of the 'he-man cowboys' myth to bed in honesty. It shocked quite a few people's thinking.

In fairness though it's not just men who can be so oversensitive about sexuality of others. Sadly I have met some women in my life who can be terribly bigoted and worse than any man. It always seems worse from a woman somehow because, generally, women tend not to be so homophobic so it is a bigger surprise.

Many men have no trouble with it at all. People secure in their own sexuality seldom give others a hard time about it.

It seems a great shame Sorcha if this gets through. Do you think the people that have brought it in have done to try and gain them votes or do they genuinely believe in what they are trying to do? Either way it's bad but to do it just to gain election on incitement seems worse somehow.

I am sure there are far better things these people should concern themselves with. It's a great pity though for several reasons :-(
