Thread Name: HOMOPHOBIA in British Folk Movement
Subject: RE: HOMOPHOBIA in British Folk Movement
Why are these controversial MUSIC issues being moved and hidden away down in the BS section? And who is making the decision that if the topic of disuccion is about controversial racist/homophobic folk songs, that the discussion isn't legitimately about music, but must be about politics instead?

Or, if the subject being discussed is the tolerance of racism and homophobia in the folk music community, again, why is the discussion being hidden away in the BS section? Surely, these subjects are not only worthy of inclusion in the music section, but belong there.
