    Dorothy Pratt, Is a Prat! But then, Who takes note of what idiot MPs in any Country says?

  2. Simon Murphy 6 Aug 2009, 4:50pm

    Contact her on wwwDOTpratt-mp.websDOTcom to give her feedback on her views

  3. How extremely offensive. Of course homosexuality is normal and of course nature intended it to exist and nature uses it specifically to provide additional parents. If you look at it from a scientific, natural point of view gay individuals were created to fulfill the role of adoptive parents. She is hugely ignorant.

  4. I think Dorothy Pratt is not a normal part of life. That is all the comment this news item is worth.

  5. Well all I can say is, for someone with such a bigoted view on things as this woman, her parents obviously didn’t do a very good job as she certainly doesn’t have a “balanced view” on life. And with a name like Pratt I’m not surprised!

  6. Queer relationships are more stable that hetro ones.

    So normal is 40% of hetro marriages ending in divorce, high levels of domestic abuse and child abuse.

    If this is what society calls normal maybe they should have a rethink.

  7. Well it’s a normal part of my life, and I don’t think I’m alone in that opinion. Blinkered old hag.

  8. Earwig! Oh!! Again!!!

    “Life gits tedious, don’t it?”

    Who sang that?

    K

  9. lol i think she is not normal why do i get the feeling she wishies she was a gay man lol all jokeing aside i shall say what bi just said in a diffent thread to put it simply for anyone to understand Homosexuality adds a balance to nature hence why there are gay ainmals its stops over popalation of that speices hence why it happneds its all part of the Evolution factor (i tried to put it a diffent way but my spelling sucks) and thats comeing from me a gay pagan you see i do not go by faith a lone a go by logic and facts as well as my faith
    blessings of love and light

  10. Yes, it’s not a normal part of life…. if you live under a rock. On Mars.

    Stupid cow.

    Question:-

    Is it possible to construct a sentence, in English, in the imperative mood and in doing so, employ just 16 letters, arranged as four words, each of those words being formed by four letters….?

    The (or ‘an’) answer will be given at the end of this fred…

    This woman’s views shouldn’t be taken seriously. She’s an extremist who was first elected for the far-right One Nation party.

  14. A born Pratt. Just another opportunistic pseudo-politician who’s now getting the media coverage she desperately craves.

  15. Erik the Kiwi 6 Aug 2009, 11:58pm

    She obviously needs to get out and meet more people! Possibly she comes from a small family and therefore doesn’t know of any GLBT relations! I have only one lesbian cousin that I know of, but my partner has twin sisters who are lesbian (so making three out of the nine siblings being non-straight) and a number of others amongst his cousins and one nephew are gay or lesbian too.
    Also, one of the lesbian sisters is a mother and grandmother, and we have had custody of over 20 children from the family in the last 11 years. Our youngest is now 16 and we’ve had him since he was 5. We’ve also done it with the full support of social workers, courts, and government departments, so i think we need to get this Aussie over ‘the ditch’ here to New Zealand to see how it can be done!

  16. This creature oozed out of a short-lived political party in Australia called One Nation. A lot like the British National Party. Our Liberal (Conservatives) under John Howard enacted most of the One Nation policies and One Nation then disappeared off the political scene. A few of them survived in the Queensland state parliament and this creature went Independent. Queensland is like the Deep South of the USA, full of ferals and religious nutters. Nothing would surprise me what this woman would say!

  17. The C*nt of Monte Crisco 7 Aug 2009, 8:06am

    WTF is up with the woman’s hair? That’s my main concern! She needs to cover that Frankenstein forehead pronto! She’s a monster pratt!

  18. @Tony I have been saying the same thing for a longtime. Gays are vital to the survival of the human race and also to nurture and adopt children rejected by the breeders or have children through surrogate means. Gays make very good, loving, caring parents and vreate good stable families.

    Pratt is going through her menopausal, mentality and imagination phase called mad cow syndrome or disease and should be ignored. Sad ignorant female.

  19. Here you are, Keith ;) : youtube.com/watch?v=oRr4dne_TVA

    “WTF is up with the woman’s hair?” My thought exactly – but I’m now concerned with what’s going on UNDER her hair…

    I don’t get why people keep saying that gay adoption is a sensitive issue. My friend was brought up by her mother and grandmother, and lots of children grow up in single-parent households. “Oh, but it’s the SEX!” I hear the bigots cry. Well, heterosexual couples have sex too… Let me assure you that young children know nothing about sex, and even as they get older and understand about it, the LAST thing they think about is what their parents do in bed.

    Homosexuality is found in more than 450 species so it can hardly be called unnatural. Sadly, bigotry seems to be reserved for the human race.

  20. Might not be normal for you sweetheart but it is for us so get off our case!

  21. Dave North 7 Aug 2009, 2:11pm

    It really is quite frightening to think that across the globe, such ignorant blinkered idiots are in positions of power.

  22. well you certainly have the right surname Dorothy

  23. Taarraaah!

    Is the is case of Iris Murdock’s famous psychiatrist who can cure people of being “gay”, so curing this MP of her “anti-gay” views should be a piece of piss.

    Maybe she and Iris are related in their distant past – on the convict side of the family?

  24. You know what isn’t normal? A woman being homophobic. With hair like that, it shows she has never met a gay man in her life. Don’t these women realize they’ve been brainwashed by straight men?

  25. Benji Starr 7 Aug 2009, 8:57pm

    Thanks for that…!

    Half way thro’ it…the singer I had in mind -but couldn’t place – came… BURL IVES… but this is the original, I think, that I knew as a child… and is great…so thanks again…!

    Why do not these loo-looz just eff off with their daft comments…this mad slag, Iris Robinson, Kenneth Gunn, Michael Nazir-Ali and all the rest of the gumbies…

  27. Children living without any parents in orphanages is much more normal.

  28. Alex, Brisbane, Australia 8 Aug 2009, 1:46am

    This woman is just trying to get her 15 minutes… when i read this the only thing i could think is how sad it will be when she judges her own children or grandchildren by her values, and how sad it will be when they cannot be truthful about their orientation with her. Homophobes will always be hit by karma, and what they fear most will come knocking at their door. The good thing is that the Courier Mail (daily rag here in Brissie) had over 500 comments on this story, mostly speaking out against her an her moronic point of view.

  29. upandatem 8 Aug 2009, 5:05am

    I19- Homosexuality is found in more than 450 species so it can hardly be called unnatural.

    Sorry to burst your bubble…

    “There is…documented proof of cannibalism and rape in the animal kingdom, but that doesn’t make it right for humans.” While some animals (like the lion) eat their young, neither supporters or opponents of “gay rights” have used this as an argument in favor of infanticide or cannibalism. Thus, a healthy dose of wariness needs to be employed in making scientific claims about homosexual animals justifying homosexual humans.

    Dr. Antonio Pardo, Professor of Bioethics at the University of Navarre, Spain, wrote:

    “ Properly speaking, homosexuality does not exist among animals…. For reasons of survival, the reproductive instinct among animals is always directed towards an individual of the opposite sex. Therefore, an animal can never be homosexual as such. Nevertheless, the interaction of other instincts (particularly dominance) can result in behavior that appears to be homosexual. Such behavior cannot be equated with an animal homosexuality. All it means is that animal sexual behavior encompasses aspects beyond that of reproduction.”

  30. upandatem 8 Aug 2009, 5:08am

    T3- If you look at it from a scientific, natural point of view gay individuals were created to fulfill the role of adoptive parents.

    Can I have some evidence from science and nature please especially the idea that you were created?

  31. upandatem 8 Aug 2009, 5:15am

    A6-Queer relationships are more stable that hetro ones.

    These statements would sugesst otherwise.

    A recent study by the Canadian government states that “violence was twice as common among homosexual couples compared with heterosexual couples”.

    In regards to homosexual couples and domestic violence, studies indicate that as a whole homosexual couples have higher rates of promiscuity than heterosexual couples. In addition, studies report that homosexual couples have significantly higher incidences of violent behavior. These studies are not surprising at all given what pathologists have stated regarding the commonness and brutality of homosexual murders.

    Regarding studies regarding homosexual couples and violence, a recent study by the Canadian government regarding homosexual couples states that “violence was twice as common among homosexual couples compared with heterosexual couples”. According the American College of Pediatricians who cite several studies which show that violence among homosexual couples is two to three times more common than among married heterosexual couples.

    The American College of Pediatricians states the following: “Homosexual partnerships are significantly more prone to dissolution than heterosexual marriages with the average homosexual relationship lasting only two to three years.”

    In June of 2004, the journal Nursing Clinics of North America reported the following regarding homosexual couples:

    “Domestic abuse is under-reported in the gay community…
    Male-on-male same-sex domestic violence also has been reported in couples where one or both persons are HIV-positive. Intimate partner abuse and violence include humiliation, threatening to disclose HIV status, withholding HIV therapy, and harming family members or pets.

  32. upandatem 8 Aug 2009, 5:22am

    P27-Children living without any parents in orphanages is much more normal.

    Having worked in one, I can assure you that there is nothing normal about being an orphan child. Such a statement just shows how low you will stoop to massage your ego.

  33. Well, Dorothy, pet, homosexuality is now, sadly NOT ‘part of the lives’ of the poor victims in Israel a few days ago.

    ‘Life’ is not part of their life any more is it; no going for a dip in the blue ocean; no barbecues; the list of no’s is endless; they are dead….and that’s not to mention the wider grief.

    A barbarous act and one in which YOU and so many others are complicit with in the airing of your ignorance.

    Words really can kill.

    Welcome back up-and-at-em:

    Not every gay site can willigly give you an interesting insight into the realities of homosexuality, but can also teach you how to develop a healthy sesnse of humour, sonething which you desperately lack:

    Ready? OK, let’s start with an easy one, in memory of the recent victims of your hatred:

    3 men died and went to the gates of heaven, where St. Peter decided that they weren’t bad or good enough to be determined where to be sent.

    So he sent them back to earth and said he was giving each one a temptation test.

    The irish dude was walking around when he saw a bar. He couldn’t resist and just as he was about to open the door to the bar he got pulled under into hell.

    The other 2 guys were scared.

    The Jewish bugger was walking on when he saw a $ rupee;) note on the ground. He tried to resist but finally bent down to pick it up.

    His mate,the Greek guy was suddenly pulled under!!

    Ain’t that funny! Go ahead and tell it to your children as part of their evening prayers, you fuckwit.

    Father O’Flannagan dies due to old age. Upon entering St.Peter’s gate, there is another man in front, waiting to go into heaven.

    St. Peter asks the man:

    “What is your name what did you accomplish during your life?”

    The man responds:

    “My name is Joe Cohen, and I was a New York city Taxi driver for 14 years.”

    “Very well,” says St. Peter, “Here is your silk robe and golden scepter, now you may walk in the streets of our Lord.”

    St. Peter looks at the Father, and asks:

    “What is your name and what did you accomplish?”

    He responds:

    “I’m Father O’Flannagan, and have devoted the last 62 years to the Lord.”

    “Very well,” says St. Peter, “Here is your cotton robe and wooden staff, you may enter.”

    “Wait a minute,” says O’Flannagan, “You gave the taxi driver a silk robe and golden scepter; why did I only get a cotton robe and wooden staff?”

    “Well,” St. Peter replied, “We work on a performance scale, you see while you preached, everyone slept, when he drove taxis, everyone prayed!”

    And what is this about “Keith …come back to us safe and sound…”

    Why where am I…?

    Very good..!

    The word ‘raticupe’ – at # 45 – really boiled my brain (it didn’t take long; it’s only a small one)…I liked ‘raticupe’…it should be in the Queen’s English, (it will be in THIS queen’s English as from..)…er..maybe for ‘over-cooked rhubarb’… but I usually try to give a clue when I speak Mangle-ese, as to the real identity of the word.
    For ‘ridicule’…I would have come up with some tosh like ‘ridicloot’ or possibly ‘roodiclit’….but with so many ladies perusing these comments, the latter is possibly norra gud choyce…

    En partant, mon cher Roi, est-ce que je peux Vous souhaiter un tres bon Sunday et bon appetit, plus tard, avec le dindon, spuds rotis, et chewy-fleur…

    Bonjour Keith:

    Bienvenu chez toi. Je ne savais que tu étais de retour.

    I may have given
    you an incomplete address
    to hear some Acadain french.
    The official site of the 2009 Acadain
    Congress (sounds inportant, eh) is www dot cma2009 dot ca.
    The celerations began 2 days ago and will go on till
    the 27th I think. Anyway, I expect the videos
    on the site will change every day.

    Enjoy!

    Oh, and just so we can say this is relevant, wouldn’t it be grand if the Honorable Pratt could join the Acadian celebrations and give us her spin on what is normal, just so we’ll know next year.
    Acadianism aleady a multi-million dollar tourist attraction, but I’m sure she could add her two cents worth; freedom of speech and all that.

  51. JEAN PAUL..!

    Thanks for that linguistics link….!

    Exactly…!
    And just as a point …and also to keep it relevant..

    Isn’t it true that there are no ABSOLUTES in life…’cept maybe DEATH and TAXES.

    There is no ABSOLUTE FRENCH language, no ABSOLUTE ENGLISH language.

    I was sitting on a bus going into town listening with amazement at some Cameroun ladies in all their finery going off to church and rattling off and I was thinking “I wonder if that is Xhosa”….but no ‘click’…”maybe Ewe..Ga.. maybe….Fante.”..?

    No…then it suddenly dawned ….it was French…!

    ‘L mism’ exact com muits altrs lengs ce descendivu’t d’a a ‘Latin’ d’origen…

    Who is to say what the French language is?
    Who is to say what the English language is?
    Who is to say what the Human Sexuality language is…?

    There’s no such thing as FLOWER except as a concept…only varieties of flowers roses, daisies and of course, us, pansies…!

    There are no ABSOLUTES…only varieties in life.
    And the quicker all these tits wake up to that fact….the bet…

    We might just stop lobbin’ bombs and insults and killin’ kids.

    K

  52. “Enfin retrouves dans la force de l’amour….enfin rassembles dans la force de l’amour….les carrillions de l’Acadie!…”

    Great that, Jean-Paul…!
    Grands mercis…!
    Ca me gene, et je m’excuse, que je n’ai pas les ‘accents diacritiques’ quan’ je t’ecris…

    Anyway, thanks again…

    K…..

  53. Again, Jean-Paul a.k.a. Bentham and Keith!

    Perhaps Keith and Jean-Paul a.k.a. Bentham could get a private forum to talk this nonsense? Please? I wudl encourage yo both to say something relevant, or keep it in private. This isn’t a comedy show.

    The head priest at a certain church was out for the day, so he asked the deacon to do confession for him.

    The deacon agrees, and the first person that comes says:

    “Forgive me, for I just gave a guy a blow job.”

    He says:

    “You have sinned.”

    Then he looks at the sheet on the wall that had punishments for certain sins on it, but blow job was not on there, so he went out to ask one of the altar boys what the head priest usually gives for a blow job.

    The altar boy answered:

    “Oh, about five dollars.”

    A lady walks into Tiffany’s.

    She looks around, spots a beautiful diamond bracelet and walks over to inspect it.

    As she bends over to look more closely, she lets out a fart..

    Very embarrassed, she looks around nervously to see if anyone has
    noticed her little accident and prays that a sales person doesn’t pop up right now.

    As she turns around, her worst nightmare materializes in the form of a salesman standing right behind her.

    Cool as a cucumber, he displays all of the qualities one would expect of a professional salesman in a store like Tiffany’s, and greets the lady with:

    ‘Good day, Madam. How may we help you today?’

    Feeling uncomfortable, but still hoping that the salesman may not have been there at the time of her little ‘accident’, she asks:

    ‘Sir, what is the price of this lovely bracelet?’

    He answers:

    ‘Madam, if you farted just looking at it, you’re going to
    shit when I tell you the price!

  65. Jean-Paul a.k.a. Bentham 10 Aug 2009, 11:04am

    How many fundamentalists does it take to change a light bulb?

    Who cares? They’re in the dark if they change the bulb or not.

  66. What lies on its back, one hundred feet in the air?

    A dead centipede.

  67. “Going through life with a vocabulary of six words is definitely not recommended.”

    Coming from the man with the grammatical prowess of a retarded parrot.

    NARTH is not scientific. Never was. This is where you (and your many personalities) source your nonsense. Lets have a look at the lies, shall we:-

    2008 May: THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF PSYCHIATRISTS, expressed the opinion that not only do the methods recommended by the NARTH group of Christian Psychiatrists not work, but that the methods create a setting in which prejudice and discrimination can flourish.

    July 2009 NARYH: “a singular conclusion: Homosexuality is not innate, immutable or without significant risk to medical, psychological, and relational health.” Yet, despite the fact that NARTH concludes that homosexuality develops after a person is born, they provide no review of the evidence which addresses that topic. How very unscientific of them. Surely the evidence is in abundance as they suggest? No? Clearly not.

    NARTH’s Dr. Spitzer’s “Archives of Sexual Behaviour” paper has been criticized for using non-random sampling and poor criteria for success:-
    – The then APA president, Lawrence Hartmann, a professor at Harvard Medical School, called Spitzer’s study “too flawed to publish.”
    – Psychologist Douglas Haldeman of the University of Washington commented that there is no credible scientific evidence that sexual orientation can be changed, “and this study doesn’t prove that either.”
    – The key issue here was all or almost all of the 200 subjects interviewed were referred by reparative therapists or by Christian transformational ministries. Apparently all or almost all of the clients were evangelical Christians.

    …one can only conclude after reading this appallingly written study that he found his MD in a duster.

    All the following Organisations have spoken out against NARTH, stating that NARTH is not scientific, and anti-gay agenda driven:-

    – American Psychiatric Association
    – American Psychological Association
    – American Counseling Association
    – National Association of Social Workers
    – American Academy of Pediatrics
    – American Association of School Administrators
    – American Federation of Teachers
    – National Association of School Psychologists
    – National Education Association

    Wow. Thats a lot. And Agenda driven? So, its NARTH that are the propaganda nazi’s? What a surprise. What shall we call this, then, the antihomostapo?

    Your lies are simply the rantings of a foolish, and unedcuated old nobody, who doesn’t have the brains even to imagine an argument that’s not a house of cards.

    Pathetic.

  68. Oh Will, Will…I…I…I think I see the light now. You were right all along. Oh, I’m such a fool. You sound like such a virile young man. It’s been so long since I’ve wrapped my mouth…I mean my arms around a beautiful man like you, so forceful, so …sigh..so manly. I want you, I need you…I…I…I think I love you. There I’ve said it at last. Fuck the Fundies, I know what I want. Can I smell your underwear? Please. Oh, I’m coming…Praise the Lo-o-ord!!!

  69. Perhaps Keith and Jean-Paul a.k.a. Bentham could get a private forum to talk this nonsense? Please? I wudl encourage yo both to say something relevant, or keep it in private. This isn’t a comedy show.

  70. Thanks, Will :) upandatem, you seem to find it very easy to pretend to be a gay men. Not many straight men would find that so easy to write. Why not see a counsellor and come to find out about your own sexuality? That’s not a taunt, it’s a suggestion. You seem to have a lot of issues.

  71. Oh Iris, Iris, please help me. That wasn’t really me who posted that. It was some imposter, some low-life imposter. Do you really think I could stoop so low as to grovel at Will’s feet…his feet…his little toes..m-m-m-m-m-mé yummy yummy. Stop looking at me like that, go away…yummy, yummy… ah-h-h-h-h

  72. Hi Iris,

    I’m afraid it’s too late for uppiatdem. Call the ambulance, and tell them to be gentle; he’s not well, that’s all.

  73. #71.

    UPANDATEM.

    Now why would there be a (French) ‘accent aigu’….on the “…me..”
    ….(sorry I have no diacritics on my laptop, so cannot quote exactly)…?

    Just look along the UPANDATEM post @ #71 “m-m-m-m-m-me yummy…..”

    The ‘me’ before the first ‘yummy’…………?

    ACCENT AIGU…!
    (Acute accent…French e…)

    And also as I write, apologies to “Tony”, above, [..#53 & #69..] up whose nose I/we seem to have got with my/our inanities…

    I do have a reply, Tony; but, well, what the hell; easier to just back off and apologise; life will tell you far more than I ever could….and with much less kindness, sadly for you.

    Keith.
    SALFORD.

  74. Keith:

    Très bonne question. We believe it comes from the 17th century French our ancestors spoke when they arrived in the Noo Whirl.

    Back then the French country folks didn’t say ‘moi’, they said ‘moé’. There are hundreds of words like that and an Acadian can now take a University degree learning how to speak 17th century French. Why?

    Well, what did Nixon say when someone asked him why the Americans wanted to go to the moon:

    “Because it’s there!”

    We can actually buy a sizable dictionary of old Acadian words and expressions. My partner, a banker, makes a hobby of it. He can talk for hours on the phone, and it sounds like Chinese to me, but I’m so cluttered… I mean kultured, me, a real snoot. yuk yuk.

    Acadian French gets worse when the kids mix in English words like:

    “J’m’en va au ‘garage’ mette du ‘gaz’ dans l’car’ pi après ça j’m’en va au ‘theatre’ voir un ‘show’.” Then when daddy tells them to speak right, they will answer:

    “Aw, va’t’fucké!” Love it, just love it!

    No University degree in that yet, but we call it ‘Shiak’. Don’t ass me…well, check with me later. yuk yuk.

    I do believe Tony the party pooper is none other than zipiddidoodah in disguise. Holy Hallowe’en, Batman! Slip out of your clothes!

    Bon ben, j’va aller manger mes ‘fish & chips’ asteur. Bye.

  75. T3- If you look at it from a scientific, natural point of view gay individuals were created to fulfill the role of adoptive parents.

    Can I have some evidence from science and nature please especially the idea that you were created?

    Still waiting for the evidence, which in all probability you don’t have. You are just parroting what you have been told.

    Still waiting for the evidence.

  76. They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery. Thankyou that you think so highly of me.

  77. W67-Your lies are simply the rantings of a foolish, and unedcuated old nobody, who doesn’t have the brains even to imagine an argument that’s not a house of cards.

    I must have learnt it from you W as you never provide conrete evidence. Just hate filled, foul mouthed, bigoted and childish rants.

    My group is up to about 30 posts where we have asked for evidence. Response – NIL!!! just brain dead ranting and raving. No wonder we think you are void of all reality.

  78. W67-Your lies are simply the rantings of a foolish, and unedcuated old nobody,

    As I have told you before I have four degrees and qualifications as a workplace trainer. But in your demented and feverish hysteria your only response is “liar” Very intelligent I must say.

  79. I 70-you seem to find it very easy to pretend to be a gay men.

    Evidence please??

    Not many straight men would find that so easy to write.

    Evidence please??

    Why not see a counsellor and come to find out about your own sexuality?

    You mean the sort that has enabled me to marry, have kids and now grandchildren. Is that different to homosexuality?

    That’s not a taunt, it’s a suggestion.

    And a bloody stupid one at that

    You seem to have a lot of issues.

    Evidence please?? and you might like to get your mates to provide the evidence that we have asked for on 30 other occasions.

  80. Well thanks very much for that, JP, but I was referring to the actual comment made by UPANDATEM in #71.
    In HIS post, #71, there is an ‘accent aigu’..as I describe in my post at # 73….why should that be, assuming that his is the standard British keyboard..?

    Just wanted to iron that out…so apple-logs to TOE-KNEE once more.

    Keith.

  81. “Evidence please?? and you might like to get your mates to provide the evidence that we have asked for on 30 other occasions.”

    What evidence? That evolution is correct? That dinosaurs didn’t exist at the same time as human beings? That the world isn’t 6000 years old?

    You’ve been given evidence many times – you’ve just chosen to ignore it. When someone attempts to enter into a courteous discussion with you, you post raving, offensive posts. No wonder people have given up trying.

    I don’t believe you actually WANT evidence at all. It’s an annoying inconvenience that interrupts your nasty evangelising – not spreading the word of God, but spreading hate. If anyone’s possessed by demons/Satan it’s you. I printed out this thread and showed it to the Vicar who visits the school where I work to take Assembly, and asked him what he thought. He was quiet for so long, I got embarrassed and thought I’d offended him somehow, but he eventually answered. He shook his head and said that you needed to return to the love of Jesus. He then suggested that you might be ‘disturbed’ – his exact word. He asked me what denomination you were from, but I didn’t know because you’ve never said.

    Care to enlighten me?

  82. UPANDATEM.
    FROM YOUR COMMENT… #79

    “You mean the sort that has enabled me to marry, have kids and now grandchildren. Is that different to homosexuality?…”

    GIVE ME STRENGTH..!

    Are you for real, UPANDATEM…?
    What sort of a defence is THAT in asserting that you are not homosexually/homo-erotically inclined….?

    My first – and only – boyfriend was a married man with three, young-teenaged, kids.
    I was 50 or so; he was 36.
    He came home from work unexpectedly early one day to find his wife in bed with another man.

    “Right!” he said, “You do what YOU want and I’ll do what I want…”
    He immediately came out, frequented the gay haunts of the time, late 1970’s – early 1980’s and found me, who had also just ‘come out’…two cock-virgins in a storm..

    I was just a stepping stone; we were ‘together’ for a year.
    He then found what he REALLY was looking for and that was a very young boy, still at school in actual fact; he used to wait for him at the school gates…

    They are STILL together some 25 or so years later.

    Or another friend;( and only a friend, no romanticals); he also was married, and already a grandfather in the 1980’s

    Came out when it was legal to do so; same period late 1970’s early 1980’s; army captain, boxer…

    He went to Thailand and fell just totally ga-ga for a ‘katoey’ – a lady-boy.

    Came back here; told the wife, the daughter and that was that…!

    Divorced!
    Dumped Britain too..
    Gone…!

    Evidence, you want?

    Don’t talk through yer back passage, UPANDATEM, save it for shittin’ – or in your case talkin’…

    I have been reading your drivvel, patiently, without comment, for weeks; but this latest turd you dropped needs cleaning up.

    TOE-KNEE!…RELEVANT ENOUGH..?

    Keith.

  83. UPANDATEM!!!

    Hiding behind the wee wifey, the kids and now the grandchildren is a ‘no hiding place’…UPANDATEM…!

    Park toilets at 3 in the morning are full of just such as you.

    So is the Middle Walk along Blackpool prom, from the Cenotaph, at North Pier, past the Imperial Hotel and up to Gynn Square, and that is 24/7 actually.

    No hiding place, UPANDATEM!

    Turds still stink wherever they are hid…
    Face it…!
    Deal with it..!

    You, too, are ‘one of the boys'; a mate of Dorothy’s..
    I’d clap eyes on thi’ but 2 minutes and I’d have thi’ sussed; and that’s what bugs thee, that tha’d be found out.

    Still trying to be relevant Tony…hope it meets with your appr…

    Me bum!

    Keith.

  84. Mrs. Iris Robinson..!
    You are a daft twat…!
    End of..!

    Oh?
    Ooops…!
    Just realised that’s the silly Irish cow…

    I meant of course, Dorothy Aptly-Named….across Auntie’s Podes…

    Possibly an even DAFTER twat…!

    Really, ‘ladies…’..shouldn’t you be in a kitchen somewhere…or under some man, or other…doing something ‘contributory’..?

    Not opening your maws and coming out with …well, whatever.

    Ckuff off, the pair of you.

    Keith.

  85. If you two morons, Robinson and Pratt, were just daft, it wouldn’t matter; but you are ‘dangerous daft…’

    So was Idi Amin.
    K

  86. Keith (80):

    Oh.

  87. Iris (81):

    Very good point. Why didn’t I think of that?

    WHICH DENOMINATION IS UPANDATEM REPRESENTING?

    Certainly is not mainstream Christianity, that’s for sure. Not Baptist either. not Methodist.

    Why would a Christian fail to identify himself/herself? Ashamed or what?

    We have no problem identifying ourselves, do we? And we’re the ‘queer’ ones???

    A while back someone said that it’s useless to talk reason to someone who did not use reason to formulate an opinion. That’s what I call a sharp observation.

    Four university degrees? What’s to prevent me from saying that I also have four? I would be proud to name the universities if I were to bring up my scholastic achievements in a debate, wouldn’t you?

    It’s not easy to believe such claims. Intelligent people don’t go around tooting their own horn. When did Einstein ever say he was a university graduate?

    These are the little details that trip him/her up.

    Also, I think you are spot on when you say that he/she doesn’t really want evidence. Man o man, if I really wanted evidence I would be hanging on Will’s every word. Yea Will!!!

    It used to be interesting coming to visit PinkNews, remember? Now it’s just one hate-filled disruption from some ex-gay Fundie after another. Some guys I know do not want to visit here anymore. All they want is a gay-friendly site, that’s all. What’s wrong with that?

    Cheez, when we go on Pride Parades, they tell us to get out of their faces; and when we just want to be together peacefully and shoot the breeze, they come after us and tell us to come out.

    Seems to me they don’t know what they want, the ex-gays I mean.
    There were gays around long before there were Christians, long before there were religions of any kind.

    Poor ex-gays…married…children…grandfather…yea, yea…tell me another one.

  88. “Evidence please??”

    You’re postings. They’re the evidence.

    They’re puerile, aggressive, silly, foolish, ill though, full of lies and falsities, bigoted, petty, and basically lies.

    And you want more evidence than that?

    Silly, silly, man.

  89. “I printed out this thread and showed it to the Vicar who visits the school where I work to take Assembly, and asked him what he thought. He was quiet for so long, I got embarrassed and thought I’d offended him somehow, but he eventually answered. He shook his head and said that you needed to return to the love of Jesus. He then suggested that you might be ‘disturbed’ – his exact word. He asked me what denomination you were from, but I didn’t know because you’ve never said.”

    This is the same reaction that one would expect from 99.9999% of the christian population.

  90. Four degrees…?
    The Three Degrees were better..sold records in their millions.
    You?
    And your four..?
    ?
    No thanks.

    I suppose gay animals aren’t a normal way of life either? This old bitch from down under I’d say isn’t a normal way of life either. And I’ll just bet she got her idiotic ideas from the “Holely Buy Bull” which to believe in such hogwash isn’t a normal way of life and religious fanatics ought not be allowed to marry or bare children, but be castrated and their women have their tubes cut out so as not to pass along the crazy gene. This broad is nuttier than a basket full of walnuts.

  92. Nature also made us the way we are, and as far as being a ‘normal part of life’, of course its not a normal part of your life if your a straight white woman from the sticks.

  93. Northsider 13 Aug 2009, 6:01pm

    No wonder people have got the idea that you can’t string two intelligent words together.

    81-I don’t believe you actually WANT evidence at all.

    Of course we don’t that is why we keep asking for it.

    81-If anyone’s possessed by demons/Satan it’s you.

    Evidence please !!!!

    81- I printed out this thread and showed it to the Vicar who visits the school where I work to take Assembly, and asked him what he thought. He was quiet for so long, I got embarrassed and thought I’d offended him somehow, but he eventually answered. He shook his head and said that you needed to return to the love of Jesus. He then suggested that you might be ‘disturbed’ – his exact word.

    In the word of one homo here who believes that he knows everything – LIAR!!!

    82-GIVE ME STRENGTH..!
    Try Spirulina.

    82- What sort of a defence is THAT in asserting that you are not homosexually/homo-erotically inclined….?

    One that you wouldn’t understand.

    82-Evidence, you want?

    Of course, I have been told by other homos that a handful of examples are no evidence.

    82-I have been reading your drivvel, patiently, without comment, for weeks; but this latest turd you dropped needs cleaning up.

    But I was told that nobody reads what I write. I guess that was another one of your lies.

    83- Park toilets at 3 in the morning are full of just such as you.

    At 3 in the morning I am cozily wrapped up in bed.

    83-So is the Middle Walk along Blackpool prom, from the Cenotaph, at North Pier, past the Imperial Hotel and up to Gynn Square, and that is 24/7 actually.

    Never been to Blackpool.

    87- and we’re the ‘queer’ ones???

    Now that IS the truth.

    87-Also, I think you are spot on when you say that he/she doesn’t really want evidence. Man o man, if I really wanted evidence I would be hanging on Will’s every word. Yea Will!!!

    I do as it shows me he is devoid of any intelligent comment.

    87-There were gays around long before there were Christians, long before there were religions of any kind.

    Evidence please !!!

    88-They’re puerile, aggressive, silly, foolish, ill though, full of lies and falsities, bigoted, petty, and basically lies.

    Just like yours minus the foul mouthed language you use.

    89-This is the same reaction that one would expect from 99.9999% of the christian population.
