So people are bitching about Same Sex Marriage, but quite sanguine when it comes to the selling off of the NHS. Do you think maybe we have our priorities wrong?
No we don’t.
I mean the vehemence which people are arguing with. If half the effort being put into the Same Sex Marriage bill had been used trying to stop the cuts being made we might not be on the way to a triple-dip recession. To the Government this is just a sop to distract us. It’s got more News Coverage than cutbacks in the NHS, Education, the Armed Forces and Police combined, ffs! Yes, it’s important, but it’s been blown up to divert attention.
Flame away; I have fireproof pants on.
Now perhaps straight MP’s know what it’s like to be on the receiving end of homophobia! And, isn’t it weird that this topic gets people so riled? Shouldn’t we be asking why? Isn’t it just possible that ALL homophobia is driven by an inner-fear of ones own same sex attraction? “If I shout hateful things loudly enough – perhaps the gay voice in my head will go away”. If we are ever to eradicate homophobia in schools, THIS is the question we should be asking. “WHY are you homophobic? People who are comfortable with their sexuality are NEVER homophobic”. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it …?
Are they so stupid that they don’t realise it’s not just a debate and that they are messing with people’s lives?
It sounds like the sum of the “abuse” from the pro-marriage people was telling a homophobe’s children that their dad is a homophobe (which is the truth) and telling people who don’t believe in equality that they have less than great morals (which is also true). Is stating facts considered “vitriolic abuse” these days?
