This is cool. Thanks to ‘mlebwadtol’, who left the link as a comment after my previous post and seems to have picked their name after watching Countdown.
Read the most challenged books of 2006 – featuring the above, And Tango Makes Three, which is: “about two male penguins parenting an egg from a mixed-sex penguin couple. It tops the list of most challenged books in 2006 by parents and administrators according to the American Library Association for challenged for homosexuality, anti-family, and unsuited to age group.”
Damn gay penguins, fucking up the family. Made me think of Richard Littlejohn’s column in today’s Daily Mail. To paraphrase the article, it goes something like: “Blah, blah, blah, scathing wit. Blah, blah, blah, anti-Labour. Blah, blah, blah, right-wing ignorance. Blah, blah, blah SURPRISINGLY calling for Billy Bragg to be Knighted! (Sorry about the previous slur, sir!) Blah, blah, blah, views on homosexuality…”
It’s the gay bit I want to talk about. To be honest, I don’t disagree with his view as it reads in his column although, I admit, I don’t know the whole story as I haven’t had time to peer behind the Daily Mail’s hate-field. But why, oh why does he have to word it to sound like the embarrassing uncle who sits by you at parties and explains what’s wrong with the world…
Some of my favourite extracts:
“Sensible gays with a sense of humour…” (Meaning any gay who objects to being hurled abuse at is clearly just not sensible and should lighten up)
“The only people who want this illiberal, totalitarian legislation are intolerant, professional homosexuals…” (As opposed to tolerant, amateur homosexuals)
“Where’s it all going to end? A few weeks ago, I discovered that white heterosexuals from Essex are now classed officially as a vulnerable minority in some parts of the country.” (Well Littlejohn, if it’s only in some parts of the country you should be sensible and stay in Essex – I mean, get a sense of humour, man!)
Don’t worry Rich, I’ll support you in your cause by calling you an obnoxious, gay, butt-munching, cock-stroking sperm-dumpster. Whoop! Everyone’s offended!
