Anyone who has to say 'I'm not homophobic' after talking about gay people has made an idiot of themselves.

Ditto, 'I'm not racist'.

The only exception is when someone has actually been misquoted, or had what they said taken completely out of context by the press.

You kind of are homophobic if that's what you think. Also, explain how it makes them look like 'perverts'?


OK, having actually been to Gay Pride down in Brighton (top laugh by the way, well worth a visit) I would say that the long queues for the portaloos were a bit out of the ordinary (compared to "normal" festivals") and it's not like people were being selfish, quite often two people would use the same toilet at the same time...

Also I do have to say that living in Bristol and the reaction that one "Gay Rights" group had to the idea that the council was going to clearing scrub and bushes from the Clifton Downs (a public park for those that don't know), has caused me to wonder about being homophobic sometimes, after all I agree with the council, bushes should be cleared if people are going to be fucking in them irrespective of their sexuality, but apparantly wanting to stop people picking up strangers and fucking them in park bushes is "homophobic" and all

EVERYONE should give me 1 everyday. You would not even miss it. It would just be one less unhealthy snack for you to chomp down on. Give up the large Mc D's and just get a normal one each day. It's all I ask.

By calling it a "gay pride parade", it gives the uninformed (and potential homophobics) the impression that all gays are into kinky sex, and always wear black leather and those weird belt things, and have sex all the time with no time for anything else, and go around the streets fucking and sucking anyone and everyone. This is clearly not the case, but this is the message these kinds of exhibitions convey.

If only it wasn't called "gay pride", then it could just be an outlet for people of whichever sexual preference who have an interest in all things kinky and perverted. "We're kinky and we're proud."

Is there a Sodomy Pride parade?



I've seen a few gay rights parades in my time and have never witnessed the debauchery you are talking about.

The problem is with the homophobes, not with the 'kinky' gay people.

Funnily enough I was in London on gay pride day this year, and I didn't see anyone wearing black leather or engaging in kinky sex. I was so dissapointed! Did see a few people in fancy dress in the evening, but it turned out they were groups out for hen and stag nights. Disgraceful!

Edit: Actually Squid, I think you might have confused Gay Pride with Leather pride

But seriously - I believe a universal student allowance is a bad thing. Do you have a universal student allowance in the UK? We don't here, and the amount of 'student representatives' who call for it when it's absolutely not the best thing they could call for (more funding for universities and higher student allowance thresholds, sure, but not a universal student allowance).



Thats a good one pigeon, in scotland every student has their fees paid for them... rich folk dont need there fees paid - give the money to the poor folk who cant afford to go to uni without killing themselves working all hours!



And while we're at it, lets make rich pensioners pay for their prescriptions.  2 tier systems-Fun for all the classes!

It's a very simple system: Either everyone should have it or no-one should.


Cant say I agree with that.  Yes to a certain extent there should a minimum that everyone is entitled to, but theres nothing wrong with a two-tier system if it narrows the wealth gap.

And no, I dont think rich pensioners should have their prescriptions paid for them... but then that may be my unpopular opinion

I don't think it's homophobic to think that acting like some kind of freaky sex-obsessed hedonist is a bit weird, deliberately provocative or not. If I was gay the stereotypical "scene" (as seen in gay bars and at pride events) would alienate and horrify me, as it does a few gay friends of mine.  Hang on, did I just say "some of my friends are gay"? Have I just lost? Goshdarnit.

My unpopular opinion is that Empireonline sucks balls it keeps taking all my fecking posts away, i've been at 10000 around 5 times now. Also pages of the Scottish thread keep going away

Anyway Lemon fanta is the best soft drink of course along with Irn Bru from a glass bottle.

 I loved this bit:

quote:

  
The Los Angeles Gay Pride Parade, Thorne noted, is part of a decades-old gay-rights tradition. But, for mainstream heterosexuals unfamiliar with irony and the reclamation of stereotypes for the purpose of exploding them, the parade resembled an invasion of grotesque outer-space mutants, bent on the destruction of the human race.


To answer your point (and Squid's) seriously, anyone who thinks that the gay club/bar scene, or the extravagance of a gay pride parade, is representative of all gay people everywhere needs their head examined. As a straight woman I'm absolutely horrified by the meat-market atmosphere and drug use of the straight club scene, and prefer a good movie or a night in front of the telly. But then no-one tries to define me, or deny me basic human rights, based on what happens in that scene. Well, apart from certain radical religious groups. Nothing made me want to visit Tiger Tiger as much as finding out that someone tried to bomb the place.

No-one looks at the shenanigans some of those stag and hen parties get up to and brands all straight people as freaky sex-obsessed hedonists.

Having walked through Soho at 11.30 pm on the night of gay pride and seen nothing worse than a few couples kissing, I really don't see what all the fuss is about.
