As you know political correctness is an authoritarian leftie construct to take away our rights and freedoms. To force us to conform to their dystopian world view. To make all of society one uniform shade of grey. We have reached the stage where much political correctness is enshrined in British law and where people go to jail for thought crimes. It is utterly disgusting that there has been such a profound lack of critical faculties in our governing class to allow this to happen. The BBC are the main culprits of forcing this on our society as part of their social conditioning. They should be ashamed.
As a social liberal and libertarian I have no objection whatsoever to homosexuality. People, with mutual consent, can do what they want in their bedrooms. As for homosexual marriage, that is nothing whatsoever to do with the state, people should marry whoever they want.
But I don’t like homosexuality and I don’t know any homosexuals who I like. To me what they do is un-natural and thus a perversion. They are queer. And one thing I especially dislike is that they have stolen one of the nicest words in the English language and applied it to their activities.
Gay means happy. If a place is gay it is bright and attractive. Shakespeare used the word well:
Henry VI, Part III [III, 2]
What other pleasure can the world afford?
I’ll make my heaven in a lady’s lap,
And deck my body in gay ornaments,
And witch sweet ladies with my words and looks.
Richard II [III, 3]
I’ll give my jewels for a set of beads,
My gorgeous palace for a hermitage,
My gay apparel for an almsman’s gown,
My figured goblets for a dish of wood,
Through most of my life most of the people I know have called homosexuals queers. Very many still do. This is frowned upon by the politically correct. Well bad luck. Queer is a far more accurate description than the hijacked word. Gay. Sad would have been a better word to hijack. And everyone knows it.
