Well of course it's a catchy title, the whole point is to try and get feedback and traffic to the thread.
I have a number of reasonable questions to ask. But let me give you some context first. The previous site owner, Mr. David Cochrane is gay and in my opinion, this was of enormous assistance in making the site as popular and successful as it was/is.
Mr. Cochrane was on the Times Blog this morning and coincidentally highlighted a blog by Una Mullaly here on gay-bashing: Gay-bashing, gay marriage, and how the media needs to get a grip. | Pop Life
I would consider myself to be mainstream in my circumstances in that (a) I am not gay, (b) I have gay friends and (c) have had some misunderstandings in relation to gay people - I invited the work crowd at my going away party to The George out of complete innocence many moons ago....
What I'm interested is getting some feedback from this site as to where people see themselves and the country with regards to the LGBT 'dilemma'. In particular, I mention this in context with The Labour Party, because for reasons I can't fully understand, they seem to be fully committed to advancing same-sex relationships to that of a married couple. This surely puts the party on a collision course with elements within FG who are deemed inordinately conservative.
Indeed, considering the emphasis that Labour put into same-sex equality, is it possible that the division of the coalition will come from something as left-field as this?
So where are we with this subject. Based on Mullaly's article, we don't seem to have travelled too far down the road....
