It’s not very nice to be called a swivel-eyed loon, but when the shoe fits so well…
Yesterday, we had MPs saying that Christians are being oppressed by the evil aggressive homosexuals. Today, we see yet another story of a serious homophobic assault. This time in London…
Tony Baldry: “Humanists are nice people but this amendment, if passed, would effectively open up marriage, not just to humanists, but open it up to pagans, Jedi Knights, spiritualists”
Cripes. Pagans, Jedi Knights and Spiritualists? We have to keep strict, socially approved limits on the types of magic-sky-fairy believers who are allowed to conduct wedding ceremonies…
Following the #equalmarriage debate on Twitter is like being a kid on a very long car journey. “Are we there yet?” No. Not for a while longer yet…
Next up, MPs will vote on a clause to protect the embattled institution of heterosexual marriage by forcing any young man found with Lady Gaga on their MP3 payer to watch a loop of Pamela Anderson on Baywatch in slow motion.
Makes as much sense as some of the other bollocks being debated in the House today…
Having people beat the shit out of you for being gay is sooo last week. Having people think of you as a bigoted prick for saying ghastly things is the horrifying new face of discrimination.
If you think state and church shouldn’t intermingle, they call you an “aggressive secularist”. If you think marriage shouldn’t just be for straight people, they call you an “aggressive homosexual”. If you aren’t keen on being turned into a Findus ready meal, they’ll call you an “aggressive horse”.
I am an “aggressive” homosexual according to some prat in Westminster. You can tell because my pinky finger sticks out while I am drinking a a G&T, obvs.
Have not been watching the marriage debates but am already drinking…
At the Thames Barrier with @envagency.
Today, the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill returns to the House of Commons. More fun and charades watching politicians debate and vote on my rights. This time, I won’t be watching (or drinking along). I do hope they make the right decision though.
Ladies and gents, now that Tumblr’s fate has been sealed (long, slow decline into the sunset), fire up your scrapers to save the porn.
Yahoo! are proud to announce they are buying Tumblr and will not be treating it like they did Upcoming, MyBlogLog, eGroups, blo.gs, Zimbra, ONElist, Jumpcut, Delicious or GeoCities. Because that would be bad.
That reminds me. I need to actually finish the transition off Tumblr. Having your own domain is so useful.
London buses exist so people can get around the city. They are not mobile tourism information centres. Buy a ticket or get off the fucking bus.
I’m not watching Eurovision. I seem to be massively in the minority…
“We’re sorry, Flickr Search is currently disabled.” Sigh.
Just got around to activating Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools on my site. Wow. I thought I had a dirty mind, but whoever turned up at my site looking for Nadine Dorries porn… just wow.
Numerous people have also turned up at my site after searching for “why gays shouldn’t get married”. Which is quite amusing.
And at least one person arrived having searched for “bad things margaret thatcher did”.
It’s today because back in 1990, the World Health Organization decided that being gay wasn’t a disease. Which is nice. It’s sure nice to not be considered disordered by the medical establishment just because you like dudes.
Anyway, you know, be awesome to one another.
If Plaxo didn’t keep spamming me with invitations to send e-cards to people who were acquaintances a few years ago, I’d have forgotten they still exist.
