Hateful Homophobia

The front page of The Express is the most hateful piece of journalism since Jan Moir spewed bile at Stephen Gately the day before his funeral. But what is more horrific is the attitude of Supreme Court judge Lord Rodger (yes, that’s his real name). He clearly thought he was striking a blow for liberation and equality when he said gay people’s right to live freely must be protected.

He said: “Just as male hetero­sexuals are free to enjoy themselves playing rugby, drinking beer and talking about girls with their mates, so male homosexuals are to be free to enjoy themselves going to Kylie concerts, drinking exotically-coloured cocktails and talking about boys with their straight female mates.”

I am speechless in horror. I thought it was a wind up but, amazingly, it isn’t. Thoughts?

I’ll leave the last word to Caitlin Moran:

"I genuinely think reading the Express is a sign of mental illness.It’s actually worse than reading the Daily MALEVOICEOFPATRIACHALOPPRESSION"

What can we do about it?
