Sometimes it's like hitting your head against a brick wall. Every day there's some news story about yet another bunch of homophobes trying to destroy us. The latest controversy being whipped up seems to be coming from Riga, Latvia because the Mayor of London sent a message of support to the organisers of Riga Gay Pride and the fact that they have been twinned with our very successful and influential London Pride event.
The sad thing is they are just so transparent. They are reacting with homophobia of the highest degree because they are scared. Since joining the EU they've managed to plod along quietly avoiding sanctions despite their very non-EU-like behaviour, and now they've got the spotlight on them. Rather than admit they are bigoted bastards, once AGAIN they roll out the religious bandwagon giving themselves an excuse to physically and verbally attack other human beings based on their sexuality. It's absolutely appalling. And now they are scared, and like most animals backed into a corner, they are lashing out. What's really funny though is they have imported American homophobes to Latvia in order to support their anti-gay sentiment. I have a lot of faith though that this is an act of desperation, I think governmentally imposed homophobia is going to start being demolished in Latvia not least because their overreaction has caused so much attention that human rights groups and governments of other countries are not ever going to stop until Latvia reforms its backwards thinking.
One of the American homophobes really astounded me. He's written a book called, 'The Pink Swastika- Homosexuality in the Nazi Party'. Can you believe it? It actually claims that "homosexualism" gave birth to Nazi imperialism and was the cause of the Holocaust. Erm. Right. That must have been why gays were exterminated too.
I mean really, I always think I've heard the most ludicrous homophobic argument and then a new one just waits for me round the corner.
But I'm tired. I'm so tired of all this hatred, it's just this never ending circle of bullshit. The argument FOR gay people has been laid out on the table and accepted by most intelligent western societies as valid, and the wheels of equality are (albeit slowly) turning. But then there are these countries that see the argument and simply deny it's correct. Their reasoning is crap beyond belief, but nevertheless they stand by it despite all logic. How can you fight against an enemy like that? One that just simply refuses to see the facts laid out in front of them.
