# What a difference a Gay makes!

James Rhodes’ love song to Stephen Fry

Why did the mass  media almost always mention Stephen Fry, in reports of James Rhodes victory in the Supreme Court?  The victory clearing the way for the publication of his book Instrumental, which documents the homosexual abuse of James Rhodes during his childhood?

Was Fry’s intervention really necessary, in order for the public to tolerate Rhodes telling the truth about what happened to him? Will every other survivor of underage homosexual abuse henceforth need the sponsorship of a gay celebrity, to establish his credentials as not-in-the-least homophobic, before he’s allowed to write publicly about his ordeal?  You’d think so, judging by this precedent!

# WHAT A DIFFERENCE A GAY MAKES!

What a difference a gay makes!
Plenty for little cowards
Bought The Sun and the powers
Where I used to be blamed

I guessed a gay would do, dear
A ham.  In part.  On cue.  Queer.
My copyright got through, dear!
“Sins?”, you said.   You were fine.

What a difference a gay makes!
They’re zee Rainbow und zhey’re for me!
Guys whose ” lovin’ ” once tore me –
But that moment in court!  My book’s not a tort!

It’s heavy when you … find homos are agains’ you
What a difference a gay made!
(And how distant from true.)

Why Tesco should resist pressure to discriminate against Asher’s bakery

TescoBelfastTelegraph

The old maxim, “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”, was intended to restrain the lust of the outraged for vengeance, in order to prevent an escalation of conflict.

Earlier today, 719 people had signed a petition at Change.org, urging Tesco to punish Asher’s Baking Co Ltd, for having discriminated against a Mr Gareth Lee (whose occupation is said to be being activistly homosexual), in the matter of the decoration of a certain cake.

One cake.

One of a growing number of what the media have taken to calling “gay cakes”, mind you, so many of these “gay cake” staged court cases have there been, the world over.
