Takes one to know one

A minority publication in the UK is clearly happy to stereotype another targeted group:

"A gay magazine which described immigrants as 'criminals of the worst kind' and Islam as a 'barmy doctrine' has been condemned as racist by other gay rights groups. According to the magazine of the Gay and Lesbian Humanist Association (Galha), Islam is growing 'like a canker' in the UK through 'unrestrained and irresponsible breeding'.

"The magazine also published an article endorsing the rightwing populist Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn, and described immigrants as 'ill educated and culturally estranged Third Worlders'.

The writer claims Islam is "homophobic". Perhaps he'd like to also condemn Christianity for centuries of persecution against Jews.

Shows even gays have human foibles.

I knew a gay guy who did 3 tours in Vietnam, voluntarily. In the infantry - having to kill occasionally. Loved it there. He continued in the Australian Army after that.

As you, sort of, suggest stereotypes often mask exceptions.

Never trust a guy who likes to kill

My brother is gay. He votes Liberal (which I most certainly do not), would rather eat uncrushed glass than get married and thinks that all Muslims should be banned from living in, let alone migrating to Australia.

This idea that gay men are all purse-carrying sensitive card-carrying multiculturalism zealots is such a bizarre and insulting insult, and so ignorant about most of the gay people I know it's hilarious!

I sent this article to my brother who is appalled that the writer would get sacked!
