Oh dear the delicate affront still lingers. So I am not keen on watching gay  pride marches. My preference, that's all.

Who decides what and what should not be preferred? Is their preference more valid than mine in your book?

Is your view that if you are not totally for then you must be totally against applied to all other subjective matters then?

They say hate crime against gay people has escalated in recent years. Perhaps your attention should be directed towards the far more dangerous individuals who chose to perpetuate such crimes rather than somebody with my benign indifference to the whole issue. There's nothing in that level of homophobia that can give rise to attempted humour after all.

Or are you far too stuck on your hobby horse to be rational?

The trouble is that extremism snowballs quickly, especially now in the days of social media and likes. Someone posts what seems a benign negative comment about Gay Pride, this'll get a few likes. Another bloke will then negatively comment on gays in general. This'll get a few more likes. More malign people will get in on the conversation and so it goes on....

Political correctness (or being civilised as it used to be known) was a way of stopping homophobia/racism/general nastiness in its tracks, before it got a chance to progress and gather in like minded people. A way to stop it looking acceptable.

So we should all be wary of expressing the slightest opinion about such subjects for fear that it will be blown out of all proportion?

That's not political correctness that's moral policing.

We're all big boys and girls after all.

Political correctness is simply chattering class intolerance. 

It is a cousin of heresy, witch-hunting and any political doctrines you could care to name. 

The masses are so easy to influence. Trump did it, BoJo is doing it, the media do it etc etc. 

We need to think for ourselves. This is what instigated challenges to homophobia and racism. Their challenge now is to stay the right side of political correctness.

Back to the personal stuff again.

 

It's all you seem to know. Beginning with a cringe worthy attempt at humour and then justifying it with a little lecture..

And note..... It is practiced on the young who think it is them being radical. 

The young are malleable but energetic.

This is how it works, unfortunately - and the extremist elements are fully aware of it and use it to their advantage.  It makes ordinary middle of the road commenting very difficult because it is hijacked too easily by extremists and is one of the reasons why defenders of issues such as homophobia get so twitchy whenever someone says something about the subject that isn't totally positive.

It is becoming increasingly obvious that the mid ground - whether in politics, social issues or practically anything - is becoming very difficult.  Lack of real discussion on the issues is the result  and being seen to be totally ok with things is the only acceptable position to take. Sad really, so much debate is possible on so many issues, yet it can't happen because you have to be seen to be on the right side or you are condemned by the virtuous lobbiests and their hangers on who will not accept anything except total conformity to their world view.

Hardly surprising The Lollards Pit embraced the day as it is a pub run frequented by the LGBT community in the main.

Trump is the least politically correct person I can think of.
