To Jonathan Chappellyour comment against my Pride rant was read with care and considered: after which i have decided to write a short retraction in part to what i said.
Your comments that your parents hate you for who you sleep with is upsetting and im sorry that they have not yet accepted you for what you are, but this could well be due to the stigma associated with gay people. A stigma i believe my comments supposed that PRIDE were doing very little to discourage. Similarly homosexuality may be viewed with unease by the public mainly because what it is associated with. It is gradually being accepted moreso, but the scene hardly puts to rest the fears of hetero public about the risk of disease and the promiscuous nature of homosexuals.
I apologise for any offense caused to you by my comments, however it is my belief and furthermore if all you have to personalise with is PRIDE it seems you are only seeking to promote your homosexuality much in the same way as Daffyd Thomas, and if this is the case i feel sorry for you, being only able to identify with your homosexuality is only going to alienate yourself further from the people who want to quote murder you for being gay… It is a sad day when all you have to identify yourself with is your sexuality… after all we would hate to promote the stereotype that gays only think about sex wouldnt we!!
