Fairytale Of New York Cont.

Writing about web page

It seems that BBC Radio 1 have now reversed their decision. All I can say is “Good”. I do have to pick up on this quote from the end of the article.

Veteran gay rights activist Peter Tatchell said Radio 1’s original actions were right. “The word faggot is being sung as an insult, alongside scumbag and maggot. In this abusive context it is unacceptable,” he said.

Grow-up! What has this got to do with gay rights? Gays have as much of a right not to be insulted as anyone else and you don’t hear any other rights groups compaining that they are insulted by this song.

Plus, at the time I don’t know if faggot even had the same meaning as it does now.

You can’t win!
