I\’ve just had a Facebook request (no, I don\’t log into it) asking that the \”The Daily Mail should retract Jan Moir\’s hateful, homophobic article\”.
OK, it\’s a bit strong but…..I can imagine the same writer saying exactly the same things about someone who was in an open heterosexual relationship and then died in the same manner.
So, umm, \”homophobia\” I\’m not sure sticks. It\’s the \”shagging someone you\’re not married to while the person you are married to is dying on the sofa\” bit that seems to concern, not the implements or orifices that were being used to do the shagging.
And to claim that \”some homosexuals have open relationships therefore criticising open relationships is homophobia\” is simply nonsense.
