People who call gay sex ‘disgusting’ will be allowed to stay in the UK Independence Party.
The word \”liberal\” has rather changed its meaning in recent years but UKIP\’s attitude to all of this stuff is the properly liberal one. One of toleration.
Consenting adults want to shag each other? Carry on but try not to frighten the horses. Coonsenting adults wish to be carnivores/vegetarians/gay/hetero/polyamorous/shag gingers/eat locusts/run a model train set?
Carry on and try not to frighten the horses.
You have every right to run your life as you wish, up until that point that your lifestyle impinges upon the freedoms of others to do the same. And we all have to tolerate your choices as well. It\’s called being liberal, see?
But this toleration, this liberality, does not mean that we must approve of any of your choices, celebrate them, applaud them. Nor does it mean that we cannot describe any or all of them as disgusting.
Indeed, the more that we think whatever it is that you like to do is disgusting and the less we interfere in your ability to do it the more liberal we are being.
After all, it\’s pretty easy to be tolerant of the things that you already approve of, isn\’t it?
