Equality & Diversity

According to the Telegraph a raft of new schemes will shortly be presented, aimed at promoting equality for homosexuals, such as recruiting more openly gay candidates to become MPs and making workplaces “gay-friendly”. Exactly how does one make a workplace "gay-friendly"? So being a homosexual, lesbian or of the trans-gender minority is a qualification for becoming an MP? Why cannot these people succeed as a result of their talents, rather than the fact they are different?

Personally, I have nothing against homosexuals, lesbians or those of trans-gender - each to their own -  however what I do object to is having their beliefs thrust down my throat. If they are not ashamed of their proclivities, why do they use a word that has nothing to do with the subject in question - and please don't tell me it is because they are happy! I am quite happy being in the majority, ie heterosexual, but I don't go round eliciting sympathy or special attention because of that.

It really is a queer world in which we now live!

All the legislation in the world will not prevent playground or office banter to the effect that gayness is weired or amusing at best. I suspect that most Gays, like Moslems, would rather trendy liberals presuming to speak on their behalf would do better to shut up and let them lead their own private lives, keeping their heads down.
