Owen Jones Discovers Something Surprising About Human Sexuality

That the man is well into his 30s before he works this out is a bit of a surprise but there we go, no one’s been accusing Owen Jones of maturity these years. He has just uncovered something about human sexuality:

….and men associate feminine behaviour by men with being gay.

Quite remarkable. Anyone who’s ever been around the nightclub scene of a major city will be shocked, shocked, to find such behaviour going on.…

Social Beings Don’t Like Being Ostracised – Funny That

If we start from the obvious point about us human beings – we’re social beings – then all of what follows in this from The Conversation is blindingly obvious. Social beings like being social, they prefer not to be ostracised, cast out of society. Thus if society accepts some part of our make up, who we are, then we’re happier.

Are All LGBT Complete Snowflakes?

Or is it just the TUC assuming that all LGBT are such delicate flowers that the normal interaction of humans beings is something they must be defended from?

The reason for asking is a new report from the TUC talking about the sexual harassment of the LGBT at work. We get the usual weasel words, of course we do. But here’s the headline:

Owen Jones’ Fox And Hen Chicken Coop Protection Society – LGBT And Muslims Unite!

Israel Folau Discovers The Limits Of Free Speech For Christians About LGBT

Israel Folau is about to get sacked from both his jobs, playing rugby for Australia and the Waratahs. The reason being that he’s been making the standard historical Christian insistences about LGBT matters.

Now, I have to admit I’m perfectly fine with a world in which this can happen:

Cognitive Dissonance – The BBC Is 11% LGBT. The BBC Is Heteronormative

Cognitive dissonance is when someone manages to believe contradictory things. Sure, we all do it, it’s entirely human, helps us all get through the day. But we should still call it out when we see it.

As here at the BBC. They themselves tell us that the workforce is 11% LGBT, the more senior ranks 12% such. Great, excellent and who would be worried about that? But then they go on to insist that there’s a heteronormative culture at the BBC.…
