I just seen on the BBC news website that there is such a thing as the LGBT adwards.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-42990791

As a G I find the concept of such an event extremely patronizing and condescending.

I get it's probably dreamt up my those irritating luvvie types for luvvies types and that most LGBT's couldn't care less about it.

But the irony of fighting for equality on the basis that we are the same as everyone else and then when you get that equality to then hold an event which completely contradicts that valid argument is just plain daft to me.

So ya, screw the LGBT awards.

I think it’s the LGBT community wanting to give a nod to people both gay and straight who have gone above and beyond to support a heretofore marginalized discriminated against minority group.
That’s all.
Nothing condescending or patronizing about it.

I'd say the organisers make a fortune.

I see LBGT history month is starting to become a thing. I swear, I actually think there are some people who prefer to be marginalized and are not happy unless they are being shunned by society.

I'm with you. "Straight white bloke day" has a certain ring to it.

We can run it in tandem with "steak and blow day"

There needs to be a White Male Heterosexual award subsection within that though, the most reviled species on the planet at the moment.
Worser then Hitler and Stalin rolled into one they do be!

Speaking as a white hetero male, I wish certain other white hetero males would shut the fnck up whinging about their victimhood fantasies.

We have something similar over here every October that recognise people and organisations that make a difference for the LGBT community, don't see an issue with them myself.
