I knew Pappa John was a bigoted pizza company but Dominos is news to me. Glad I use Four Star. What is it with Pizza companies and bigotry?

Yeah, that should make the legislation easier, and hopefully it will arrive sooner because of it.

Comedy time with Breda

Quote:
Seven hundred and thirty-four thousand, three hundred people did not vote No to love and equality. They are just as generous and inclusive as their
neighbours who voted Yes, and just as fond of their gay relatives. In fact, some of them are gay themselves.
Yep. They voted to stop people being able to do something they disapproved of. Really, really tolerant that is.

Quote:

We do not have to admire the fact that the campaign may have lasted weeks, but the soft coverage of gay icons and celebrities and “human interest” stories pushing the Yes side have been going on for years, with the enthusiastic collusion of the media.
The universal translator has this as "De Libirul meedja!!!11!!!!!"

Quote:

The same Government presided over the disintegration of mental health
services – everything from removing guidance counsellors from school, often the first to pick up serious problems – to decimating the psychiatric services. The hypocrisy is stunning.
....and they wanted the ghey marry too? Kill them, kill them all!!!!!!!!!!

Quote:

Yet certain facts remain facts no matter how often they are denied. Every
time two men bring a new child into the world, they need to use surrogacy. Every time.
Whats that thing some people do? A-dop? A-dop-shun? Breda should ask one of her mates in the institute about it. The fella. He's bound to know something about it.

Some day, there will be a young Irish woman wandering the streets of
Copenhagen. She will have been raised by her lesbian mother and her partner, both of whom she loves dearly, and who are great mothers

I'd offer a prize for anyone who guesses why she picked Copenhagen, but I can only guess meself.

The full whinge

The comments are pure comedy gold on that. Loads of "Satan laughing and the maniacal laughter of the damned" stuff, also the "gay world and it's horror stories". Fantastical!

Weren't they talking about how the vikings are invading again by having sperm as their largest export or something?

Its a great Idea, sperm travels far better than babies. The nuns really should have asked for their advice on best ways of shipping out people.

Isn't wasting sperm a sin anyways?

Breda really needs to consult with her sky-god and get his/her opinion on the matter.

Just back from a visit to my parents.

My mother isn't a happy bunny at all.

"Well, *we* fecking lost."

That's democracy for you.

"Hmph, it was all the voters who came back home to vote Yes that won it."

I explain how, if that's the case, you'd be able to walk across the Irish sea without getting your feet wet so many ferries would be needed.

"Hah! Typical you and your smart-@rsed answers! You voted Yes didn't you?"

Of course (Points at Irish Examiner next to her with photos of happy people celebrating) Isn't it grand to give some joy and happiness to people and it didn't cost me anything more than some shoe leather?

(Mutters something about how it'll all end in tears and changes the subject).

That's me out of the will then and no mistake. Voting "Yes" is tantamount to coming out as gay in her eyes.

I feel a support-group coming on for people who have difficult relatives.

Popette rang up last week with nine-foot flames coming from her ears - every talking point neatly regurgitated from the poisonous pens of BOB, DQ, JW, RM and that Bruce Arnold clown - and managed, only just, to stop before she declared open war upon her entire extended family.

I hear you. Way back in the mists of time when I was in my late teens, my mother informed that "If you turn out to be a queer, you're no longer welcome in this house." Luckily I'm not so I still had a roof over my head although none of my girlfriends ever met with her approval so I might as well have brought men home for all the difference it would have made. I was also to report if anyone I met was a Protestant so she could update her dossier matching certain surnames to a certain religion. Imagine if I'd brought home a gay Prod!

I should really invent a time machine shouldn't I?
