Ah, my tone. Of course. You're not actually reading the words then, or is this just an attempt at the moral highground?
As I said, I find the idea that it's automatically going to sexualised because their only association of it is in risque nightclubs ignorant. You say yourself below, no one knows. That's not intolerance, that's just pointing out ignorance based on assumption.
I've addressed this.
You've addressed this... "not reading the words". indeed. You can tell a lot of someone by their choice of language, tone etc.
I take your point re innuendo though. Took you long enough.
If this troop of entertainers were so set on providing "alternative" fun book readings, they should set up a Garda vetted group, build a base, rather than cashing in on whatever appeal or cachet 'Glitter Hole' has, and avoid provoking all the hand wringing, "bigotry" etc. Ive no issue with LGBT people around my kids, close friends are gay ( incidentally, one of the couple hates the drag scene, the other loves it), but not this lot in this role.
(or is there a bang of the Belfast cake of this?
* removes tinfoil hat).
And if the moral high ground has people verbalising concerns for putting 3yr olds in a room with Garda unvetted risqué adult entertainers, well, there you'll find me!
