HOMOPHOBIA RIDES AGAIN

The murder of two young girls has again sparked off the justified fears of pedophiles and child molesters. In turn there have been those who once again make an unjustified link between these horrific events and homosexuality.

Demands to close down internet sites, chat rooms, message boards and so on plus demands to return to the pre 1967 days with homosexuality made illegal are heard every time a child is molested or murdered.

As I have written before there is no link between being gay and a wish to harm children. Some molesters may indeed be gay but in fact they are more likely not to be. Children are not at risk from the vast majority Gay men or women. By the same token they are at risk from a small percentage of straight people of both sexes.

This fact does not however matter to those whose screeching reaches a peak every time an abduction or worse of a child happens. They are not people who can be reasoned with. They want every minor discretion in any sexual matter regardless of whether it involves an under age person or not to result in the person involved being placed on a sex offenders register and that register to be a public document.

This is a dangerous route to go down. People who hurt children are sick and need help and, yes, possibly confinement. Using their existence as an excuse to harass and persecute millions of other people on the grounds of their sexuality is, however,  totally unjustified.

The homophobes don't care of course. Linking us with bad things in the world suits their agenda which is to see us all swept away in some way. Stoned to death as in Saudi Arabia perhaps ?
