Nah,we've always had narky,opinionated and confrontational fuckers....;-)
Agreed — they just seem far more miserable and projective as of late. ;-)
I think the argument is the punishment a homosexual could potentially face from the state because it's considered a crime. You are trying to use an argument that some private citizen commiting an act against another is the same as a nation state punishing one for being homosexual. It's a false argument.
That was not my argument.
My point was the original poster made a sweeping statement that was nonsense in that they were saying people could and would get executed for being gay, I posted the article from somebody who actually lived there to state that was not and has never been the case.
My point about people who are gay being beaten and even murdered in this country was that a person can still be victimised in our society because of their sexuality and as I said in a later post, change takes time and it was not that long ago being gay carried a prison sentence here, and as many attitudes have changed here, eventually they would in the UAE.
We in the west constantly wish to impose our values/culture on other societies and whilst we want to be seen as so much more progressive than other states/nations we forget our own recent history.
Anyhow this is a discussion for elsewhere on this forum.
Good post and a good place to get back on topic.
Fair enough. I was just confused I suppose because the talk went from the UAE's official position to civilians in the UK beating homosexuals. Thank you for explaining it
As far as the kits go I like home and away. Away is my and my 2 daughters favourites.
Another thread ruined.
Jesus! ..is this the new kit thread or what?
So I ‘registered my interest’ in the 125 anniversary kit several weeks ago.
It’s available from next Thursday iirc?
Does my registered interest mean anything or is it a free for all on Thursday?
Like this comment if you prefer the home kit with white name & numbers instead of navy.
