Bill Withers - Harlem

I heard this in a shop on town today and thought it rocked. I couldn't believe it was Bill Withers, I always associated him with real MOR easy listening stuff because of Lovely Day. This is stompingly good.

He didn't die because he was gay.

He didn't die because he was gay.

I'm all for freedom of speech, I've no problem with anyone saying whatever they believe, you know, on a Newstalk Vox Pop or whatever, go for it. But Jan Moir through her sick and twisty little article in the Daily Mail, giving credibility to every other little sick twisted little hererosexist out there, frankly pisses me off. She seems to think that Stephen died because he was a homosexual.

Stephen Gately died because that was how it worked out for him, and it's sad. And that's how things go for families all over this country, suddenly, unexpectedly, losing people they love. He didn't die because he was gay.

We have our own Jan Moir here off course, Brenda Power, another individual who believes discrimination has a useful place in our society.

It doesn't bother me that Jan Moir has the opinion she has, it bothers me that, like Brenda Power, she's paid for it, her opinion pays her rent. Millions fork out daily to pay for her opinion, and companies like Marks and Spencers and Nestle pay to have their adds placed in these newspapers, thus further filling her bank account while she feeds the sick and twisty discriminatory thoughts of heterosexists out there who feel that their opinions are justified and credible, they read it in a major newspaper after all.

In defense of M&S and Nestle, they pulled their adds, from the article though, not the newspaper.

Go and complain right now at the Press Complaints Commission on the basis that it breaches sections 1, 5 and 12 of its code of practice. I have.
