Recently I have read discussions about the sex life of former Prime Minister Edward Heath. Many of these refer to him as a pederast and a sexual predator whereas another , a news website , excitedly described him as a "homosexual with a liking for young boys" .
Now, non of us actually know the truth, and indeed Heath may have been a gay pederast but what I take exception to is the blatant linking of the words homosexual and child abuser.
I think it's lazy and it's dangerous.
When Jimmy Saville got outed as being a nasty abuser of young girls the media didn't once refer to him as that " middle aged heterosexual with a thing for teenage girls" so why lump gay men in with abusers of male children ?
The misinformed, the bigots, the confused, and the just plain thick all too many times confuse bog standard gay men with the abusers of kids.....sure abusers of both sexes are out there and have always been out there .
Just don't associate one with another eh?
Okok I know.....it's all a bit heavy for a Trelawnyd smallholder
So I shall leave you with my entry for the Class of " homemade greetings card"
Kinda good eh?
I'm a right fucking sad sack
