and appears to have just grouped together (among others) bisexual people, androgynous people, devil worshippers and people who like cats . . . characterizing all as "folk defined by 'odd' sexual practices"

1.) Please read column (but be warned . . . . don't have breakable object at hand or impressionable tots who you might not want to hear all the swear words you are bound to say, she seems a bit of a nutter)

It's not me. It's you
As a lesbian, I no longer want to be lumped in with a list of folk defined by 'odd' sexual practices
by Julie Bindel in The Guardian, Saturday November 8 2008

2.) Write to the author:

o via email at julie.bindel@guardian.co.uk
o or register (it free!) and complain online (as we have here)

The problem is, Ms. Bindel has managed to insult SO many people all in one article (cat fanciers? she doesn't like cat fanciers? is she SURE she's a lesbian?) it confusing as to what to say first!

But you may want to point out to her that it was primarily genderqueer people (of colour!) who rioted at Stonewall et. al. and that the Post-Stonewall LGBT leader who started the custom of having Pride Events that we now all celebrate annually world-wide was an out bisexual woman.

So actually it is more OUR movement and perhaps SHE may wish to leave if we offend her so much?

hi there, we went and read your post on the Mad Voter and then the entire world fell on our heads with people responding on other communities before we could get back to you

but yes, your article is quite good and certainly relevant

Thanks for giving the shout out. People who want rights for themselves, but not other people are as bad as those who denyed them rights in the first place.

some Social-worker types see it as almost a like a group version of the old problem of the molested and battered child --- that a lot of THEM grow up to be molesters and batterers

same thing here, the despised minority groups "grows up" to be as or more bigoted and hateful to those they perceive as further down the societal totem pole from them

Well, that was kind of off-pissing. (Bindel's article, not your entry.) Personally, I think that the more people we have under our tent--including straight-but-not-narrow people like my husband--the louder we are as a whole!

A, androgynous, b, bisexual, c, cat-fancying d, devil worshipping. Where will it ever end?

She has no problem with these groups as much as she was being sarcastic about the illogic of forced free-association of anything and anyone. I think, apart from the fact that as a lesbian she's just as odd as any bisexual in this world, that she made good points. This movement, which started as a banding together of homosexuals, bisexuals and the transgendered out of necessity, is getting a little silly. Broadly embracing radical-left politics and various groups under a queer umbrella in an attempt to force it all down the throat and at the expense of every member of the original movement who might not agree. It's getting out of hand; the movement is destroying itself by throwing sense and pragmatism out the door.

You know why queer culture is dying? Because of this. In an attempt to modernize and stay relevant, the movers and shakers of our fair movement is destroying us by driving away anyone who isn't a radical, who doesn't agree with each and every fad the queer establishment feels like adopting.

Juie Bindel is suffering from BRSS - Bindel Raymond Stein Syndrome
In ordet to undetstand Julie Bindel you have to remember that she didn't identify as a lesbian until well after puberty wehn she first got sa whiff of the estrogenic phemerones of tother lesbians.
Since then her constant oral sex has ingested so much estrogen that homeopathically her body has transformed into testosterone until now she resembles the 1970 East German Shot Putters facially and has a considerable stiffened up bady but unknown to her or perhaps unacknoweldged this testosterone has been masculinising her brain until nowshe thinks like a bloke and naturally like a pedophilic bloke which is perhaps why she is so vocal about the few (but far too many pedos) in society. This condition is known as Malignant Pedophilia and is exactly the same as the Malignant Bisexuality that casued such as Roy Cohn to denounce homosexuals during the McCarthy era while beinga closet home himself..he ws outed by dying of Aids.
