‘Being a lesbian killed my mother’

*squish squish* Our workie isn’t happy because for the second time today he’s on his knees clearing up our caffeinated spillage after we read what is the second best headline of the day. This time we didn’t mis-read. Miriam Margolyes really did say that, or something along said lines.

‘Pparently the legendary actress who happens to be of a lesbos nature, blames her mother’s death on her coming out. Chitter chattering on BBC radio 4’s Desert Island Discs *hums that lovely tune* she said: ‘When I told my mother that I had had an affair with a woman, she had a stroke about three days later.’

*gasp*

She went on: ‘It caused the person I loved most in the world a pain she could not bear, and I have to take the responsibility for that.’

*weeps a bit*

Ooh, biscuits…

  2. Oh but ps. God that was funny. I know I really shouldn’t laugh but come on… An interesting mix of pathos and hilarity.

  4. This seriously isn’t a laughing matter. I’m bisexual, but my family and all of my relatives, especially my parents, are deeply homophobic. Once my mum even told me that if she ever found that I was gay, she’d shoot herself in the head (she looked dead serious, too). That totally killed my confidence, and to be honest I don’t think I’d ever be able to come out of the closet without causing any problems, at least until both of my parents die. I love my parents so much, but I wish they weren’t so homophobic. These are the kinds of parents that will just throw you out on the street, disown you and make you feel deeply responsible for the rest of your life based purely on something that isn’t your fault.

    Anyway, I’m actually deeply offended by the fact that you’re ridiculing this woman’s situation. I can totally relate to how she’s feeling, and trust me, it’s not nice at all. Consider yourself lucky that you have more accepting parents.

  5. If your parents love you – it will make no difference. If it does then you’re better off without their hatred. Enjoy your life – you only get it once

  6. Dearest Andy-
    Run.
    Run far away, and be who you are.
    As the CH4 said -you only get one life, and it’s yours to control. If you’re old enough to drive and vote and earn your own keep-
    Run.
    Run to Your Life, Young (wo)man.

  7. Andy: If they would throw you out and disown you and then make you feel guilty for their hatred, then they are not worthy of your love. Hard as it is you must live your life and if it proves too much for them to accept, so be it.

  8. Like it was a surprise. Surely the dungarees, pipe-rack and metal comb in the back pocket gave it away. Who’s she kiddin’?

  9. Andrew, honey, I don’t think they’re ridiculing her being a lesbian, but rather the retarded reaction from someone who’s obviously deeply bigoted.
    My parents didn’t speak to me for over a year when I came out, and I took it as a very good excuse to fuck off to London and live my life the way I wanted. If a parent can reject a child because they’re gay, then they don’t deserve to be a parent. We speak now, and get on very well in fact, but the gay thing is never mentioned. Their loss, and of course they now don’t have any right to tell me how to live my life.
    No-one should ever, ever feel bad for being gay. It’s the homophobe who is the ultimate loser – irrational hatred can never be excused.
    There endeth today’s lesson.
