When is a homophobe not a homophobe? When she says she’s not a homophobe, silly!

Will gays and blacks please not use this water fountain, signed your friend Amanda Platell

I am not a homophobe, says the Daily Mail’s Amanda Platell in her column on Saturday. Oh, OK.

And then she tells you why gays are not fit to look after children. She might as well say she’s not a racist but would rather black people sat at the back of the bus. Honey, you’re a homophobe, start dealing with it. Self-knowledge is a wonderful thing.

According to Ms. P, science is proving – literally as we speak! – why children shouldn’t be brought up in a same sex household. It’s why she backed that heroin addict’s parents in their bid to adopt their grandchildren despite the fact they had been ruled out by experts. The reason, because the Mail does not usually champion the rights of drug abusers or their families, was simply because the couple who did clean up after this heterosexual mess by adopting those children were gay. Would it be fair at this point to say that the Nazis ‘proved’ Jews and gypsies – oh and homosexuals! – were scientifically inferior as well?

Stop press: new evidence in suggests that – hang on, one cotton-picking minute – some of Ms. Platell’s best friends are gay (henceforth to be known as the SOMBFAG Defence though quite what these gay ‘friends’ are doing hanging around with a renowned homophobe is something they obviously need to discuss with their therapists.)

Well, that’s a horse of an entirely different colour. Add to that she has actually been IN PERSON to a gay civil partnership ceremony (though whether the words ‘help me’ broke out in whelts on her skin is not reported), and is so close to one gay man she considers him her brother. Lowest of all shots is the claim that because two of her gay ‘friends’ died of AIDS she couldn’t possibly be a homophobe.

Handy tip: anyone who thinks gay men and lesbians are in any way inferior to an equivalent straight person is by definition a homophobe. And there we rest our Louis Vuitton case, milord.

  1. She is the worst kinds of homophobe – one who is in denial of her bigotry.

  2. This woman is vile, end of. But then she’s one of those self-obsessed, egomaniacal types who just says anyone who disagrees with her is just ignorant. Now that is the defence of the indefensible.

  3. I’d have so much more respect for her (which would still be a negligible amount, naturally) if she just came out as a proud homophobe. Excuse the pun.

  6. Her fag bangle was wheeled out in last month’s attitude to say how amazing and lovely Amanda is and how she can’t possibly be a homophobe if she hangs round with him. Note to fag bangle: if you like flagellation of the self, ditch Amanda Platitude and head straight to the Hoist. Do not pass GO etc.

  7. People who think they’re not homophobic because they go to gay clubs are like those white rich folk who used to go to Harlem in ermine and pearls to listen to jazz in the 20s. Let’s just say, they weren’t there to push forward equality laws.

  8. She is a despicable human being. Harsh, but true. And I’m yet to be wrong on anything. In my entire life.

  9. The Nazi ‘science’ comparison is a valid one; Bernard’s Harlem analogy is an even better one. Kudos, bitches. Oh — and Miss Platell went all the way to the tasteless brass ring of “gay friends died of Aids” — one wonders if *she* thinks her friends wouldn’t have had teh-bad-aids if they weren’t ‘dirty gays’. Cunt.
