Everyone who thought that Janet Street Porter’s anti-Jan Moir thingy last Monday wiped The Daily Cunt’s homophobic slate clean will be dismayed (surely not surprised though) to see that they’re up to their usual dirty deeds just one week later.
Meet Pauline Howe – or ‘Pensioner Pauline Howe’ as The Daily Cunt call her. Well, Pensioner Pauline has led a blameless life of going to church, drinking cups of tea, gossiping with neighbours, getting married to a Baptist minister, taking in a little light Antiques Roadshow, having a secret crush on John Nettles, maybe even knitting the odd lady to go over the spare toilet roll… and distributing hateful Christian literature at Norwich Pride.
Oh, and writing abusive letters to the council to try and get the march banned, describing the gays on the march as ‘sodomites’ (how does she know? They might just be into oral) and bringing up the no doubt proven fact that homosexuality ‘contributed to the downfall of every empire’ (aren’t empires bad?) and adding that ‘gay sex is a major cause of sexually transmitted infections’ (yeah and another cause is straight sex. It’s kind of about the sex thing, you know).
But please don’t think that any of that is homophobic. No siree Bob. She told The Telegraph that her comments were an expression of her beliefs, not homophobia. Oh, well that’s alright then. Can’t actually find anything about sexually transmitted diseases in The Good Book (oh, no, there it is… sorry, that’s about some loaves and fishes) or homosexuality contributing to the downfall of the Roman Empire (surely that’s a downfall Christians would be in favour of or are we mixing things up?)
Anyway, the council found her comments possibly constituted a hate crime, her letter was sent to the police who paid her a visit and asked her to tone it down a bit.
‘Their presence in my home made me feel threatened,’ said the silly old cow. ‘It was a very unpleasant experience.’ Cue hundreds of Daily Cunt comments like the one from Mr Rolf Kitching of Gosport, Hampshire about how homosexuals are brainwashing our children, promoting their lifestyles, the usual.
Speaking of promoting our lifestyle, don’t forget the candlelit vigil against homophobia in Trafalgar Square on Friday after work following the stamping to death of a gay ‘pensioner’ a couple of weeks ago (now THAT’S ‘an unpleasant experience’, Pauline). As long as Pensioner Pauline doesn’t get it banned for bringing down the British Empire, that is.
