After acidentally wandering into some dark places on the internet, I've been pondering the connections between homophobia and abusing women again, and ended up (as is so often the case) getting upset about how these online and media spaces are reflected in the real world.
Statement from the Mobos "Musicians and artists have always reflected the feelings of the wider community they come from, regardless of whether or not everyone wants to hear what is being said on a street level."
"Helping to make homophobia cool and acceptable is dangerous. It gives a green light to bigotry; making disordered, maladjusted young straight men feel OK about physically venting their rage against lesbian and gay people." Peter Tatchell responds.
I should spend more time over at Outrage. They're so constructive.
Yay, Daleks! Eurobats! The Sound of Spam!
On an utterly unrelated note, does anyone know of a club with a decent chill-out room?
