that sounds like a very homophobic law, what is it with britain, youd think they would learn after murdering alan turing.
you can say the leader of the church is england is gay, you can say god is, but once you say it in arabic its racist. can i get a LIST of things that are suspect in britain if said in any language other than english, please? (not asking you personally, only rhetorically, but if you have one handy id like it all the same.) stupid laws are stupid.
There isn't a law that says you can't say those exact words, but if you do it in public police can (and did) get involved, because people were offended. Yeah it happened in my hometown. I'm no fan of who it happened to, but still a dumb justification and hyperbolic. British Muslims aren't on average the most tolerant of homosexuality though either (I repeat on average,)
So many stories in my home town..
I had a Muslim teacher who was supposed to teach maths but she was terrible at that and so I only really learnt GCSE maths in a three month period in sixth form before retaking the exam when I realised what having a maths teacher was like. Anyway the former teacher liked to talk about random crap sometimes like how homosexuality was unnatural and weird (but female homosexuality less than male of course because 'girls are friendlier anyway') just like the bisexual singer from T.a.T.u :
In September 2014, Volkova appeared as a contestant on a Ukrainian game show called*Lie Detector*and made comments considered to be highly*homophobic*towards homosexual men. The show's host asked the singer if she would condemn her son for being gay, Volkova responded, “Yes, I would condemn him because I believe that a real man must be a real man...a man has no right to be a ***.” In spite of this, she said, “Two girls together—not the same thing as the two men together. It seems to me that*lesbians*look aesthetically much nicer..." She also stated the she is not “against gays” and that they are still "better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts".Nevertheless, her perspective on male homosexuality sparked outrage in social media, where she was seen as extremely hypocritical andbiased.*Her former band member Lena Katina reacted by saying, "God is teaching us to live in love, to be tolerant and not to judge other people!...I think everybody should be free to love who they love and be with who they want to spend their life with!"*
But yeah the police are quite paranoid about chaos ensuing here, and perhaps rightfully so considering the tensions in this town between different groups (it's why she travelled here after all, from such a long distance.) But still 'God is gay' is being said all the time by young people these days. I mean this is all worlds apart from this kind of culture lol:
Also yes what happened to Alan Turing is very disturbing to me and I'm still angry about it. The UK is a fairly repressed culture, especially after the Victorian era so that manifests in numerous ways.
