like girls", was the joint assertion apropos of nothing in
a Westminster lift by Tory machos Sebastian Coe and William Vague.
What could they have been trying to prove?
is becoming increasingly disturbing to witness the mass assumption
that homosexuality equals tolerant attitude. Clearly there should
never be a stereotyping of one sexuality, gender, ethnicity or hairstyle
as a narrow political sensibility.
gay right-wingers seem to have occupied the upper echelons of the
Gory party for most of the 20th century (at least) and there appears
to be no let up in the right wing agenda benders that are either
open about their sexuality (the Wets like Matthew Parris, Michael
Brown and Ted Heath. Ooops, actually, the esteemed ex-PM Tedmond
(Hampstead) Heath never quite betrayed/confessed what the tabloid
euphemism confirmed bachelor actually refers to but
still remains a one-nation tosspot, just) or rabid Thatcherite/Josephian
eugenecists who would never go public but can rarely control their
urges at party conferences, where several blue rinses revert to
their natural white at the sight of the likes of Nigel Evans passionately
snogging a suitably submissive young intern with his twisted chops
in the lobby of the main hotel. Dont worry, William dressed
him down accordingly.
a life-sized doll of Rudolph Hess with detatchable genitals is an
erotic essential in the foreplay, then, politically, something is
this context, homosexual behaviour is restrictively compartmentalised
and the proximity to power and powerful figures in the matronly
Mother of all Parliaments seems to add to the elitist insularity
of male politicians on the right and far right. This extension of
the public school ethos suggests some schizophrenic dimensions to
existence as a sexual being.
of the full extent of personality as a multi-faceted individual
(which includes all of us) accommodates the breathtaking pre-judgements
of people based on superficial differences of race, class and (how
ironic) gender that so characterises fascist thought and is diluted
for the sake of political presentation in the Conservative party.
Smiths ascension to the summit of this heap of reactionary
white supremacists and coked Christians has allowed a closer inspection
of the ideologIcal warts that abound this society-as-business, sermon-sense
bunch of political piss purveyors.
has a sexual dimension that is emotionally linked to the desire
to repress people on the grounds of difference and the status of
the homosexual in this context is ambiguous to say the very least.
If there is an element of yourself that you have been socialised
into recognising as stigmatised and wrong, then it is easier to
take this frustration out on other groups within society who are
also singled out for prejudice by the same warped value system.
Big Issue story a couple of years ago about the group of BNP activists
in Bristol who were found dead, rigid, in the train position and
with nooses around their necks was an illustration of a demented
desire. Nowt wrong with s&m and/or homosexuality but when a
life-sized doll of Rudolf Hess with detachable genitals is an erotic
essential in the foreplay, then, politically, something is awry.
sexual act involves an object and agent; the submissive and the
dominant. An emotional framework that is the perfect canvass for
the expression and interpretation of unrealised ambition. Nothing
wrong with a good suck and lashings of kinky improvision. As long
as youre not publicly espousing views that promote the suppression
of such social and sexual expressionism.
