  • Serction 28

    Section 28 was a law making homosexuality a criminal offence

    After Section 28 homosexuality was decriminalised

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    I thought section 28 outlawed promotion of homosexuality, rather than homosexuality itself or homosexual acts--those were decriminalised in 1967, but I might be a bit muddled about section 28.

      Just had a quick look and it forbade local authorities from promoting homosexuality. It was enacted in 1988 and also affected maintained schools.

        Basically, it was a law that prevented teachers from telling schoolchildren that it's okay to be gay.

          You could be right Staffslad that it is promotion not the practice thereof

            I am glad that we have moved forward since 1967 and that same sex couples are accepted a lot more legally now, and now they can marry each other is even better. I am all for equality so that everyone is equal.

              Same here.

              Did anyone see the recent programme about AIDS & it's effect on the gay community in the 1980s.

                  Sounds like a 1960s Guinness slogan.

                    It’s a 1970s slogan I think. It means what it says- a man is a man whatever his orientation. I like it, but I can’t be doing with LGBT: I find it degrading personally and I don’t like the way it lumps together groups of people who have nothing in common. Most people don’t even know what it stands for: Let’s Go Bananas Together? Lettuce, Garlic, Bacon & Tomato?
                    Pleeeeaaase!

                      Thank goodness for that. I don't like the LGBT acronym either.

                        Great minds think alike.
                        The LGBT acronym is turbo-charged PC.

                          To me LGBT sounds like a garden railway.

                            ... Or a forerunner to the KGB ... although that was the NKVD!

                            Most gay men don't identify at all with LGBT. It's a lesbian-feminist cult. For me the label conjures up images of left-wing 'gender-neutral' robots (with recorded female voices to be PC) waving rainbow flags and chanting meaningless slogans.

                            That makes me think of a spoof 1970s scientist-fi title: 'Do Female Androids Smell of Fish?'
                            J.G. Ballard perhaps, or Philip K. Dick?

                              Marc Almond also hates 'the LGBT thing'. I did say great minds think alike.
