Gay marriage guy gets Polish apology


News coming on the beatroot radar that the Polish Consulate in New York has just apologised to Brendan Fay, the gay guy who complained about use of his image in the recent ant-homo TV rant by President Lech Kaczynski.

The Consulate has said that Poland apologises for the ‘regretful incident.’

Brendan Fay – an Irish immigrant to North America, and, poetically, a resident in the Queens area of the Big Apple – is accepting the apology.

Expect this story to be all over the pink press. Kaczynski has a record of daft, and worse, comments and actions against gay people. He has now been hoist by his own stupidity.

There is now talk that the complaint was only consulted at foreign office level and so this is not an apology from the preZ but from underlings...bless

In the US, the Republican Party's base with youth has shrunk, due to capitalizing on homophobia. This young generation is raised on seeing gay TV characters on their favorite shows.

Is such a thing happening in Poland?

Not especially.

The younger more educated segment of the population is not especially homophobic but part of this is international peer pressure. They (unlike the Kaczynskis) have figured out that public gay bashing makes the country look out of date and backwards in the context of the EU. And not appearing backward is a _very_ strong motivating factor for the educated who actively worry about how the country is perceived internationally.

Granted, I don't watch a lot of Polish TV, but I had to suffer through an episode of Magda M once, and I believe one of the characters in the show is gay, but not "out gay". And my friends here are pretty open towards homosexuality, meaning tolerant and such, but even some of the "liberal" people that I work with still believe that gays shouldn't be teachers, or allowed to marry or have children. It IS slowly getting better, but there's still a long way to go before Poland is on the same par as the rest of the west. But still most of the "gay bashing" are done by the poorer, less educated type people. Football fans, etc.

"Michael Farris said"

No I didn't.

There was also a gay character on M jak Miłość who (coincidence?) sometime after PiS's parliamentary victory was _rapidly_ written out of the show. He was the victim of a violent attack after which he moved (back) to the US. Probably PiS's version of a happy ending.

Thats my problem, not yours. He answered, without smiling, Always. Then she walked on evenly. I didnt say there was. My approval or disapproval would be irrelevant. I cannot become involved in socalled practical matters. They cannot be reached by a rational argument. Another was Ragnar Danneskjold, who became a plain bandit.

It fed her every emotion, prodding her anger and settling an icy lacing on despair. Most of Jaraks men were stationed closely around the womens tower and the central court. His harsh words rode their storm, a garrote of meaning that made her gurgle. Radins mental warning didnt help. Hands closed over her shoulders, distantly felt. Be proud of what you just accomplished. With a pang, Eyrhaen pictured Tykir. Thats what youre happy about? Nialdlye stood to one side, directing. Steeling herself, she turned to face Brevin. He smiled at her glare, the red simmering behind the hazel of his eyes. Yelping, she twisted aside to look at Nialdlye, who held her hands up, palms out. She arched her back as best she could and screamed. Three sets of eyes focused on her as Tykirs cock hovered at her pussy. Then, when she started babbling, begging for more, he picked up speed. She put on her best devious grin. I have all the time in the world for you. Clearly, Eyrhaens choice was, indeed, a relief to him. I fell in love with you when I was only a shadow in the darkness. She nipped at his ear as he carried her through her bedroom door.

This time, Jarak bowed from the waist, his long white ponytail spilling over one shoulder. Salin told me that he was awake, but hes not come out of his suite. We may have even convinced ourselves that we dont feel what we feel for them. Nialdlye shook her head. Someones strong arms surrounded her, and a broad chest met her cheek.
