“Having a sexual orientation is bigoted”

Stonewall is losing friends.

In case your memory of it has faded that’s from the BBC report on the coercion of lesbians to have sex with men who call themselves lesbians.

Stonewall is the largest LGBT organisation in the UK and Europe. I asked the charity about these issues but it was unable to provide anyone for interview. However, in a statement, chief executive Nancy Kelley likened not wanting to date trans people to not wanting to date people of colour, fat people, or disabled people.

In other words ugly cruel bigotry. In other words Nancy Kelley of Stonewall is saying sexual orientation is ugly cruel bigotry. What do the L and the G stand for again?

She said: “Sexuality is personal and something which is unique to each of us. There is no ‘right’ way to be a lesbian, and only we can know who we’re attracted to.

“Nobody should ever be pressured into dating, or pressured into dating people they aren’t attracted to. But if you find that when dating, you are writing off entire groups of people, like people of colour, fat people, disabled people or trans people, then it’s worth considering how societal prejudices may have shaped your attractions.

“We know that prejudice is still common in the LGBT+ community, and it’s important that we can talk about that openly and honestly.”

In other words if you’re a lesbian and you don’t want to have sex with men, you’re a bad person and you should feel bad. Says Stonewall in the person of its CEO.
