Nice job if you can get it…(?)…promulgating myths and prejudices, that is.

Sometimes its a wonder if someone makes this kind of thing up just so a whole bunch of people, particularly the media can create prejudice in order to exploit and make money from it. When the hell did bisexuals suddenly become the newly chastised and abominable ‘thou shalt not speak of ‘sexuals’ of the naughties? Sorry I meant noughties. Now, apparently according to this ridiculous article, there is a ‘coming out’ process for bisexuals. The main issue is why do these people really feel the need to reveal or promote their sexuality at work as some given human rights issue: that it has become a necessity for everyone to push their sexual orientation in someone’s face? “I’d love to accept this job Mr Rogers but first you must understand I’m bisexual”. What happened to privacy and keeping it to yourself? There is no law that says you have to state your sexual preference when taking on a job is there? Am I still living on planet earth? Let’s all go shouting about our private sexual lives and preferences in the workplace, thereby forcefully creating an equal and opposite reaction, which is almost always malformed in the guise of prejudice. Then society will have to create laws to protect bisexual rights, defend bisexuals against the crude language of prejudices such as “this no place for a …em…..lover of more than one sex confusing orientated…person….thingy…..”.  But most of all, let’s just give ‘them’ a space where they can safely discuss and promote their sexuality, which of course should be anywhere, including the workplace. Its the right of a bisexual after all to tell everybody what is happening with their sex life. Let’s just off the workplace and call it the sex place and be done with it. I don’t meet someone or go somewhere for the first time and say “Hello every[body], I’m Mr Rogers, and I’m a heterosexual!”

We need more unemployed……politicians!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on May 8, 2013 by Paul Timms

How is it that politicians can demonize the unemployed on welfare. Is it because they are such hard working, honest citizens or could it just be that they are part of ‘the elite’ that are privileged enough to never have to worry about being unemployed. We all know that when they resign from their lofty positions they are set up for life. They never have to work or worry again. You never see an ex-politician working in a McDonald’s, call center or selling cancer insurance to vulnerable women. Its easy to demonize the unemployed and talk about statistics and consistently suggest that all problems arise from the ground up. Very rarely do they walk in the shoes of those who not only cannot find work, are unable to work or those who have also collapsed mentality from the struggle of consistently trying to make their lives work for the better,  and are knocked back by a complex number of reasons – to say its just as easy as “get a job” is really a shameful oversight and being starkly hypocritical of everything the government spews forth from its venomous mouth. Sociological research which the government are so fond of using to back up their claims about the condition of British society and unemployment, trends and so forth, seems to conveniently erase these ‘complex reasons’ that prevent people from finding work. For instance, suddenly, under this current government regime, psychological factors no longer play a part. According to Cameron and his clowns, there is only one sickness according to their professional and collective prognosis – laziness! 
It has been said before, “what this country needs is more unemployed politicians”!
