    Native Irish. We are still here.
    That we remember is not what actually happened, not history, but those hackneyed impressions they tried to hammer into our memories by constant repetition.

    Stop the diversion
    And just imagine how poorly this country would treat a gay, black traveler asylum seeker ( that the council did not provide stable for the horses) _ who now decides to trans . Outrageous, foot stamping , underwear protests etc..
    Its a disgrace, a new judicial commission should be appointed, A task force established and safe spaces created in every school, parish, public library , county shopping centre etc ,
    Sensitization and education on the subject must be initiated at kindergarten level and at least two weeks of programming of the Joe Duffy, Tubridy and what is her name ( Finucane) show should be allocated to build awareness of the subject. A new quango needs to be established and a team of specially trained garda , supported by armed response units where required and the ARW if really necessary created to deal with the enforcement of the new legislation that will be required.
    But most importantly it must all be PAID for by the ordinary tax payer , 95% of whom are people, in heterosexual relationships , trying to make ends meet and who do not give a toss about all of this BS.
    But new modern Ireland has got to be inclusive, diverse ( after all we have a mixed race gay toeshock) and we are so liberal and so cool that we are now beginning to look like a real Father Ted show.

    It may shock you to learn that gay people are also ordinary taxpayers trying to get by. Incidentally, I think your stat about 95% of taxpayers being in heterosexual relationships is probably a bit wide of the mark. 80% maybe - 95%...nope.

    It does not shock me that gay people may be ordinary taxpayers and wonder where you get the 20% of realtionships are now gay.. but we our unbalanced media coverage there si a tendency to ignore / exclude hetrosexual population which is the vast majority of the population.
    What is ignored is that we have the LGBTI etc. groups calling for provison of this and that services, guidelines for teachers on dealing with confused children who have this and that identity problems, provision of special facilites when we do not have adequate schools, trans people requiring taxpayers to pay for treatment and operations to sort out them out when they really need mental helath treatment. then we have someplonker, plonkess saying distribute free contraception to stop abortions etc,, Sure be totally crazy and give everyone sex doll so as thay can have safe then avoid pregnancy, abortions, STDs etc and of course let the taxpayer pay for itt, Its Father Ted again ..

    You know being in a relationship with someone of the same sex is not the only alternative to being in a relationship with someone of the opposite sex? It might shock you to learn than 100% of taxpayers are not in relationships.

    but we our unbalanced media coverage there si a tendency to ignore / exclude hetrosexual population which is the vast majority of the population.
    No there isn't. The vast, vast majority of characters in TV, film and literature are heterosexual. The vast, vast majority of relationships depicted are opposite sex. The vast, vast majority of relationships that feature in factual or human interest programming are opposite sex.

    What is ignored is that we have the LGBTI etc. groups calling for provison of this and that services,
    Yep. Usually necessary and justifiable services.

    guidelines for teachers on dealing with confused children who have this and that identity problems,
    Good. Teachers should be equipped to deal with issues like homophobic bullying or kids deal with gender identity issues.

    provision of special facilites when we do not have adequate schools,
    Not sure what this has to do with LGBT issues. If we do not have adequate schools, of course alternatives should be in place. That's not an LGBT issue, it's an educational quality issues.

    trans people requiring taxpayers to pay for treatment and operations to sort out them out when they really need mental helath treatment.
    Trans people get mental health treatment. You just don't like the views of the mental health professionals.

    then we have someplonker, plonkess saying distribute free contraception to stop abortions etc,,
    Good. Accessible contraception to reduce both unwanted pregnancy (largely a heterosexual issue, by the way) and STIs is to be welcomed.

    Sure be totally crazy and give everyone sex doll so as thay can have safe then avoid pregnancy, abortions, STDs etc and of course let the taxpayer pay for itt, Its Father Ted again ..
    No, you made that bit up.

    And no. Homophobia is not okay if you have a gay friend or if you dont.

    There's no doubt that the lavender mafia have huge influence in contemporary Irish culture. It's almost compulsory now that Fine Gael cabinet Ministers attend Pride rallies, lest they should be viewed as "homophobic" - whatever that means.
