REALITY IS NAUSEATING.

Byline: GEORGE TYNDALE

THE campaigning charity Stonewall monitored 168 hours of BBC peak-time programming and discovered just six minutes in which homosexual lives were given what it perceives as "realistic" treatment.

A further 32 minutes involved the likes of Jeremy Clarkson and Anne Robinson either making jokes or indulging in derogatory remarks. Homosexual people living in stable relationships were "almost invisible", claims Stonewall.

Could this be because stable homosexual relationships are invisible in real life?

Given the chance to "marry" in civil partnerships, only a few thousand sodomists and lesbians have so far turned up. That is well below one-hundredth of one per cent of the population.

Yet a doctor appearing on BBC radio in recent days said that it was quite common for his homosexual patients to admit to 20 sexual partners a week.

The "realistic" picture of homosexuality is simply too nauseating to be portrayed on TV, peak-time or any time.
