In response to Laura Perrins: Mary Portas and her infantile and totalitarian exercise in mind control, Don Benson wrote:
I think there is a simple truth here which is not being recognised: “gay” people are the ones who are not comfortable. In their heart of hearts they know that their preferences are problematic and eccentric; they instinctively know that what they are doing goes against the grain of nature and can never be described as normal or an equally valid alternative choice. They know that it is their heads which are at odds with the design of their bodies and that they can not easily be at peace in such a situation. They probably realise that the children they artificially obtain to satisfy the natural need they have to be part of a real family are the ones which will suffer the lack of a father or a mother.
And because they know all this they scream and shout all the louder, stamp their feet, hurl their insults, instigate their court actions and use every trick in the book to silence anyone who dares to point what they don’t want other people to hear. They have silenced debate and obtained preferential access to indoctrinate innocent school children, thus ensuring the complete capitulation of the next generation. And yet the more society gives them what they want the more their internal conflict hurts them because they can no longer blame society’s intolerance for their unhappiness.
Mary Portas is a bright intelligent and creative person; she has not always had it easy in her own life but shows remarkable resilience and energy. There are many prominent gay people like her. But such gifts as she has, and the prominence that she enjoys do not entitle her to enunciate on how the vast majority should accept her eccentric lifestyle – least of all when innocent children are involved.
