Reader’s comment: All so vieux chapeau


In response to Will Jones: How long before speaking out is against the law?, 3aple wrote:

For years and years we have been encouraged by the PC to refer to our spouses as non-gendered ‘partners’, sniffily eschewing the traditionally sexist, heterosexual ‘husband’ and ‘wife’, because we are now all cool, hip, progressive and right-on. Until . . .

Until homosexual marriage was legally recognised. Suddenly the right-on BBC couldn’t wait to get women appearing who just happened to crowbar ‘my wife’, and men who crowbarred ‘my husband’, into the interview.

Course, once we failed to react to the shock of the old, and we heterosexuals started using the words again, it quickly lost all its glitter for the PC.

I see even Sandra Bernhard is saying ‘Where’s the fun in being gay today?’ Oh dear. It’s all become so vieux chapeau.
